I know things can get a little boring in Hartford, Connecticut but I didn’t know sex with real dates were scarce as prostitutes are getting all of Hartford’s action.

This is where the party is at, folks. Head over to Delaware because their mission statement is “we need more kegs” as the cost for a Keg made the list of top searched.

9. Florida

Planned parenthood is not what is searched around Tallahassee, as the aftermath is what takes precedence. The cost of an Abortion is their most searched.

There are two scenarios happening in Atlanta, Georgia. 1. Everyone lost their driver’s license due to drinking and driving or 2. They are against drinking and driving but nobody wants to be the designated driver

11. Hawaii

Nothing weird about searching gas prices in your local area, I myself, was looking into it earlier planning for a road trip. Next.

12. Idaho

Too many Idaho potatoes are being eaten around these parts, as tummy tucks are taking the lead. Cosmetic surgeons are laughing to the bank. Mashed potatoes anyone?

13. Illinois

Nothing out of the ordinary with Daycare searches, I mean, everyone has to make a living some how.

14. Indiana

Things are feeling a little flat in Indiana, Indianapolis because these residents are spending a lot of time searching for a good deal on breast implants.

Have you ever talked to someone that always looks content, or has the “surprised look?” They can feel sad or angry, but you would never know because the number #1 searched term for cost in Iowa is: Botox 🙂

16. Kansas

Many of the lovebirds in Topeka Kansas are going to be getting married by the justice of peace. Why? Because if you’re worried about the cheap cost of a marriage license then there’s not too much in the nest egg for a nice wedding. The top searched was how much for a marriage license.

17. Kentucky

There aren’t too many cars on the road over there in Kentucky. Seems as though Kentucky peeps were not so taxi-friendly as the Atlanta Georgians. They are searching for cost of a DUI.

18. Louisiana

You need all the savings you can get if you’re in the middle of a divorce as the people from Louisiana. Maybe they can borrow money from the money savers of Topeka Kansas that are saving tons of money avoiding that back yard wedding.

19. Maine

This one is a little tricky. Isn’t Lobster plentiful in Maine? So, either people are interested in finding out market value that they can make selling Lobster or are just really craving Lobsters and are on the prowl. I dunno, kind of stumped on this one.

20. Maryland

Must be nice having enough money to travel over seas. The people in Maryland are expecting a lot of vacations to exotic places. They are solely searching for cost for passports. Or this place is full of killers and they are trying to make a run for it. The latter maybe a we bit far-fetched. I’m just bitter because my vacations consist of going out of town for the weekend.

21. Massachusetts

Looks like our Bostonians have somewhere they need to be and want to be fully prepared with some loose change. Heading to Fenway Pahk or Hahvid — Riding the “T” will get you there quick  (unless there’s snow on the rails)..

22. Michigan

Lansing Michigan residents are not taking the same chances that folks in Little Rock, Arkansas are taking because they are gung-ho on their search for a Vasectomy

23. Minnesota

Hey! It’s the eco-friendly group again. Moving on.

25. Missouri

The Swiss family Robinson is not just a Disney movie. The people of Jefferson City, Missouri are a very resourceful group—they build their own houses. How much to build a house is the top searched. I could be wrong and they are searching how much for someone ELSE to build a house—either way they spend their money wisely.

No illegal stills will be found making Moon Shine in Helena, Montana. These law-biding citizens are investing in liquor license because the cost is the most searched for in that area.

“I can see clearly now the rain is gone…” is the tune on the tongues of the people of Lincoln, Nebraska as Lasik surgery cost is the top searched. They are tired of contacts and glasses.

28. Nevada

Do people really ‘Google’ the cost of a prostitute this often? This is the second state full of lonely patrons wanting a little “pretty woman” for the night. Just don’t expect Richard Gere to marry any of them—that was just a movie, girls.

29. New Hampshire

Well, this is was a no-brainer if you grew up in New England. People in New Hampshire want their fishers license. This may have been the cause of the show “Wicked Tuna” aspiring weekend warriors. Either way, they are spending their time more wisely than the State of Nevada.

30. New Jersey

Not much of anything amazing here. We are just people searching what the average cost of a house. Moving on.

How much for a CDL license was top for New Mexico. Yep, I will just leave this one to your imagination. Again, moving on.

32. New York

I don’t know about you but the roads I drive on are bumpier than hell. I’d hope my taxes will make its way to the roads I drive on. However, things are not looking too bumpy in New York where the number#1 searched term is “Rhinoplasty…”

33. North Carolina

People in Raleigh North Caroline are nose deep in their studies, as cost of nose jobs was the top most searched for their area.

34. North Dakota

This one has me a bit perplexed. Are they searching for the cost of raising a minor, cost of paying off a minor offense or Interested in a job of mining.

35. Ohio

Okay, this is the first state that I’m proud of. Kudos to the Mommy’s out there that want kids while keeping their bodies from sagging to the floor. Less husbands searching for the cost of prostitutes the way these women don’t let themselves go. The cost of Mommy makeovers makes the list for Columbus, Ohio.

36. Oklahoma

As aforementioned, the government already hires street sweepers. Women are keeping the boobs lifted in Oklahoma, City. The cost of breast lifts was the top question hitting the keyboards.

37. Oregon

Is there a water shortage because last I knew was that water was the only necessity that is actually quite affordable–Even toothpaste and toilet paper are becoming something I need to clip coupons for to afford. Why water? That was the number one cost folks were curious about here.

38. Pennsylvania

Okay, cabs were the number one search results for Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. This is the one state that I gave a predictable guess beforehand and I’m correct. My second guess was the cost of Barn-raising.

39. Rhode Island

It’s funny that Rhode Island is even considered a state, more like a really long driveway of someone living in Massachusetts. Since cost of restraining orders are the number one searched in this state Massachusetts is happy to not be sharing their state with Rhode Island folk.

40. South Carolina

Abortion was the top searched for in South Carolina. I guess some don’t know how to spell condoms otherwise that would have been researched first.

Ski lifts are not the only things lifting people Richmond, as the cost for face-lifts were the top search.

47. Washington

The cost of circumcision is the top search for Washington. Isn’t newborn circumcision included with the hospital delivery? I don’t know and I’m not going to research it. As the folks in Washington that question—they know the answer. Obviously.

48. West Virginia

With the Divorce rate in WV being so high it’s no wonder ex-wives are trying to get their bodies back into rebound physique status. The cost for Tummy tucks were the top search for in Charleston, WV

49. Wisconsin

All that cheese you’re eating has to go somewhere, folks. Wisconsin is known for their cheese and thanks to Google giving us a little peak at what they search for—liposuction is another legacy on their belt—with extended belt holes that is.
