    If you go to and search 'A long time ago in a galaxy far far away', the results will appear in a Star Wars opening style crawl, complete with audio. It worked for me in Chrome but not in Firefox. Many Bothans died to bring us this information. Just kidding, allege... / Continue →

    This is a US map showing an 'embarrassing' search term that each state has made significantly more than all the others in the last 11 years. As you can see, South Carolinians want to hear a $6/minute made up story about their future, Georgians want to cook meth, Alabamians wan... / Continue →

    This is a parody video created by the folks at Rooster Teeth imagining if Microsoft's Bing developed a self-driving car. It was cute enough for a watch. I liked the last minute. The last minute is always the best. Take sex for example. You can't argue with that. Keep goin... / Continue →

    So you can play Pac-Man in Google Maps right now by scrolling to an area with a lot of streets and clicking the Pac-Man icon in the lower left corner. I just spent thirty minutes eating ghosts in my neighborhood and I wouldn't change it for the world. Now I'm going to go play... / Continue →

    Google recently hired a camel named Raffia to carry one of its 360-degree Trekker cameras to capture a street view of Abu Dhabi's Liwa Oasis. Not a bad idea, Google, but I would have hired a flying carpet and captured the images while simultaneously making love to a beautiful ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger, actually legible version HERE. This is the map of the internet cartographered by DeviantARTist JaySimons. I'm sure there's something to learn by looking at it, I just didn't pick up on any of it. Probably because I started daydreaming about how cool it would be... / Continue →
