I love google  
One line of a song haunted me all day today but I could not for the life of me remember what song it was from. In desperation this evening I googled it - for my life still ahead pity me and in a moment I had the answer - it's Queen, a song called '39 from the album A Night at the Opera which I haven't listened to in years and years. I would never have remembered where that line came from and it would have driven me crazy not knowing. Thank you, google.

Also - graffiti from Pompeii - in the gladiator barracks - "On April 19th, I made bread." I can see people, 2000 years in the future, reading my LJ and finding it just about as interesting.

I love that entire album, it's been one of my favourites since its release.

Well I think it's fairly cool that someone in the gladiator barracks made bread today two thousand years ago - and thought to graffiti it for us voyeurs! *g*

And of course anthropologically, the way that you resorted to google rather than any other source dates your entry firmly to the early 2000s, which does indeed match the date on the blog entry, and reflects the long-livedness of not just one but two phenomena, quite apart from the use that is being made of the blogging format. It also suggests that females in the early twenty first century... Okay, shutting up now. *vbg*

ETA - I headdesked that I'd forgotten to change my userpic again, and then thought hang on, and left it just as it was... *vbg*

Oh do go on, please! *g* You're sounding all scientific and research-ey there. And your icon is perfect ♥

On one of my favourite albums ever, too.

Google has been a life saver when you have such things invading your head but you can'r recall for the life of you where they came from!

Google is brilliant for things like that!
