Do you ever get curious about what people Google search? I do. I always wonder about what I would find if I happened to stumble upon someone’s Google search history, soooo fascinating. Right? Or am I just a creep? I imagine it would say a lot about someone. For example, my latest search was ‘what does it mean when you get a shitload of flat tyres?.’ Random, I know. But no shit, in the same day I had two flat tyres on both of our cars, a bike flat tyre and then TWO pram flat tyres. Maybe I’m the douchebag here and someone is sabotaging me? That might make more sense than the universe trying to tell me something profound.

Anywho, I digress. People’s Google searches are bloody fascinating. So I looked up what the most searched items in the entire world were in 2017…and here is what came back.

Hurricane Irma, the storm that hit Florida in the US this past September was the most searched. Along with the insanity that surrounded Matt Lauer, the USA Today Show’s host and his indiscretions. There were no real surprises other than the craziness that was ‘FIDGET SPINNERS‘, they will sum up 2017 in a nutshell.

It’s no shock that Megan Markle was one of the most searched people. She has the whole world captivated at this point in time…and she is owning it. You go girl!

How-to make slime was the most searched how-to the year…amazingly. I guess parents dominate the net, no shock there.

Check out the rest of the lists below…and do yourself a favour, go check your own Google search history. It’s like a form of therapy.
