Google Grasps

Google seems to really be grasping at straws lately with their banner notables. The other day it was the birthday of the guy who invented the bunsen burner. Today it's the 119th anniversary of the first documented ice cream sundae. Seriously? Not even the 125th? What's next? The 3rd birthday of Rowan Wilson, who may or may not grow up to invent a remote control lawn mower? The 99th anniversary of the day 'burnt sienna' was deemed a Crayola colour? The 47th birthday of the Old Spice Guy?

    Not cool to belittle the celebration of Robert Bunsun's work!! He made multiple important contributions beyond developing the Bunsun Burner. I'm disappointed in you Winnie Cooper :-(

  2. I am disappointed in you too, secret Bill Nye, for you spelled Robert Bunsen's name wrong.
