Source Code Search engine Krugle released some fun statistics one what developers search in Java source code. It is not all j2me, hadoop and swing. For some reason developers also search for celebs, like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton.
Satan is apparently way more popular than the scandal celebrities mentioned above.
If you actually search for Britney or Paris in source code, you find code snippet marvels like this one:
if 'with Paris Hilton' in line:
final_line = final_line.replace("paris", "Paris")
final_line = final_line.replace("hilton", "Hilton").strip()
final_line += "\\n%s has appeared in a movie with Paris so it is highly likely they've got crabs.\\n" % actor
Krugle provides code search for developer networks including IBM Developer Works, CollabNet, SourceForge.net, and Yahoo! Developer Network. In addition, Krugle hosts a free code search service, with over 2 billion lines of open source code from over 500 code repositories.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
