Power Googling

Google Blogoscoped has a great list of advanced tricks for Google searching. One of the tips that I didn't know:
You can use the wildcard operator in phrases. This is helpful for finding song texts – let’s say you forgot a word or two, but you remember the gist, as in ["love you twice as much * oh love * *"] – and similar tasks.
You can use the wildcard character without searching for anything specific at all, as in this phrase search: ["* * * * * * *"].
(Also useful is Google's list of search features, one I wasn't familiar with was the Q & A search, which sounds a lot like the old "Ask Jeeves")
