An alternate use of Google's search engine; use it as spell checker!
Think about it...have the spelling of (obscure) words verified by Google's 'democracy'!
Easy as a, b, c...whenever you're not sure about the spelling of a word, just feed your best guess into a Google search box and see what it comes back with.
You might see a 'Did you mean:'...with your suggestion, but then spelled correctly! If not, chances are pretty high that the initial suggestion was spelled correctly in the first place, especially when there are a lot of search results.
And, if you can't choose between the initial suggestion and the 'Did you mean:' alternative, just pick the one returning the most search results! ;)

Pure democracy...or? :)
