My father used to say “It grew legs and walked off” when a tool or keys or other household object was not where it belonged. Here is a pile of tools and keys in that very act! Someone, I shall not say who, used these objects and then abandoned them on an old picnic table. The newly grown legs are not visible, but these tools and keys were not put back where they belong and have “walked off”.
Google knows all. Well, not quite but it is great for getting information that can be mechanically searched for. Today I needed to spell the word facetious. I first tried OS X Leopard’s built in dictionary, but my first guess was too far off. So I tried a few approximations in a google search and it found the spelling and definition. Cool. And useful.
