...Just like like when you google "empire state building" on [duckduckgo.com...]
Hah. And I thought DuckDuckGo was supposed to be Not Evil™. How could anyone suggest DDG as an alternative to Google when DDG is clearly also subduing the hard work of numerous webmasters without any regard for their livelihood. Oh, the humanity...
Gratuitous sarcasm aside, I had a specific Google query (not the question I typed out previously) in mind that returns, at the top of the page:
Best guess for Empire State Building Height is 381 m
Mentioned on at least 4 websites including wikipedia.org, about.com and pbs.org - Show sources - Feedback
The only problem I have with that is that the value is in meters when Google knows I'm in the United States.
But I think this is getting a bit off-topic, so I'll stop here.
