    This reminds me of just the other day. I was using Google Translate just to type out some Japanese words in hiragana, and as I typed it tried to translate the text to English... emphasis on "tried", because it turned out sounding more like some abstract haiku.

    You *have* to read between the lines with these sorts of questions. They weren't looking for you to design a kitchen at all. They were looking to see how you approached the problem.

    If I'm ever asked any ridiculous question in an interview like this, the first thing I do is always, always clarify requirements. So I would have come back with a whole barrage of questions like:

    - Who is this kitchen for?
    - What will they use the kitchen for? What facilities do we need?
    - Who will build it? What skills to they have?
    - How much time have we got to build the kitchen?
    - What size should the kitchen be?

    Then, when I'd ascertained that the kitchen would be used by upside down baby giraffes on drugs, had to contain 10 microwaves, we had a day to build it and it needed to fit within 2 square feet, I'd say:

    "I don't think I can design a kitchen with those specifications. I don't have enough expertees on drugged giraffe's. I'd need to do a lot of research first, then get back to you."

    Is it just me or has Google been heavily recruiting lately? Received an invitation for it a while back, haven't done anything with it though.
