It's nice to see Binghamton recognized for something fun, even if the 'study' isn't exactly scientific. What in the world am I talking about? It would seem that Binghamton ranks second in the United States for trick-or-treating. At least according to Netflix.

According to PR Newswire, Netflix claims they were able to calculate where the most candy is given out on Halloween night by which households in each area pause their show the most on October 31st. Netflix chalks up the pauses to people having to get up to answer the door and hand out treats to little ones.

On the list along with Binghamton, are Tallahassee, Florida which had the highest number of Netflix pauses. Watertown, New York came in third after Binghamton, followed by Lima, Ohio and Hattiesburg-Laurel, Mississippi rounded out the top five.

In a press release, Dr. Heathcliff Barr, Chief Candy Officer at Netflix, said, "More pauses mean more candy. It's really that simple."  "We love Halloween and hope that our tips help Americans either to scoop up as much candy as they possibly can or to enjoy their favorite scream-reel on Netflix without too many hair-raising interruptions."
