Wacky research

One of the more fun things about writing is doing research. For shorter stories, or a quick, one time tidbit, the internet is indispensable. I really don't know how writers used to do it before the World Wide Web and search engines. They must have been slaves to the library.

I found myself looking up expensive Italian men's shoes the other day...along with demon names, and the Dutch word for "sweetheart". What, you can't see the commonality? Heh.
not *these* shoes

What the most unusual thing you've researched?
