1. Unlimited free Google searches
Here’s a fun nod to the world of video games. By speaking the Konami code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right) out loud into Google’s voice search option, you’ll unlock the “Google cheat mode” for unlimited free searches.Video: YouTube, rustybrick
2. Blink HTML
Blinking text has long been ridiculed in the HTML world. Google is in on the joke, and hid a little Easter egg for like-minded web nerds. Type in “blink HTML” into Google, and the resulting page will feature blinking text.Image: Rapid Purple
3. Marquee HTML
Much like blink HTML, the marquee feature on HTML is a loathed web effect. Type “marquee HTML” into Google, and the search results will turn into a scroll at the top of the page.Image: Search Engine Roundtable
4. “I’m feeling…hungry?”
Hovering over the “I’m feeling lucky” bar will roll around a few other options you might not have known about. Place your mouse cursor over the button and you’ll see new choices such as “I'm feeling stellar” (which takes you to pictures of the galaxy), “I’m feeling hungry” (which takes you to restaurants), “I'm feeling generous,” “I’m feeling artistic” and more.Image: Google
5. What’s your Bacon number?
We’re all connected to Kevin Bacon. Well, famous people are anyway. Typing in “Bacon number” followed by the name of a famous actor or actress will show you just how many degrees apart that person is from the Footloose actor.Image: Google
6. Google in 1998
To celebrate its 15th birthday in 2013, the search engine decided to give users a flashback. Typing in “Google in 1998” turns the site back to the way it looked more than a decade ago.Image: Google
7. German beatbox
Google Translate likes to get in on the fun, too. Type in the following nonsensical paragraph into the translate box, select German, hit “translate” and then click the audio button to hear Google translate start beatboxing .
Here’s what to copy and paste:

8. Atari Breakout
Once you’re in Google Images, search the term “Atari Breakout.” A game similar to the original Breakout will materialize, in honor of Atari’s 37th birthday .Image: Google
