Using the search tool!

Just a quick note on my way to class: I was checking whether I’d used a structure correctly, so I plugged it into the search on my Chrome bar, and remembered a hint that a lot of others have shared but I’d forgotten each time: when you start a search, you get suggestions, and sometimes those are really fun to look at in class! (You can also do this on Twitter, as Martina and Kristy Placido have pointed out, but I can’t seem to stay focused when I open Twitter.)

Here’s a couple of examples, though they aren’t really long as some can be. Unfortunately sometimes these come up with a lot of not-so-nice suggestions, so I’m happy even if they’re short, as long as I can take a picture for my students.

I especially like the options the first search gave me, since the final one is “Who is planning to go to Mars?” By opening that one, I got a nice article on prices and options for travel. I hadn’t seen such an article (because I hadn’t looked for one) in English, but I’m sure I can work it into something we do soon.
