The United States Of Questions: What People Google Asking About Each State

February 5, 2016


This is a map created by the folks at mental_floss showing autocomplete search results for typing 'Why does [state name]' into Google while in Chrome's Incognito (aka p0rn hunting) mode. The majority of sports related results were dismissed with a few exceptions for states that nobody asks any non-sports related questions about. What is that state in the middle that people ask why it smells? Is that East Dakota? "Nebraska, East Dakota isn't even a real state." Uh-oh, looks we've got a geometry whiz over here! "Geography." I should have gone to school.

Thanks to hairless, whose Google searches are entirely razor and Nair related.

    The answer to why Florida sucks is: Because the majority who live in Florida are from somewhere else. like Michigan, New York and several of the New England States for an example..

    People want to know why Georgia has "so many countries"

  • Jenness

    I clicked on comments just to ask that exact same question, then see below that Shaun9lives answered thinking it must be a type of the graphic designer.

  • Shaun9lives

    *Counties*, Georgia has a shit-load of counties, the second most behind Texas, which has over 5 times the land mass.

  • MM

    no, dumbass, read the fucking picture. There's an R in there.

  • palpable ovaltine

    I know what was meant to be there, but countries is actually what is listed on the infographic.

  • Shaun9lives

    No shit. The infographic is wrong.

  • Boanerges1989

    The infographic is right. I checked. Spelling is not the strongest skill of internet-goers. I could go further and mention that it is not a skill at all.

  • Because daylight savings time is no longer relevant and ironically, a waste of time.

    Everyone in Arizona

  • Briane Pagel

    Yes, Arizona is way ahead of the rest of us saps in everything from ignoring daylight savings time to being viciously racist. Kudos!

  • Jenness

    Way to generalize Briane and insult millions based on some internet meme you read once.

  • IronMant

    If you want to know why Colorado hates California, watch season 10, episode 2 of South Park, "Smug Alert!".

  • Emmitt Morgans

    But Wisconsin doesn't have "a" NHL team... I think a lot of people were Googling-while-drunk.

    I also see that people wonder why Georgia has so many countries... interesting. I'm going to say "because Coca-Cola." That makes just about as much sense.
