I just checked, and "fat people should ..." autocompletes as "fat people should die". Isn't that missing a final t?

dletter: Blind people should....
n't skydive

You know why blind people don't skydive?
Scares the fark out of their dogs.

When a blind person skydives, how does he know to pick up his feel just before landing?
The leash goes slack.

doglover: Assburgers

Y'know, that's really annoying to someone who actually has AS.

/I'll admit; It was funny the first dozen times, but now I have enough blood from the people who do that to paint the Golden Gate a pleasing shade of crimson, so QUIT IT!

My first hit was "be arrested," which is a bit less extreme, I suppose.

CheekyMonkey: Autistic people should turn off auto-complete.

Autistic people should be in charge of developing a decent auto-complete algorithm.

Either Google should censor internet search results to protect our feelings or people who are offended by internet search results should bust up their modem with a hammer and eat it.

Try the South Park episode. Carman stuffs his pants full of hamburgers and tries to get a medical discharge from school.

Slaxl: I'd think it was probably more likely the result of one of those pranks certain groups do to manipulate google results

Possible, but not probably.

Do you not remember Sandyhook? The shooter had assburgers. Assburgers is an autism spectrum disorder. There can't be that many people searching for the string "people with autism should" in the first place. But internet forums where ITGs spout endless nonsense at each other are plentiful. The spider probably just picked up on a recent spike in activity.

/I'll type out the proper name for assburgers informally when the phrase "ass burgers" stops being funny.
// Hee hee, assburgers.
