GoogleLookup Function. Nifty.

Seriously? A single link post to a feature that's almost a year old? Less nifty.

There is another a Google lookup function that would reveal a currently active post about Google's features...

Would this be a bad time to post a link to a site about this kid who really likes ninjas?

Semantic search for Wikipedia. Swell.

How is this even remotely like the SQL HAVING clause? The having clause filters combined rows based on aggregate functions. This looks up properties of things based on semantic information. HAVING doesn't do anything with statistical search algorithms. If your group by doesn't reference something explicitly in the database, then having won't work.
