Hive Mind

Google is the collective brain of the Internet, not only storing vast amounts of data, but showing us, moment-by moment, what people are thinking based on what they search for. And sometimes, they are thinking pretty odd things. <p> To check in with the hive mind, we started with a browser that had no cookies, history or other data that would cause Google to tailor the results to us. We simply typed in the first words of some basic, open-ended questions — What is? Why is? — and looked at what Google suggested, based on the most common searches people are doing. <p> Here are screen shots of what we got.

Is it bad…

Think about how common this question is the next time you go to shake someone's hand.

How often…

Hopefully you got an answer before you starved to death.

Is it weird…

First, we are hoping that men are asking this question. Second, we recommend waxing you stomach. Less chance of razor burn. And if your boyfriend likes to shave his stomach, yeah, that's kinda weird.

How do I...

Subtle communication is an art. How do you make your point without offending or embarrassing the other person? <p> But do you really have to be so tactful when telling someone to remove is hand from your rear end?

Where is…

You don't want to know. He will kill you!

Why is…

Dude, I knew the answer to this one, but I can't remember.
