I'm (NOT) feeling lucky ... with Google

DiamondKT shares about a set of actual interview questions should you ever want to be employed at Google. See if you're feeling lucky with these questions!

1. Solve this cryptic equation, realizing of course that value for M and E could be interchanged. No leading zeros are allowed: WWWDOT - GOOGLE = DOTCOM

2. How many different ways can you color an icosahedron with one of three colors on each face?

3. Which of the following expresses Google's over-arching philosophy?

a) I'm feeling lucky
b) Don't be evil
c) Oh, I already fixed that
d) You should never be more than 50 feet from food
e) All of the above

4. You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and your mass is proportionally reduced so as to maintain your original density. You are then thrown into an empty glass blender. The blades will start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do?

5. How would you find out if a machine's stack grows up or down in memory?

6. Explain a database in three sentences to your eight-year-old nephew.

7. How many gas stations would you say there are in the United States?
