What’s The Weirdest Thing You’ve Ever Googled?


Good Morning fellow bloggers from a breezy Northern Ireland.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever googled for the purposes of research?

The Battle of Waterloo features heavily for me.

Drop your comments below. Don’t be shy, we’re all friends here.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. I think I frequently ask google an array of questions! Recent questions include:

    – how to floss dance (apparently a very popular question in England)
    – who were the beaver trappers from the Rockies?
    – cakes made without eggs, flour or sugar (which probably is not a cake)
    – do I have to be a member of The Ned to book a table in one of the restaurants?
    – where can I buy Kirsch?

  2. How much does a human leg weigh? 🦵🏼

    The backstory: Although I’m a stay-at-home mom now, once upon a time, I worked as a pediatric pharmacist at a children’s hospital. One day we had a child who had a below-the-knee amputation. Medication dosing in children is weight-based. However, the medical team wasn’t certain of an accurate post-op weight because the child had a giant cast on the remainder of the leg, so putting them on a scale wouldn’t be accurate. So I Googled how much a human leg weighs (as a percentage of body weight), knocked off about half of that (since half-ish of the leg was removed), and came up with a dosing weight to use for the pain medications. Google is useful in the “real world” too! 🙃

  3. As history teacher was researching photos of mummies for something in class. We were using a projector and for some reason or other, I had to quickly put my hand in front of the projector and turn things off quickly, much to the displeasure of some 13 year olds. 🙂

  4. My current search history is filled with the gangster Charlie Birger, the history of Harrisburg Illinois (town doesn’t amount to much now but in the 1920s it was popular), and popular phrases and names in the 20s.

  5. This wasn’t research for a book or class, but more of curiosity. We were watching Doomsday Preppers and one of the episodes was about a guy who was trying to escape Manhattan should there be a nuclear strike. The show stated they would find out approximately 30 minutes before it hits. They were talking about taking HOURS to get out of the city… but that would not work, as most of the immediate damage would occur within “tens of minutes” of the strike… The narrators did not correct this major issue at all…

  6. I don’t remember specifics, unfortunately (thank you Topamax) but they usually relate to whatever book I’m reading.

    Therefore, I might be looking up the different types of bubonic plague and how you die from them, various people, geographic locations, lots and lots of diseases, a myriad of torture devices if I’m reading about the Middle Ages, terrorist groups…

    I comfort myself that the NSA, if they’re monitoring my Google searches, also has access to my Amazon, Kindle, and PINES (library) accounts, so they can see why I’m searching for these things. 😂


      1. I almost researched two story fast food restaurants, but I was already feeling sorry for myself just reading about them.


          1. You wrote about them! Perhaps I should clarify “two story” – I mean ones with two levels. A Burger King having stairs here in America would be like Buckingham Palace allowing bachelorette parties. It’s simply inconceivable. 😂


  7. “How to build a coffin.”

    “Premature burial.”

    “Being buried alive, how long can someone stay alive?”

    For context, I was writing a horror story (and no, my character didn’t survive being buried alive.)


  8. Whenever I want to show my boyfriend a meme and I don’t know its name, my google searches are hilarious. “Angry skeleton, and he isn’t spooky but spoopy and his wife isn’t on his level.”
