California has way, way more beer pong players than anyone else in the world, according to the company And it should know, because is the "center of the beer pong universe."

Follow this logic: If is the center of the beer pong universe and it hosts a world championship tournament every year in Vegas and more Californians show up than any other state, then it must mean that there are more beer pong players here than anywhere else.

It has nothing to do with geography or hosting a tournament next to a state that gets 55 electoral votes. All those lame states like Vermont and Idaho that never send beer pong players to Vegas just need to get with the beer pong program.

Leave it to a bunch of drunkards to come up with a lame way of doing a "survey."
