American have questions! And each state has a “most popular question”. Some of the questions are quite hilarious. Others are intriguing or downright scary. In this blog post, we’re going to examine what some of these questions are. The questions come from Google Trends and were reported by Estately.

The Funny Questions

Let’s just jump right in. In this section, we’ll cover some of the more funny questions, starting with this: “Is funner a word?”. Now, I know what you’re thinking. It’s not necessarily a “funny” question; however, it definitely related to the subject. This question comes from the residents of Minnesota.

“Is Ted Cruz the Zodiac Killer?” This is arguably a pretty funny question and topic (if you have a dark sense of humor). The Zodiac Killer is a serial killer who hasn’t been caught. Internet sleuths noticed some similarities between what’s known as the Zodiac Killer and Ted Cruz (former presidential candidate and current Texas Senator). Last year, Ted Cruz thought it would be funny to join in on the fun. He posted a tweet and wrote “Happy Halloween” with a photo of the Zodiac Killer’s symbol writing. This question comes from Idaho. See the tweet below.

“What is Wyoming?”. Alright, this question is being included here for one big reason: The question is coming from residents of Wyoming! Answer: the state you live in.

The Strange Questions

In this section, we’re going to go over some of the more off-ball questions people have. And remember: These questions are the most popular question in that state. Keep that in mind.

“Do penguins have knees?”. Sure, it’s a valid question! But why would the residents of Iowa be asking it? There are no penguins in Iowa! At least there aren’t in the wild. Perhaps you can find some in a zoo. If you’re wondering, the answer is yes, penguins do have knees.

“How to be emo?”. This great question comes from the residents of New Mexico. And this question is a good sign that business owners should be investing in Hot Topic and Spencer’s locations around the state. More information regarding this question doesn’t list the age of people asking the question; however, I think it’s safe to assume that this question is mostly being asked by younger teens.

The Scary Questions

In this section, we’ll talk about the more popular, scary questions. These aren’t questions like “are ghosts real”; instead, they are questions where, if you knew who was asking them, you might want to avoid them.

And here’s the first question: “Am I a psycho?”. This question comes from residents of Missouri. We hope that the answer to this is “no”.

“How to make meth?”. This question comes from the residents of Kansas. Gosh, it’s quite surprising that this is the most popular question in any state. If we were to guess, this question would be most popular in New Mexico, not Kansas. And it isn’t because meth is most popular in the state. Instead, it’s because that’s where the fictitious setting of the popular show Breaking Bad takes place.

“How to get away with murder?”. Yes, if you know someone who’s asking this question, you might want to steer clear of them. This question is the most popular question in Delaware.

“How to make a baby?”. We included this question in the scary section because if this question is the most popular one in any state, it is scary. This question comes from the residents of Kentucky. We’re hoping that this internet search educated them on this very important question.

The Smart Questions

The questions in this section are more “normal” and would seem to be questions the average person would ask. Let’s see what some of these are.

“What is quinoa?”. Good question! Quinoa is an extremely delicious and healthy. This question comes from the residents of Utah.

“How to smoke salmon?”. This is another great question and very fitting since it comes from the residents of Alaska. Salmon is abundant in the state and the people here are asking the right questions. At least, the most popular question in the state seems to be that.

“How to open a jar?”. This is another functional question and one that might be asked by more of the elderly residents of the state. Here’s a tip: if a jar is difficult to open, bang the sides of the lid with a kitchen utensil. It will help loosen it and make it easier to open. This question comes from the residents of North Carolina.

“Who won the Civil War?”. It’s important for residents of any state to ask questions like these. Wars such as the Civil War shouldn’t be forgotten. History repeats itself; however, if people remember the past, perhaps the bad parts (civil war) won’t have to be repeated. This question comes from the residents of Arkansas.

The last question we’ll cover is one that has many answers, depending on who you ask: “What is the meaning of life?”. This is a question that has been asked by residents in all cities, states, and countries for as long as humans have been alive. This great question comes from the residents of Hawaii.
