I wish they would break that down by county in Texas.  "Are dinosaurs real?"  *facepalm*

Pennsylvania: Back Shaving.

That seems about right.

Not sure which is sadder, Maryland or Delaware.

I was most interested in seeing what the Southern states were Googling.  They did not disappoint.

I wish they would break California's down by Northern versus Southern California.  I'm gonna guess that California's can be categorized as NorCal versus SoCal (or other) as follows:

Alcoholics Anonymous (SoCal.  If this were NorCal, they would be Googling "Stoners Anonymous" or "Tweekers Anonymous" instead, depending on location)
Bros Before Hos (Fresno, Chico, Sacramento, specifically around Fresno/Chico/Sac State campuses--also a big pocket in L.A. around the USC campus)
Dandruff Cure (SoCal, especially around Bakersfield--have you seen those people?)
Food Poisoning (Probably SoCal--it has slightly more taco trucks than NorCal)
Google Glass (NorCal, especially Silicon Valley)
Kim Kardashian (SoCal)
Meat is Murder (NorCal, especially S.F./East Bay)
Paris Hilton (SoCal)
Pokemon (WTF?!?  I'm gonna blame, I dunno, let's say Bakersfield again.)
Rogaine (SoCal)
What does Siri look like? (NorCal--again, especially Silicon Valley)

SOUTH CAROLINA: The Benghazi Attack / Golf / Hootie & the Blowfish (band) / Nudist Colony

I don't believe these are the top searches.

And North Carolina seems pleasant.

I am now afraid of both Dakotas for very different reasons.

This map is a parody.  There's no way any of these are real.  It's someone's idea of click-bait, and it seems to have worked.

WYOMING: Ann Coulter / The Constitution / Crank / Rush Limbaugh / Sheep / Socialism

LOL.
 
2014-05-19 03:09:24 PM  
I'm betting "facials", "anal", "tranny", "and" A2M are the real most popular search terms in every state.

Well you can double check it on google trends.

Yup...oregons #1 for spork.  LOL.  by a substantial margin in fact.

I see knock knock joke on the pic, but Michigan is missing from the list.

WISCONSIN:  Beanie Babies / Green Party / Log Rolling / Menthol Cigarettes / Mike's Hard Lemonade / Oprah's Book Club / Survival Shelter

Log rolling?  Really??  And why would anyone Gloogle Mike's Hard Lemonade?

Proud to see Minnesota googling our only sports team that can win games.
GO LYNX!!

I had to force myself to look at New Jersey, then I thought to myself, "That's not so bad".  Then it hit me, New Jersey is now the voice of Murican reason.

/Murica so farked
 
2014-05-19 03:13:34 PM  
Kind of surprised MD wasn't "Old Bay", "crabs", or "heroin".

// though I'd guess no one from here lacks any knowledge about god's own spice, crabs are plentiful (that's the joke), and anyone looking to get serious about heroin probably isn't that concerned with an internet connection
// also, thanks for the FILE NOT FOUND on DC - what are we, Federally-administered chopped liver?

Is this data for real? Or is it just a glorious, glorious joke?

Because man, that is some funny stuff.

ALASKA:   Adult Friend Finder / AR-15 / Bestiality / Bird Watching / Couch Surfing / Mail Order Bride / Pull Tabs / Sarah Palin

Alaska, you need to get out more. How about asking your Senators for a bridge to Vancouver? Either Vancouver!

OREGON:  Allah / Sex / Spork
Analysis:  Somebody needs to go and check on Oregon.

I'd agree with this analysis.
 
2014-05-19 03:19:37 PM  
ARIZONA:  Conjugal Visits / Hippies / Scorpion Sting

Conclusion: Sheriff Arpaio spends a lot of time on the Internet.

brantgoose: Is this data for real? Or is it just a glorious, glorious joke?

Because man, that is some funny stuff.


I think it's sort of a combination. My guess is they picked some funny search terms, and then checked to see which state searched that particular term the most.

So the state with the most searches for "Conjugal Visit" is actually Arizona, but that's not necessarily the same as it being a super common search term in Arizona.

To be fair, few people in other states would even know what log rolling is, let alone care enough to Google it. As far as the Mike's...I got nothing.
 
2014-05-19 03:23:35 PM  
PENNSYLVANIA:  Back Shaving / Beer / Competitive Eating / Eagles (band) / Freedom / Furries / Heroin / Jello Wrestling / Madden NFL (video game) / Malt Liquor / "Married With Children" (TV show), Major League Baseball / National Hockey League / Online Dating / Oxycodone / Partying / Taylor Swift (singer) / What is ketchup?
Analysis:  Might be time for the other state's to organize an intervention for Pennsylvania.


Sounds about right.  "What is ketchup?" really?  I mean there are people in PA that don't know the ingredients for ketchup.
 
2014-05-19 03:24:15 PM  
RHODE ISLAND:  Andre the Giant / Beer Pong / Blumpkins / How to roll a blunt? / MSNBC

Considering the amount of DMB cd's I own (yes cd's, and mix tapes, I'm old), I'm pretty happy with this list.

/Rhode Island is pretty, I just wish you people had more lanes on your highways.

Why does that surprise you? CA has a huge anime contingent; some of the biggest conventions in the world are held in SoCal.

TNel:

Judging from some of the comments in the weird food thread below.....it's more than just PA that doesn't know what ketchup is......
