There Has NEVER EVER Been A Google Doodle For Abraham Lincoln!

by Anura Guruge

I did a thorough search, yet again, of Google’s Doodle Archive to make sure. Nothing!

Yes, I know that Google has some policy about avoiding politics and (U.S.) political figures.

But, there have been Google Doodle’s for Martin Luther King DAY (and the key here is that the Doodle is ostensibly to mark the ‘Day’ as opposed to MLK per se), Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi.

Way I see it is IF you can have a Google Doodle for Mandela YOU can have one for Lincoln. They were BOTH presidents — so as such were on the same rung politically to speak of. Only difference is that Nelson wasn’t American. Seems wrong.

I can’t see anybody (even from the Confederate States) objecting to a Google Doodle for Abe.

Periodic Table Game: How Many “In My Element” Can YOU Make, Other Than Beer & Wine.

by Anura Guruge


Yesterday was the 182nd birth anniversary of Dmitri Mendeleev, the creator of the Periodic Table — and Google commemorated it, albeit just in a few countries, with quite a nice Google Doodle.

And then there is this VERY CLEVER “Periodically I am in my Element” T-shirt — the ‘element’ in this case Be (4) + ER (68).

Got me thinking, what OTHER ‘elements’ that we would LIKE to be in can we create using the symbols? I even provide you with a Periodic Table right here.

Yes, if I use 3 symbols I can make MY element: W (74) + I (53) + Ne (10) = WINE. Yes, that makes me HAPPY (in every sense).

I guess because of its connotation as the unknown value there is NO ‘X‘, though there is indeed an Xe (54). So that makes it hard to make my most favorite element though I can get a head start with Se (34).

Go ahead. See what YOU can make it. Enjoy.
