2 times 2 is four

[ #16043 ]

Way back in The Day, when I was a kid without much to do other than watch Sesame Street, I got to hear Bob Dorough sing about the multiplication tables on SchoolHouse Rock.

Google wants that to be a thing of the past. They do not want you to sing a song when you multiply 2 by 2. What next? Selling books?

If you are the sort of person who flaunts tradition, then maybe you want to use their other culture-shattering features. You don't need to tell me rapacious means because I already looked it up in Google, those rapacious bastards.

Some other cool things:

A year of milliseconds, which is piE10.

Google understands teaspoons but not nanoteaspoons, so I do not think this will ever be more than a novelty for web geeks.

At least we can now figure out the cross-sectional area of the earth, which was really hard before when you had to click on links.
