I had the strangest dream a couple nights ago, and have been debating whether or not to post this, but here goes:

I stumbled across a search term that worked like an Easter Egg: you get a surprise. (Don't remember the term, otherwise I would have tried it out!)

The surprise: Google's code, all 6 million lines of it. Code for the spider, code for the ranking/dance, code for everything.

A buddy of mine collects old computer stuff from state and university auctions (reality). He had a stack of 18" wide greenbar paper and a daisywheel printer for said paper (dream only). The code was written to be 160 characters wide, so it was perfect for the wide paper. (I hate word-wrap.)

I burned GoogleAlgo.txt to a CD and went to his house. We printed it out and laid it all out in the yard.

My friend just started laughing. He pointed out that each page of code was ASCII art of a pigeon. The first page was a pigeon standing. Next was a pigeon flying, nesting, eating, etc. The last was a pigeon flipping us off with both wings.

How can functioning code also be ascii art at the same time? Very X-Files like.

That's when I woke up.

Cool dream. I usually just wake up from dreaming that I am already awake and doing SEO work, or reading WW.
