Hidden Google/Gmail Features

These are some of the hidden features Google has coded into their web browser.

Firstly,  there is the No wifi game. This is a cool Chrome easter egg. When you can’t connect to the internet, you see a screen with a dinosaur.

Hit space or tap the screen. When you see the cacti, hit space or tap to jump over it. Eventually you find pterodactyl.

Some of them you can jump over. Some of them you can’t. Once you reach 700, the colors of the screen reverse.

Do a barrel roll. This makes the screen rotate.

Search askew, and, you will see the page at a slight tilt.

Once in a blue moon seems to be 1.16699016 × 10-8 hertz.

When you search anagram, it says did you mean nag a ram?

In Google Hangouts, there are a bunch of easter eggs. One of them is /bikeshed.

It changes the color of the screen. /ponystream makes ponies run across the chat screen.

/pitchforks makes a group of men with pitchforks and other tools run across the screen.

Go to Google Images and search Atari Breakout. It leads you to that game.

Just go to normal Google search and type “play snake”. All you have to do is click where it says.

Those are all the ones I currently know about. Google will almost certainly be making more.

Slither.io Tips

2017-05-08The objective is to grow big and kill other snakes. The way you do that is by making their head touch your body. This is a mass multiplayer game. You are always moving and you point your mouse the way you want to move. You can run by holding down on the mousepad. This is your appearance running and not running:

When you run, you lose length twice as fast as when you’re not running. Otherwise, snakes would always be running. If you look in the bottom right, you will see a circle. That circle is the map. The gray specs are snakes. I go areas where snakes are more common. When they die, they dissolve into dots. This is what the dots look like:

The biggest dots are the ones that are part of a snake.

If someone tries to run in front of you, it’s best to run away.

Using the map, I go to the middle. It is the most dangerous but if you survive you can get big. This is what is looks like in the middle:

A description of the middle: Lots of snakes and lots of dead snakes. Either you get really big, or you die.

That is what I usually do. There are two other things people do. Go around the edge of the map and get really big, then go to the middle, or find a big snake in the edge and follow it until it dies.

In 30 seconds in the middle, I grew to about 500. In the back I grew to about 115 in 30 seconds.

Another good way to get big is to find a big snake and follow him until he dies. This is what it looks like:



When he dies you get to eat this:




This is what it looks like following a big snake. I would recommend following a bigger one though.



One time, my sister was getting attacked by the first place snake and she killed him. That got her on the leaderboard.


Here are some action shots:

I killed it.

I was the one getting circled because my name was Circle Me, No Joke

That was so awesome. Three or four dead snakes. Maybe more.
