Oh well, Google Chrome is OK sometimes.

Works with Chrome for me, after all it's Google's product. You just need to keep the cursor still while hovering over the pic and you get a balloon text with a joke in it. It helps if you know who Fermat was and his theorem, too. Kind of a nerd joke for math geeks.

No, don't get me wrong. I did mis speak there. I use
Google Chrome, but it did not show anything. I guess it's better
luck for me next time.

Re Jorge Luis Borges



When searching google.com, this colourful montage appears showing a maze of “magical realism”.
An old man is standing in the picture of complex scenery including a library, labyrinths, staircases and “forking paths”.

Clicking on the original picture takes the viewer to information about Jorge Luis Borges. He would have been 112 today.
