Let Them Eat Cake

It probably won't come as a surprise, but Joakim Noah is clearly more popular in France. For those of you unfamiliar with "Google Trends", let me introduce you.

Defined by Wikipedia: "Google Trends charts how often a particular search term is entered relative the total search volume across various regions of the world, and in various languages."

Now, let's try "Joakim Noah." Although he may have many enemies here in the States, it appears that the French have his back. And as the well read historian will tell you, that's never a bad thing.

Now to more interesting searches:

-"Girl"- Amazingly, the word "Girl" is searched more in Iran than any other Country. Hmmm...

-The '08 Election- Comparing the current top four candidates...If Google is any indication, we could have a black President.

-"Paris Hilton"- Think you've heard alot about her recently? Look at the popularity in February '05. I wonder what happened then?

Also note that the item being searched needs to be popular enough to register with Google Trends. Unfortunately, "Sports Indeed" has not yet made the cut, stay tuned...

Interesting that you mention both "Noah" and "Girl" for the searches...since they're one in the same.
