Who of us doesn't use Google to find answers to questions? How often have you heard someone say "I'll Google it?" No doubt that "Google it," has become a lexicon of our language. So just for fun, have you ever wondered what the most frequently asked questions are on Google? Well, wonder no more.
AT&T recently did a study to find out the most Googled question and have distilled the results on the map pictured below. Did you know that the most frequently asked questions in general are about pets (why do cats knead? and why do dogs lick? show up in a number of states). For some reason, why do fireflies glow? is a question that shows up in multiple states.
In my state of North Carolina the most frequently asked question on Google is where do hurricanes come from? In neighboring South Carolina people want to know why they sweat so much (easy answer here... it's the heat and humidity). In Texas, California and Pennsylvania, they ask a lot of questions. In any case, I think you'll find some of the questions by state hilarious and even weird.
