"Back to school", and the median age at Google

So I click through on the Google Checkout back school promotion to see which merchants are involved, and my first response is, "Whoa, someone miscoded the page!" Having gradeschool aged kids, when I see "back to school" I instinctively think disney lunch boxes, backpacks, and #2 pencils. For a couple of seconds, I was mystified to see boxer shorts, sunglasses, and futons... then I realized that (perhaps due to the relative youth of the Google employee base -- always notable when visiting) that Google's "back to school" perspective is "back to the dorm"...
