Google and What It Says About You

If you’re a fellow writer you know that if you ever get put on a list for anything (you know what I’m talking about) that whoever gets assigned to read your browser history is going to be very, very confused. For you non-writers out there, keep reading and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

So one of the books I’m currently working on is a murder mystery/thriller type story. So of course, my main character is trying to figure out the best weapons to keep with him and what regular items can be used as weapons. So far my Google searches have contained, ‘how to hog tie a human’, ‘homemade weapons’, ‘isolated wooded areas that get lots of snow’, ‘snacks that have a long shelf life’, ‘psychological torture and blackmail’, ‘how to disable a vehicle from starting’. You get the picture. There are some other searches that are lurking around, but if I tell you what they are it’s going to give something away, and I don’t want to do that.

So if you knew that someone was going to be looking at your history would they be shocked? Would they be bored? If you could have me use a couple things from your history what would they be? I’m always looking for a good murder weapon to work in while the main character is eating some snacks with an awesome shelf life.
