Do y'all ever worry?  
I google almost everything I need to know when I write my stories. For my casefic big bang, I googled cocaine trafficking and "what kind of rifle would a sniper use."

I don't actively worry about these searches raising a red flag. But sometimes I wonder...

Is it just me? Do y'all ever think about it?

That's funny! I wouldn't have thought about it. I have noticed that sometimes my search history for pictures is pretty amusing. One time it was Woman's Day, umbrella drinks, machine guns, and bunny ears.

All strictly for H50 graphics. True story.

Bunny ears!!! Love that.

Sometimes my searches are nearly that random-seeming. It's when I search illegal activities that I start to worry. But my sister says I'm a writer and all I'd have to do is tell The Man that's what the searches were for. I doubt The Man cares what I do but it does linger in the back of my head....

sometimes I think about it. mostly when I look up some kink mentioned in a story.

Yeah, that too. Well, I guess unless we run for public office or plan to be a Supreme Court Justice, no one is ever going to care what we did or did not google.

I have mentioned this before LOL, and I posted something about it a month or so ago, when I trolled Wikipedia for all kinds of assault rifles, other weapons and different ways to make Nitro and C4, then followed with a search for the USS Enterprise and Pearl-Hickam. I am still waiting for the Men In Black to show up at my doorstep LOL. BTW, the site with the most weapons info is Modern Firearms and Ammunition - I have it on my sidebar and have used it for a few fandoms. (PS Have decided that when the MiB do show up and ask what I was doing, I am telling them I was writing slash fanfic, but before I got to the sex, Steve McGarrett had to blow something up.)

Oh funny!! So it's not just me.

I'll see your Modern Firearms and raise you Weapons Used In Hawaii Five-0.

Of course he has to blow something up. It's foreplay to him!!!

:-)

Nice site also. I will have to stalk there for even more info. One thing I like about "my" site, is that they sub-categorize by country. When I wrote my fic with the weapons, I had Steve cracking a few jokes about the countries, particularly Belgium. Either way, when I update my sidebar, I will add it. Oh, and lest I forget while going off on my brief tangent, I humbly thank you for the link. (And I feel like I have an apropos icon LOL)

Ha! I also google a lot for fic, although I tend to be a little more vague with weapons so most of my googling is for much less offensive weapons, though I do try not to get too carried away at work (where I tend to do a lot of googling, believe me) as I work in a Government Dept. in my country and we're actually monitored... I haven't been shoulder-tapped yet though, so evidently their checking is extremely random or else my googling isn't too risque! ;-)

As long as you haven't had any shoulder tapping yet, I guess you are in the clear!

I sometimes google risqué things but usually I'm trying to find out about illegal activities - drug smuggling, high powered firearms, those sorts of things!

:-) Good luck with evading the shoulder-tappers!!

Ha! I guess you actually write plot... whereas I'm just into the porn! ;-) Ssssh, don't tell my bosses!

All the time!! I'm fairly sure looking up ingredients for home-made bombs, bullets, hunting rifles, ammunition etc will get me in trouble, along with the porn tips and other such sites :)
