    IQ of google users?
    I came across this today, and I had to laugh.
    I was using google to find info on a well known web host (the name of which is pretty obvious in the context of the search)
    So I google "1 and 1" (without quotes). The result is quite amusing.

    That's sort of handy. You can use '-', '+', '/' and '*' to do the 4 different basic math functions. You can even mix and combine them.

    You can actually do quite a bit more than that with Google's built in calculator.

    For instance:

    "135 degrees f in c" -> "135 degrees Fahrenheit = 57.2222222 degrees Celsius"
    "teaspoons in a gallon" -> "1 US gallon = 768 US teaspoons"
    "c in km/s" -> "the speed of light = 299 792.458 kilometers / second"
    "sqrt(3^2+4^2)" -> "sqrt((3^2) + (4^2)) = 5"
    "cos(pi/4)^2" -> "cos(pi / 4) = 0.5"
    "10821 * 11409" -> "10 821 * 11 409 = 123 456 789"

    Actually, 1 and 1 is a well known webhost, I've seen them advertise in several magazines. I hope this what the user was searching for!!!

    1 and 1 can eventually equal 3, depending on what they're doing.

    Yes, I use this feature all the time. It's great that G has thought of those quick conversions and calc.

    Note to Mike* Mike, this is the stuff I was talking about in your b-day thread!

    Before trying to insult the intellgence of Google users, you should try this search
    1 & 1 on Google which is the actual name of the of the company in that example.

    Also interesting is "one and one" => "one plus one = two"

    It knows how to spell some pretty big numbers.

    For instance: "fifteen factorial" => "fifteen factorial = one trillion three hundred seven billion six hundred seventy-four million three hundred sixty-eight thousand"

    Geez - lighten up! It was only meant as a bit of fun. I am well aware of the correct spelling of the company, but if someone told you to search for "1 & 1" without it being written down, what percentage would use the word "and"

    Google Earth? How about Google Mars or Google Moon? They're always coming up with something new.
