'Why is [state] so...?' Map shows Google Auto-fill for state searches

Apparently people want to know why Missouri is so "conservative"— and Kansas so "flat."

A U.S. map tweeted from the @Amazing_Maps Twitter account shows the results produced by Google's auto-complete function for each state after typing in "Why is [state] so..."



For many states, stereotypes are generated, such as for Tennessee, Georgia and Illinois.

Nebraska is "boring."

New Jersey's result is simply "bad."

Some states are described by their climates, including Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota, which are all "cold."  Florida is "hot."

At least Oregon might embrace its description. Apparently, Google users wonder why the Pacific Northwest state is so "good."
