Google's foresight



I just discovered Google's amazing ability to predict what I'm about to type. For some very generic terms such as "why do" Google has some pretty interesting predictions:




I'd love to know what is causing people to enter these terms. Are scores of people really entering "Where are my keys" into Google? Is it helping?

Do people really want to know why men have nipples? I suspect that Mr. Dawkins has a good answer for that one.

And I'm not even touching the top answer in the Why Does category, but I am curious how the hell that would get Google's top ranking for things people are looking for. What's going on here?

I'm fully amused by this.
