2017 was an awful season by almost all measures, a gloomy assembly line of distress that produced one damn atrocity after another. Despite being battered by natural disasters and mass shootings, brave Americans failed muster the will to outside dozens of strong and sexually predatory men. During it all, Americans attempted to make sense of it that the only way they know how: by Googling it.

To create this map of 2017 Google hunts, we compiled a list of the biggest news stories, lists of folks who attracted our attention, actors who passed away, as well as the problems, trends, and events which created Americans pause. Then we ran them all through Google Trends to find out which states hunted for all these things more often than any other state.

We heard Hawaiians were busy exploring Bitcoin and keeping a look out for North Korean nukes; Minnesotans investigated their locally produced creeps; Georgians heard the truth about Usher’s cold sores; and during all of the sound, Mississippi nevertheless found the opportunity to learn how to produce slime.

It was a nightmare of a year, and yet one we’d likely like to forget. Maybe we can take a lesson in New Jersey, that is Googling “2018” over every  other state.

Beneath, you’ll find the things each state hunted for more often than any other state in 2017.
