One of the most fantastic things about the internet is this... You don't really need to know what you're looking for in order to find whatever you're looking for. You can simply put a few strategic keywords into a Google search and odds are you'll find 'it' on the first page.

All the same, when the autofill suggested searches pop up, it doesn't always inspire confidence.

Case and Point: Where is Oklahoma?

The top suggested search for Oklahoma is "Is Oklahoma in Texas?"

The list of suggestions continues too. Is Oklahoma a state? Is Oklahoma in the South? Is Oklahoma in the Midwest?

All very fair and informative searches. Spoiler, Oklahoma is neither part of the Midwest or the South--even though we were the absolute last territory to make slavery illegal in this country.

Oklahoma is actually part of the American Southwest.

The search suggestions continue... Is Oklahoma legal weed? Is Oklahoma a good state?  Is Oklahoma at war with Native Americans? How do you say Hello in Oklahoma? What language does Oklahoma speak?

Also a fair question - "officially," Oklahoma speaks English... but also Cherokee, Choctaw, and Spanish.

While I haven't looked, I'm sure this is probably a feature of most state searches, it just struck me as odd. Not as odd as what AI thinks of Oklahoma, but odd nonetheless.

Oklahomans According to A.I.

While you might not think Oklahoma was so viral on the web, there are hundreds of solid Sooner State-based TikTok accounts and creators out there. Most of them are associated with the #FarmTok tag, a fair amount of Lord Farquad-looking teens tossing slushies on their squatted trucks, but also a handful of standouts. Accounts like OklahomaViews - whose mission seems to be creating epic OK content until they go viral. Let's see if we can make that happen.

Here is what A.I. thinks Oklahomans look like around the state.

Tiny Oklahoma Towns With Populations Less Than 15

The list of ultra-tiny Oklahoma towns is surprisingly longer than one might expect. By any metric of measurement, a "small town" in Oklahoma is widely considered under 5,000 people, but these tiny towns of 15 or fewer people redefine how we think of small towns.
