Go to www.google.com/trends

Why is that sign the 13th most popular search today????????????

Are the terrorists trying to play with our minds?

Am I overreacting?

Why would so many people search for it today, you know?

Google won't tell us, so we may never know.

Sanjay Gupta being named Surgeon General takes up 4 of the Top 10 searches. I didn't know he had so many fans.

In a day or two when these are no longer popular search terms, people will wonder what we were talking about. Let's not tell them.

Wow, so THAT'S what the Google daily search trends look like, after all the pornography related terms are filtered out from the top 50 spots?
