South America : Google autocompleted

wordcloud_southamerica

Inspired by a Bill the Lizard’s blog post Why is [programming language] so … ? which was itself inspired by an infographic called Why is [state] so … ?, I decided to try something similar with South America countries (no map, yes screenshots).

Back in school (pre-Wikipedia times), during Geography classes, I was taught that South America is one region of THE America continent and not a continent itself as nowadays Wikipedia says. Also, back in school, I was taught that South America includes twelve countries, in alphabetical order: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela.

As Colombiana and currently studying abroad, I keep facing truths and myths perceived as realities by people from everywhere. Because nasty myths came often than truths, I keep wondering, How were spread so many wrong facts about us? it could be Google’s fault (why not?). Anyway judge by yourself
