Type in "askew" and your page 'leans' to the right a bit. Searching for anything else via Google puts it back to where it was
Type in "zerg rush" and your search page returns with 'O's eating the search results. Clicking each 'O' three times stops this
Type in "blink html" into your Google browser.
Type in "answer to life, the universe, and everything," and Google has a pretty clear answer
Type in "the loneliest number" in the search box and some fun Google tricks show you a calculated number

Use quotation marks to search for an exact quote and its origin

you could simply frame the snippet that you did know in quotation marks and plug it into Google
More often than not, you’ll receive the full song lyrics as well as author, when it was first released, and other identifying information.

Find related sites

Using Google, you can use a little known command that will bring up sites related to a specified site
This comes in handy, especially if you really enjoy a particular site, and you’d like to see if there are others that are similar
Use “related:” to find sites that are similar; for example, “”.

Type “Flip Coin” to Bring up Google’s Coin Toss Simulator

e won’t say this is the most revolutionary thing Google has ever done,
but it’s definitely the most revolutionary thing they’ve done for those Friday nights where you
and your buddies can’t settle on one set of plans and also can not decide whether to bet it all on black or red?
Leave it up to Google fate. Need help picking the next bar? Problem solved. Steak or chicken? Google’s got you ;-)

Google Earth

Google Earth is a computer program that renders a 3D representation of Earth based primarily on satellite imagery. The program maps the Earth by superimposing satellite images, aerial photography, and GIS data onto a 3D globe, allowing users to see cities and landscapes from various angles. Users can explore the globe by entering addresses and coordinates, or by using a keyboard or mouse. The program can also be downloaded on a smartphone or tablet, using a touch screen or stylus to navigate
