Recently VICE offices around the world have been using the Godlike, all-seeing power of Google Trends to unearth some awkward truths about our own internet habits.

By cross referencing embarrassing search terms against different population centres, we learned of South Australia’s strange fascination with pregnancy porn, saw that people from London love dad rock, realised Nova Scotia has herpes, and discovered Drenthe doesn’t know what Facebook is.
