Google Calculator Can Handle Potrzebies

Google’s sense of humour is evident in its many Easter eggs and search tricks, but it pops up elsewhere too. For instance, Google’s online calculator can handle conversions into the never-actually-used-in-the-real-world Potrzebie Unit System, a ludicrous system of weights and measures invented for Mad Magazine. Note: including measurements in Potrzebie units in your next presentation may not guarantee a promotion.

    But can Google's calculator do 55378008 ?

    Dear Author: Please check your links, all of them are prefixed with http://www.lifehacker.com.au/2011/01/google-calculator-can-handle-potrzebies/ and so DO NOT WORK.

    What's with that?

    Also, grammatically speaking; "may not guarantee" is not at all correct. It is like saying "50% of the time it works every time".

      Link error fixed, sorry for that. Don't agree with you about the grammar!

      They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time it works, every time.

    You also have the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference in the calculator.
