Google has given a chance to its users to look around the garage where it took birth. On the occasion of 20th birthday of the company, the search giant posted a Google Street View Tour of the Menlo Park, California garage where it all began in 1998. The company has recreated the space and has added every single detail to it. It has also included a secret room filled with classic Google memorabilia. The YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki owned the garage which served as Google’s first headquarters. It was the place where the foundations of Google were laid by the co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page. The firm wrote in a blog post, “To celebrate Google’s 20th birthday, today we invite you to travel back in time and take a virtual stroll through the original Google Garage in Street View – (almost) like it was 20 years ago.”

The Royal Navy Submarine Museum is having a special treat this weekend. In addition to their collection of submarines (one goes back to 1901), there are some great activities.
If you know any Limeys, or perhaps visiting the UK, you should check out the attractions.

This is such a great story. Chicago Cubs fan Stefan Xidas, who has Down syndrome, raised nearly $40,000 for the Special Olympics in Illinois. So the team granted his wish and let him come and sing the national anthem at Monday night’s game. And he was amazing!

So I just got back from a little vacation that briefly put me in the Great White North for the first time, and I took the opportunity to visit the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory in Victoria BC where the visitor's center has dubbed itself the Centre of the Universe. It's a nifty little observatory of significant historical and scientific interest that is sadly now in a state of disrepair, woefully underfunded by the Canadian government and looking to restore itself to the point where it can at least contribute to the astrological community again and open itself back up to schools and the general public.

The Constitution of the United States is only 4543 words—7762 if you count the Amendments—and originally fit on just four large sheets of paper. But it packs a wallop. Not only is it the oldest written national constitution in the world, it's arguably the most influential in the world, too.

Some days you might find yourself in and out of the toilet, and some days might go by without a single visit for a Number Two. Should this be a cause for concern? We asked five experts if we have to poop every day. Five out of five experts said no.
An instantly recognizable theme song, outrageous death traps, ingenious gadgets, an army of dastardly villains and femme fatales, and a pop-culture phenomenon unmatched for generations. James Bond, right? Wrong. 1966’s Batman television series practically defined the comic book adaptation for the next three decades with its distinctive visual flair and parade of celebrity guests, even as it walked the line between loving adaptation and straight-up parody.

Ah, the first day of college. You obtain a cheery map and find your way to your dorm room. You are either the first or the second one there. Your parents are with you, or they are not. You have probably already corresponded with your roommate online, or at least stalked them, because it is 2018, and you need to know what you're getting into - but now, at last, you are face to furiously washed face. They say hello. They hang a poster. You recognize it as either Klimt or Trainspotting or that one of two girls kissing. They open a box. They take out a well-loved book, its spine creased, its edges worn. You read the title. You gasp, because all of a sudden you know exactly what the year will bring. Or at least you will after consulting the handy list below.

Granted, this is an opinion piece, but Steven Parton brings up an excellent point: Why are lawyers persuading judges about ethical issues surrounding technology instead of the people who actually understand the underlying beast?
