Browser history (as it relates to illustration)

Just for fun.
What are some really bizarre topics/words that you have googled/searched for lately while looking for illustration ideas/references?
I was thinking about this tonight as I was googling "places where desolate people go" to get inspiration for an illustration I am working on. I sincerely hope no one ever looks through my browser history.
Any funny ads pop up because of recent web searches?
@Kayla-Groening Things I've typed today into Google Images:
- Boom box
- 1820s men clothing
- Pirate ship
- Conch shell
- Key West architecture
- Policeman hat
Most surprisingly is that apart from the policeman hat, these are all for the same project lol
I've searched a lot of innocuous things lately, but if I just pick out a select few, it looks kinda creepy:
I'm currently getting ads for Victorian style couches from a reference search.
Anyone else ever get traumatized from some of the images that popup on a seemingly innocent reference search? Yikes!

That's hilarious. Here's mine:
Fun! Mine are:
Map of the moon
Wouldn’t it be funny to see all of them together in one illustration!?

Recently caught myself typing in 'Children Bones' to aid my anatomy. Definitely made some NSA list for that one
@NessIllustration I'm interested to see how the boom box fits in with the other items in the project. It sounds like a fun one!
@TessaW such a creepy list...but tis the season. Victorian style couches...too funny!
@chrisaakins great list! I was curious about what would pop for the 1920's grandma, so I did a quick search myself. There's a lot of goodies in there.
@JennyJones It would be very funny to see them all illustrated together. You have quite an eclectic list. Is it for one project?
@SFischer Hahaha. I think you'd be in good company with other SVS'ers on that list.
@Kayla-Groening Not all for the same project, no. I have art ADD right now. But I am posting the reason for the pioneer clothing and hand holding soon. I’ve been working on a Little House in the Big Woods book cover. The others were for some kitchen jokes illustrated and kid jokes illustrated. I hope to put together a little joke book. There are so many “ pun-y” jokes out there! But I’m perpetually skater-brained as of late. Trying to get some discipline and focus.
@Kayla-Groening It's a project about the history of Key West, Florida It goes from conquistadors to the 80s, with a sense of humor haha
