> 43

Sorry for the lack of updates, I wanted to do some Xmas and New Year's posts, but things didn't quite work out. And yes, still working on the redesign...

This week has been pretty crazy so far! Fox News Twittered that 'Bill O'Reilly is Gay' (hackers), Britney Spears wanted to 'update you all on the size of my vagina. Its about four-feet wide with razor sharp teeth' (also hackers), Macworld declared 'Steve Jobs is dead' (even more hackers, 4chan apparently), and iTunes has gone DRM-free. That last one is actually true, though it may be the hardest to believe. Oh, and Barack Obama was giving away free gas and Rick Sanchez is high on crack. But you knew that already.

Anyway, I wanted to show you guys something I thought was pretty damn cool. Credit for this goes to the Reddit post, How many horns on a unicorn? Thanks Google!

Did you know that Google has a built in calculator? If you enter '1 + 1' into Google, it will give you the answer: 2 (go ahead, try it). Now, what's cool is that you don't actually need to use numbers, Google comes built-in with an understanding of certain concepts, so if you enter 'the number of horns on a unicorn' you get the answer: 1. It works with other concepts as well - as any good geek knows 'the answer to life the universe and everything' is 42. So, as Redditor AusIV illustrated, if you enter 'the number of horns on a unicorn + the answer to life the universe and everything' Google will return the result - 43!

As willis77 so eloquently pointed out, this can be taken to some wonderful extremes, 'number of horns on a unicorn acre in tea spoons per light year' (7.76750034 1024 US teaspoons per light year).

Too friggin' awesome.
