A VERY strange one:

http://www.google.com/trends?q=health%2C+porn&ctab=0&geo=US&date=2006-3

Play with dates and locations, the corrolation stays pretty much the same.

It seems like there are four cycles in a month (moon cycles ?) where we feel sick and look for love.

Of course, "he imagined" more than "he moaned"

It's not at all strange: it's called "the weekend". You can get a similar effect with health vs. movie, for example:

When I saw this in print over the weekend, I actually sent Gene a note – weingarten[put at-character here]washpost.com – saying funny column ... and if he didn't mind a nitpick, he should have used the word "results" rather than "hits" which I think is the more standard term for how many (uhhhh) results are displayed when you search for something in Google .... whereas hits usually refers to how many times something a particular file/graphic/etc. is accessed.

Note that his examples are quoted.in the Google search – that's why the numbers are so small.

Roger:

Oops, you're right :) I thought at a glance that graph was for a longer stretch of time. Yeah, my server logs look like the graph for health. Nevertheless it is funny to see the cycle that clearly
