we all use wikipedia here for both our great researching and debunking activities.
with this now released tally, we can attempt to compare our data gathering topics with the rest of the world.

The data was published by a Swedish software engineer Johan Gunnarsson as part of the Wikitrends project.

BBC Article

Complete list

'Facebook' topped the English edition
while an entry for adult video actresses did best in Japan.
'Hua Shan' - a Chinese mountain featuring "the world's deadliest hiking trail" - topped the Dutch list.
cul-de-sacs were the German site's most clicked entry.

The Russian version was led by an article about the country followed by one about YouTube. But entries for "porn site" and "unemployment" may provide greater insight into local users' lives.

the complete list goes to the top 100 entries for each language wiki cover.

some intresting/ funny ones are sure to be found.
plus you might educate yourself.

for instance, in spanish, at the #4 spot was the word 'go'.
i thought that would be really dumb if someone did not know the meaning of that, so i clicked it [they're all linked] and found out it was a board game.
