Ever have one of those memories that tug at the very edge of your consciousness, poking you a little, but without being about to remember exactly what it is? I’ve had one of those solved this week.  I remember reading a comic book where the bad guy was called “The Googol”.  I had remembered it briefly when Google opened shop, but I couldn’t remember the reference.  It came back to me the other day, so I searched and searched on-line, convinced that it was a Tintin story.  It wasn’t.  It was this.

Glad I cleared it up.  Irritatingly, I should have just used Wikipedia, as there’s a reference to it in on the Googol page.
