. . . So awesome?

Just go to Google with your speakers on and click the Freddie Mercury tribute. At least while it's still up. I'll provide a link to it in their archive later, if I think of it.

I don't mind Google taking over the world all that much. If someone has to do it, Google can.

The real reason why Bing couldn't replace Google: There's just something horrible sounding if someone says things like "Have you ever binged yourself?" and "I bing myself all the time."

Alright, you lazy bums can go look up Google doodles in their archive sometime. The animation doesn't seem to be immediately available, so your loss, suckers.

Though I really liked the 110th Anniversary of the Lisbon Tram on August 31.

Ah ha, they have now provided a link to the page itself with animation. So you can watch. And blink repeatedly, or raise and lower your eyebrows in varying patterns, or what-have-you.

It appears to be a Youtube video in the background. If you would rather watch different kinds of Youtube videos, you could instead watch Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman have fun with The Labyrinth. This is a perfectly logical alternative for me to bring up in this context.

This is something I have said on several occasions.
