Samuel L. Jackson is an American treasure. From Do the Right Thing to The Hateful Eight, and Jurassic Park to The Avengers, he's been a staple of classic films, providing audiences with an entertaining and important infodump. Let's just say if you need to get through some exposition, you could do a lot worse than Samuel L. Jackson. 

But what do we know about Samuel L. Jackson? For a guy we've watched and enjoyed for decades, I'd say surprisingly little. So people turn to Google to answer their quesitons, but they might as well go to the source. 

Jackson teamed up with Wired to answer some of the internet's most common and incomplete quesitons about the actor, and the responses, as you could imagine, are pretty bad ass.

Google's newest doodle is the product of a contest asking children to design an invention that would improve the world. Audrey Zhang designed the "transformative water purifier" that you can see on the Google home page. Needless to say this is one ridiculously talented young illustrator.

Today Google released a concept video for their new augmented reality glasses that are soon to be demoed in prototype form. Personally, I'm not sure how much of a cyborg I want to feel like on a daily basis, but the technology may have some potential. Thoughts, WINners?

There’s something about Google’s annual “Year in Search” videos that give you the chills every single time.

This one is no different.

Google also says we have made “trillions” of searches this year and has released stats on the most trending topics of 2014.

Robin Williams, the World Cup and Ebola were the top 3, followed by the missing Malaysia Airlines flight, the Ice Bucket Challenge and that annoying/addictive little game Flappy Bird.

The most searched person was Jennifer Lawrence, the top tech search was the iPhone 6, and the top athlete was James Rodriguez.
