Have you heard of the party game “As the Crow Flies?” Okay, probably not, since we just made it up. Here’s how it works: next time you’re killing time with friends or family, name two spots on the planet—say, Hawaii and Siberia. Get everyone’s best guess on exactly how far apart they are—2,000 miles? 5,000? 8,000? Then pull up the Google Search app on your phone and ask, “How far is it from Hawaii to Siberia?”, and there's your answer. (This “as the crow flies” distance is a new Google Search feature that works for far-flung locales, beyond what you can drive or walk.) Whoever’s guess was furthest off has to… well, we’ll let you choose their penalty. They pick the next one, and around it goes until everyone’s properly… penalized. Caw! Caw!
