Fascinating Ngram (or, Comparing sex with Jesus)
Tom Smith

This is just so awesome.  What a toy for insights into our history.

Hmm.  Looks plausible.

God may not be dead, but He may have reached an equilibrium.

What's with rabbits and the 1950s?  Maybe their use in scientific experiments.

Thanks Ron.

Negro v. African American (No, I don't really know if it's searching "African American")

This baffles me.

Seems fair.

A growing threat.  This can't be an accident.

Not funny.

The N-word -- fascinating.  Just eyeballing, but look at the Civil War, the forties, and the sixties.

The F-word.

Freedom, duty, responsibility.

Feminism.

Gold.

Gay, homosexual.

Computer, television

Marx,Jesus,Kant. Aquinas and others.

Economic history.

Have fun and report back.

In the f-word results, it looks like the high use in the 1800s was when typesetters used an f in place of an s.
