One of the greatest byproducts of Google’s existence is its autofill function. All that metadata from the world’s largest search engine offers a chilling glimpse into true humanity when guessing the gist of every query. Type in a celebrity’s name and one of the API-provided options will undoubtedly be: “[that celebrity] feet.” There’s even a game available that lets users guess which weird completions will pop up after the first few words. Sometimes, the surprisingly popular search-terms that emerge prove more entertaining than whatever it was you were hoping to find in the first place. It’s something the housing blog Estately realized a while ago when it began compiling oddball commonalities from Google’s autofill data.
Estately’s latest creation is a map of the U.S. that shows which question each state has Googled more than every other state. It is a very of-the-moment mosaic that reveals the many variations of what’s on citizens’ minds. While Rhode Island is apparently most uncertain of whether Jay Z cheated on Beyonce, California leads the nation in pondering whether Bernie Sanders is vegan. (He is not!) While the map itself offers a surprising, funny, and sometimes sad top search question for each state, make sure to visit Estately to see all the runners-up.
