Slog It Blog It, Geography Made Easy!



Molly The Wally Does Some Studying!



Googles’ Autocomplete Makes The World A Better Place?


Today we are going to have a geography lesson? Actually no we are not but we are taking a look at the hilarious results from Googles’ search engines autocomplete which shows us what we really think of the world. Autocomplete functions are designed to help the Internet user find information quickly by throwing up a number of predictions. These predictions are based on previous searches made by all web users as well as those who have used the computer to perform a particular search. The search giants’ autocomplete function throws up what users have really been searching for and they range from the accurate, the insulting, to the strange and bizarre. Some are suggested when a place name is simply typed into search, while others appear when the user keys in the location followed by 'is'. 

The results show France becoming bacon, Britain is a trap while Ireland is Atlantis. 




Oh and America doesn’t get off lightly either. Idaho is stupid and Kansas is flatter than a pancake, whilst Florida is crazy and Tennessee is replaced with, nice but it ain't. 



Oh dear some of it is spookily accurate for us!
