Και μετα λενε οτι το ωτορινολαρυγγολογος ειναι δυσκολη λεξη..
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne,In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Did you know what googol is?
A googol is the large number 10^100; that is, the digit 1 followed by 100 zeroes:
10,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000.

The term was coined in 1938 by 9-year-old Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner. Kasner popularized the concept in his 1940 book Mathematics and the Imagination.

Other names for googol include ten duotrigintillion on the short scale, ten thousand sexdecillion on the long scale, or ten sexdecilliard on the Peletier long scale.

Did you know how the name Google was made up?
Page and Brin originally nicknamed their new search engine "BackRub", because the system checked backlinks to estimate the importance of a site. Eventually, they changed the name to Google, originating from a misspelling of the word "googol", the number one followed by one hundred zeros, which was picked to signify that the search engine was intended to provide large quantities of information.

Wait I thought Google is a paraphrase of the word Goggle. You know because they always meant to spy on us and all...

Haha I'm joking it's obviously coming from the sound toads produce during the night near lake Michigan, where Page's parents own a lakehouse.
When Page was a kid all he heard during the night was that annoying sound: "Google Google! Google Google!"

To ήξερα, τι κερδίζω; :P
Για την ακρίβεια το είχα ακούσει σε μία από τις online διαλέξεις που έχει ανεβάσει το Stanford. Στην αρχή χρησιμοποιούσαν τους servers του Πανεπιστημίου κι όταν πήγαν να δηλώσουν το domain ένας από τους δύο ιδρυτές έκανε λάθος το spelling. Kάτι τέτοιο θυμάμαι...
