This is a question My computer gave away my secrets

A good friend recently found out his girlfriend was pregnant when google autocomplete came up with 'symptoms of pregnancy'...

Has your googling been your undoing? Has someone found your gay porn stash? Have you had a Gary Glitter moment in PC World? Tell us how your computer has ratted on you.

During my PhD research
I had to use some molecular dynamics software. The package is called AMBER. However some of the names of the applications within the package leave a lot to be desired. The energy analysis package is called anal and the coordinate analysis package is called carnal. Being complicated beasts to use, I had to do a google search for examples and help on the use of these applications. In hindsight, searching google using the words "Amber", "Carnal" and "Anal" was probably not the best choice. My supervisor, who is also the head of the department, decided to walk into the lab to see how things were going and looked at my screen just as google proudly presented the immensely biological results of my search. Hmmm
