No Italy or Spain, but Israel and Singapore? Really strange

But to be fair, Italy and Spain are not important topics like John Cena and Ariana Grande.

Level 72

A lot more Israelis and Singaporeans are likely to be using English Wikipedia than Italians or Spaniards.

Israel is in the news a lot more than Italy or Spain. I agree that the Singapore thing is kind of strange.

Needs more time. Without thinking about answers I only managed to get through 75% of the list. Given that the answers vary over a wide spectrum of topics and years there should me more thinking time.

I expected "Potter" to be accepted as it's a surname. But I guess I was guessing for fictional character, not book franchise.

Thanks, fixed. I've recently switched from Chrome to Firefox. While Firefox is equivalent or better in most ways, Chrome has a much better spellchecker.

I find some of the omissions really surprising. As one example, considering all the TV shows up there, some are more famous than others, but ... no "Friends"?
+1
Level 60
Feb 24, 2020
Friends certainly remained popular well beyond its air time and I also tried it, but this only goes back to 2007. Searching for information on HIMYM probably only beats a show like Friends due to the date range.

This is random. The only place you would find most of the topics in one place -- Wikipedia search. Some of them are real head scratchers -- l why are that many people looking up these topics?

Looks like some combination of personal interest, travel planning, cross-referencing what's on the news, and grade school research papers.

I guess global warming is an atmospheric phenomenon, but I think that climate phenomenon would be more appropriate. I tried endless meteorological phenomenon, wondering if tornadoes, hurricanes, or lightning would be the most popular to search for.

AMGTV, an American television company, which is pretty obscure.

@JackInTheBox, I think the creator means that it is obviously an outlier, not that it is obvious.

Having many singers and actresses left, I thought to try Anna Kendrick, although it was a long shot. However, once I got to Anna Ken it was accepted for Darth Vader.

Level 58

Why is Anna Kendrick accepted as Darth Vader? A bit of a joke from QM?

"annaken" is probably a type in for Anakin, as in Anakin Skywalker AKA Darth Vader

Ah, I then tried her full name aswell (after seeing the comment above), and it accepts, but probably cause its reading the first half like you say.... Never seen a star wars so wasn't sure.

Yeah the Type-In was something like "An+[aei]k[aei]+n"

I realize there are many countries that had civil wars but since this is an American site I was surprised that civil war didn't count.
