There have been some major changes with Google’s search in recent times in terms of its new brand identity and logo, but the company has also introduced some Easter egg along with all this brand change.
If you simply type “I’m curious” or “curious” in the search engine, Google will produce a piece of interesting random information for your enjoyment. In other words, write this when you are bored and you will get a random fact, with the source of that fact (not always Wikipedia!) Cited below.
Try it now and see what you get …
The first thing we had was the question “what countries use chopsticks?”
Google’s answer: “The chopsticks originated in ancient China and then spread to Vietnam, Korea and Japan, and can also be found in some areas of Tibet and Nepal that are close to the Han Chinese populations. The chopsticks are smoothed and they often narrow, and are commonly made of bamboo, plastic, wood or stainless steel. “
More information nuggets were revealed on topics as diverse as Coca-Cola bottles, the origin and meaning of karaoke, and the answer to the mystery of why barns are painted red.
Enthusiastic observers will notice that when you request a fact, while Google extracts one of your reservations, you see the new colored balls bouncing (dressed in the four colors of Google), which are part of the recent rebranding, to indicate that the system is working to produce its fun fact.
