I just set up a computer for my 7-yr old daughter, installed parent monitor etc. On to google, safe search is on, I was on it doing a search for 'how to find' – go try it now, just get as far as the 'f' in that phrase and see what it shows, and this is a 'safe search'!

In fact the full list of suggestions for the whole alphabet is quite interesting, as in
"how to a"
"how to b"
   – here is what google suggests for all 26 letters, it seems to show an unhealthy interest in geekdom (hacking facebook and iphones), inexperience with girls alongside more wholesome pursuits like roasting chestnuts and carving pumpkins.

how to ask a girl out
how to bleed a radiator
how to carve a pumpkin
how to draw
how to enable cookies
how to finger your girlfriend
how to get pregnant
how to have sex (2nd is how to hack facebook)
how to install windows 7
how to jailbreak ipod touch
how to kiss
how to lose weight fast
how to make money
how to network
how to open rar files
how to play poker
how to quit smoking
how to roast chestnuts
how to solve a rubix cube
how to tie a bow tie
how to unlock a phone
how to view private facebook profiles
how to write a cv
how to xray in photoshop
how to yodel
how to zip a file

The fourth one for 'S' was 'how to shave pubic hair'. Very definitely a loose interpretation of safe content. [PersonRank 0]

I was also confused what on earth is up with pumpkin seeds
Did it mean someone need to eat dry seeds?
