MISSISSIPPI (WDAM) - Why does Nevada allow prostitution? Why does Ohio vote early? Why does West Virginia exist? These are just a few of the questions people Googled about the 50 U.S. states.
Mental Floss used Chrome's Incognito Mode and investigated what people were scratching their heads over for each state and gathered some new data.
As they developed a new digital bounty, some were expected and some were well, humorous at best. Apparently several people either believe that West Virginia, Delaware and Rhode Island shouldn't exist, or they are just curious about their origins.
Many Google users were also intrigued about why some states vote before others.
The website noted that one state search, Georgia, actually meant "counties" instead of "countries." But who knows, right?
It can also be noted that some states just don't want to be neighbors, and Texas just wants to leave period.
