Wisconsin is stupid, says Google auto-complete
|Illinoisans and Googlers think alike.|
Minnesota is awesome. Wisconsin, on the other hand, is stupid.
Or so say Googlers. Today, the Washington Post published a cool map depicting blogger Renee DiResta's work. DiResta typed "Why is [state fill-in-the-blank] so..." and documented the top four auto-completes.
Here's a look at the top results, from number one on the top to number four at the bottom, for Minnesota and our midwestern brethren.
Why is Minnesota so...
Why is Wisconsin so...
-- warm this winter
Why is Iowa so...
-- important in the presidential election
Why is North Dakota so...
Why is South Dakota so...
-- [no further results. Poor South Dakota]
Clearly, a lot of people have misconceptions about Wisconsin. After all, how the hell could "Why is Wisconsin so drunk?" not crack the list?
