Yes, Everyone Thinks Arizona's Hot, Racist and Crazy



What four words would you guess the English speaking world most often uses to complete this question?

Why is Arizona so...?


Yep, according to a super-scientific survey of Google's auto-complete feature, blogger Renee DiResta developed a map compiling the top responses for the question "Why is [state] so...?" and of course, the top responses for Arizona include racist, crazy, and hot. To be fair, most states, when using this particular metric, don't come across so great: Tennessee is stupid, Utah is weird, Pennsylvania is haunted, apparently. However, it would be nice if something positive came through, but at least we beat out Arkansas, a state so defined by being poor, that no other auto-complete suggestion is even made on the Googler's behalf.
