to work for Google? Here's the aptitude test...
12 years ago
Well, I know the answer to question 3...
2. you must understand middle-american brain then predict the past
stuff like this makes me feel even MORE stupid because in addition to not knowing the answers, i can't even tell if this thing is real or not. *technotard*
My husband suggests that the way to find the answer to these questions is to google them. He came up with this idea after I posed the multiple choice team size question to him--he's a developer/release engineering manager--and he said "it depends on the project" (and the people involved, etc.)
, you're confusing ignorance with stupidity. Retard. Sheesh.
Sidedish -- those are the same thoughts that went through my head. Dammit, gotta go flip some more burgers.
I'll have fries with mine.
And a Laaaaaarrrrrrge Orrrrrrraaaanggge Drink!
chicken nuggets? what flavor sauce?
What question listed determines capacity for plodding good work? These philosphy gauges, these Fibonacci inspired riddles which determines the lack of a larcenous heart? The longing to lead? What of Unix is broken? This I may not know, but it can be learned. But can the service of a seasoned Samurai, who knows of patience, and preparation, be rendered onto card with number two pencil?
I've been messing around with Google afain.
Googling -- peace -- yields 28,800,000 results Googling -- war --> yields 98,200,000 results Googling -- god --> 57,500,000 results Googling -- girl --> 96,810,000 results Googling -- poem --> 16,800,000 results Googling -- song --> 39,500,000 results Googling -- story --> 147,000,000 ressults Googling -- art --> 194,000,000 results Googling --> photo --> 202,000,000 results Googling --> x --> 349,000,000 results Googling --> you --> 1,010,000,000 Googling -- i(I) --> 1,370,000,000 Googling -- of -->3,920,000,000 Couldn't come up with any single item/word query that scores a greater number of results than that. Is this the maximum number of results possible?
--- the --> 5 720 000 000
Well, I'll be damned. For years it's been telling me it doesn't do the and a. And now this. O base and treacherous Google! Thanks,
, now I can go D'oh for the day.

Somethin' ain't right with that 'the' result.
I got a hard copy of this in the magazine/alumni publication of my alma mater.... This goes along with the
they have up in silicon valley and Cambridge, MA.

Weird, my "the" returned 5,840,000,000, 120,000,000 more than Wolof.

you can't possibly be serious...you mean to tell me that even the messengers have to take this test?
I don't think they have messengers, they just grok, or something.
Now Google returns only 5,800,000,000 for "the" -- it is not a fixed number! Not fixed...uh, Google is broken? Helphelphelp! The-sky-is-fallling! /flaps wings wildly
