Dear god. Stop the presses.

You mean to tell me that something has bacteria in it?! This is an outrage. I hope Subby never looks at a swab of his skin under the microscope! Quick! Someone check and see if humans have an immune system.

A hoax spread on the Internet in 2009 linked beer pong to herpes.

Oh that was no hoax. Dozens of people that I slept with in college got herpes from beer pong.

Don't think it was the beer pong alone....

That's why you play water pong.

That's what the alcohol is for.

That's what we always told any girls who freaked out about the dirt anyway

I didn't mind the dirt when I played, it was the drinking out of the same cups as X number of people that bothered me.

Very much this.

Which also lets you drink whatever you like, as long as you have a good ref who enforces the amount that you drink for each cup.

What bothered me was that the longer a beer pong tournament went on, the more aggressive and douchebaggy guys became. I actually saw a few fights break out over rule violations and smack talking.

As a wise and self-fulfilling bum once told me:

"Ain't nothing living in alcohol."

The sharing of the actual cups is the part that is gross/risks getting sick.  Dirt from the floor is harmless, but catching strep throat from a red cup is not fun.

Yeah, or while casually playing and "winning" about 10 games (in the process consuming a large amount of beer) 2 guys come in and beat you and proceede to talk shiat about it.

Water in the cups.

Beer in your hand.

This isn't difficult, people.

A few years back I shared a house with 4 other guys, and we would play beer pong anywhere from 2-4 nights per week.  I got to be pretty damn good at it too, even when I was completely shiatfaced (my roommate described one game to me where I was so tanked I could barely stand, but I was putting the ball in the cup nearly every time I tossed. I have no memory of that game.)

The findings described in this article may explain why I almost never get sick.  After living 2 years in a house where beer pong parties happened very frequently, I've probably got a superhuman immune system.

They should teach this as part of freshmen orientation.

Also, the more common house rules should be included. Only biatches blow, sink doubles and the balls come back.  I always liked the bounce rule, so if you bounce the ball and it sinks a cup they drink two, but on a bounce you can swat it away for defense.  Adds a nice element to the game where you are trying to distract the other team to sneak in that bounce.

I hate water pong. Every time i play water pong it turns into throwing a ball into cups while people sip a side beverage. The whole point of beer pong is to force attrition by too much consumption.

I never got sick from playing real beer pong in college. if there's dirt on the ball, force the shooter to dip it in a water cup first. People 200 years ago were probably exposed to much worse on the daily basis, our bodies are robust.

Your house rules are the same as the ones my friends and I used.   We also had a house rule where if you throw the ball and it bounces back to your side of the table, you get a free "gentleman's shot" if you grab it before it hits the floor.  A gentleman's shot is where you throw from behind your back (although girls just have to throw with their off-hand).

You also get two re-racks per game (if you're playing a standard 10-cup game) and when one team loses all their cups, they get redemption shots where each player on the losing team gets to take shots at their opponents' cups as long as they don't miss.  If they make a number of shots equal to the number of cups their opponents have remaining, the game goes into a 6-cup overtime period.

Except for the gentlemen's shot the rest is what we did also. Two re-racks, redemption.  I went to school in in MD. Regional rules I suspect.

I live in Utah, but one of my roommates was born and raised in Maryland, so he's probably where we got some of our house rules from.

Bouncing a quarter off the table into a glass was so much cleaner.

One house I used to frequent played something like 18-20 cups (8 oz sized, so smaller diameter), front cup gets filled all the way, leave empty cups on table where they were, only remove when down to last cup, if you make it into an empty you have to select one of your own cups and drink, if you miss the table completely you also select one of your own cups to drink.  The front cups get saved and when both teams make them they chug them off at the same time.  Personally I like your rules for a good casual time, but I'll be damned if playing the rules I just mentioned didn't make me lights out when playing standard 10 cup / 16 oz games.

Then there was drinkball, where you weren't just worried about bacteria but bodily harm from being crosschecked into a wall, or depending on the playing area, running into or tripping over objects on the sidelines.  Quite possibly the one drinking game where you might consider wearing pads.

Came to say this...

I hardly ever play beer pong (I'm 30) but whenever I do, or see other people playing, they don't have beer in the cups, they have water in the cups.  The same glasses are used all night long, never really needing to refill the water.  You drink from your own drink when someone hits a shot.

Stay Huffy, HuffPo

"The study found a high level of bacteria transferred to the beer when balls went into cups."

If that's a problem, the alcohol content of the beer isn't high enough

Anybody play the NBA Jam rule?

If any 1 player makes 3 shots in a row is ON FIRE and then shoots until they miss.
