Do You Know the Answer to Texas’ Most Googled ‘Why-Do’ Question?

Why is Texas the best state in the country? Why do Texans make the best food? Why do fools fall in love? These are questions I thought would top the list of the most ‘why-do’ Google searches by state. Judging by the most asked question on Google in Texas, apparently a lot of us have, or are worried about Tinnitus.

According to a Google Trends study conducted by AT&T and All Home Connections, Texas asks these ‘why do’ questions the most.

  1. Why do ears ring?
  2. Why do eyes twitch?
  3. Why do I bruise easy?
  4. Why do my kidneys hurt?
  5. Why do my legs ache?
  6. Why do they call it the birds and the bees?

Based on this search list, it looks like a handful of Texans have some health issues and resort to Dr. Google for a little extra info. Except for the birds and the bees…

So here’s your answer! According to American Tinnitus Association:

Tinnitus is the perception of sound when no actual external noise is present. While it is commonly referred to as “ringing in the ears,” tinnitus can manifest many different perceptions of sound, including buzzing, hissing, whistling, swooshing, and clicking.

And if you’re interested in some of our neighboring states, Louisiana asks ‘why do people yawn?’, Oklahoma asks ‘why do dogs lick?’, New Mexico asks ‘why do we dream?’, and just because I’m from California

  • Why do flies like poop?
  • Why do ankles swell?
  • Why do girls wear makeup?
  • Why do humans kiss?

I think most people use Google to figure out random, seemingly mundane questions. I’m certainly guilty of Googling anything I don’t understand. In fact, I have definitely searched ‘why do eyes twitch’.
