We have updated this message to include the new Easter eggs that Google placed as part of its 20th anniversary celebration .
Google is well known for its lighter side including fanciful logos April Fools' jokes and more. Here is a great list of Easter eggs that Google engineers have hidden for enterprising researchers who take the time to hunt them down.
Easter eggs? "A virtual Easter egg is a message, joke or intentional joke hidden in a work such as a computer program, a web page, a video game, a movie, a book or crosswords", according to Wikipedia .

Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between a classic "Easter egg", something that's hidden in the works you have to look for to reveal it, and special features that Google activates to celebrate a particular occasion or Milestone. Many people describe them as Easter eggs, although they are usually transient and impossible to find once Google has disabled them.
Some of these "transient" Easter eggs were lit to coincide with the holidays, such as looking for a phrase with "Christmas" or "Christmas" that triggered a series of colored lights under the bar of research. Likewise, around the same time, the search for "hanukkah" included a row of star-shaped lights of David and that of "kwanzaa," a row of Kinara candles.
Even though they are fun, I do not consider them as "real" Easter eggs. The purpose of this post is to focus on "permanent" eggs that you can search and find at any time. Most of Google's Easter eggs are smart and fun. Some require specialized knowledge, as you will see in many examples below.

recursion … is the process of repetition of objects to the same way. The most common application of recursion is in mathematics and computer science, in which it refers to a method of defining functions in which the function being defined is applied in its own definition. In a logical step, Google asks, "Do you mean: recursion? "
The guide to the hitchhiker of the galaxy Douglas Adams wrote "the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is 42." For years, people have been trying to decipher the meaning "hidden "behind the number 42, but Adams himself, late in his life, said:" The answer It's very simple, it was a joke, it was a number, a small and ordinary number, and I I chose that one. Binary representations, base 13, Tibetan monks are utterly nonsense. in the garden and thought 42 would do the business. I typed it. End of the story. "Nonsense or not, the Google calculator returns the number 42 in response to this query.

A barrel is an airplane maneuver where the pilot performs a full 360 degree roll while continuing to fly at a constant altitude, as if the aircraft landing gear was circling around. from inside the barrel. Google has taken a bit of poetic license with this definition, by "turning" the result page through a 360-degree loop. Click on the link above to see it in action by yourself.

If you're a true math lover, you can create complex equations that Google will calculate, and then graphically represent a recognizable form, such as the Easter egg above. Here is one, represented graphically from the following equation:
sqrt (cos (x)) * cos (300x) + sqrt (abs (x)) – 0.7) * (4-x * x) ^ 0.01, sqrt (6-x ^ 2), -sqrt (6 -x ^ 2) from -4.5 to 4.5
