The “I’m feeling curious” trick first came into play in 2015. Unlike most other tricks, Google actually announced the launch of the process. The announcement signifies the importance of the feature quite a lot since most other tricks do not get the same hospitality.
More specifically, it was launched in September of 2015, and that means that this has been around for almost five years! Also, based on the fact that the feature is fun and educational, we can safely assume that Google will not remove the feature anytime soon.
- It is Extremely Informative –
This is where the “I’m feeling curious” excels at; the feature is very informative, and you can pass your day away with unlimited and fun facts about anything and everything on the internet. For example, when you google “I’m Feeling Curious,” it will return many different questions that people generally have but never know the answer. One search result might return the question – Is sign language the same in other countries? Now, this is a valid question that you might not know. Also, this question must come to mind for any student who is looking to study sign language.
This is just one example out of many that you get when using this interesting Google feature. One other might be – How many miles per hour does the Earth go around the Sun?
The time you spend on this neat little trick is completely dependent on what type of person you are. Some people can spend an entire day just gobbling up the unlimited amount of information presented by Google. Other people just spend around five minutes before feeling bored yet again.
YouTube has lots of videos where people have stated that these little bits’ information is sometimes quite handy at school and even in their career. How knows, one day you will walk into a job viva, and you may just get a question that you already know from Google!
- It Paves the Way to Other Google Tricks –
As stated before, the “I’m feeling curious” trick is not the only feature Google has up its sleeves. In fact, this feature will unlock the way to many other tricks that Google has. One perfect example is “Get local time anywhere.” This feature will allow you to instantly see the local time of any city in the world. The local time trick is neat if you want to synchronize times with your family and friends outside. Gamers will especially feel this a mandatory feature since there are always friends outside of the country, or even on the opposite of the globe.
This is just one of the hundreds of tricks that Google has for you to take advantage of. If you take time learning even some of these features, you will definitely feel the effect that technology and Google has in your life, and in the right way.
Some Interesting “I’m Feeling Curious” finds for you!
In the old days, when the feature was first released, Google randomly presented you with an interesting question that you would love to know the answer of. When you put the statement in the query box, the random question would appear. Then, if you wanted to look for a new question to find the answer to, all you had to do was press the “Ask Another Question” button, and another random question would appear. Even now, you will rarely find a question that you know the answer of. All one can say is that is how smart Google is.
Also, during the times when “I’m feeling curious” was really popular, other tricks started to come up. Some of the most interesting ones that just relieves you of boredom are –
- Fun Fact.
- I’m feeling stellar.
- I’m feeling trendy.
- I’m feeling wonderful.
- I’m feeling playful.
- I’m feeling puzzled.
- I’m feeling doodley.
- I’m feeling generous.
- I’m feeling artistic.
And of course,
- I’m feeling curious.
All of these queries will give you results according to the feeling you Google. For example, “I’m feeling trendy” would give you the latest trends that are currently out there. They may range from fashion to the latest gadgets. The “I’m feeling generous” query would give you access to different charities that you can donate to. The “Fun fact” query produces results that are very similar to “I’m feeling curious”; however, those are much more interesting and sometimes quite funny.
Apart from the similar queries, here are some of the most interesting “I’m feeling curious” questions you can know the answer to –
- How many miles per hour does the EarthEarth rotate around the Sun?
Now, this is an interesting question that almost all of us have in mind, but for some reason, almost none of us ever find the answer.
The surface of the EarthEarth at the equator travels approximately 24,898 miles per hour that roughly equivalents to 11,130 meters per second. However, the earth orbits at approximately 67,000 miles per hour around the Sun.
- What did Bruce Lee Study?
Almost all of us know of Bruce Lee. He is probably the most famous action star of all time. However, almost none except the most dedicated fans truly knows of his background and what he studied.
Bruce is a student of Ip Man, who is the most famous Wing Chun Master of all time. The martial arts master himself has more movies of his life than you can count. However, most of them are fictional. Bruce Lee first started under Ip Man when he was just 16 years old. This happened just after he lost a fight with rival gang members at school.
- Can a goalkeeper score by throwing the ball?
This is an interesting question that most football fans have, and yes, a goalkeeper can score that way. There is no specific rule out there that can negate this particular action. The rule book clearly says that the play starts when the goalkeeper releases the ball, no matter the way.
- What causes red hair?
This question is most famous in Ireland and the United States. Red hair is incredibly rare, and only about 1 to 2 percent of the Earth’sEarth’s population has red hair. This means that out of almost 7.5 billion people on EarthEarth, only 150 million have red hair!
Research shows that red hair mostly comes from a mutation of genes called MC1R. This means that you just might not have red hair if both your parents have so!
There are people out there that say that technology makes you lazy and is a huge waste of time. However, this is clearly just a misconception, mostly from the older generation. This misconception is clear when you go to countries in South-Eastern Asia. While the statement is true to some extent, it is not always so. The e-commerce sites, Facebook, Google all bring the entire world in the palm of your hands. This amount of information and access would very obviously make you lazy to some extent.
Therefore, it is quite nice to see that Google has taken so many steps in the right direction. Even in boredom, you get to see search results that are clearly fun to know; however, they are definitely not a waste of time. There is no better way to learn all of these tricks to find out for yourself. Just search for Google Easter Eggs and other tricks from YouTube, other articles, and even this one, and you will definitely find something to do the entire day!
