    "What is covfefe (we still don’t know the answer to this one)"

    He may have meant "confetti".
    As in "today's news is tomorrow's fish & chip paper."

    It says to me that 'people' have little regard for who they elect and the future of the planet in general. More about what feels good and what I need. What a sad lot we are.
    Hope 2018 is better but the lists above indicate otherwise. Glass half empty! I know.

    Notice the "Yes" movement for the gay rights is not mentioned. We were bombarded with comments.
    These stats are made up.

    Why do I think this is a furphy?
    I think Google has made an odd sort of statistical analysis here.
    No real estate, no porn, no music, no Facebook, no Netflix?
    Perhaps this isn't Google's report just the fidget spinner company trying to continue the dying craze.

    Can't see anything I Googled.! Maybe it was to rude to publicize.

    I didn't Google ANY of those things (and care even less about them). I guess that makes me unusual.

    I searched the Australian Amazon site ( it was rubbish).I hate watching sport so that was it.

    Tib with you 100% on that statement on sport, one of my pet HATES

    All I can say is what a boring lot we have on the planet -- if thats all they are interested in, there sure isn't anything there that I googled
