Google keeps track of the darndest things. Well, every thing, but there are some weird things in that. If you so much as enter one word into a Google search bar, the search engine will try and finish your query like that annoying cousin at Thanksgiving who thinks he can finish all of your sentences. He can’t. At least Google has analytics on its side, analyzing and computing the most searched phrases on the Internet. If you stop and read these autocomplete searches, like Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba did, you will find some very weird stuff.
Elba and McConaughey entered their names into Google and found that we ask a lot of strange questions about them.
- Where are they right now?
- Are they left handed?
- Are they related to people with different last name?
We are all very weird and probably should apologise to Elba and McConaughey.
