So I found myself googling "Why is cannibalism bad for you?" and had a chuckle at what someone viewing my search history would think. And then I got to wondering what the rest of you might search for.

So put down the weirdest thing you've ever searched for. Oh... and you can't explain it at all! Just list the search terms without any context and let us make our own inferences. (Really curious what Kuhrusty comes back with.)

I'm not sure how best to check my search history, but just typing single letters into Google has revealed that I have, not too long ago, searched for ...

"synonyms for insincere"

I work in HIV/AIDS prevention.

HIV/AIDS is sexually transmitted, and some "marginalized" populations (often defined by sexual behavior) are at much higher risk for acquiring HIV. Sometimes I don't always understand the jargon tossed about by some of these populations...

Makes for some excellent search history. And the beauty of it all? I get to discuss said search history with my boss and coworkers.

I do love my job.

edit: and I think I even did a reasonable job of keeping this post from getting this thread sent right to RSP!

Years ago saw some guy on a talk show who wrote a book on "googleisms" or something, terms that returned exactly one search result. So we decided to try it.

My friend tried "vorpal ornithopter" but no dice. I couldn't come up with one

I don't ever want to run in to one of those...

My search history actually doesn't turn up anything interesting wiht single letters into google...

I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

"Rear-touch deviant"

Context: I worked on a game called 'Little Deviants' for the Sony PSP Vita. Said device has a touch pad on the back of the device that was referred to as 'rear-touch'.

I blame the podcast Mysterious Universe, for mentioning it.

Saw them live in the '90s a couple times. Quite a show to say the least. Had to google it myself to see if they are still around and found out her (Kambra Pfahler) brother is the drummer for Jawbreaker.
