Probably not the most interesting google search ever, but I'm writing an action adventure story and had to look up the most common types of guns criminals carry.  Then checked out pictures so I could describe it accurately.  

Think the post about flushing a cat down a toilet is hysterical!  Makes me wonder who in Google land does see all our crazy searches!  LOL

My Google searches for this one were pretty minimal. A few things about day trading. Also "How far is the Four Seasons from Venice Beach." But the stupidest was probably me questioning my own sanity when one of my beta readers didn't know the meaning of the word "inane." I googled it to make sure I wasn't losing my mind, and to remind myself that it really was a word. Then I changed it anyway. LOL

I just googled "word for don't like someone" because I couldn't think of the word "animosity" or how to describe it, so, yes, it's going very well.

I sat here earlier for an embarrassingly long time trying to remember the word "denial." So I totally feel you.

Supernatural had an episode on the Pishtacos. They worked at a day spa.

I completely forgot about this episode! Amy was in it, too!

Fascinating! I learn something new every day!

For this round specifically, I remember one of my more obscure searches being “most wrinkly breed of dog” The answer was inconclusive, but most sources said the Shar Pei!
