Want to know what Americans think of the various states in their country? You could look at the movies
or TV shows
made in/about each state. You could look at the faux pas to avoid
in each state (don't put ketchup on a hot dog in Michigan!). Or you could look at what Google auto-complete has to say about each state.
The "no upside" blog searched Google for "Why is [State] so ...?" to find out what each query brings up in auto-complete. They found some fun gems like, "Why is Pennsylvania so haunted?" and "Why is Oregon [and Florida] so weird?"
Apparently 18 states in the U.S. are so boring, and more than 10 are so humid. But (according to Google searchers, anyway) Colorado, Minnesota, Texas, and Vermont are also so awesome, while Montana, New Hampshire, and New York are so great.
