I recently set up my Google account to automatically back up all of my photos. This included thousands of Washington Capitals photos over the years. Most of them were so old that I likely never planned to look at them again. Then something I didn’t expect happened – Google ‘Auto Awesome’ made several of them come to life. Sure, in this day of giffing everything, these are rather tame, but considering that this was software that made this automatically, based on old photos in my own albums, I found this rather amusing. Unfortunately, it didn’t think anyone in these photos were in love.

Sometimes, Google thinks it’s snowing.
