This post is completely safe for work.
Today is the birthday of Gideon Sundback. Before you go “who?”, “why should I care?”, know this: he made pants possible. Sundback is the inventor of the modern day zipper and believe it or not, there is actually a good amount of science involved into making this simple little thing.
Google, who are known to celebrate such world-changing contributions, has today turned their search engine into a giant, HTML-loaded zipper. Unzip the fancy zipper and it will automatically feed information about Sundback and his works. It’s quite awesome.
Just go to www.google.com and zip away!
