sailboat vs motorboat - sailboat wins

On google trends the word sailboat is searched 26.5 to 1 as compared to motorboat. Concrete evidence that sailing is better and more desirable.

Google Trends: sailboat, motorboat

Oh yeah, in case you were wondering... Good vs Evil, Good wins 3.64 to 1

Google Trends: good, evil

its a pretty neat tool, just don't compare monohull to catamaran

Interesting to compare 'catamaran' to 'sailboat'.

And *ahem* please compare harvard, yale, princeton, and columbia to see which is really the top learning institution in the world.

Google Trends: harvard university, princeton university, yale university, columbia university

Go Lions!

If you read the sample listings comparing sailbot to motorboat the searches seem to be about sailboat sinkings and missing people and "ordeals at sea"...

Be careful how you read single point data ouit of context - LOL...

Of course, you're not really meant to take it seriously when extended out beyond 'what is google searched more?'.

Google Trends: hunter sailboat, catalina sailboat
