Google Trends Finds Out How Weird Each State is by Their Internet Search History
You might think every state is busy searching for porn but the searches are actually way more shocking than that.
Estately.com decided to embarrass most states by using Google Trends to find out what terms, words and questions each state search for more than any other.
Our lovely state of Texas has some really weird people who are searching for herpes, zombies and even dinosaurs. Other Texas searches included meth recipes, purple drank, tacos, snake bites, boogers, calf implants and everyone's favorite, does beer make you fat?
I have a weird feeling someone might be making up these searches because I find it hard to believe people in New Mexico are searching for Frito Pies and Juggalo. I picked out a few of my favorites but all the states are pretty equally weird:
