When you have a blog you can see what searches people Googled to land on your page. A lot of them are about what you would expect. Sometimes it is surprising. A post I wrote awhile back that talked about cave paintings has been the most searched for thing on my blog for a while. The internet is hungry for essays on Cave Paintings, who knew?

But my favorite stuff are the searches that just make me bewildered, either because I’m surprised people are into it, or I don’t remember ever writing about it. Here are some of my favorite random searches that people used to land on this blog.
