It’s always interesting to look at the referrer log for my site and see what search terms brought people to my little corner of cyberspace. Some of the queries are a little more… disturbing than others. Some of them also make me wonder why that particular search engine thought this site would be a good match.
Take, for instance, the person who came here from Yahoo after searching for “photos of penis lifting objects”. Not sure if this is a request for tools for handling one’s penis without direct contact or if it’s a request for demonstrations by men of unusual weightlifting techniques. Either way I’m not sure I want to know for certain.
Then there’s the slightly more intelligible search for “download at your own risk jpg of Bush wanted for terrorism” that brought someone here from Google even though I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned such a picture here on the site. For that matter I don’t think I have any “sexy egyptian woman pics on the net” or “Bad things involving Thomas Jefferson” on this site either. Not that I’m opposed to sexy egyptian woman pics or bad things involving Thomas Jefferson, but I don’t recall talking about either recently. Lastly, I don’t think I’ve ever, ever mentioned the beleaguered Kurds before this point in time and yet someone got this site as a good spot for “gassing kurds pics”.
Ah, the wonders of modern technology, eh?
