I recently watched the documentary Terms and Conditions May Apply, which was about the lack of privacy online. One segment was about an apparent ability to track down what individuals have searched for on Google. The film crew tracked down one guy whose Google search results included things like "how to kill my wife", "cheating wife" and "decapitation"... seems fishy, right? Surprise, the guy was actually a writer for a crime drama, and did the searches for work.

So my question is, do you ever google really weird things for writing research? Anything that might seem suspicious to an outsider?

I can say I've googled a lot of injuries - knife and sword injuries, mainly, as well as effects of poisons. I think I even once googled home-made bombs, or historical explosives, or something like that, and even remember getting really paranoid that the FBI was going to get suspicious.
