15. Your own name
Sure, if you’ve been particularly diligent with your online footprint over the past decade or so, you might not find anything too embarrassing when you Google your own name. But chances are that there’s going to be something out there that you don’t want to be reminded of. Just think of all the horrendously cringeworthy stuff you wrote to the world back in 2006, for example. Or don’t, if you’d rather stay sane.
14. Blackhead removal
“Blackhead removal” isn’t a particularly horrendous thing to Google by itself. Certainly, the images that pop up as a result aren’t as likely to scar you for life as pictures of some of the other items on this list. But as anyone who’s ever fixated on getting rid of their blackheads will know, it’s a slippery slope to addiction. Yes, once you’ve started looking for the best way to banish those dark bumps on your nose, it’s ridiculously difficult to stop. So, unless you’re looking for a gross new obsession, make sure to give this Google search a miss.
