In June of 2015, John Snow suddenly hit Google pay dirt.
 
The “Father of Epidemiology” is just one typo away from fictional Jon Snow, star of HBO's hit Game of Thrones, who had seemingly been killed off at the end of season 5. Fans eager to speculate about Snow’s death may have found themselves reading about an 1854 cholera outbreak.
