Google's latest Easter egg is a fun (and educational) time killer

  1. Are you bored at work and looking to burn some clock until it’s time to go home? Or perhaps you’re gathering some general knowledge trivia questions for game night? Whatever the occasion, Google's latest Easter egg is prepared to help.

    Simply querying the phrase “fun facts” or “I’m feeling curious” will return a random piece of trivia. Examples I received include information regarding which U.S. presidents lived in a log cabin, why you hear the sound of the ocean in a seashell and clarifying if balsa is a hardwood or softwood (it’s the latter, in case you were wondering).

    Preceding each fact is a large blue button that generates another random bit of information.

    Should you grow tired of soaking in new information, there are plenty of other Google Easter eggs to check out. I mean, who doesn't want to do a barrel roll or play Breakout?

    Found is a TechSpot feature where we share clever, funny or otherwise interesting stuff from around the web.

    Thanks for the heads up, I like these kinds of things.
