Google has released its annual round-up of the year's top global searches. Instead of searching for the list, I thought I'd share it with you here.

From CNN:

In 2014, the entire world was sad about the passing of Robin Williams, excited to watch the World Cup and worried about Ebola. Those three topics top the list of global trending searches, which also includes missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, the viral phenomenon Ice Bucket Challenge, addictive smartphone gameFlappy Bird and Eurovision winner and drag queen Conchita Wurst.

 

Celebrity deaths tend to dominate Google's year-end lists. Last yearPaul Walker was the top trending topic after dying in a car accident, and Nelson Mandela and "Glee" actor Cory Monteith were in the top five. Google breaks out a special, sad category of "trending celebrity losses" to show the deceased celebrities we searched for most. Following Williams on this year's list were Joan RiversPhilip Seymour HoffmanMaya Angelou and Jan Hooks.

 

Most popular global searches for living people were Jennifer Lawrence and Kim Kardashian. French actress Julie Gayet was third on the list, likely because of allegations that she had an affair with French President Francois Hollande. Tracy Morgan's tragic car accident and Renee Zellweger's new look also stoked our curiosity.

 

In the United States, domestic abuse made NFL's Ray Rice a top searched for person, and NASCAR driver Tony Stewart was a top topic after he struck and killed fellow driver Kevin Ward Jr. during a race.

 

Funny, but I don't see "porn" on the list anywhere. According to some estimates, over 80% of searches are for some form of porn.
