Rorschach is of course the psychiatrist known for creating the Rorschach inkblot test. To celebrate, Google has some inkblots of their own, and you can share them with the world.

  11. Lovely Google Doodle in Honor of Claude Debussy, Kind Youtuber Made a Video

    “Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art.”

    Whatever faults Google may have, winning the heart of the internet via distractions is not one of them, with easter eggs for gay pride, the first snowfall-- and today's home page is a gorgeous animation set to Claude Debussy's "Claire de Lune" in honor of what would be his 151st birthday.

  12. Google Observes, and Thus Alters Erwin Schrödinger’s 126th Birthday with Google Doodle

    The rest of this article is simultaneously dead and not dead until you click through the jump.

    Erwin Schrödinger may not be as famous as his cat, but he's kind of a big deal to science geeks and anyone who's tried to understand quantum mechanics. Today is Schrödinger's 126th birthday -- or maybe it simultaneously is and isn't his 126th birthday -- so Google commemorated the occasion with this lovely Doodle.

  13. Happy 93rd Birthday, Rosalind Franklin! Google Got You a Doodle!

    Well, it's not a Nobel, but it's the best we can do for right now.

    You can be forgiven if you're not familiar with today's Google Doodle of Rosalind Franklin. Though she did much of the important X-ray crystallography work that set the stage for James Watson and Francis Crick's discover of the double-helix structure of DNA, Franklin still goes largely unacknowledged in many modern science texts. Today would have been Rosalind Franklin's 93rd birthday, and Google is celebrating her tragically brief life and career with it's highest honor -- a Doodle.

  14. The Anatomy of a Google Doodle About Saul Bass: We Look at All the Films Google Pulled From

    This might just be for the film geeks out there, but today would have been Saul Bass' 93rd birthday. To celebrate, Google made this video Doodle of their logo in the style of some of Bass' most iconic work. I've decided to celebrate that celebration by posting clips of the work Google is celebrating. Who's Saul Bass? Here, I'll show you.

  15. Happy Birthday, Carl Sagan! We Are Sorry You (Inexplicably) Didn’t Get A Google Doodle

    Today is Carl Sagan's birthday, which, if there were any justice in the world, would be celebrated in the fashion we've become accustomed to for nerds of note -- with a Google Doodle commemorating the day that one of the world's best and brightest science celebrities was expelled from the womb. As there is clearly no justice in the world, though, Sagan's birthday was overlooked by Google's legions of doodlers, who were no doubt exhausted by celebrating Bram Stoker's big 165 yesterday. I don't think we need to tell you why this is clearly unacceptable.

  16. Google’s Olympics Doodle Might Remind You of a Very Frustrating Game, but There’s a Reason for That

    Today marks the beginning of the 2012 London Olympics, and naturally the Internet giant Google honored the event with its very own Google Doodle, as is par for the course for just about any day that is slightly noteworthy. The Doodle is cute, using cartoon characters to represent the usual colors of the Google letters, while they're holding most of the letters outright instead of contorting their bodies to mimic the shape of them. However, depending on how embedded you are in Internet or obscure video game culture, you may feel like there's an Easter egg in the Doodle.

  19. Today’s Valentine’s Day Google Doodle Shows That Google Doesn’t Have the Answer for Everything [Video]

    There's a lot of charm in today's animated Google Doodle for Valentine's Day. First and foremost it looks great, but there's some more subtle things to like about it. For one thing, it's the first time I've seen Google suggest that there are things you can't do with Google -- search as he might, the protagonist of the video cannot find the gift to win the heart of his lady love. Secondly, the whole thrust of the video is that there is no way to "win" someone's heart at all, and that the best connections are made when people act like themselves and share interests. Lastly, the ending montage of happy couples has a gay wedding. Way to go, Google; you really made me feel the love.

    The ephemeral redesigns of Google's iconic logo have been amusing the Internet since their introduction in 1998. Though these so-called Google Doodles only last a day, they've become increasingly complex over the last few years, with the addition of animated and interactive elements. Now, those spectacular doodles will be preserved on Google's redesigned doodle archive, and you can even buy the doodles from Google's new Zazzle store.
