Sumthin' else from The Shoebox Blog... "Why Are Americans So..." in which the blogger lets Google auto-complete a statement about each of the 50 states. Fascinating stuff, this, and you should go... coz there are all sorts o' fun facts and graphics. And you KNOW what my favorite excerpt had to be, eh?
The single most common result of all was “boring,” which appeared for 18 states with no particular regional concentration. Other popular terms (returned for >10 states) were “humid”, “windy”, “expensive”, and “liberal”. Strangely, Connecticut and Pennsylvania both returned “haunted”; apparently there are a lot of ghost sightings (and related walking tours). My favorite result of all was “enchanting”: New Mexico is beautiful.Well, PARTS o' New Mexico are beautiful. Less so in my particular neck o' the woods, where there are no woods to speak of... just lots and lots o' empty spaces, which have a beauty all their own once you learn to appreciate it. And have I ever mentioned our sunsets and the night sky? Why, yes... I do believe I have.
