To worry about my internet history?

I've just clicked through from an article about the new Neil Gaiman book, to the film Aristocrats, to a website about the joke 'the Aristocrats' (gross) to a wiki page on infanticide.

I swear to god if anyone close to me is murdered I am fucked.

Is it just me?

Probably confused

I like to Google dangerous countries and see what the travel advice is hmm so today I've looked at Mogadishu.

I was recently an avid reader of the MN Blind Gossip threads and had to google all sorts of weird and wonderful stuff to try and break the code names. My internet history is now a disgrace!

EssieTregowan Mon 13-Feb-17 21:29:47

Honestly I end up being randomly directed to all sorts of dodge.

I am quite interested in crime stuff so I probably have a search history full of serial killers and stuff.

You read about people being done for murder based on their google search for 'ways to hide a body'. That'll be me.

I do nowt but read about serial killers so I wouldn't worry.

As someone once said to me, your internet search history represents all your innermost hopes, fears, fantasies, obsessions and delusions so YANBU.

My history could get me arrested. I google things to win arguments so a lot of weird questions.

emma2468 Mon 13-Feb-17 21:36:05

I'm fascinated by serial killers so god help me too!

An Internet history is like a digital id. Freud would love it.

Remember when mine was full of dogging websites after a rather illuminating MN thread on the subject. And another time, the gentlemen4hire site.

hungryhippo90 Mon 13-Feb-17 21:44:34

Gentlemen4hire..... sounds interesting!
🙉🐵🙈 I am curious. I have to go and see.

I think most people nowadays would be worried if the police saw their search history. I've made some downright odd searches! I can't think of anything particularly interesting at the moment, but I do often catch myself thinking, irs a bit odd I'm googling this!

This is me too.
I think I would be arrested. The worst times have been when the sex topics popup. I have to google to know what they mean.
The blind gossip thread. That's not too bad.
The worst one is when a conspiracy thread pops up.

grin You'd be fine.

I'm writing a book about (amongst other things) lesbian dildo-usage in the fifteenth century. You can imagine what I've clicked on by accident. Luckily, my workplace is very understanding.

DoloresVanCartier Mon 13-Feb-17 21:56:02

Mine is full of serial killers, unsolved murders etc. I'm knackered I think!!

travellinglighter Mon 13-Feb-17 21:58:44

Every time there is an atrocity then I have a hugely curious urge to figure out how they do it. I have resisted the urge to google fertiliser bombs, IED construction and terrorist handbook so that I don’t kidnapped and transferred to a CIA black site by mercenaries.

LotsOfAxolotlsAndOcelots Mon 13-Feb-17 22:04:20

Don't go Googling pink sock, blue waffle or dragon butter like I did back then peeps grin

travellinglighter Mon 13-Feb-17 22:05:07

And now I have the gentlemen4hire on my internet history just because I was wondering what the going rate for selling my body is. Nothing is what I’m guessing however the website seems to have gone.

Sparklingbrook Mon 13-Feb-17 22:06:36

I delete my browsing history a lot. grin I fear one day my laptop might die without warning (it's 3 months old so unlikely) but I don't want IT man seeing my sad 80s internet adventures or all the websites of cats. [blush}

ProudBadMum Mon 13-Feb-17 22:06:47

I wondered that before traveling I did google escort price lists

Sparklingbrook Mon 13-Feb-17 22:06:56

blush even

missmoohoo Mon 13-Feb-17 22:08:34

@Traveler you hit a nail on the head with murders. I read every thing to do with a murder case to try and solve it.
Every gossip going I will be on to it. I haven't done any digging on information for this year yet. Am waiting for an intriguing one. There is always one. No offence!
I keep truck of old ones too, to see how they have developed.

BathshebaDarkstone Mon 13-Feb-17 22:09:50

You do know Axalotls I'm going to have to Google those now. grin

NeverGoOutOfStyle Mon 13-Feb-17 22:11:40

@Iusedtobedontcall I do that too!

My internet history is such a weird amount of unrelated stuff. I assume if DP is murdered and they look through it, I'll be okay though.

RhodaBorrocks Mon 13-Feb-17 22:14:47

Mines full of serial killers, conspiracy theories and penguin bollards, guess I'm going away for a long time if it ever sees the light of day!

Spudlet Mon 13-Feb-17 22:15:19

I fell down a YouTube rabbit hole of videos of wellies being made blush. Should I come to an abrupt end any time soon, I shall be marked out as a boot fetishist.

There's just something very relaxing about it, I found blush
