Tip Wild card matching Google queries

An asterisk can be used in a Google query as a wild card placeholder in a search phrase.
For example, if you forgot how to spell “Dwemthy”, a search for:
“*’s array” why the lucky stiff
finds results for “Dwemthy’s Array”.
Or, for example, you could try:
“Yukihiro Matsumoto was born in *”

(Though “Yukihiro Matsumoto was born in” might actually be better depending on what you are looking for…)
