Most of the US has only a vague understanding of the rest of the country -- hence the absurdity that is the 2016 presidential election. But when Americans want to understand why their fellow states are the way they are, they turn to one place:
That in itself isn't interesting -- but when you see Google autocompletes for what people ask about other states and regions, you get a sense of just how negative geographic stereotypes really are. Redditor Salem-Witch compiled a map of the top three autocomplete queries for the phrase, "Why is [state] so...?" for all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, and a bunch of regions around the US, and it turned up some interesting questions -- and a whole lot of inanity.
For example, the masses want to know why Texas is so big, hot, and cheap -- it's the Domino's pizza of states -- or why the Midwest is boring, humid, and flat. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The humid thing came up time and again -- easily the most commonly asked question throughout the country. Apparently, nobody paid attention during science class.
If you're viewing on mobile, these maps are gonna be too small to view. But take a gander, and then read through the list, alphabetically by state, and then by region.
