Las Vegans are not as douchey as everyone thought

Estately.com isn't just a real estate website—it also posts snarky, Buzzfeed-like lists, too. Its most recent blog took the male Facebook users of the 100 most-populated U.S. cities and measured the percentage of them claiming 10 cultural phenomenons commonly affiliated with douchebaggery (i.e. Nickelback, mixed martial arts, Chris Brown) as personal interests.

And despite conventional wisdom, we’re not the douchiest city—we actually rank 29th, well ahead of, well, most of Texas. Henderson and North Las Vegas had even bigger reason to raise their cans of Monster Energy (also a douchebag indicator): They ranked 66th and 68th, respectively—though they’re apparently jerkier than Dallas and Jersey City. Unsurprisingly, no margin of error was provided.
