Google Doodles for 22 Feb

OK, as promised two posts ago, I would start looking at Google Doodles and commenting on them. I have decided I will add some commentary on historical events to my discussions here in addition to the Google Doodles.

I have always been a history buff, and I think we can all learn something from history. A well rounded education consists of little bits and pieces of history that round out our knowledge, and by extension, our personality. A well rounded personality makes us a better person, and also makes us less gullible, and turns on your BS meter, and finally also should cause you to be more curious about the world around you.

Here we go:

2012 – Google Doodle – Celebrating Heinrich Hertz‘s 155th birthday.

2011 – History – An earthquake measuring 6.3 in magnitude strikes Christchurch, New Zealand, killing 181 people

2010 – Google Doodle – A rather plain but descriptive doodle portraying the figure skating of the Vancouver Olympics.
