Bet you can guess Texas’ most embarrassing online search habit

 

Last week, Republicans in Congress passed the repeal of an Internet privacy rule implemented by the FCC last year. The rule would have prohibited Internet service providers from selling the browsing history of their customers.

The repeal doesn’t necessarily mean your browsing history is for sale, but if it is, and you’re a Texan, you’re in trouble. Or rather, you might be in trouble if you’re embarrassed about searching for pornography.

The folks over at High Speed Internet have compiled a list of each state’s “online guilty pleasure,” and Texas residents apparently like searching for “XXX Content,” as the list calls it. Texans aren’t alone; porn was also the top guilty pleasure for Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana and New Mexico.

Other big “guilty pleasures”: Alaska really loves Googling celebrity news, Florida is big into “sugar daddy” sites, Utah can’t get enough fitness models, Colorado likes “fail videos,” and Mississippi residents love themselves some “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).”

Trump supporters now have their very own dating site

There’s a dating site for any preference these days. You’ve got Christian Mingle, JDate,  FarmersOnly, BlackPeopleMeet. But what happens if you’re a Trump supporter whose political views don’t align with those of your date? What if those views just keep creating a wall that your potential paramours can’t seem to ignore? What if the dates you go on simply aren’t presidential?

Well, we’ve got good news. Now, you too can have your own dating site.

Trump Singles went live in May, built on “making dating great again,” according to the website.

Site founder David Goss told the New York Post that he got the idea for Trump Singles when one of his friends told him how hard it was for her to find a date that didn’t shy away from her support of Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

Goss said that Trump supporters feel “a special stigma” when they try to date, and that they are judged too harshly for some of the “brash things [Trump] has said.”

“It makes it hard for them when trying to date,” Goss told the New York Post.

So far, more than 500 users have signed up for the dating site, from places like New York, L.A. and D.C. While that might not be a “yuuuge” number, there’s a steep price to pay for regular users. Signing up is free, but users can only send one message a day unless they pay a $4.95 monthly subscription.

While this may all sound like a joke, Goss said that it’s not— it’s “an actual real dating site that helps people find real love.”

A mobile app is set to roll out next week.

Guess there really is somebody for everybody.

Now, let’s get back to Trump’s latest Twitter feud.
