I notice that one commenter screwed up, though:
“Using CSS3 (and with help from our resident tech wizards Marcin Wichary and Kris Hom), the doodle enables anyone to navigate the Nautilus down (nearly) 20,000 leagues with the simple pull of a lever,” Google doodler Jennifer Horn wrote in a blog post. “And for those using devices with built-in accelerometers and the latest versions of Google Chrome or Firefox, it’s even simpler—just tilt your device in the direction you want to explore and the Nautilus will follow.”
In honor of author Jules Verne's 183rd birthday, Google on Tuesday added an interactive doodle to its homepage that allows visitors to navigate underwater scenes straight out of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."
A League is about 3 miles, so 20,000 Leagues would be 60,000 miles down, which is absurd. As we’ve discussed endlessly on this board, the title means “20,000 Leagues traveled while under water”, not 20,000 Leagues straight down.
