I’m Glad I’m a Girl, But Then Again…

Today, whilst wondering what the devil I ought to write about, I was looking through one of the many draft posts which litter this blog. The title sucked, so I won’t share it with you, but I’d written one sentence:

“A man gets killed by a biro in the Bourne Identity…”

That’s all I’d written. I may have been drunk. Maybe I was leading on to some sort of witty comment about the pen being mightier than the sword… who knows.

Anyway, I’ve never seen the Bourne Identity and I was wondering if some poor soul does indeed get killed by a biro in the film. I decided to hit up big G and see.

I began to type ‘man gets’ and got this:







Hmmm – unsavoury.

Kinda made me glad I was a girl… until I repeated the search replacing man with woman:







On balance, I think it’s marginally better to be a girl. There seems to be less in the way of violent death… but there’s not much in it.

Sometimes I forget how odd the interwebz are.

Update – I might have changed my mind. Today in America they got this Google Doodle:

It’s Sesame Street’s 40th Birthday. Which means Sesame Street is older than me… Which makes me feel younger – you can see where I’m going with this, right?
