These are the top 10 "trending" (search queries with the highest amount of traffic over a sustained period in 2012 as compared to 2011) global Google search and Google image searches for 2012. All in all, a pretty depressing collection. Surprisingly absent from the list were "sustainable energy", "Geekologie Writer penis so big it has its own cell phone tower" and "progress in cancer research." F***ing Gangnam Style -- I want off this rock. Google also compiled the top searches (including categories like events, people, movies and tv shows, etc) for individual countries, which you can access HERE if you think that might make you feel better, which it won't. It's a shame too because I started today pretty optimistic and now I've managed to slip back down to cripplingly depressed and it's not even 9:30. Definitely feels like a drink on my lunch break kind of day. "What day doesn't?" High-five to that! I'm feeling better already.
Thanks to SpikedPoppedCollar (I don't even know what that means but I don't approve) and Tom, who don't search for things online, online things search for THEM. Creepy!
