RTW -- Strange Google Searches

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week's Topic:
What is the strangest/weirdest thing you've ever researched?

This was a long one for me. I was almost surprised when I realized how many strange things I've researched over the years. I couldn't narrow it down to just one so here are some of the strangest things I've ever researched.
  • What would happen during a drug bust of a teen party
  • Damage caused by falling out a two-story window
  • French curse words
  • French nursery rhymes
  • Agoraphobia
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • How a girl can help a cast horse by herself
  • How long someone could be in a coma without significant damage
  • Whether or not smoking weed stains the walls
  • Whether a brand or tattoo would last longer
  • What would happen if the entire royal family died (of a make-believe nation)
  • Possibility of buying an island
  • What would happen if someone ate several poisonous insects
  • Pranks on a deserted island
  • Gasoline or gunpowder when lighting an entire building on fire
  • Can you still use matches after they've been soaked in seawater

Ha! These are so fascinating. Especially the one about eating poisonous insects! I don't even wanna discuss some of the stuff I've Googled! I always want to add the caveat: It's book research! I swear!

Imagine combining all of those into one WIP? Sounds terrifying. Hee.

Some of these are really interesting, like the matches in seawater. What's the answer?

Alison Miller said...

haha - I love MJ's suggestion of combining all these into one WIP. THAT would be interesting!

Foreign language profanity is always a worthwhile topic to look into.
