11 Fascinating Things Americans Googled Most In 2015

America celebrates its birthday on the 4th of July, owing to the official adoption of the Declaration of Independence. However, the individual states might have justifiable cause for celebration on June 7th, too. This is the day on which the lesser-known Lee Resolution was passed, courtesy of Virginia Representative Richard Henry Lee. He proposed "that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States." John Adams called this decision "the greatest question ever decided." This early forecast of the independent nature of the states indeed turned out to be a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy; the most frequently searched items within each state are different among all 50 states. Below are 10 of the most googled items across the nation, and the states that googled them most.

Some of the most idiosyncratic searches include Washington's Leonard Nimoy (the late "Mr. Spock."), Dusty Miller, who is  a newspaper editor, an English fashion house, a singer, a British model and actress. If you read to the end, you'll find out everything.

1 Paris Under Attack

897 million people across the United States were interested to know the details of the tragic attacks on Paris. As these internet researchers discovered, the tragic events took place on November 13, 2015, and involved a series of three coordinated bombings. The bombs targeted a night club, and according to the BBC, the attacks hit a stadium, concert hall, restaurants and bars. The final death count was 130, with several others wounded. New Hampshire showed the most interest in the unfortunate occurrence, and it was the third most searched term in the state for the entire year (behind "heroin" and "Deflategate," reflecting the states' endemic drug and professional football problems, respectively.)
