People are curious, but man, they’re weird. The internet allows people to investigate all of their odd or intrusive questions without actually having to talk to people. Why do I need to know how many times a celebrity has been married? I don’t know, but now I have that info in my brain taking up space.
When you search a subject, Google now will show you the most common questions related to it. So, for example, if you search “Willie Nelson“, it will show you the most common questions people ask about the Outlaw. Let me tell ya, they are some real doozies.
This is the actual list:
So let’s take these one at a time:
Is Willie Nelson okay?
Yup, still not dead.

Please finish the question.

People are curious, but man, they’re weird.
