Not a day goes by when I don't find myself wondering the height or age of some celebrity; questions like these plague me. I turn to Google for hope.
An example: after noticing pictures of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, I wondered just how tall each of them was. So, How tall is Tom Cruise?
For height, formulate your query like this: tom cruise tall or tom cruise height. Here's how tall Tom Cruise is. Katie Holmes didn't come up, but I can confirm her age with a query like katie holmes age giving me her age.
Also at the O'Reilly hacks site.
update (17 Jun 05) Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are now engaged. Proposal location: the top of the Eiffel Tower.
