Google World - cultural differences

I am not a huge Google fan, and I do have my reasons for not to. Since this Yahoo! and Bing join up thing, (check: here) I am more inclined to use Google for complex searches (as if...).

The auto-suggestion feature of search portals is getting interesting day by day. As they have more localised search servers now, such as you can have Google-Kuwait if you in Kuwait, the auto-suggestion comes up with 'suggested searches' based on the number of similar searches carried out from that particular website.

Just out of boredom, and from my previous experience, I tried random searches on Google-Kuwait and Google-Pakistan.

Now this is what I call 'cultural difference' mean in global terms. I found it hilarious, I hope you do the same.

Some very simple search results from Google Kuwait:

Now lets see what people in our lovely Pakistan are searching for ;)
