Really odd that kamehn Schrader and Jorian Gardner are in the most searched list. Kamehn died in 2006 or 2007 … and how long is it since Jorian Gardner has been part of the Riotact community? It’s good to see that no pollies appear to have made the list!

7. allhomes narnia aslan

At first I was like, WTF. Then, after finding and reading the thread it relates too, I was like, “I remember this thread, funny, but why are so many people searching for it using the same terms?”.

Then I saw that a link to the google search for those terms was in the actual thread, kinda like a self fulfilling prophesy.
