We all Google whatever random thought pops into our heads . . . and we don’t seem to really care that Google is keeping records of ALL of that.
The real estate website Estately.com just finished a study that figured out what people in every state Googled more than anyone else. Here are some of the highlights . . .
1. Dead celebrities got a lot of attention. Minnesota’s top search was Prince . . . Indiana’s was Florence Henderson . . . Kentucky’s was Muhammad Ali . . . Vermont’s was David Bowie . . . and Wyoming’s was Gene Wilder.
2. And in Tennessee, the top search was “Mr. T. dead.” He’s not. Apparently they were just double-checking?
3. The election led to lots of searches as well. New Jersey Googled Donald Trump more than anyone else . . . Idaho’s top search was “How did Trump win?” . . . and Alaska’s biggest search was the Pizzagate conspiracy theory.
4. The top search in Ohio was “3-1 lead” . . . because the Cavs came back from a 3-to-1 deficit in the NBA Finals in June, and the Indians lost a 3-to-1 lead in the World Series in November.
5. And California summed it all up by searching for “2016 worst year ever?” more than any other state.
