The 50 American states are very different, but there's one thing that unites them all: a closet full of skeletons. Knowing that, the map nuts at Estately's real estate blog made this map of the most shameful Google search each state makes more than any other.

They combed through search data from the past 11 years, isolating terms that each state searches more than any other. From those, they picked one for each state that they deemed particularly embarrassing. Some of their choices might be controversial (What's wrong with Alaska searching for Nicolas Cage? National Treasure is awesome), but they're all enlightening.
