Just read about the Pensacola, Florida, obscenity case where the defense is hoping to use Google search stats to prove that more people check out porn on the web than is commonly acknowledged. The plan is to compare the number of searches for terms like "orgy" with terms like "apple pie." That's brilliant.
I went to the ever-fascinating — and now perhaps legally admissible — Google Trends and looked at the frequency of searches for "apple pie." And the graph is so regular from year to year, it looks just like an electrocardiogram! It's relatively quiet until a small, gradual spike in the fall, when apples come into season, a massive spike for Thanksgiving, and then another smaller spike for Christmas. No wonder they say, "as American as apple pie" – its consumption peaks wildly during our national holiday.
Then I Googled "orgy," which is the first time I have ever done such a thing. The activity is fairly regular, but there's a huge spike in early September of 2006. Any idea what that was all about? I Googled "September" and "2006" and "orgy" and couldn't find out anything, although the first hit contained the following sentence: "The bizarre circumstances in which Mr Chin became a quadriplegic — a fall during a 1999 sex orgy with a transsexual — were also aired in court."
I couldn't narrow down the search results more specifically than the state of Florida, and it's not clear whether the y axis is the same on both graphs, but it sure looks like the residents of the Sunshine State search for "orgy" much more than they search for "apple pie." I hope all those filthy pervs rot in jail.
