Google has disallowed the founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin from being killed by two of the terminator robot series. The T-1000 and the T-800 series of robots have been disallowed to kill the founders of the company. In honor of the 20th anniversary of the terminator movie Google has made a little joke and that is they made a play on the robots.txt file which to webmasters allows us to control the robots (crawlers) from accessing our website.
As you can see, Google has told that the two series of terminator robots mentioned are not allowed to kill either of the founders of their company. However, that does mean that other iterations of the terminator robots could come and kill the founders but these two from the first two movies are not allowed to “access the founders”.
This joke is funny because those of you who are terminator fans will laugh at Google’s poor attempt at stopping the power that is the terminator and for you webmasters out there you get to laugh at the fact Google made a joke of the robots.txt file. Not sure how that is funny but if you laugh more power to you!
Google has been known to make little jokes like this and little easter eggs they do it every year for April Fools days, the Pokemon collection that was on Google Maps, Google has just been all over the Easter Egg game in recent times. It is an important note that if Google can control the terminator robots it is in turn Skynet which means we are worse off than we originally thought.
The joke while not be funny to stumble upon this is an interesting experience so check it out you terminator fans and happy 20th anniversary? Please don’t kill Larry Page? We will figure it out as it happens.
What do you think of this joke did you laugh? I will tell you the honest truth it didn’t make me laugh. However, finding it was truly amazing and was one of those random occurrences that you will find on the internet.
