The -whatever is really good for narrowing stuff down and getting rid of clearly unwanted topics.
Also, like HiEy said the define: whatever is good for getting direct definitions.

Stupid smiley messed up my post. Replacing "X" with "Y"...

Also, (define:Y) will get you a definition for whatever you put instead of "Y". It`s handy for quickly finding several definitions for a term.

filetype:torrent is also useful for finding, well torrents.

filetype:torrent Thor is an example.

Using (") before and after search terms is not only useful for searching for phrases, but will also make them more specific. For example, searching on (hat) will get you both "hat" and "hats" in searches, but ("hat") will make sure that they all have "hat" in them, and not just "hats".

Also, (define:X) will get you a definition for whatever you put instead of "X". It`s handy for quickly finding several definitions for a term.

wow, its like I`m really in 1999

when searching your gmail, if you type "from:" you can sort by just that contact

also, go search "do a barrel roll" or "tilt" or "answer to life, the universe, and everything"

The Internet is a dark and wild forest filled with mysteries and adventures. Precision takes all of the fun out of getting lost.

LOLZ! @davymid, my friend used to do the same thing, I had to show her how to make use of the `favorites` function... I thought she was the only one in the whole world doing that!

Quotes, minus sign, ... neato!

They forgot about the OR function, for example, I could search for "her gigantic OR enormous tits OR boobs" and it will bring up exact phrases for

her gigantic tits
her enormous tits
her gigantic boobs
her enormous boobs

I usually know what I am searching for, and type it in. Even vague details eventually lead to what I am looking for.
