Australia, you seem very, very confused.
The list of this year’s most Googled terms has been released by… well, by Google. And I have to say, I’m a little concerned about the types of things you are typing into your friendly neighbourhood search engine.
There were some truly questionable questions the people of this fine nation asked of Google this year.
Thankfully, my nickname is ‘The Human Google’*, and I’m here to help answer those pesky questions you’re too embarrassed to ask out loud.
(*Okay, so maybe no-one has ever called me that in my entire life… but let me have this one, yeah?)
“What is love?”
Oh, this is a tough one.
Let’s refer to singer Haddaway’s breakout 1993 hit single What Is Love? for some guidance here:
Baby, don’t hurt me / Don’t hurt me no more
“How to screenshot on mac”
I’m going to answer this question by posing a question of my own: WHY?
What are you screenshotting? Is it that convo between you and that guy from Tinder who keeps sending you slimy messages? Or is it a hilarious meme that you need to screenshot so you can post on your own Instagram to get a solid nine likes?
No matter how you do it, there’s one thing to always, ALWAYS remember: screenshot responsibly.
“Why is the ocean salty?”
Easy: because of all the sharks that cry all night, every night since Jaws was released way back in 1975.
It’s a little known fact that before then, the ocean was 100 per cent fresh water.
Now? Great Whites all over the sea spend their nights holding hands (fins?), forming a support circle while they talk about all the ways they are hated and persecuted. It’s actually super depressing.
“Why is there a leap day?”
Every leprechaun is born on a leap day, i.e. February 29. If we don’t celebrate a leap day every four years, then leprechauns don’t get born and we don’t get pots of gold at the end of every rainbow. Duh.
“Why is biodiversity important?”
ONE TYPE OF PUPPER IS NOT ENOUGH.
All of the dogs, all of the time, you guys. Biodiversity rulez. (Post continues after gallery.)
