current mood: silly

I just coined what I think is a great term, which doesn't seem to be in use already. You know how, sometimes, people check how common a word is by Googling it? I just did that, and had to report the result to someone. Rather than say "it's got 1,500,000 hits on Google", I said "1.5 megagoogles".

Hmm, it looks like few words get into the gigagoogle range. "HTTP", yes, but that doesn't really count. "Food" is 866 MG, and "sex", surprisingly, is only 89 MG (I must have Safe Search on). Oh, here we are: "computer" is 1.1 GG. "Floccinauccinihilipilification" is only 550G.

No wonder your daughter and I were discussing googleplexes today.
