Pac-Man is thirty years old tomorrow! Can you believe? In some ways, it's amazing that the game is so old, yet it's also such a timeless classic that you could imagine it being around since the dawn of time. Anyway, the big news is that if you go to Google right now, you'll see that the site has chosen to celebrate in style. 

When I first stumbled on it the Pac-flavored Google logo, I thought it was cute. Then the classic Pac-Man music started and I realized the logo was actually playable. That's when I lost my mind and rushed to write this post. Now you all need to go and see it too. Very, very cool. 

Oh, and happy birthday Pac-Man!
