    Fun Facts
    1. Google used to have a "Google Updates" mailing list
    2. Google used to have an affiliate program
    3. Google used to have a web directory like DMOZ
    4. Google image search was introduced around 2002
    5. Google Local was introduced around 2005
    6. The I'm Feeling Lucky button has always been there since Google's first year of existence
    7. Google used to be a very simple search engine. Now it's bloated.
    8. Google.com domain expires on 13-09-2028

    The best thing in this world, after me, is Google. Ok, no. Google is one of the best things that this disgusting world have, but obviously it would be nothing without the internet.

    Waiting for Google.com to drop in 2028 so I can pick it up... but yes, thank goodness for the internet. I can't imagine how we would all have been making money if not for Google.
