Geekologie I Watch Stuff The Superficial Hedonistica

United States Of Autocomplete: Why is [State] So ____?

united-states-of-autocomplete.jpg

This is Amazing Map's United States of Autocomplete, a guide to the 54 states-- "There's only 50." Really? This is the United States of Autocomplete, a guide to the 50 states per the first Google autocomplete result for typing, "Why is [a state] so...". As you can see, most of them are negative and were clearly typed by morons. "Just like Geekologie." Sticks and stones, homie. Is Pennsylvania really super haunted? Is that true? And Alabama is good? You mean the college football team? Alabama is only good because I used to live there, and I wouldn't even call it good, I would just call it DECENT. My mom's broccoli-cheese casserole? OUT OF THIS F***ING WORLD.

Thanks to Liza, who used to sit in front of me in Calculus II. No? Different Liza? How many of you are there?!

    Uh Alaska is the largest state which encompasses almost the whole Eastern seaboard's land mass. And it's not that expensive we DO get a dividend every year of several thousand dollars to cover costs.

    Live in ohio and not shocked by it saying important... I swear every time voting comes along media just screams how important it is...

    quite a joke

  • SHOUTING

    Oh wow, the Tumblr world's methods of deducing popular opinion has leaked into other areas.

    For those unaware: autocomplete suggestions are dictated by the search terms you or others on your line have used in the past, and even on a fresh installation will be affected by your region.

    So.

    Buhhr.

    Right? I gave it a try, and nothing matched on my end.

  • I think we can start influencing the next round of these. Assuming people inevitable do this with countries, we should start making some weird-ass google searches. Who's up for "Why is Chile so likely to get drunk and and do gay stuff with Peru and lie about it in the morning?"

  • Ollie Williams

    Oregon is no longer listed as "good", but rather "white" according to Google.

  • Brant_Alan

    Why is Ohio so cold right now would also be appropriate.

  • Kaizer Chief

    Quite racist for them to complain about a state being "so white", isn't it.

  • Austin19

    A lot of these are the same. It just seems.... lazy. Pennsylvania is 'haunted'? No, that's Transylvania. Which, consequently, is on another continent. So there's that.
