Google’s Unexplained Phenomenonby Cherlyn Gardner Strong on Sep. 05, 2009, under UFO News, UFOs
Our friends at Google, Inc. are up to something, but they aren’t saying what.
The Google logo (aka, Google Doodle) changed yesterday, without any explanation. We’ve seen the “Google Doodle” reflect holidays and honor notable events in history over the years. Yet, as of yesterday, the logo simply depicts a UFO beaming up the second “o” in Google.
The logo in itself is an “unexplained phenomenon”, and clicking on the logo returns results related to “unexplained phenomenon.” So, I am left scratching my head. Does the logo represent the fact that “unexplained phenomenon” is a popular search term? Is Google driving traffic to that specific search term for a yet to be explained motive? Have the folks at Google been abducted by aliens?
While trying to decipher what Google is doing, I found that the first Google Doodle, posted in May 2000, utilized a UFO theme. The weeklong series of revisions to the Google logo incorporated spaceships and aliens, and were dubbed “alien intrigue.” This current Doodle doesn’t seem to coincide with the anniversary of the first Doodle. The truth is out there, but I can’t seem to find it yet.
Update: “Shortly before midnight Eastern Time last night, Google posted the numeric phrase “1.12.12 184.108.40.206 15 1.18.5 220.127.116.11.14.7 20.15 21.19 via their Twitter account. Substituting letters for numbers, this translates to “All your O are belong to us.” This phrase has been linked to: “All your base are belong to us,” a badly translated phrase from a Japanese video game that spread across internet in 2002.
UPDATE 2!: Bjay found some interesting information on Wikipedia:
“Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were students at Stanford University and the company was first incorporated as a privately held company on September 4, 1998.” Looks like the mystery may have been solved, right here in Tucson!
