Google Reveals Just What Everyone Thinks of Your State

Google autocomplete really freaks me out.  I’m not really sure just how it does it, but most of the time if I have a conversation [read: “debate”] with someone then head to Google to prove just how right my argument is – the Google machine knows what is on my mind.

What is interesting is how it aggregates what everyone typically asks or searches – including your state.  According to this Mental Floss map, by simply typing in “Why does [your state]…” the mind of fellow humans are opened up completely for the world to see.

Some of the questions include: What does North Dakota exist?  Why does Nevada allow prostitution?  What does Oregon have full-service gas?

Don’t get offended…some of these are tough.
