Google’s annual end-of-the-year list of the most searched topics is a great way to take stalk of the year that was.
It can also be very depressing. Number one on this year’s list is Robin Williams, not because he released Mrs. Doubtfire 2 and it was the greatest movie ever, but because, well, you know. Below Williams was the World Cup, which was admittedly one of the year’s highlights and much needed breather amidst all the pain and suffering humans experience. Speaking of which, Ebola came in at number three, beleaguered Malaysia Airlines at number four, and then something called Flappy Bird at number five. Does anyone know what Flappy Bird is?
See the rest of the list below.
