But those things aren't what people are really searching for.
Earlier this month, the cost-estimating website Fixr.com put together a map of the world with the most-Googled for object in each country, using the autocomplete formula of "How much does * cost in [x country]."
While the results are far from scientific — since Google autocomplete results vary based on the searcher's history, the time of search, and the place of search — they do say at least a little bit about how countries are perceived.
The search results turned out to be hilarious and informative, and gave a peek into humanity’s cost obsessions per country.
Some of the fascinating results:
• People want to know how much a MIG aircraft costs in Russia
• People want to know how much travel costs in Mongolia
• People want to know how much cow costs in India
• People want to know how much beer costs in Turkey (not in Germany!)
