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.
