Google


What's a Google???????

Back in the mid 1960's a mathematician was playing with his little son, teaching him math (what else?). He asked his son "What is a 1 followed by one zero?" to which his son replied "TEN!",  1 followed by two zeroes "HUNDRED", 3 zeroes "THOUSAND!". Then just to tease his little boy he asked "What is a 1 followed by one hundred zeroes?".  After a very long silence, his son finally blurted out

"Go,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,

ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo,

ooo,oooGLE"

Today as grownups, we're still mystified by this thing called "Google, now a proper noun but still seemingly unknowable.
