 Type in "the answer to life the universe and everything" on the Google search bar. Then press "Google Search." The Google calculator pops up and it says it equals 42. I don't really understand it. Maybe you will. Then type in " the answer to life the universe and everything else plus the number of horns on a unicorn" and it solves to 43.

I can't find the Google and Tux logo. Perhaps cause I'm already running Linux?
I go directly to the Google software repositories.

mine looks different that yours
this is from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Series by Douglas Adams. It is determined by a great supercomputer that the meaning to life, the universe and everything is equal to 42... read it or watch the movie it is hillarious
The movie is meh.  Better, much better, get hold of the original TV series on DVD, or the radio series on CD.

The books came after both, and the movie has too much America in it.
Hollywood. Only they can mess up a book that bad. And yes, I'm American.
 It took place in england! and the rest of the universe....
 I agree, the movie made me want to exclaim Belgium! the book(s) were much better
Yeah, I mostly find that the film is utter rubbish compared to the book in most cases.
I wouldn't say the movie has too much America in it... I would instead say they tried too hard to modernize it. As an American, most of the complaints I have (or most everyone I talk to, including you weird foreigners ;) ) really have little or nothing to do with America.

The movie just sucks.

The books are great... te BBC series ever so slightly better, and the original radio shows were of course, the best!
I co,pletly agree with all of you that the movie was utter crap. but the origanal bbc series was marinaly better but i thought it ended WAY to quickly (what was it like 6 episodes) and the radio program was FANTASTIC. the only thing better than the radio show would be if red dwarf had a baby with dr. who
and google rainbow

 now its all purple

The "Devil Google" is Beastie. He's the mascot for BSD.

The "Google Penguin" is Tux. He's the mascot for Linux.

These aren't really hacks, just novelty alternative google sites. By clicking 'I'm feeling lucky' all you are doing is automatically going to the first search result. There are a lot of real hacks out there like using the 'site:' feature or exclusion features.
