Google Wierdo’s

So this mornign I listened to a Monday’s episode from a few weeks ago where Rory Blythe did a “Google Wierdo’s” segment… its basically a look at what weird, wonderful and disturbing search phrases people entered in their search engine that lead them to his site.


I took a look at my logs for this month and I have some oddballs here – it seems that this month there were a lot of depressed people coming to my site (well, it could be one of the other blogs on the site) anyway here they are:


Morbid
“days till i die”
“die for my sister poem”
“small blisters on the arm”
Ok, I can manage to ignore the first two but for this one… Go see a doctor dude! 


Namesakes
“sainsbury posters”
“leadership style in sainsbury”

First thought “WOW, someone wants posters of *my* family?”  Second thought “I’m getting the idea that they’re not talking about my family, maybe its that UK food store.”


Too much info
“manhood poem”
“python sick and tired”
“pee buzzer distraction”
Hrm… I’m not sure if my site is the best resource for low self esteem, erectile dysfunction, or urinary problems… but I sure hope those guys get the problems solved.


From the Geeks
“what makes a good star trek story”
We all want to know the answer to how to make stories with star trek like intrigue – personally I like the “infinite number of monkeys with an infinite number of typewriters“ theory.
“coffee drinking stats”
Wow – was there a coffee census I missed out on?  Damn, I knew I shouldn’t have switched to decaf!
“just being a geek”
How silly is that – if you have to google to find out how to be a geek, you’re already waaaaay past any hope of being one…
“group by having sql code gender”
This one’s a bit silly because I’ve never heard of any SQL code having genders… although that could explain why our server gets so moody at times.  I’ll have to go check to see if its cyclical.
“beep dong or ding visual basic”
I’m sure there are plenty of C# coders out there who would share the same sentiments!  @#$*&% visual basic!


Who woulda guessed
“email petitions blog maths“
Wow… someone actually looked for that stuff… I wrote a rant about how useless e-mail petitions really were and gave some stats behind them to “prove“ my point… I never thought anyone else in the world would try googling for them…
“sadeveloper t-shirt photo”
Ok, so which of you SA Developers is trying to get a sneak peak at the latest in fashion?  Or are we really such an innovative and leading group of people that there are other’s out there who just want to look like us?
