I can’t believe pal Jeff didn’t jump on this report about how AOL let out 21 million search queries of more than 650,000 of its users. The article cites a few of the more bizarre personal search histories exposed and proves without a doubt: there are some shiny scary people out there.
So…what’s your search history look like? Would you want your family and friends to know how much of a freak you are? Would you want them to know about your obsessive David Hasselhoff or Olsen Twins searches? No, I didn’t think so.
How about old flames or spouses? Searched them? I’ll admit. I have. Never found much. What I have not searched are things like “free angry stuff to send to an ex lover,” like some loser in the AOL data did.
Anyway, a look at my recent history turns up these exciting searches:
- Dell PowerEdge 1800
- Honda Civic v. Toyota Corolla
- Lexus ES350
- SQL Server 2000 datasheet
- Idylwilde Farm
- Pink Floyd Pig
- rolling stones halifax tickets
- Mary Poppins Broadway
- Decordova museum
- Sean Patrick’s
- Griffin RoadTrip nextag
- ExxonMobil profits
- Powell Stone & Gravel
- XML Integration
What I also find interesting are the search terms that return my blog as a result. Here are the current top searches that bring people here:
- I wish that I’d sailed the darkened seas
- Caiaphas the Elder
- Human Destiny by Lecomte du Nouy review comments
- Trombone Player Wanted Marcus Buckingham
- curb your enthusiasm cheryl and larry’s vows
- fidelity 401k lava lamp
- hank III overrated
- marrying your soulmate
- rock star penis molds
- rockstar penis cast
- rockstar penis molds
- ryan adams wonderwall
- wakefield merchants baseball
Clearly, the penis mold is a big draw and more scary evidence about who’s out there. Ever wonder who might be “Googling” you?
