What Did Every State Google More Than Anyone Else Last Year?
Whenever we're curious about basically anything at this point, we ask Google. Which means they get a fascinating look into what's REALLY on our minds.
A website called The Daily Dot just analyzed millions of searches from last year to figure out what the people in every state Googled more than anyone else. And here are some of the highlights . . .
1. Stuff related to the solar eclipse was big, especially the states in its path. People in South Carolina searched for "eclipse glasses" . . . Arkansas searched for "eye damage from solar eclipses" . . . and Indiana wondered "what is a solar eclipse?"
2. Colorado and North Carolina both had top searches related to Bill O'Reilly . . . Rhode Island and Missouri both searched for things related to Matt Lauer . . . and Nebraska searched for Harvey Weinstein accusers.
D.C. took a different approach to last year's "Me Too" movement . . . the top search there was "What is sexual harassment?"
3. And some states looked at totally frivolous things, including "giant penguin" in Michigan . . . "unicorn Frappuccino" in Washington . . . "Wonder Woman" in Utah . . . and "How to make a fidget spinner" in West Virginia.
