Kindergarten Google – A to Z and 1 to 10

April 23, 2008

Have you ever taken the time to see exactly what the A to Z search on Google comes back with? We start by simply typing in a single letter on Google and seeing what the first return is. For the most part, we find a notable pattern, but with a few bizarre oddities:

  • Sometimes, an article on Wikipedia is referenced “ie, an article on the letter ‘b’ “
  • There are a few stock symbols
  • Many mathematical constants

Funny items

  • The letter “S” brought up Queen’s University… huh?
  • The letter R brought up a project that’s commonly referred to as the “S” project 😉
  • There’s a little bit of toilet humour under “P”

I thought of this article a while back, but seems like a good waste of time to me! Let’s begin!
