I love Google logos,  they use to play with letters and drawings sometimes in a really funny way.

This time some rumors spreads about this UFO Logo, believe it or not someone thought was actually related to a UFO affair  …arrrghhhhhhhhh

those rumors become stronger when in twitter the Google guys wrote an enigmatic: "1.12.12 15 1.18.5 20,15 21,19".

the explanation was really more interesting, everything was just a celebration of one of the most infamous translation in the history of information technology : the game “zero wing” from SegaZero Wing

All your base are belong to us

of course knowing that also the twitter massage assumed a different meaning, and from a cryptic message form outer space become simply:

1=a 12=l 12=l ……… All your….

Some newspapers and bloggers have been captured by the dark side and started to talk about alien connections and so on…..

enjoy the wikipedia article and the translation :)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


This article contains Japanese text. Without proper rendering support, you may see question marks, boxes, or other symbols instead of kanji and kana.

The phrase is a line of subtitled dialogue from the introduction to Zero Wing.

"All your base are belong to us" (often shortened to "All Your Base", "AYBABTU", or simply "AYB") is a broken English phrase that was central to an Internet phenomenon, or meme, in 2000-2002, with the spread of a Flash animation that depicted the slogan. The text is taken from the opening cut scene of the 1991 European Sega Mega Drive version of the Japanese video game Zero Wing,[1] by Toaplan which was poorly translated by Sega of Europe. It was popularized by the Something Awful message forums.[2]

[edit] Comparison with original Japanese

It appears from the original text that CATS may be the name of an organization, not just of the particular cyborg villain appearing on the screen.[1]
