Help me with an experiment?

Dear f'list,

Do me a favor?  If you're willing to let it be known where you're typing from, do the following and post your answer in the comments (or PM me the answer):

1) go to google.com
2) type in  the word "ground" and let it give you auto-fill options
3) what are the top five responses?  where are you googling from (country, state, city, whatever)?

I was gonna laugh at ground beef recipes, but it appears I am not the only one. And I'm in Downtown Chicago at this moment, staring at the Chicago River :-D

Omaha, NE here, and the "ground zero omaha" is no doubt because of the local small chain of comic book stores with that name.

What does this tell me? Well, that I can't cook (knew that), my philosophy of terrorism class from second year is haunting my google-fu (also knew that), and I have a fascination with Wiarton Willie (news to me). I'm doing this from Keene, Ontario, Canada.
