Seems like they could use God, given how grumpy they purportedly are.

So it cracks me up that Michigan hates it. I have not made it through a single Jane Austen book. Brontes? Love them. Austen? Ugh. Kill me now.
With the exception of his THE NAKED AND THE DEAD I feel the same about books by Norman Mailer. However IMHO his TNATD is one of the best War experience novels of all time.

They have one of the largest % of porn subscribers. IT guess it's a love it/hate it relationship with them.

And in that case how can you hate something you don't believe even exists? Funny map.

To continue the fun. Posting another random map.

This map shows the most embarrassing Google searches of every state in America

One of the more amusing places to dig through the differences between the psyches of American states is in their Google search results history.

This sometimes unearths not only the things people in those states think about a lot, but also the things they might be embarrassed to ask their fellow humans and would rather ask a machine.

With that in mind, real estate search site Estately combed through 11 years of Google search data to try and find the most embarrassing search terms each state Google more than others, creating a map of the results.

Hating Times Square is one of the few things NYC people have in common with Upstate people.
