Hello readers! My name is Max T. , and I will be writing the TOP 10s list column. I will more or less take things you THINK you know about, and turn them around into something awesome. So, let’s start with something common: GOOGLE.
#10: Type into the search engine “Do a barrel roll.”
Just trust me, this is really awesome.
#9: Google does their employees laundry.
I was a little surprised when I heard this. Apparently, the Google HQ has a gigantic Laundromat. They’ve been doing laundry since they started in 1995.
Google purchased 200 goats to control the lawn at their headquarters in San Francisco. In the words of our Editor-In-Chief: “They are impeccable strategists.”
This is a very important number. Google controls two percent of all the world’s servers. And when the world has over ten trillion servers… that’s a lot of servers.
#6: The YAHOO! Mistake.
Yahoo had the option of buying Google in 1997 for a price of only $1,000,000. They declined. Today Yahoo is worth $2,000,000, and Google is worth ten times that! Great move by the guys at Yahoo…
#5: The GOOGLE doodle.
The first Google Doodle was a stick-man behind the logo. It was supposed to show that the creators of Google had gone to something called the ‘Burning Man’ Festival!
#4: Everyone in the world.
Everyone in the world will perform four million Google searches in their lifetimes. ‘Nuf said.
#3: Google’s vast achievements.
Again, sarcasm. Google is the first website to successfully make it’s homepage available in every language in the world.
#2: Google, the number.
Google is a misspelled version of “Googol”, which is a one with one hundred zeros. According to the ancient Indians, this was how many humans would have to be stacked on top of each other for someone to make a ladder to heaven. Nice people.
And the number one strangest thing about Google…
#1: Stan the Dinosaur.
Google has a triceratops skeleton in their headquarters named Stan. He is Google’s official dinosaur. Even if he is a skeleton.
Thanks for tuning in!
I REQUEST COMMENTS. IF I REACH FIVE, I WILL LET YOU GUYS PICK THE SUBJECT OF THE NEXT LIST.
