Google Trends

I just found a tool, Google Trends, that tracks Google searches over time. Here is an example, searching for "Pope Benedict XVI" in April 2005. As he was elected on April 19th, there are no records before that time. But I challenge anyone to find an anomolous trend, which would seem otherwise impossible!

Please note the #1 city in the world that searched for "Pope Benedict XVI"—Saint Louis!

NOTE: I did find an anomaly: SBC and AT&T announced their merger on January 30th, 2005. The Google search trend started three days earlier!
