Unintentional and Humorous Browser History Stories

An anonymous reader writes "Like most Slashdot readers, I am blessed with the wonderful opportunity of doing family technical support (please shoot me). Back at my parents' house, I was busy fixing some issues that had popped up over the course of the last month and I decided to check my personal e-mail account on their system. Upon typing in part of the subdomain "mail" to access my account, Firefox decided to autocomplete what it thought I meant to type, much to my amusement. I unintentionally discovered that my mom frequents certain questionable sites that are contradictory to her personality and the things that she has taught me growing up. I was surprised, but this is not the first time I have had someone's browsing history unwantingly reveal itself. What is your strangest/best/most humorous story pertaining to accidentally (or even intentionally, for any reason) looking at someone's browsing history?"
