According to BuzzFeed and PornHub, Kansas watches the most porn in the land.
They want to make various idiotic points about this that hold no journalistic water, and, as a result, are TOTALLY within BuzzFeed’s usual reporting penumbra — emphasis on ‘numb.’

Pornhub’s data team split the country into red and blue states—based on the 2012 election—and then took the total number of pages viewed per state and divided that by the population….
It is NOT “highly accurate.” In fact, it’s a journalistic abomination. Over one third of voters are now “independents” (a term meaning “I’m so stupid that I ace myself out of voting in primaries, where candidates are actually chosen, and I can have the most effect”) and, as a result, the whole conceit is intellectually bankrupt.

UPDATE 3:43 AM PDT 13 April 2014: The perspicacious reader has noted that the list begins with Kansas at 192 and ends with Arkansas at a mere 77.
What is it, one wonders, that causes the near complete shutdown of that Kansan erotomania with the addition to the spelling of ‘Kansas‘ of the prefix ‘Ar-‘ ?
What secret and terrible anti-erotic power does this syllable ‘ar-‘ represent? Is it perhaps some ancient pirate gene? The magnetic effect of a linking verb on a proper noun? Some ancient Shawnee cursing transformation? Surely the spelling must have a profound effect. At least I believe it, and belief is sufficient to make anything so. Faux Nooz™ has taught me that.
And 192 is getting to three times 77.
