If you look at school it follows the same pattern but is searched for a lot more. A lot of unrelated searches follow that pattern.

Anyways, i know a lot of people connected to suicide an i've created and Orkut and Facebook group to address the issue.

http://www.orkut.com/Community.aspx?cmm=33625417
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=12858795997

The group is called "Suicide | Self-harm | Depression – Awareness & Support" and i hope that you will consider joining. Far too many people are oblivious to how big of an issue this is and how many people around them are directly connected to it.

The purpose of the group is to be an open, supportive community to connect those affected by these issues and to raise awareness about them. It's time to erase the stigma attached to suicide, self-injury, and depression.

Here is more from the description: Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death in 15-to-24-year-olds in the US. Worldwide, more people take their own lives every year than are murdered, or killed in war; that's nearly 1,000,000 people who commit suicide. For every suicide there are 50-100 attempts.

Have you ever noticed that if you google "Jew History", you get a warning about "offensive" results

but if you type in Arab Gang Rape, you get nothing but the results.

Hmmmm ......
