5
Thanks to Google Instant, you can't actually use the 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button anymore. 'Google Instant' starts searching for whatever you type as soon as you type it, thereby leaving no time or possibility to click that button. The 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button apparently cost the company $110 million every year, because it would bypass all ads to go to the top search immediately.
6
Since 2010, Google has been acquiring an average of one company every week. Android, Youtube, Waze, you name it, Google owns it.

The first ever Google Doodle was a Burning Man stick figure that came out on August 30, 1998. It came about when Larry and Sergey visited the Burning Man Festival in Nevada. It was added to the homepage to let users know they were out of office and couldn't fix technical issues like a server crash.

14
Google helps pronounce massive numbers if you type '=english' after searching for a number
