Default Google's "Really Advanced Search"

I just came across a Google feature I'd never noticed before, "Really Advanced Search." When I clicked on it to see what it was and read through the options, one particular item jumped out at me (circled in red).

Not sure this is an entirely serious feature , but the real question is: Is there a Mersenner over at Google HQ?

... hmm.


Wait, ahh, they must be using UTC.

Also, reload the page; more and more appears the more you load it.

I like the second part of the page best (what appears after a first refresh)

Funny, my page doesn't change after I hit Refresh -- I get all the same choices, starting from "all these words" all the way down to the music and the ranking code download. Maybe if I used Chrome...

A pretty clever page, though.

The funniest part is that some of the commenters actually "bought" the idea!

Thumbs up

TigerDirect (a.k.a. CompUSA and CircuitCity) also came through with a significant direct-to-consumer technological advance.
