What did you type into Google today?
If you’re living in Utah, chances are it was The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Def Leppard or Demolition Derby.
The results were compiled by Estately by looking at Google data trends over the past decade.
Also on the list: Kama Sutra, Laser Hair Removal, Star Wars and Star Trek. You can draw your own conclusions about what that means Utahns like to do in their spare time (though we were ranked nerdiest state in the nation.)
"We focused our search queries divisive topics like politics and religion, as well interest in types of recreation, music, movies, diet and health topics, famous people, TV shows, dumb questions, and a bunch of silly stuff like thumb wresting and glam rock," said Ryan Nickum, blogger for Estately, in a statement. "It’s obviously not hard science, but it does provide an interesting window into each state’s personality."
Here’s the list of what Utahns searched for more than residents of any other state:
• The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
• Def Leppard (band)
• Demolition derby
• Girls Gone Wild
• Global warming hoax
• Jay Leno
• Kama Sutra
• Laser hair removal
• Magic tricks
• Star Trek
• Star Wars
• Twilight (book series)
• Weird Al Yankovic (singer)
• What is the Internet?
