why search 12345?

What were you thinking? The 12345 oddity!

 What on earth were you thinking when you typed 12345 into that search box and hit search? Maybe you were bored, maybe you were genuinely after the lyrics to the famous kids song? Bizarrely you'll be pleased to know that you aren't alone in your seemingly random searching. In fact, a staggering 673'000 people search for exactly the same number every month. I dont know about you, but that really is incredible isn't it?

Intrigued by this really quite bizarre search term, ive put together some probable and not so probable possibilities. Some you wont have heard of and some you will. Most of all I hope to get closer to understanding if it is just boredom that motivates those 673'000 people when they search 12345.
