Fun With Google

Use the Google search box in the toolbar of your browser. Type an S. Then type a C.

Scott Walker!

Now, using the down arrow on your keyboard, select Scott Walker. Then, use the right arrow on your keyboard to move to the right of his name. Then type a space and the word “is”.

Just a note…it won’t work with Bing or Yahoo search. They’re a little…behind the times.
