Top Google Searches of 2018

With the year now coming to the end of its timespan, it’s time to start looking back on 2018. It has been quite the interesting year, with a hell of a lot of change. The world, though, feels very much on the precipice of massive, lasting change. If you ever look around the world that you live in and wonder why it’s changing so much, it all comes down to the way that we manage our search and pursuit of knowledge. For example, more people are online than ever – and more people are inputting Google searches than ever.

What, then, were some of the most significant and commonly searched topics of the last year?

Meghan Markle

One of the most commonly searched terms in 2018 was that of the newest addition to the Royal Family of Britain in Meghan Markle. The American married Prince Harry on May 19th, and it produced a huge amount of commentary – good and bad –across the world.

She’s a very interesting person, and the searches showed everyone wanted to know more about the newest member of the Royals – and Google seen many questions asked on her behalf.

Kate Spade

The fashion designer was one of the most commonly searched for names in 2018. Sadly, much of the searching into her came through her tragic suicide on June 5th. People wanted to read into her story and to find out why such an amazing and talented person had found themselves in such a situation.

Spade was a massive loss to the world for many reasons, but she was easily among the most commonly searched names on 2018 alongside.

Brett Kavanaugh

The world has watched the United States turn into a massive version of The Jeremy Kyle show. It’s a shame to see a nation with so much rich potential essentially turning into car crash TV, but the name of Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh has become very much a common search on the web with good reason

He was confirmed in September, amid massive controversy that he seemingly sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford when he was in High School. Naturally, searches exploded to find out the truth – or at least one version of it.

Hurricane Florence

Natural disasters often bring up a lot of discussion, and with good reason. When the massive Hurricane Florence – alongside Hurricane Michael – hit, there was a lot of Google searches. People looking for information about how to stay safe and how to avoid any kind of danger. It’s not something that you want to see trending, but it was a major part of disaster relief efforts for many.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup

Sporting events often draw attention from across the globe, and the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia was no different. From team profiles to match-ups and predictions, the internet was alight with people reading into the teams, players, managers, stadiums and cities that held one of the most exciting sporting events in years.

Netflix has scheduled four amazing Christmas movies for you this holiday. These picks are nice, and they will be helpful if you find it hard to make a choice like I sometimes do.

I am sure movie producers find it hard to make Christmas classics because of the high expectations. While some of the Christmas movies have been a hit in the box office, others were forgotten after a while. However, these storylines may be adapted many years later and remade into new movies.

The Christmas movies are also not so serious. The scenes are somewhat comedic, which can make the viewers laugh and have a great time. They can also be used to set the mood during holiday parties. While Netflix has made this move to give its subscribers awesome Christmas movie options this season, the selection has been made to feature movies many people may not be willing to pay and watch at the cinemas.

We all have that special movie that we can watch many times, but others don’t seem to think they are good movies. These movies appeal to a particular audience; they are referred to as cult classics. The name used to categorize these movies comes from the fact the few people who like such movies are die-hard fans who form social media groups and have a great time discussing the movies.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

The movie is about commitment and the celebrity lifestyle. “Ingrid Goes West” was released in 2017; it is about Ingrid, a role played by Aubrey Plaza, who moves to Los Angeles to be closer to her ‘assumed’ friend Taylor and Instagram influencer. Elizabeth Olsen plays the role of Taylor, and over time she becomes friends with Ingrid. On a different level, this film is an entertaining drama.

The Nice Guys

Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe team up in this 19970s movie to search for a missing girl in Los Angeles. It wasn’t a big box office hit, but there are fans that were are thrilled by the detective and action scenes in this movie. It was written and directed by Shane Black, a popular name in Hollywood.

2018 Largest Ships On The Seas

While we don’t quite use sea travel to the extent of our ancestors, traveling via water is still pretty damn popular. Many people love to go to the sea because it allows a sense of liberation from the laws of the land. That being said, you might also suffer from problems with finding a ship of the right size to fit your ambitions. If you want some help in finding some of the biggest ships in the world, then here are some of the largest vessels still sailing the seven seas today.

CMA CGM Von Humboldt

The CMA CGM Alexander von Humboldt, to be exact. This stunning explorer ship was built and named after the famous Alexander von Humboldt himself. This amazing ship was scheduled to be delivered in 201,3, and is capable of delivering an impressive speed of 20 knots despite being a dead weight of a whopping 187,624 tons.

It’s a huge ship, but it’s not the biggest on this latest – despite managing to reach a whopping 396m in size.

Emma Maersk

Just a touch more impressive in terms of size is the stunning Emma Maersk. This gigantic cruise ship is among the most popular on the planet, and has long stood the test of time as a hugely impressive E-class ship. It’s been around for over a decade, having been manufactured in 2006. Since then, it has become a very impressive part of the world of nautical development, with it at one stage being the largest ship ever created. Indeed, it was able to carry as many as 11,000 units at 20ft in size – each!

Esso Atlantic

At a whopping 406m in size, the Esso Atlantic is one of the leaders on this important list of stunning boats. Despite launching more than 40 years ago, in 1977, it was a hugely impressive cruise ship for the era.

Indeed, its impressive dead weight of 516,891 tons becomes even more impressive when you consider that it can hit top speeds of a whopping 15.6 knots. It’s a massive oil transfer tanker that has served as one of the most valuable ships to sail the seas for many a year.

Seawise Giant

The stunning Seawise Giant is, at 458m in length, the second largest ship that we could find. This amazing cruise ship was later known by other names like Knock Nevis and Mont, was a stunning ULCC supertanker. It held the distinction of having the greatest deadweight tonnage ever seen, with a whopping 657,019 tons making it the heaviest ship of any kind ever built at the time.

Given it could hit speeds of 16 knots, though, you would never know!

Prelude FLNG

This is the largest ship we could find still cutting around in 2018. With over 600,000 tons of displacement and with over 260,000 tons of steel, this is a hugely impressive model aircraft. Ships like this often stand out as they produce a stunning platform for everything from liquefied natural gas platforms to working offshore.

At 488m in length, you can be almost certain that this stunning ship is one of the largest ever to be produced.

Is The Book Always Better Than The Movie? Maybe Not

“Ach, what’s the point in seeing it? The book is always better than the movie!”

While this might be a common refrain for any book-to-movie adaption it’s not always the case. Sometimes, a theme and idea can only be explained well when it’s put into an immediate visual format. Books need a certain understanding of the ideas being discussed to truly get it. for that reason, sometimes the movie can win out over the book.

“Like when!?” I hear you ask. Well, let me explain. Here are some examples of times when the movie might actually outstrip the written version.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

Having seen the movie ahead of reading the book, I maybe done this in the wrong order. However, I feel like the movie putting a bit more of a spotlight on McMurphy is important, not least because it allows Jack Nicholson to be at his most outrageous best.

It’s a cracking movie, and the book is still good. I do like the alteration of the angle and dynamic, though, as it does make the perspective more on McMurphy than with Chief.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

While many find that the works of J.K. Rowling work as well on the page as they do the screen, I preferred the screen version of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I just found that there was more to it, especially the fact that the movie fleshes out the kind of lack of proper storyline in the original book.

This makes it a bit more of a story than just an additional piece of lore for the Harry Potter universe. It’s very interesting to see some of the famous HP stuff taken on by new characters and locations.

Gone Girl

A controversial one for some, but I think the Gone Girl movie released in 2014 is better than the original novel by Gillian Flynn. The novel is a fine work, but I felt there was more of a race and a pulse setting fear to the movie.

The screen version just adds a bit more to guess and try to work out and around, which always makes it a bit more intriguing in the thriller industry. For me, at least.

To Kill A Mockingbird

As one of the first ‘great’ books I ever read, the book will always hold a place in my heart. However, I feel like the screen adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird might just trump the book. The 1962 film is a wonderful take on the book as it covers it in such a tough, visceral fashion.

The empathy and the power of the story is felt so incredibly well in the movie adaption. It’s a tremendous take on a brilliant book, and might just win over thanks to the amazing works of the likes of Gregory Peck.

There are some other good options out there that you might prefer ahead of the book – what do you think? What would you rather watch than read?

The Loudest Rock Concerts Ever Recorded

When you leave a music concert or a gig, you can often like you have just your ears filled with paper. The ringing noise in your ears sticks around for a long time, as does the necessity to go “WHAT?” to just about anyone you speak to. Even going to see someone quite harmonic and relaxing can leave your ears in a bit of a tiff. So, going to see a major rock band at a big venue is only going to exasperate those scenarios.

However, regardless of how bad your ears have been, you will find that it pales in comparison to what would have happened if you were present at any of the following rock concerts. These are recorded as among the loudest in history.

Sleazy Joe, 2008

Their show that was held over at Hassleholm, and it managed to produce a ridiculous 143.2 decibels of noise. That’s a hell of a lot of noise, and shows you just how far the group were going on this performance.

Touted as the ‘loudest band in the world’, it’s fair to say that Sleazy Joe done a pretty damn good job of making that come true in their ’08 show in Sweden.

AC/DC, 1980

Known for being able to hit the heights on a good night, AC/DC managed an impressive 130 decibels during their Back in Black tour back in the 1980s. Years of hitting the high notes will have had an impact on the band with singer Brian Johnson having to reschedule shows in 2016 or risk the loss of his hearing entirely!

Indeed, back in the day they were told that they were ‘too loud’ by promoters and were asked to turn down the volume a touch: pfft!

The Who, 1976

While we might not really associate The Who with being a ‘loud’ band, they managed to make an impressive 126 decibels of noise during one of their London shows in 1976. They were playing at the Valley Stadium, and managed to make plenty of noise.

It was at one stage the highest performing concert in history, so much so that the Guinness Book of World Records awarded them for their noisiness until it was later broken.

Leftfield, 1996

Among the loudest that we could find, though, comes courtesy of the incredible Leftfield. They done a show over at the Brixton Academy, and managed to hit a stupendous 137 decibels. That’s damn impressive, and has become part of their show experience: loud to the point where they are warned by their promotional teams.

Legal limits mean that breaking these kind of sound levels is very unlikely. However, while it would be nice to go even a bit higher again, the 140-odd decibel level sounds more than loud enough for most gigs!

Whatever kind of rock music you like, you’ll find that some of these concerts are the kind of gig that you would like to spend your night, even if your ears would feel like they have gone through a workout!

A must-use for anyone who wants to add that supernatural charm to their playlist without having to go down a screamer-style music playlist.

Ghostbusters

An obvious one for fans of the movie, if you want to get everyone up dancing and having a good time then the Ghostbusters theme by Ray Parker Jr. is just what you need. It was hot as hell back on release in 1984, and this is still an absolute banger to this day: 100% a must-have with any good Halloween playlist.

Highway to Hell

The AC/DC classic is a definite one to add to your Halloween play-list this year. It was first released in the late 1970s, and was a major hit for them for obvious reasons.

Don’t Fear the Reaper

A fine choice of a Halloween song, this tune by the Blue Oyster Cult was a hit since it first appeared in the mid-70s. A classic for many reasons, it’s a good song that you should definitely look to add to the playlist. It might not sound like the scariest song, but a quick listen to the lyrics will quickly confirm that this is more than a mid-tempo classic that sounds good to relax to: it’s got ample fear in those lyrics.

Deal With The Devil

We have a lot of classics in this list so here’s a recent entry to the list — Pop Evil’s chugging, hard rock single “Deal With the Devil.” Coming from the band’s 2013 set Onyx, it topped Mainstream Rock Songs and peaked at No. 20 in Rock Airplay.

Movie-Inspired Rides That Have Been Shut Down

We are going to miss these theme park rides. For many years, they have been the most exciting features in the parks. Having a nice ride in the theme parks for your favorite movies is like acting a role in the movies. There was such huge patronage for these parks, so it is surprising that the owners decided to shut them down. So here are the theme parks we discovered have been closed permanently. So sad…

Ghostbusters Spooktacular

We all loved the movie, and it was a thrill to have an adventure at the Spooktacular Show where the ‘ghoulish’ creatures threatened to topple your ride. The theme ride represented the Sci-Fi movie with popular characters such as the Marshmallow man popping out to scare the visitors. Over the years some modifications were done to include the character played by Ricky Moranis. However, the show has been shut down, leaving behind only the memories of the good times.

Twister… Ride It Out!

You must remember the movie Twister, it was one of the best movies of 1996. We expected some sequels to add new twists to the story, but nothing was produced in the years that followed. The show developed with this theme was spectacular. The visitors were made to experience astonishing effects of a tornado while standing on a platform; it was so real. Unfortunately, this park was shut down in 2015. Now you can find the Jimmy Fallon ride in its place, it is good, but we miss the ‘Ride it Out’ experience.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Submarine Voyage

In 1954, the 20,000 Leagues ‘Under The Sea’ movie was the inspiration behind the Starboard Ride which featured a high-resolution viewing. It was opened in 1994, and the visitors were thrilled. The ride took the guests through the adventures of Captain Nemo and his band of tourists as they journeyed under the sea for 23 years. Such an adventure but not to be experienced again.

Kongfrontation

King Kong was an awesome hit in the theatres. The Universal Studios had to recreate an amazing adventure at the Florida Island of Adventure. Visitors could have a first-hand experience of the Skull Island. The show was called- The Reign of Kong. It was a spectacular ride; the Kongfrontation experience featured the King Kong in the 1976 movie. Visitors went on a ride on a tram through the Island to escape the angry Kong. Such a thrilling experience. The show was closed in 2002; now visitors can experience the mummy themed ride based on the movie “The Mummy.”

Drop Zone: Stunt Tower

Paramount pictures joined in on the theme park business by developing their themed ride based on the Wesley Snipes movie the drop zone. The ride was successful with so many tourists queuing up for the experience. The Drop Zone theme ride was set-up to compete with the themed rides developed by Disney and Universal Pictures. However, Paramount pictures shifted its focus away from managing theme rides, and the show was closed.

Star Tours

The Star Tours was based on the Star Wars 1977 movie adaptation. The location of Star Tours was in Florida, Paris, California, and Japan. The ride has now been upgraded to feature the newer Star Wars stimulation with an added attraction where 3PO, R2, and D2 are the hosts. There is also a new robot pilot representing RX 24 also called Rex.

Hurler

The theme parked styled after Wayne’s World is one of the parks funded by Paramount Pictures. The comedy themed show included the puking and hurling experience the audience saw on the show. However, Wayne’s World part of the show was canceled in 2000 when the parks where sold.

There are 5 more including Back to The Future and more:

Infamous: I Sold My Photo to a Stock Site – Now I’m The Face of Bestiality

We often take our photos and get our photos taken by someone else whether they be our friends or professional photographers. The manifest goal is to capture the beauty but what is the latent goal of those who are greedy? Some pictures end up in places we have never thought of such as newspaper ads.

There is no payment done to use the pictures they just take the picture from the internet and use it for free. Very unethical indeed.

Considering the usage of stock images, a twitter thread went viral where models shared how their pictures have been used for advertisement. Once @marleybennett found himself on a tobacco label. The models have shared where their pictures ended up.

My innocent dog selfie ended up on a bestiality article

A 36 years old manager named Yair Kivaiko took a photo with his parent’s dog and sold it to a stock site to make some extra cash. Little did he know the picture would be used up in a bestiality article? “I was mortified when I saw it on an article about bestiality”, Says Kivaiko. He further told it took him much time to clear his friends and family, he didn’t want to be remembered as “that guy”

He further added, “I could have done without the bestiality story, but it was a minor website and luckily the article is no longer available online so there’s no real harm done. I wasn’t sure how to react at first, but today I look at it as a funny turn of events and laugh about it”.

I was the poster boy for a severe penis problem in Venezuela

A Spanish writer called Niccolò Massariello told how his photos were used for ads of milk, brooze, Catholic Church and a horrifying penis condition called paraphimosis.

“As I was getting up one morning a friend from Venezuela asked me on WhatsApp if I had — or had ever had — paraphimosis, a very serious penis issue,” he said.

“I told my friend that I might have had some issues down there in the past, but that I don’t remember it being called that.”

The friend then told him that he was “the poster boy for paraphimosis in Venezuela.”

After his breakup, to cool off he took some photos with a friend and sold them to a stock website and later found out those photos on an article about terrorists on a Catholic website. “That in itself wasn’t so bad, but it was then that I realized I had no control over what might happen to my face,”

I was the women who loved sex with fat, ugly old men

Samantha ovens is a model and her photos were used in an unpleasant way. Once ovens was with her friends, she found out that she is on an article “I fantasize about group sex with old, obese men,” on the Guardian’s anonymous sex column.  Samantha’s picture was next to a line that said, “The thing that really turns me on is the idea of having to lift their stomachs and search for their penises, which are always difficult to find and a bit on the soft side,”

Actually, ovens is gay, so this came as a shock to her. But her reaction wasn’t really serious, she took it in a pleasant way and said, “How can you take it seriously? There are bigger things in this life to get concerned about.”

The family fronting the anti-gay marriage campaign

Irish people used a British family’s photo in an anti-gay marriage campaign. The family was given a free photo shoot but at the expense that the photographer can sell those photos. The family comments on this by saying, “The photo was not stolen from us… we have no claim over (or rights to) the picture and we do not claim otherwise”. The family is just not happy because they do not support that campaign.

Selfie Backlash: Look Around Before You Take That Shot

When we’re about to hit the Snap button on our phones, we often take forever to get the angle, the balance and the camera lighting just right. What people often forget once they throw up that selfie is that no matter how good you look or how much you are showing off, the background still matters a great deal.

It’s not uncommon to throw up a selfie, expecting everyone to be like “wow” etc. – but when the comedy comments roll in, you don’t quite get why.

What are they laughing at!?

There’s a big chance that they are laughing at your background! Want proof? Here are some shots of hilarious examples of people who maybe took the selfie snap before analyzing where they took it.

Clean Your Room.

A certain ‘expert’ is really making the news at the moment for his self-help stuff, helping people to get into the act of cleaning their room. It would appear that this girl should maybe listen to some of his ideas. Looking dazzling in every other way, her room – which appears to resemble an explosion scene such is the mess – somewhat takes away from the overall effect of the shot.

When you see him…

We certainly hope that she knows that eyeball sticking out from behind the shower curtain. If she didn’t know him then, uh, that might make the photo a touch scarier. That being said, we doubt it would get uploaded…unless she never noticed.

Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall…

When you want to show everyone how nice you look before or on a night out, try and do it after you’ve done your business on the loo. The mirror gives it away, my friend. We can clearly see a bit more than you intended with this shot – unless she’s exceptionally open about her bathroom habits!

Three’s a Crowd.

When you take a snap with your partner, the last thing you want is Mr or Ms. Third Wheel being there all the time. When this couple took this shot, we dare say they wanted a touch of privacy in the shot. With the invader peeking in-between their shoulders, it’s a comical shot that kind of sums up, in a way, why he’s the third wheel…personal space, man!

You’ve Been Caught.

Ever come across those people who make up ridiculous scenarios to try and get likes and stuff on social media? Yeah, this guy. Mate, we can see your feet holding up the bloody tablet – so much for your girlfriend taking the snap, huh? I don’t even know how this one would make it online. Surely your brain would do the sums for you and tell you that you’ll get caught out?

B-E-S-T Knock Offs Ever

When you go shopping online on certain sites or in particular parts of the world, knockoffs are very common. Some knockoffs are great – some are even better than the original. Most, though, are a minor percentage of the original product for a good reason!

In this article, we’ll take a quick and comical tour of some of the silliest and stupendous knockoff content that we’ve seen on stores across the world. Some of these are outrageously cheap – they aren’t even trying to keep the realism intact. So, who’s the worst offender here?

Barrack O-Jedi.

What the…? Apparently, the former President of the United States played Mace Windu? I seem to have missed that. Nevermind the fact that his ‘light saber’ is a touch more phallic than one might expect…. it’s the f*cking ex-POTUS!

ALAN

Did you know that in space, nobody can hear you in space (Written in Arial size 12)? It’s a very comical t-shirt that can be understood only by those who know the movie and understand that it’s not named ALAN. But it would make a great gift for someone called Alan who’s fond of low-rent garbage.

Find Fred?

It’s obviously supposed to be our good friend Mr. Kruger, but it looks more like Where’s Wally got a little sick of waiting for your finger to point him out. The whole loincloth-groin, a classic of the knockoff genre, just makes him look even more ridiculous (if his baseball glove-turned-scissor hand didn’t already do so).

Fony PlayStation.

Probably the best of the lot; at least it’s obvious that it’s just a pack of made-up rubbish.

Lip Balms from Hell.

Yeah, I sure do love me the taste of *looks at label* Fnata. The taste of Spitre on the lips truly is a sensation, right? But the best taste is surly Caili Cola, isn’t it? For some reason, I doubt these are actually very good for our lips – or taste anything like the ‘real’ thing.

Movies for Drunk Kids.

Has your kid come home raving about Kung Fu Panda or Happy Feet? Disappoint them in equal measure with what we’re sure are some of the most comical rip-offs in the movie industry that we’ve seen.

The Luxury and Sports Cars of Favorite Celebrities

Celebrities love spending money. Well, they deserve it. We get to enjoy the stuff they decide to buy with their money, so it’s a win-win situation.

Some of these cars are amazing collectible vintage cars, while others are incredible sports cars that need only to sit in our garage in order for us to enjoy. Take the full tour with these outrageously expensive cars and see which celebrity owns them.

1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II

This convertible was first introduced in 1959, and is a highly-prized vintage luxury car. Production was limited, since the Silver Cloud was intended to replace the Silver Dawn.

Upon arrival, the car boasted a 6.2 liter V8 engine, and could reach a top speed of 107 mph, a big feat back in those days.

A total of 2,417 were sold during the car’s production run, and it was the car for 60’s celebrities like Elvis, John Lennon and others to own.

Car Owner: Beyonce

Jay Z gives as good as he gets when it comes to cars. He gifted Beyonce with a $1 million 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II Convertible for her 25th birthday, and it’s one of the hottest cars you’ll ever see.

The vehicle features a blue leather interior while the facade is sky blue, and tires are wide white walls. Beyonce loves the color blue — after all, their daughter’s name is Blue Ivy — so this car was made for her. It’s fast too, going 0 to 60 mph in just 10.9 seconds.
