Location: , location -- they say it's important. But where you are can be gone, in the smallest of moments. When breath it gets ragged, when the blood won't stay in... I fought death for your love -- I couldn't possibly win.
Making comics leads us to Google things we might never have Googled otherwise. To wit:

"past tense of wuv"

Oof, yep, half of my search history is just Extremely Specific Queries about midcentury life because I put an entirely unwarranted amount of effort into avoiding anachronisms (and they still happen). Also, biology questions, surprisingly??

Recently, we've got:

1957 college admissions process
history of psychokinesis research
radical feminism origins
how long does it take bones to decompose
how do rumens work
can herbivores digest meat
what is the difference between naturism and nudism
monetary inflation converter
peacetime military positions

There's a bunch of different upcoming strips encompassed within those searches, but it's kind of fun to imagine they're all part of the same plotline.

The current chapter of my comic takes place in 1944, so I had to put in more research than usual.

Much of this research was centered around military stuff. But there were also a bit more unusual things that I wanted to know.

For example:

- Did New York do "blackouts" during WWII?
- Did Howard Hughes do anything interesting in 1944?
- How did aforementioned Mr. Hughes, William Randolph Hearst and Fred Trump (yes, the father of the current US president!) look like in 1944?
- Were penthouses already a thing at that time?
- Did Frank Lloyd Wright happen to design any penthouses?
- Where did he live in 1944? And was this also the place where he designed the Guggenheim Museum?
- What would someone from Ireland say as an expression of shock and surprise?

Not necessarily "googling" but I'm browsing online stores with female fashion A LOT in order to decide what the looks of my female characters should be. It got to the point where each female has her own specific store, so the styles could remain consistent. Not really true in case of male fashion, as my male characters present a rather generic/dull style.

After Surge I'm planning on releasing a new comic, so right now I'm in the middle of researching it, the main character is a crime boss, and I also have a detective character, so I've been researching the hierarchy of organised crime gangs in the UK (that's where it's set, sort of) and detective roles in the UK police force, it's a lot harder than I though it would be.

Basically anything along the lines of:
"How long does it take for a body to decompose"
"Would ____ kill you"
"How long before rigor mortis sets in"
"Mental trauma symptoms"
"Can you live without [insert bodypart]"

You know, all that fun stuff.
Most of it while in incognito mode.

-man with feet on desk
-man with arms crossed
-man running
-beanie hat
-chickens

It's mostly just been googling the Terraria wiki to look for item ids.

But recently I've googled "Is a bone stronger than metal"

Oh, just a number of historical things. But the internet is insufficient; my search must broaden. The weirdest it gets is looking up Shark Facts to see what I want to include in the Sharkfolk physiology. This has led male sharkfolk to be interesting for straight women exploring certain boundaries.

Yes,of course, all kinds of relatively innocuous stuff, over the years, but of course the 'ahem' adult stuff
like BDSM, FemDom, assorted nudes and, and... "might never (absolutely not !) have Googled otherwise" is the 'ryder', the 'pass', to get away with justify it.

" NO, dear, I just need all the nudes for, you know, getting my anatomy drawing correct... "
" Oh those...ah, well my imagination's not good enough for the sex toys and... "
" Well it's been so long...I needed to refresh my - NO !, no, that's not a criticism ! Ouch !"

Haha B-)

"Police Airbags"

"Folding Metal staff"

"Rat Genitals"

That last one may not have actually happened, but was definitely contemplated

I wrote a joke about a snake penis for my vampire western spinoff... then I Googled "snake penis" (to make sure snakes possessed such an appendage), then found out snakes have two(!) penises. That's per boy snake. I had to rewrite the joke to allow for biology's realities.

Taily:can herbivores digest meat

Amazing question. I've never even considered that they couldn't, only that they didn't.
