Google Knows Absolutely Everything, Except For Its Own Birthday


Remember a time when we had to do homework without Google? I don't want to think about it.

Thankfully, it's 2016 and our Lord and Savior gives us the answers to everything x 100,000. But there's one thing it still can't tell us -- its own birthday.

Your homepage today is taken up by a celebratory Google doodle.

That's because it's Google's 18th birthday! If it were a real person, Google would be legal to have sexual relations with that rascal Ask Jeeves.

However, the exact date of the search engine's big day is unclear. If you Google "Google's birthday," it brings up today's date (September 27).

But in a contradictory bio to the right, it states the firm was founded on September 4, 1998.


A dive into Google's history only raises more questions.

The firm was registered as a domain on September 15, 1997, so isn't it actually 19 years old?

In fact, looking at the company's past, there doesn't seem to be anything of significance relating to September 27.

Its website states,


One year later, however, the firm filed for incorporation. This happened on September 4.

Cool, we're all still majorly confused. But happy birthday or whatever.
