Funny Google Predictions Quiz

Killer apples, pregnant men and bra wearing sons...


The world.
Find out how to save it with Google search.
One clever feature of Google Search is that Google learns from previous searches, and then uses this information to create its 'auto-complete' feature.  This means that when you start typing a search term, Google will offer predictive suggestions of what it thinks you're about to type.

For example, if you type 'How To Save The', Google will offer predictive suggestions such as:

How To Save The World
How To Save The Rainforest
How To Save The Environment

Most of the time the auto-complete predictions are quite logical.  However, on a few occasions they can be quite unexpectedly bizarre, so this week I've decided to highlight a few of these surprising Google suggestions in the form of a quiz.

In the examples below, see if you can guess which of the answers was the top suggestion suggested by Google's auto-complete feature.  To make things trickier, I've also included one or two made-up suggestions, but the vast majority of the suggestions are real predictions as suggested by Google.

You can find the answers at the bottom of the page, and the only clue I'll give you is that in some cases the suggestions aren't what you would expect, as illustrated by this first example...

1) My son's f...


a) My son's first bra
b) My son's friend is hitting on me
c) My son's first day at school
d) My son's fingers are peeling

What was the top Google suggestion?



Some people with allergies have to drink 'lack toast free milk'.
This next search highlights the prejudice that people with no toes have to face...

2) Lack to...


a) Lack toes intolerant
b) Lack toast and tolerant
c) Lactose intolerant
d) Lack toast free milk

What was the top Google suggestion?




According to the saying, 'Men are from Mars,' but wherever men are from, we're very weird indeed if this next search if anything to go by...

3) Can a man...


a) Can a man get pregnant?
b) Can a man lactate?
c) Can a man love two women?
d) Can a man buy a Justin Bieber album?

What was the top Google suggestion?



This next set of auto-complete suggestions includes some wise advice for anyone pondering on uses for a sock...

4) Never put...


a) Never put a sock in a toaster.
b) Never put salt in your eyes.
c) Never put your eggs in one basket.
d) Never put ketchup on a hot dog 

What was the top Google suggestion?



Finally, any dog owners should be on the lookout for dangerous killer apples spotted roaming the area...

Killer apples?

5) Do apples k...


a) Do apples kill dogs
b) Do apples keep you awake
c) Do apples keep longer in the fridge
d) Do apples kiss oranges to make baby tangerines

What was the top Google suggestion?

Scroll down the page for the answers...
















N.B. Google's predictive suggestions vary from time to time, and I did most of the research for this post a few months ago, so if you do the above searches now you may get different results.  However, all of the following top suggestions were accurate at the time I carried out the searches.

1) My son's f...


a) My son's first bra
b) My son's friend is hitting on me
c) My son's first day at school.
d) My son's fingers are peeling

All of the above suggestions were genuine predictions by Google, but the top suggestion was:

My son's fingers are peeling.



Toast.

2) Lack to...


a) Lack toes intolerant
b) Lack toast and tolerant
c) Lactose intolerant
d) Lack toast free milk

I suspect this search was a misunderstanding of the phrase 'lactose intolerant', as the top Google suggestion was:

Lack toast and tolerant.



3) Can a man...


a) Can a man get pregnant?
b) Can a man lactate?
c) Can a man love two women?
d) Can a man buy a One Direction album?

'Can a man get pregnant?' is a Google search I've covered before on the Charles Fudgemuffin blog, so despite its absurdity, I wasn't overly surprised to learn that the top Google search was:

Can a man get pregnant?




"Never put ketchup on a hot dog."
An opinion not endorsed by Charles Fudemuffin.

4) Never put...


a) Never put a sock in a toaster.
b) Never put salt in your eyes.
c) Never put your eggs in one basket.
d) Never put ketchup on a hot dog

'Never put a sock in a toaster' is wise advice, as is 'never put salt in your eyes', and yet surprisingly, Google's top suggestion was:

Never put ketchup on a hot dog




5) Do apples k...


a) Do apples kill dogs
b) Do apples keep you awake
c) Do apples keep longer in the fridge
d) Do apples kiss oranges to make baby tangerines

Some strange suggestions in this last batch, but the top Google suggestion was:

Do apples keep you awake
