  1. This was a neat idea. I live in Kansas and I’m rolling my eyes about all of the idiots complaining about the Chiefs…but I think that it’s funny that what Kansas is “famous” for isn’t even in our state. Just goes to show that there’s not much good about Kansas.

  2. I got “Alaska Senate Race” as my first for Alaska, but I think that happened since I actually did a search on “Alaska Senate Race” a couple of weeks ago. The one underneath was “Alaska Airlines”.

  3. Wow there are a lot of people in the Midwest in a tizzy. Chill out, it was a snapshot of searches used for an interesting visual. I’m sure if the Longhorns weren’t horrendous this year and the Rangers hadn’t gone as far as they did it would have shown differently for Texas.

  4. Does it really matter if you are getting a different search suggestion from where you sit? I’m pretty sure the autocomplete feature on Google changes depending on what other people are searching for that day or hour, and (as others have mentioned) whether you have location-based searching turned on or not. It’s just supposed to be for fun! And to make you think about what a lot of other people are using Google to find.

  5. I think I enjoyed the fact that people found something like this on the web – didn’t read the point or purpose of it, and decided to correct the person doing it as if it was some important document.
    “Wrong! Furnature is not from North Carolina!” “Why would you put New Mexico State University – everyone knows that the most important thing in New Mexico is Truth or Consequences!” Please don’t tell these people why this is proof of their stupidity – just please let people continue so I can laugh at them.

  6. Funny that NJ’s is about getting the h**l out of NJ and into NYC…

    Also, Maine vacations? Really?


  7. The Oregon Trail Card is used for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps). With unemployment hovering between 10 and 12% over the last couple of years, it’s sad but not surprising that Oregon Trail came up.

  8. This is a cool idea. But “Washington Post” is a mistake. The name of the state is Washington State. From that, the next word I get is “ferries.”

  9. I just did rhode island with a space on the end and I get this list in this order:
    “rhode island college”
    “rhode island dmv”
    “rhode island hospital”
    “rhode island election results”
    “rhode island department of education”
    “rhode island lottery”
    “rhode island secretary of state”
    “rhode island news”
    “rhode island weather”
    But I am IN Rhode Island. Creepy Google knows this and must know that very few Rhode Islanders get to go to the the exclusive school of design here (RISD). It’s really, REALLY expensive and has a bit of contempt for what it considers “dumb” townies (like most elite schools).
    When I attempt this search from another location via a proxy service (tor) I do indeed get “rhode island school of design.” What is not listed, but perhaps telling is the second link… which is “rhode island novelty”
    “Dumb” working class unwashed locals of the world unite!

  10. Amazing how few of the commentators seem to have the sense of humor required to enjoy this kind of instant survey

  11. I love it.

    One thing though. I am from Washington and have lived my whole life having to tell people I live in Washington State to differentiate from Washington D.C. Most news papers and programs say “Today in Washington” meaning D.C. and say “Today in the State of Washington” or “Today in Washington State”.

    So based on that the results for Washington State is Washington State University and for Washington D.C. Washington D.C. Metro

    Love the Map!


  12. One More; The full name for Rhode Island is Rhode Island and Providence Plantations and based on that the result is Rhode Island and Providence Plantations Name Change

  13. Brian, clear your history and try again. if you are running Chrome your history results are in a different color and separate from web results.

  14. Please make more maps?

    This is too much fun, I’m hooked, I have always loved word games.

    Rules: 1. Clear your History 2.Use 1 space after entry 3.Use note pad, edit with time and date at end.

  17. if these are regional then the artist must live near me (Brooklyn, NY). I got almost every one the same except: Maine Coon (vacations second, i’ve searched maine coon before), California Election Results (prop 19 is after pizza kitchen). So if these results are skewed to NY that explains nevada smiths. All you people talking about how it’s regional- make your own maps so we can compare them… that would be cool.

    the people talking about KCK/KCMO aren’t stupid, they’re responding to the thing about washington. But if they go to the power and light district they’re supporting a racist establishment.

    meanwhile… there’s a movement to buy the original rules of basketball and bring them to KU…


    If dead presidents did a Google vanity search:

    Step 1: Title + name (President Barack Obama)

    Step 2: Name search only (Barack Obama)

    Step 3: Differentiate name only results from civilian name results.

    Step 4: Cancel out all repeating results.

    Step 5: Cancel out libraries for every president after Hoover.

    Step 6: Only do a nickname search if the nickname is one of the results.

    Almost all results contain: facts, biography, timeline, quotes, family tree, accomplishments, and genealogy. Assume one or all of these are results of every search.

  19. I like a post like this. I wonder why this good post very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do itvfor you? Please reply back as I am looking to createvmy own blog. I am sure to keep revisiting to read more.


    Pre School = games
    Kindergarten = worksheets
    First grade–seventh grade = Math
    Eighth grade = bites
    Ninth grade = slays
    Tenth grade = bleeds
    Eleventh grade = burns
    Twelfth grade = kills

    3:21 PM 12/10/2010

    So I guess we learn to socialize in Pre School then start writing things down in kindergarten. Then our whole world is nothing but math from first grade through seventh. Once we enter eighth grade teenaged angst sets in and we write novels about the horrors of junior high and high school. So we enter the educational system playing games and end writing novels about killing. And then I remembered this:


  21. The Secret Life of Men

    Monday = night football
    Tuesday = morning
    Wednesday = night TV
    Thursday = night football
    Friday = night lights (NBC TV show about football)
    Saturday = night live
    Sunday = night football

  22. these are warped by location. your searches are affected by your location, so if you google your state name it will most likely be differnet than the maps answer.

  23. Uhhh…to guy who said that RISD doesn’t like “dumb townies”: I am a sophomore there and I am from RI. From Gloucester actually, the towniest of RI towns. Think before you start spouting shit.

  24. The level of stupidity in some of these comments.

    “This is wrong!” “No one cares about ______!”

    It’s not wrong, you idiotic fools. It’s just a map of AUTO COMPLETED PHRASES that differ for each person. You really have trouble understanding this, don’t you?

    I assume you also have trouble understanding the concept of toast.

  25. Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog centered on the same ideas you discuss and would
    love to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my readers would value your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.

  26. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page
    layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  27. How did you create the map itself? I would like to do a similar project with my students and allow them to input graphics or colors or images into each state in US Map.
