Just for fun.

The app, appropriately named Hater, matches people based on what they don’t like. According to their website, the idea was inspired by a University of Oklahoma study that found that when people share a negative attitude about a third party, it becomes a pretty effective bonding tool.

The app prompts users to select (via swiping, of course) whether they love, hate, like, or dislike a famous person, activity or concept. A rep from Hater told HuffPost that the app offers its users over 3,000 topics to swipe on. Once a user has logged a number of likes, dislikes, loves and hates, the app uses an algorithm to find compatible matches based on the info provided.

According to the company, they have been keeping tabs on what their “few hundred thousand users” in the United States despise since the app launched in February. And it turns out, people in different states hate very different things.

I have to agree, WA hates K-Cups? Those Keurig K-Cups are flying off the shelves, and many people love them here despite having a lot of really good independent coffee shops. We just can't go out and get our coffee at those places whenever we need a cup, and those machines are very convenient. I have a Nespresso, however, but still don't "hate" the K-Cups, I am indifferent to them. There are many other things that people hate a lot more in our state.

Of course, any study is only reflective of the people that participate, and then only if they are honest. We all know how accurate surveys are now, after the presidential election.

Lol at Casey Affleck for Delaware. That is quite random. Maybe the K-Cup thing for WA is because most of them aren't environmentally friendly?

K-Cups are terrible for the environment and a huge waste.

People in New Hampshire hate God? That's strange; I thought they just didn't believe in him.

But they're so easy, and I'm not throwing a half a pot of coffee away!
