'I have been catching up on old episodes of the Sopranos on HBO On Demand. (Contact your local starving Comcast salesman.)

I was a bit confused last night about chronology, because Furio came over and Big Pussy Bompensiero was still a Boss. Mox nix, I decided to look things up on Wikipedia to clarify matters.

So, rather than have to struggle through various wrong spellings of Bompensiero, I just Googled "Big Pussy". Like I said, I should have known better. grin

OK John that's on a par with the police officer who was researching motorcycles. He felt that Honda would give too many hits so he Googled blackbird. Not a good idea in an open plan office.

I don't get it…when I googled blackbird I get either: the SR-71, the Beatles song, or an actual bird (Red-winged blackbird).

Try Googling Panty Explosion and you get… well, links to webpages about the game.

John, to you have the link to the site you went to?

I was doing searches once for Benedict Arnold. Well, just be careful what you type in while in a hurry. Seems I hit keys along the line of "bend over…..", not Benedict. It was not a good scene.

While trying to type hotmail instead I typed hotmale. That was when I first discovered the need for brain bleach.

UK google probably works on a different pattern and he may have typed "black bird". I ain't testing it as it took him ages to close the pop-ups.
Bird is a fairly old fashioned colloquialism for woman over here.

If researching road building you may need to find another way to google the foundations, rather than type 'hard core slag', which is what it is made of…

Back when Google first came out, my boss was interested in manufacturing some of those ergonomic wrist rests for mouse pad users. I was asked to go on line and look up silicone and spandex manufacturers…
Back then, I didn't know any better, which is why I should have last night. grin

While searching for "freikorps" a long time ago (probably using Dogpile on Netscape) I came up with German porn sites ("free bodies") until I began adding more descriptors like "friedrich der grosse".

Just make sure you go and clear any "cookie" that may have been planted on your system or you may start getting a lot of spam.

Don't forget,there was a "Little Pussy" Malanga,too. You might get arrested for that one…

Wiki spells his name as Bonpensiero.I've recently worked my way through the entire series,up to season 6, from the library.Quite a different show from what is seen on A&E.
