Um... don't play beer pong?

That's a feature, not a bug.

Play better, drink less chunky beer.

Play vodka pong instead. The higher alcohol content kills pretty much any germs. Also, the games are a lot shorter and more decisive.

If you really want to clean the ball just have a cup for each side that has water. Dip the ball in that. This isn't that hard.

I should give all the frats one for Christmas.
 
2014-07-27 01:22:32 AM  
Oh wait, that is a bug. Gross.

We just use water in the cups and then each side has to drink from their can. Balls clean.

You have been playing beer pong too long if you can no longer remember which glass you pissed in.

If you no longer care, the game could in theory go on for ever.

A cup with water is cheaper and won't break when the drunken freshman knocks it to the floor. Leave it to the generation raised by parents who bleached everything in sight to worry about some dirt in their beer.

Isn't the historical purpose of beer to make water self-disinfecting?

Beer-Pong=Beer.....Solved.

if you're playing games to get drunk, you're doing it wrong.
 
2014-07-27 06:35:00 AM  
Um... I'm not sure a more expensive solution than a cup of normal water, which is also less convenient and equally effective at best, is the solution that cheap undergrads already going into debt for their education are looking for, really.

Disinfection of water when brewing beer is a consequence of the boiling the wort so that you could dissolve the mash and make sure only yeast grew in the barrel so that you got beer and not something else. The pH from the carbonation, the booze and the hops do keep most things from growing in it for a while, but only for a limited time and at cellar temperatures.

I also have a solution. But mine doesn't cost $60

They didn't exactly have the wonderfully strong tastes of Keystone or Natty Ice in ancient Mesopotamia...

My friends and I cheat with water in the cups, and keep the beer on the side. Drinking the appropriate amount of alcohol is up to the player. Then again, we're adults with children who play beer pong. Or Beirut, as they call it in some parts.

Sorry bro, but my frat already has an official ball-washer and she's a coed named Brandi
 
2014-07-27 10:06:41 AM  
The friggin' game would take twice as long to play.
 
2014-07-27 11:55:17 AM  
Why is this necessary? Beer is not only alcoholic, but carbonated. It disinfects the ball for you.


...Or at least that's what I told girls I played beer pong with, anyway...

Hello fellow brother!  I too pledged  Omega Chi Delta.  Do you remember the secret handshake?

*feigns going in to exchange handshake pulls and violently shrieks*

DON'T TOUCH ME BRO!

There was this one art major named Sally that could fit 5 ping pong balls in her mouth at once.

We would just ask for a demonstration when our balls got dirty...

That's how we usually played when I was in college.

I'm pretty sure the balls stick better to beer with a little head.

Yeah, that never seemed to work in my experience. The seasoned drinkers, myself included, will drink way more than is actually required, and then the rest of the people just lightly sip on their drinks. I haven't played in years, but we eventually instated a no water pong rule in my apartment. The game became pointless (well, even more pointless) if we allowed it.

Always remember to clean your balls before tossing one off

I cant imagine that the Venn diagram of people who play beer pong and people who give a rat's ass of they ingest a little dirt has much overlap.

I expect this dude to sell tens of these....maybe he can even afford to move out of his parent's basement.

Has anyone else noticed "beer pong" arcade games showing up lately? I saw one that called itself the "red cup challenge" because none of them want to actually associate themselves with beer. I guess I don't understand the point of playing a game which has the sole purpose of getting the players drunk if there's no actual alcohol involved.
