Where Were You When Google Was Born 13 Years Ago Today?

Anyone notice the party that is going on at Google's website today? In case you forgot, September 27th is the date Google chose for their birthday.

It's an arbitrary date selected in 2005 to celebrate Google's September milestones. Google first registered Google.com on September 15, 1997 and the company was incorporated on September 7, 1998. Instead of either one of those two dates, Google selected the 27th because they're Google and they can.

It's hard to believe the search engine is now officially entering the troubled teens.

@Sub-Radar-Mike. I was 40. Aw, crap.
13 years ago today? I was stationed at the Willow Grove Naval Air Station in Horsham, Pennsylvania.
No, I don't know why it wasn't called the Horsham Naval Air Station. Maybe because 'Horsham' is only one word.
And the sign at the front gate had room for two words.

I was five when Google was founded... It's a weird thing to think of, these guys sure started early.

I was 13, probably wishing I had a search engine to help me find porn. It was fate I tell you.
