    Got a moment to kill? Try this:

    Go to Google’s homepage. Type in the words “Do a barrel roll.” Click Enter.

    (Brief pause while you try it. Then please come back.)

    Lol! :D

    Google released it as an Easter egg on Nov 3, 2011. Don't worry, it's pretty recent. ;)

    The "do a barrel roll" meme itself comes from Star Fox (see DD's link above); its recent implementation on Google started today as far as I'm aware. :)

    How does "releasing the latest features of their skins / framework in the form an awesome video and then uploading it on Facebook" sound? :D

    Type 'askew' and hit enter.

    Type 'google gravity' DO NOT HIT ENTER, move your cursor down and click the 'I'm feeling lucky' link on the right hand side.

    This is pretty neat. It wasn't working for me at first, and then I realized it was because I was on Opera. It seems to work on Firefox and Chrome. :D

    And Brogan, those two things are pretty neat as well. =]

    You can click/drag stuff around too. Grab the "Google" and use it to bash stuff around!

    I love that even a monolith like Google can have a little whimsey and allow their engineers to do fun stuff.

    They get to do a lot more fun than just this stuff...in fact more than I have seen at any company. (there is also a bunch more of those hidden special queries that do awesomeness to the search page)

    Check it Inside the Mind of Google
