    You can also do it with roman numerals eg. V+V, And in the thin blue bar where it say "Searched English pages for" if you click on the underlined white links it sends you to dictionary.com for its meaning Anyone know any other funny ones?

    I was reading USA Today yesterday and saw an article about this very thing actually, and kind of chuckled. it said you can ask google things like .. "what is the speed of light" and it SHOULD answer. *shrugs* I guess it is a test of the same software they have been letting the U.S. Army play with. nifty.

    Try typing in things like the following

    Index of /etc
    Index of /usr
    Index of /home
    Index of /

    Just goes to show you that people can make silly mistakes when they put a webserver up.
