It actually wasn’t moving to Canada

In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, many Americans were focused on a matter of the utmost importance to the future of their lives: getting off before daybreak.

According to a chart Redditor Couldbehuman made using data taken from Google Trends, after interest in “legal weed” and “move to Canada” peaked late Tuesday, “porn” was what most people were looking for shortly after 1 a.m. on Wednesday.

The graph — which “overlaid the results from a few search terms that seemed to correlate” — also showed the results for “how to secede,” “deportation” and “America f*ck yeah.”

We think there’s a good chance the results are less than scientific, but we’re willing to accept them.

As one commenter put it: “Nothing says America like searching America f**k yeah, then jerking off.”

Yeah ... something like that.
