    Google word usage tracker

    If you are bored this is a good time killer. Google has inventoried the usage of words in books from the 1800's on. You can search to see trends over times. Looks like the use use of Cyclones peaked in the 1890's. The good news is we seemed to have reached peak vampire (although this is through 2000 so there is probably a bump).

    "Bung hole" peaked around 1822. Surprising since we seem to have a plethora of them nowadays.
