THE RIGHT TOOL FOR THE JOB....Kieran Healy tries to use Google and only Google to calculate how many Olympic-sized pools it would take to hold all the blood in the world.

Big deal. Sure, he gets his answer (1,100 OSPs), but it would be more impressive if he'd done it using only his cell phone. I just got a new cell phone myself, and given its vast array of non-phone-related features I'll bet I could do it. If Kieran still needs to use Google for a task like this, maybe what it really means is that he needs a new phone?
