    So I have to confess, I really enjoy their doodles but now I have a question:

    Yesterday they had one for the 115th Anniversary of the discovery of X-rays.

    Today is the 235th Anniversary of the Marine Corp....why no doodle
    for that :confused:

    Anna, who has 2 nephews in the Marines and a sister who is the Director of an X-ray technology school.

    Allow me to pull out my guide to all things Google and find the answer to a question that perhaps only Google would know ...

    Sorry, it seems as though MacRumors' guide doesn't cover why Google missed an anniversary.

    It may be that the detection of Röntgenstrahlung is more important in the history of humanity than the introduction of another military force?

    And your connection to two marines and one doctor does not count, even though my uncle was a doctor and my father, my brother and me served in the military. And that doesn't count too.

    Please don't try it, even for a joke.

    And Röntgenstrahlung is the original name for "X-Ray", as the man who detected "x-rays" is Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen.

    Duh, I should have known that although it's been a mighty long time since taking the National Boards :D

    BTW.....I only mentioned my sister and nephews to explain why these particular anniversaries caught my eye!
