I stole this idea from Gianni. This is the Google Trends chart for Internet traffic from the UAE over the past year containing the word Hope plotted against the word Fear.

Lookity there! That's when we discovered the MEANING of the word fear!!!!!!!!!!!!

Was it that we finally recognised we were in a recession? That the UAE would cop for it as well?

Or is it that fear started the day that Barack Obama was confirmed as the new President of the United States of America - November 5th or point E on the graph above. Did we really start fearing as he brought his message of hope?
