Google’s autocomplete

I don’t know how Google’s autocomplete works, but it’s not really helping calm nerves at this time. Are these based on real searches by real people?

Just for comparison:

I also don’t know if they tailor those results to my current location.

Actually, Australia is wider than the moon, but I’m not sure who would ask about which two hemispheres (of Earth) Australia is located in, unless it’s the southern and eastern hemispheres.

  1. Yes, they are based on real searches, with the list curated to remove offensive searches like ‘why are all XXXX so stupid’, for example.
