What are your 'net neighbours searching for?

Have you ever been slapping some term into a search engine and suddenly find yourself wondering just what sort of shit everyone else is searching for? Are most of the netizens out there searching for boring things? Stupid things? Pervert things? Any or all of the above?

This being the information age, there are (as you would expect) ways to find these things out. You can get reams of statistics and result from Google, Yahoo, Alta Vista, whatever, but quite frankly, it would be more trouble than it is worth. Not to mention mostly boring. You don't want boring ... you want perversely fascinating.

You want DogPile.

DogPlie is fairly cool on its own - it is basically a "meta" search engine, querying all of the big databases on your behalf . Once site, many results. But the real gem here is the "SearchSpy" function, which continually scrolls a list of all the things that people are looking for. Nowhere else will you see terms like "Stained glass classes in Boston" juxtaposed with "" in such an oddly clinical way. Bring this baby up, sit back, and prepare to be amazed.
