Tuesday Humor: The United States According To Google "Autocomplete"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

As an experiment, Bloomberg Businessweek typed the names of the 50 states into Google to see what people most frequently ask about them. The questions range from dumb (well, mostly dumb) to revealing, both about the states and about the people doing the searching. Lots of questions about carrying a gun, buying alcohol, getting divorced, and fighting union organizers. Whether a state is in the Midwest or South seems to be a particular obsession. But the most common question about the states is even more basic: Is it a state? or Is it racist?

It doesn't matter where he was born, his dad wasn't a citizen, so everything Obama has done in office is legally dubious. But it will likely never be challenged as such because his opponents are worried about soiling their knickers. They don't understand that we're in the thrall of a bunch of shady people who'd like to see most of us dead.

He's a citizen, unfortunately. His father is Frank Marxial Davis, Jr. and his mother Stanley was, um, not respectable.

That's the real reason you aren't allowed to see his real birth certificate.  Barry Senior left for Africa as soon as he figured out that Stanley was likely to bear him a bunch of other black guys' children.

Better Questions:

1. Do they have an income tax?

2. Are they currently governed by Democrats?

3. Have they been governed by Democrats longer than Detroit?

4. Did they vote for Obama?

5. What percentage get free stuff?

6. What percentage want more free stuff, including illegal aliens?

7. Are their unemployment and other free stuff benefits better than their neighbors?

8. Is Gay Pride day bigger than Columbus Day?

9. Can illegal aliens vote officially or unofficially?

Compare the answers to your own productivity and politics and move accordingly.

No law says you have to vote for the politicos in your own party -- just yet.

I grew up in the South and the Democrat Party is vastly different from what they used to be. They actually used to be virutently anti-communist, states' rights and pro military. They just like labor laws and some protectionism. They are pretty much socialist-progressives, now. Even the reasonable moderates like Moynihan and Simons are dead and gone.

I think they will become Obamunists in the near future.

A simpler approach may be to determine how much paperwork and/or gooberment ass kissing you have to do to buy a gun.  I haven't done a formal audit, but there seems to be a correlation between lack of gun rights and all the statist bullshit crushing us from all directions.  

Move to a state where it is still relatively easy to buy a gun, and there is a good chance some of your other freedoms may be reclaimed also.

Can anyone think of any obvious exceptions to my line of thinking?

One thing I noticed, particularly in regards to the strictly geography queries are that the results are in "border areas"  Note that North Dakota down through Kansas and Minn. down through Missouri are clearly in the mid west, and those in green are ambiguous. 

The same goes for the South as solidly southern states do not show up.  Only ambiguous ones do.  Funny things about Mid-West is that there are two.  One is the original, which is to say Ohio through Illinois (old mid west during the 1800s)  And the other term constitutes the great plains states sans Montana.

Is Idaho racist? [Idaho, you seem to have an image problem.]

 

No problem here!

Is Idaho a state? I LOVE that one...

ANSWER:

NO, Idaho is not a state. It doesn't exist. The winters are too cold, and the summers are too hot. The standard of living is too low, and we (oops, THEY) don't even have the 'internets'. There are no jobs here (oops again, I mean, THERE). Forget all about the mythical 'Idaho', and stop surfing the internet asking stupid questions. Pull your pants back up, and google 'twerking', and forget about Idaho. We (SHIT! THEY!) are not real. If they were, they seem to have an 'image problem' anyway, and you would not wish to be associated with any 'image problems', would you? WOULD YOU? There, see. all better now! Don't you have better things to do, like finding out how to surf porn sites without your wife finding out?

When going through puberty, some youths notice that they get pimples.

Sometimes they see these rise out of their skin, and it is most disconcerting to the masses.

I never suffered this malady personally (I understand that this was mostly due to the vaccinations for Chickenpox).

Anyway, these pimples itch, and my friends have told me that it looked like a mini-volcano when they would squeeze their skin around the deformation (that itched badly). The pimple would erupt in a flow of icky shit...
