google barrel roll Do a barrel roll: Google does more tricks than your dogDon’t adjust your monitor. The image you see above is an accurate screen grab. It depicts what happens if you type the words “do a barrel roll” into the Google search bar.

Go ahead — try it. We’ll wait.

Okay, the most exciting few seconds of your day, right? For those of you too timid to give it a try, what happens is this: when the words are typed in, Google reads them as a command and the entire contents of one’s browser screen executes a perfect loop-the-loop. Mind. Blowing.

Thanks to Ology, though, we’ve got a few other Google tricks that will burn up at least an additional 39 seconds of your workday:

>> Tilt: As advertised, it tilts the results page a bit to the right AND provides the asked-for search returns. So, you just know some pinball fanatic got a nasty surprise one day.

>> Google gravity: Oh if only the laws of physics applied to the cyber-world.

>> Dragon Slayer: In Google spreadsheets, press Shift+F12 an the message pops up announcing, “Dragon slain! Congratulations, you’ve slain the dragon!” This will win you instant cool points, so make sure to perform the trick for as many co-workers as possible.
