Top Seven Search On Google...Syphilis

Wow, it's been a while since I looked to see what people were searching on Google.  I was shocked to see syphilis was number three.  Is this due to a dangerous rise of STD's or because a recent episode of House speculates that he has it? Neurosyphilis was number one clocking in as volcanic in temperature confirming the trend was driven by the television program.

It's amazing how a simple television show can drive people to learn something new.

Other hot topics relates to searches for Tornados in Virginia, Miley Cyrus, oh yeah and the bro code (got me).

What's really neat is that you can see how these trends peak right after the shows air.  Check it out at www.google.com/trends/hottrends

The short story I've been writing is a science fiction story that delves into the subject of suicide.  Searching the trend it's interesting to see that the top ten countries searches originate from are some of the most industrialized western countries and not a single of the ten is eastern.
