Never heard of the guy.  Looks like he was born in my small town but grew up quite a ways away.

I did find out L Ron Hubbard was born in Tilden, NE.  I've driven through there many times.  I don't think they have a sign up mentioning that.

He covered the bad and the good, so the weather might be ugly.

William Patrick "Willy" Stuart-Houston (né Hitler; 12 March 1911 – 14 July 1987) was the Irish-German nephew of Adolf Hitler. He was born to Adolf's half-brother Alois Hitler Jr. and his Irish wife Bridget Dowling in Liverpool, England.

In Springfield, MO - 

1. Brad Pitt - raised here...went to Kickapoo High School.  His parents still live here and he has a younger brother that is a very successful business man as well.  Brad and Angelina were spotted around town a handful of times which usually raises a big stir.

2. Edwin Hubble, namesake of the Hubble Telescope - actually from Marshfield, MO which is 15 miles outside of Springfield.  They have a little billboard sign outside of town proclaiming this fact off of I-44.

I got Tom Cruise - Both of his parents are from my town & he attended my high school for a year or two when they briefly moved back.

 

I was hoping for George Clooney - another local, but ---  ☹️

Haven't seen them yet, if so.

Jim Gaffigan, lead singer of the strokes, actress who played Dexter's sister and a bunch I'm forgetting...and probably should Google just to boost their rating here.

Just found out through this link that a guy who graduated from my small CT highschool a year before me is a decently employed voice actor now, which I remember was always his dream. Pretty cool for him. Funny he's the most searched name attached to my town. Doesn't say much for that town I guess.

Hometown -- Jaime Pressly, hottie from "My Name is Earl".

She spent the night at my house once.  Unfortunately I was away at college.  She was a cheerleader with my sister and they had a sleepover thing.  Oh man that woulda been fun to be at.  :excited:

Where I live now -- Chrissy Teigen, hottie married to John Legend.  Her last name is actually really close to mine.   I don't think she lived here long.

Interesting idea.

I don't have the time to do it myself, but ...

What if we recruited a team of companions who all used a VPN to route their searches through one location?

Could we get this to be the most searched in a specific place?

If we targeted a small town it would be easier, but ... could we get NYC from Trump to that?

Also, could we write a program to perform a loop of searches on its own - and thus take our own time out of it?

 

 

Next - why would we want to do this? I dunno. It could be fun.

OK. I've been giving this some serious contemplation.

We can do it.

But ... I've decided that I want to change the search destination.

Sorry @Galileo - you inspired this, so I wanted to honor you, but I've decided to make the most searched Wikipedia Page in the entire world ...

This

PM me if you want to be a part of the companions. 🤪
