Google has released their annual video highlighting what people searched for the most in the past year. They also have an interactive site in which you can explore the top searches of the year. It's somwhat confusing, as it is all image-based, and what does "View #my2013 Gallery" mean, anyway? I did not search for any of those things! At least, I don't think so, as most of them aren't labeled.
The "trends globe" is kind of interesting. You can check 150 cities of the world to see what their residents searched for the most by date. And yes, it's a little creepy how they start with the city you are closest to right now. (It took me to Cincinnati, which just shows you how far out in the sticks I am -the nearest big city is not even in my state!) Don't spin the globe too fast, or we'll all get dizzy!
