So I use google for units conversion a lot. I just searched for "1/2 mile in yards." As expected, the unit converter came up telling me that 1/2 mile is 880 yards. The weird part is the actual web search results -- they're mostly ads for beachfront vacation rentals! Plus a few workout plans.

For my own future reference, 1/2 mile is 880 yards, which is 17.6 laps at my pool (too bad google doesn't have a "miles to laps in your local pool" converter). One mile is 35.2 laps.

I wish LJ had a search feature. Meaning, a search feature that will search all my entries, including friends-only and private, and which I can use without allowing other search engines to index my journal. All I want to know is when I read particular books and whether I wrote reviews of them, but I only know about the ones I read since I started tagging entries.
