Google Interviews

A recent Marketplace Money segment about interview questions at Google reminded me of a Monty Python sketch from 1969. Oh, how something's never change. They were mocking some of the silliness that goes on with interviews and the random sorts of hoops and ratings we put candidates through. Google uses questions like...

"What number comes next in this series: ten, nine, eight, eleven, hundred, thirteen..."
"If you were the size of a nickel and tossed in a blender that's about to start in 60 seconds, what would you do?"

It's justified in terms of trying to figure out how a person thinks. But watch this video, and just wonder if Monty Python designed Google's interview process.
