The weird things people google: by state

us-map-of-google-searchesAccording to Geekologie:

This is a US map showing an ’embarrassing’ search term that each state has made significantly more than all the others in the last 11 years. As you can see, South Carolinians want to hear a $6/minute made up story about their future, Georgians want to cook meth, Alabamians want to cook casseroles, and nobody in Mississippi is happy with the size of their dingaling. Rhode Islanders aren’t sure if they should or shouldn’t be happy with the size of their penises, and Marylanders aren’t even sure what their penises are for. Washingtonians don’t know how to dress, Maine is just plain depressing, and Alaska knows what’s up. Vermont is ready to party, Ohio is ready to REALLY party, and vaginas in Missouri shine like disco balls and can be used to illuminate emergency exits.

We’re averaging more than one mass shooting per day

From the Washington Post:

Aug. 26 is the 238th day of the year. And with the fatal shooting in Virginia today — in which a gunman shot himself after killing two reporters and wounding one more person — plus the shooting of four during a Minneapolis home invasion, the number of mass shooting incidents has risen to 247 for the year.

Today is topped of by the above-mentioned Virginia shooting of two television reporters, live, on air, filmed from two perspectives: by the victims who were being shot and by the shooter. I refuse to embed the video. Besides, dozens of people have downloaded them to YouTube.

It gets worse. The psychopath promoted the murder on his Facebook page:

But the NRA will tell you that now is not the time to even think about gun control.
