The Top Reasons to Quit Facebook

Some people are dropping Facebook because they are simply burned out, while others have different issues. Discover what they are on this list of The Top Reasons to Quit Facebook.

There's an easier way to create superficial relationships with others, called "life."

The only thing anyone ever "likes" are your suicidal thoughts.

There's no relationship status of "Obese, Lonely, and Sad."

Someday social media will hit critical mass, society will reject it, and humanity will return to communicating through soup cans connected by twine. Why not get ahead of the curve?

You never wake up thinking, "I wonder whose Friday it is today?"

You recently discovered that there's actually stuff to do outside.

Because one of your friends quit Facebook once, and what happened next was AMAZING!

Even though you just took a quiz to see which "Sex and the City" character you're most like, amazingly, your life STILL feels pretty empty!

Everyone knows FRIENDSTER is the place to read news about all your favorite celebrities, from Scott Baio to the bassist from Toto.

You're sick of some guy you sat next to in third grade insincerely wishing you a Happy Birthday.

You'd rather use a social networking site that's more annoying . . . LinkedIn.

Your mom just opened an account.

You're disappointed by the number of "Likes" you got on a photo of your ham sandwich.

Pictures of your deluxe cheeseburger lunch look much more appetizing on Instagram.

You're under 30.

You realized that AOL Chat is the only online social interaction you need.

Your annoying boss has this new policy where he wants you to do actual work for a change.

How Much Were Woodstock Acts Paid in Today's Dollars?

The original Woodstock in 1969 had a STACKED lineup, so it seems like it would've cost a fortune pay the bands . . . even if you consider that many of them are more well-known now than they were then.

A list of the fees paid to each act has been circulating on the Internet for a while now. JIMI HENDRIX got $18,000, which was the most. That seems like a bargain, but when you adjust it for inflation, it would've been more like $115,000.

Here's a list of what each artist earned . . . along with the amount it would be in TODAY'S dollars:

1. Jimi Hendrix, $18,000 then, which is roughly $115,000 now

2. Blood, Sweat & Tears, $15,000 . . . $95,000 now

3. Joan Baez and Creedence Clearwater Revival, both at $10,000 . . . $63,000 now

5. The Band, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, and Sly and the Family Stone, all at $7,500 . . . $48,000 now

9. Canned Heat, $6,500 . . . $41,000 now

10. The Who, $6,250 . . . $40,000 now

11. Richie Havens, $6,000 . . . $38,000 now

12. Arlo Guthrie and Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, both at $5,000 . . . $32,000 now

14. Ravi Shankar, $4,500 . . . $28,500 now

15. Johnny Winter, $3,750 . . . $24,000 now

16. Ten Years After, $3,250 . . . $20,000 now

17. Country Joe and the Fish, $2,500 . . . $16,000 now

18. Grateful Dead and Incredible String Band, both at $2,250 . . . $14,000 now

20. Mountain and Tim Hardin, both at $2,000 . . . $12,700 now

22. Joe Cocker, $1,375 . . . $9,000 now

23. Sweetwater, $1,250 . . . $8,000 now

24. John B. Sebastian, $1,000 . . . $6,300 now

25. Melanie and Santana, both at $750 . . . $5,000 now

27. Sha Na Na, $700 . . . $4,500 now

28. Keef Hartley, $500 . . . $3,100 now

29. The New England psychedelic rock band Quill, $375 . . . $2,400 now

That entire collection of talent cost more than $141,000 in 1969, which comes to $896,000 today. That doesn't include the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Bert Sommer . . . because their paydays are unknown.

It also doesn't include Iron Butterfly, who were supposed to receive $5,000 plus another $5,000 for their light show . . . because they never showed.

The inflated numbers make the amounts more relevant, but it was still a bargain. Music festivals today definitely spend WAY more than that, and most of them won't be remembered one year later, let alone 45-plus years and counting.

Coachella doesn't release any official numbers, but they reportedly spend several million on their headliners each year, and they have well over 100 acts on the bill. In 2008, they supposedly got Prince for $2 million.

Although, like Woodstock, the smallest bands are probably earning less than they paid to get there.

The Five Weirdest Dating Apps

Check out the five weirdest dating apps:  On The Rebound stalks your Facebook friends. . . Luxy is "Tinder minus the poor people" . . . Carrot Dating is where you BRIBE someone to go on a date with you . . . Cuddlr connects people just looking to cuddle . . . and Revealr just gives you a 20-second clip of the other person's VOICE.

Check out a list of the five weirdest dating apps . . .



1.  On The Rebound analyzes your Facebook friends' dating history, and tells you the best time to ask them out based on when they're most likely to be "on the rebound."



2.  Luxy describes itself as, "Tinder, minus the poor people."  The idea is to connect wealthy and beautiful people.  According to the people behind it, their clientele includes CEOs, celebrities, athletes, and doctors.



3.  Carrot Dating.  We've heard of "sugar daddy" sites before, and this is similar . . . you literally BRIBE someone to go on a date with you.  Users list what they'd be willing to exchange for a date, and you decide whether or not it's worth your time.



4.  Revealr doesn't let you see a picture of someone until you listen to a 20-second clip of their VOICE.  If you like it, you swipe right.  Then you get a pixelated photo of them that only becomes clear if THEY'RE interested in YOU.



5.  Cuddlr connects you with other people looking to CUDDLE.  It gives you their name, photo, and past cuddling reviews of people near you.  And if you agree to cuddle, you can trade info, or pull up a MAP with directions to their place.  (Her Campus)

The Top Things We Learned From the Oscars.

The 87th Annual Academy Awards took place last night.  Let's do a quick review with The Top Things We Learned From the Oscars.



Neil Patrick Harris is the total package.



Kanye West should've interrupted that dude from Poland.



It's been fifty years since "The Sound of Music".  And Sean Penn bathed.



Michael Keaton likes gum.



Cheech Marin directed "Birdman".



The only true winners are those who didn't blow four hours watching this crap.



Some people can follow a kid around with a camera for 12 years and get showered with accolades.  The rest of us get probation for stalking.



When it comes to movies, I have absolutely nothing in common with the Academy.



John Travolta CAN read after all!



There are few things more soul-sucking than wasting four hours of your life watching celebrities make mind-numbing, self-important speeches.



Neil Patrick Harris is like a less masculine Ellen DeGeneres.



The Academy Awards have now officially replaced a billion doves eating marshmallows in a snowstorm as the whitest thing on earth.



All awards shows are infinitely better when there's zero involvement from Kanye West.



Sean Penn looks like he's preparing for the lead in "The Adolf Hitler Story".



Many of Neil Patrick Harris' jokes could have made it into the "In Memoriam" segment.
