I had a dream this week, in which I was eating lunch at the Googleplex. It was in the cafeteria on the ground floor of building 42. I looked out the window and there was a giant mechanical cow flying upside down far off in the sky. It got closer and closer and closer and finally burst through the big glass wall of the cafeteria, which shattered into tiny pieces. No-one was hurt, and it turned out this was an entertainment laid on by Larry and Sergey, and they didn't mind the cost of replacing the glass as keeping Googlers happy was more important than profits. And it was only when I woke up that I realized what was so strange about this dream: there is no cafeteria in building 42.
