Don't be that person. It's never a good look. You're not better than the zeitgeist, you're not above people who like popular things. You're not smarter than people who appreciate things you don't appreciate or look up things you have no interest in.

Still, I'd like to know what historic relevance and legacy Kim Kardashian or Nicki Minaj will have

You can't name any historical famous people who weren't world leaders or generals?

Um, that Nicki Minaj greatly influenced arguably the most popular genre of music in the US today?

That's false. If there's 2 groups of people, one spending their time focusing on XXXtentacion and sixnine, and the second on learning skills and educating themselves, the second group has greater worth.

It's a lie to say otherwise.

What a close-minded and unintelligent way of viewing things. People inherantly have less worth because they learn the wrong things to you...

How do you know people aren't devoting their time to both? If people don't give themselves a bit of free time, their 'education and learning' will burn them out.

When you say he/she is not smarter than people who like popular things, do you mean the smartest person in that group or the average person in that group? I'm pretty sure that average person who cares about Kim Kardashian isn't very smart, maybe average. I'm also pretty sure that average Jetpunk user is at least slightly above average. It is sad that Kim Kardashian is so high on the list..

No Italy or Spain, but Israel and Singapore? Really strange

But to be fair, Italy and Spain are not important topics like John Cena and Ariana Grande.

A lot more Israelis and Singaporeans are likely to be using English Wikipedia than Italians or Spaniards.

Level 56

Israel is in the news a lot more than Italy or Spain. I agree that the Singapore thing is kind of strange.
+13
Level 76
Jan 26, 2021
Perhaps it's because of Indians and other Asians thinking of working abroad and reading up on Singapore? Considering where India stands, Indians seem to make up a significant part of English Wikipedia users.
+1
Level 56
May 23, 2022
I think it's because Singapore is super advanced and people want to learn a lot about what such a well developed society is like. I've googled it maybe twice before and I spent like 10 minutes looking at one page about certain laws in the country because I think it's a very interesting place.

I expected "Potter" to be accepted as it's a surname. But I guess I was guessing for fictional character, not book franchise.

I find some of the omissions really surprising. As one example, considering all the TV shows up there, some are more famous than others, but ... no "Friends"?
+6
Level 66
Feb 24, 2020
Friends certainly remained popular well beyond its air time and I also tried it, but this only goes back to 2007. Searching for information on HIMYM probably only beats a show like Friends due to the date range.
+4
Level 16
Jul 5, 2021
It is totally subjective but it HIMYM beats friends in terms of quality also. Friends could beat it any day in terms of popularity but whatever anyone says it's references are getting old and the jokes don't seem funny anymore. If anyone thinks that friends is better and it is the show for them then I respect your opinion, I just wanted to put it out there because I watched both these shows recently.

This is random. The only place you would find most of the topics in one place -- Wikipedia search. Some of them are real head scratchers -- l why are that many people looking up these topics?
+9
Level 82
Feb 23, 2020
Looks like some combination of personal interest, travel planning, cross-referencing what's on the news, and grade school research papers.

Which obvious outlier had been omitted?
+3
Level 75
Feb 23, 2020
AMGTV, an American television company, which is pretty obscure.
+4
Level 82
Feb 23, 2020
I've never even heard of it before and I'm American. Very weird that it shows up.
+1
Level 79
Feb 24, 2020
Wow, I wouldn't say it's 'obvious'.

Level 69
Feb 25, 2020
@JackInTheBox, I think the creator means that it is obviously an outlier, not that it is obvious.
+1
Level 47
Jan 20, 2021
But why is it removed? It is still one of the most viewed articles.

I changed the description because it's no longer in the list

They probably just asked everyone who was watching at one point in time to look them up real quick.

+2
Level 74
Feb 25, 2021
Look up the wiki entries on each for elaboration :)
+4
Level 56
May 23, 2022
I think it's because if you google "sex" it shows the biological designation but people meant to look for "sexual intercourse".

Level 65
Feb 24, 2020
Having many singers and actresses left, I thought to try Anna Kendrick, although it was a long shot. However, once I got to Anna Ken it was accepted for Darth Vader.
+2
Level 68
Feb 24, 2020
Why is Anna Kendrick accepted as Darth Vader? A bit of a joke from QM?

"annaken" is probably a type in for Anakin, as in Anakin Skywalker AKA Darth Vader

Ah, I then tried her full name aswell (after seeing the comment above), and it accepts, but probably cause its reading the first half like you say.... Never seen a star wars so wasn't sure.

It's very weird to see Hitler ranked up so high.

If that were a race, he would have already overtaken CR7 and GoT and would be right behind XXX and M&M to take the top 10 position.

I hope it's Marshall's matter.

Of all the answers I don't know only one.

What is "Glee", is it worth seeing?
