So I decided to try to crochet a remembrance poppy - yes, I know it's months away but I found some yarn on the market and thought I'd have a go.  I've just Googled "instructions for crochet poppies" and clicked the images option.


Aarghh!  My 16yo son, who follows Youtubers, occasionally comes out with some nonsense but his quote from one of them that, "if you can imagine it, there will be internet porn about it," is evidently true.  X-rated crochet???  Once seen, it cannot be unseen :x

I once Googled Pussy Cat Dolls. Big BIG mistake!  :S No cats or dolls featured in the results of this Google search!

Try looking for Adult Colouring Books - when I was searching for something for a 90 year old!

@Francesca I think I must have some sort of filters on because I once Googled 'Knobs and Knockers' and got what I was looking for. Door handles! It's a real website.

Thanks @Francesca . I'd not heard of Safesearch. I do live under a rock apparently.  -< It's turned on now. I'll be able to tell by the swearing if it impedes OH in his Internet exploits.  :devil: Will it filter out idiotic Facebook pages? Political pages?  ;)

Years ago, maybe 2000, when we first had a computer, I mentioned to a friend I should find the value on my old Barbie doll and maybe sell it. She suggested about.com, you can find out everything there. Yeah.... Entered barbie doll, went to a legit doll forum. Lots of links, all informative. Then one took me to a porn portal and hijacked my computer. Couldn't get away from the page, so shut off the internet. The imagery, a video no less, was playing still. Turned off the computer. After some smelling salts  >< I turned it back on and it was still there. Took me a consult with someone much more savvy to get rid of all of it.

Mentioned it to OH. He laughed it off. Then, suddenly, every time I went to search for something some really heinous phrase would pop up in the search bar. Sometimes unbidden pages would also pop up while I was browsing. WTH? Seems OH was "inspired" by my discovery and had launched into an abundance of searches. Now, get this. Totally innocent of course. Had to nip that in the bud. Took a little interaction with his Pastor to get him sorted out. Told him get your own computer and own place to live if you want to watch that garbage.

He has no idea how to find let alone clear the web history. I do.  :ninja:

OK, so I don't know what safe search is or where to find it - and how would I know about it?
