    "Stock" beats "sex" in keyword searches
    Okay, I had to post this Reuters article:

    "BEIJING (Reuters) - The names of three banks and the word "stocks" beat "sex" to become four of the most Googled words in China last year, according to a Google China list seen on Thursday.

    China Merchants Bank, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and China Construction Bank ranked second, third and sixth, according to a list supplied by Google China on its website (www.google.cn).

    "On the Chinese mainland, it was money and technology that took the honors last year," the China Daily said, pointing out that "sex" was the most popular keyword for Google users in some other countries."

    Apparently the world has changed since I was a lad. I mean, we had no "Google" then, as Al Gore had not yet invented the Internet.

    But we DID have money, stocks, and sex.

    I don't think the results would've been the same??

    It's refreshing to hear this. Most of us know all we need to know about sex, and very little about stocks - so hats off to the Chinese!! Besides, with their population, they're probably looking for a different past time!
