Google Doodles
« on: May 26, 2015, 09:12:53 PM »
Sometimes I see Google Doodles that are purely American inspired like Thanksgiving and I assume other countries don't see that, and I wonder if people in other countries get to see Google Doodles I don't get to see.



Today's Google Doodle is Sally Ride's 64th Birthday. It has a few different ones and the page has to be reloaded to see them all, so I'm posting the video from the main article instead.

Don't you foreigners have any Google doodles?  >:(

Today's google doodle is Women's World Cup 2015



The Google U.S. homepage is sporting a FIFA Women’s World Cup doodle to mark today’s USA-Australia game. This is the first game of the tournament for the U.S.

The two teams have only played each other once before almost twenty years ago, a game the U.S. won 4 to 1.

“You never take something like this for granted,” says USA mid-fielder Megan Rapinoe

“The Americans begin their challenge against an Australia side that finished runners-up in the AFC Women’s Asian Cup and reached the quarter-finals at the last two women’s world finals,” according to FIFA.com.

Hosted in Winnipeg, Canada, the Women’s World Cup tournament started on Saturday, June 6 and will run through July 5. Today’s USA-Australia game is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. Winnipeg time.

Search for them. I can't be bothered to link to a particular one right now. http://www.google.com/doodles/
I know, I know, it's just that I don't know what should be there. :GA:
Could put some awesome Jack quote in there.

Excuse the crap out of me for trying to start a cool new topic that's relevant to everyone and get people to share stuff without me having to search every day to find out what google looks like in other countries. I guess people can just talk about the weather instead.  >:(

Aaah, poor gopher.

When a doodle shows, I will try and post it here. But have not seen a single doodle since the start of your thread.
I can do upside down chocolate moo things!

I don't get the cool doodles on my Kindle. I get the regular Google letters. Boring!

Most mobile devices are like that. See if there is a setting in your browser that makes servers believe you're on a desktop.

I never see doodles because I don't go to the google homepage.  I use browser toolbars exclusively.  Don't see a point in the extra step of navigating there I guess.
I apologize for speaking out of turn. You are better than me in every possible way. I am indeed the biggest coward around.

Can't stand extra crap in the toolbar area and only have the url bar. Have google set as homepage and new tabs set to open homepage so no navigating really needed.

I can't be bothered to tell you. I can only manage taking the time to find for a link and post it so you can search my weather for yourself. http://www.accuweather.com/en/world-weather   :zoinks:
