!bang loop and real time clock instant answer

Ideas:
  • Bang should be used in loop. i.e.
query " dog !g ! " should open the first result on google and similar results for other websites also
  • When someone search "time", a big digital clock showing date/time information should shown in instant answer.
I am sure these ideas are very simple to implement

A new bang can be created which returns you google desktop search results. I use it for desktop search, it would be nice if i could do it from the browser.And this tool open source too.

Nope, no sane reason to give Web access to desktop! Well this probably requires a browser plugin anyways.

Multiple bangs or piping bangs together is a popular idea. Time to show a clock also seems nice.
Have you suggested them in DuckDuckHack
