When someone famous dies, as creepy as it sounds, alot of us go scurrying to search engines and this year was no different.
According to Google's year end tallies, three of the four fastest-rising searches were triggered by the passing of famous men. Number one was Nelson Mandela. Number two was Paul Walker from the "Fast & Furious." And "Glee" cast member Cory Monteith came in fourth, only to be beat out in third by the Apple iPhone 5S.
