Update: More on that flake..

If you go to Google.com today, you will notice a new Google doodle celebrating the 125th anniversary of the world’s largest snowflake. Then, you might ask yourself, ‘Where does Google come up with this stuff?”

The doodle is animated. A flock of birds flies away as the giant snowflake falls from the sky, to land as the second “O” in the word Google. A cow looks at it for a second, then goes about her business.

According to Wikipedia, which Google presents as the top organic result when clicking on the doodle, it was this day in 1887 when the largest snowflake was observed at 38 centimeters (15 in) in diameter in Fort Keogh, Montana.

Those visiting Google might also notice a message that says: “We’re changing our privacy policy and terms. Not the usual yada yada. Learn more.”

If you haven’t been following, Google announced some major changes to its privacy policy this past week, which is essentially a consolidation of policies across Google services. What it boils down to is that you should consider using any Google product (other than a few select products) the same as using Google, because they fall into the same terms, and Google will use data across these different services.

    I with everyone else who actually is using this web site as intended. Yes, it may be useless information that we all seem to hold onto but, it is interesting. However, people (immature people) have to ruin it for everyone else. I really don’t understand why the immaturity is even thought to be cool or funny in any way. If you are going to post anything that isn’t involved with the topic of the story, leave the site.

    I am in agreement with the other people who are visiting this site for it’s intended purpose. Yes, this may be in the category of useless information that we all seem to hold onto but, it is interesting. I don’t under stand how people (immature people) find it cool or funny to post inconsiderate, crude, unnecessary, and ridiculous comments. If you are not going to use this site for it’s intended purpose, leave.

  • JosieM

    I once thought words were just words
    An expression only to be misinterpreted by the dull of mind
    Yet years have shown that it is I who was the simpleton
    Not knowing, not caring their true significance

    Just one word can break a person’s will
    A phrase or more much more damage still
    Yet most do not realize what pain can be caused
    From simply speaking before thinking of the reaction without pause

    So guilty am I of this vicious cycle
    Many things I have said with no remorse
    To hurt the ones I hold so close

    I look Above and pray for Grace
    To crush this heart of stone
    To mold the pieces of brokenness and hate into a Chalice to be filled with faith
    One day to be filled to the brim
    Then overflowing with love and peace as was meant to be

    My mom told me not to eat yellow snow. I’ve seen yellow snow before, but never a yellow snowflake. I think it would be in everyone’s best interest to also know the size of the biggest yellow snowflake.
