Google Autocomplete

I just found a neat toy: a backdoor to Google's autocomplete mechanism; it outputs XML with the various suggestions for a given partial search.

My very first attempt, for "how do i ask a...", ( http://google.com/complete/search?q=how+do+i+ask+a&output=xml ) in addition to the expected, "...girl/guy out", also showed a fun result near the bottom: "how do i ask a question on google"
