What Your State Wants, According To Google Autocomplete


State Wants




” Google Autocomplete is notorious for taking a standard search and anticipating something completely ridiculous.

  In the style of Tumblr user Gaysquib, we conducted our own experiment and created a map of what each state wants (according to Autocomplete).

  The resulting map reads like a list of New Year’s resolutions made by Civil War veterans. Did you know, for example, that more than anything, Wyoming evidently wants an aircraft carrier? Are you close enough to Wisconsin that residents revealed their secret wish to be called “The Mitten State?” Who could forget existential Florida, whose only desire is simply “to know.”



   The artists having left out the results for six states leave us with over a third of the states wishing for either secession , independence or to split . The tally is 17 for freedom out of 44 autocompletes . That doesn’t say much for our current state of governmental affairs now , does it ?
   Trying to fill in the left out six states Google autocomplete provides us with :
Massachusetts wants … and warrants
Rhode Island (wants) … cop wants job back
Connecticut (wants) … mayor wants illegals to vote
Delaware wants … and warrants
Iowa wants … and warrants
South Dakota wants … nothing . That’s right , typing in “South Dakota wants” yields no suggestions at all .
