How many Facebook Friends do you have?
Answer our poll HERE
Top 20 Facebook Friend dealbreakers from theFrisky.com
1. Misogyny, homophobia, or racism. Zero tolerance. One post like that and you’re gone.
2. Constant invites to play Farmville. See also: Bejeweled, Mafia Wars, Cafe World, or “Answer this question about me right now!”
3. Constant posts about DJ nights and parties. Especially when we don’t even live in the same city anymore.
4. Constant posting in general. Don’t clog up my newsfeed, bro.
5. People who post vague status updates that sound like suicide notes. “Sometimes I wonder if it’s even worth it anymore…” is not an appropriate reaction to your boyfriend forgetting to buy milk.
6. Posting a photo of your child’s poop. Or your dog’s poop. Or your poop. Let’s just keep poop off Facebook, shall we?
7. Name dropping. “I’m partying at Ryan Seacrest’s house, y’all!” Good for you. Unfriended.
8. Being an asshole. We all have a few friends who are quick to correct our grammar, make fun of our status updates, and start flame wars in comments sections. We should all stop being friends with these people.
9. Posting Instagram photos of every meal. Chipotle is not worthy of photo documentation, you guys.
10. Pleas for donations. We’re not against giving to charity, of course, but we think it’s rude to ask people you don’t know very well to give you money.
11. Oversharing. We really, truly don’t need to know about what happens in your bathroom, your bedroom, or your doctor’s office.
12. One too many themed photoshoots. Look, a comic book makeup photoshoot every once in a while is great. An occasional erotic bondage-themed photoshoot is just fine too. But do we really need to see full photo sets every week?
13. Compulsive check-ins. Stephanie checked in at Starbucks. Stephanie checked in at work. Stephanie checked in at the conference room. Stephanie checked in at the park. Stephanie checked in at the grocery store. Stephanie checked in at the movie theater. Stephanie checked in at Stephanie’s house. Stephanie is not our friend anymore.
14. People who treat all their Facebook friends as potential customers. We wish you the best of luck with the sex toy party business, but we’d rather not be invited to five of them per week.
15. Conspiracy theorists. 9/11 was an inside job. Obama was born in Kenya. Why are we friends with you, again?
16. People whose lives seem way too perfect. You’ve got a gorgeous husband who buys you flowers every day, lovely children who never misbehave, a fulfilling and high-paying job, a spotless home, a killer wardrobe, and an endless stream of tropical vacation photos. Also you’re ruining my life.
17. Politics overload. We love a rousing political discussion, but using Facebook to bombard your friends with all politics, all the time, is totally exhausting.
18. Daily platitudes or passages from the bible. Way more annoying than inspiring.
19. People who go to a wedding, like, every weekend. We can only look at so many photos of bridesmaids jumping in unison.
20. Negative Nancys. “I just can’t catch a break.” “Why do I even try?” “Same crap, different day.” Dude, you are killing my life buzz.

11 Disgusting Ingredients You Eat Every Day That Food Companies Don't Talk About from businessinsider.com
Crushed beetles in Starbucks drinks ... you've probably consumed at least one pound of red dye in your life. That means that you've also ingested at least 70,000 cochineal beetles, according to a petition on Change.org.
Rat hair and insect fragments in chocolate .. The FDA allows one rat hair per 100 grams in six 100-gram subsamples of chocolate and 60 insect fragments per 100 grams in six 100-gram subsamples.
Beaver's anal secretion and urine in ice cream ... Vanilla and raspberry flavors might be enhanced by "castoreum," a mixture of the anal secretions and urine of beavers. It's also found in perfume. The FDA-approved product is categorized under "natural flavoring," so you won't know if you're eating it.
Fish bladder in beer .. Isinglass, or dried fish bladder, gives beer its golden glow
Sheep's wool residue in chewing gum ... Lanolin—a goopy, oily secretion found in sheep's wool—is an FDA-approved additive used to soften chewing gum. It can also be found in cosmetics, sunscreen, and baby products.
Duck feathers in baked goods ... L-Cysteine is an amino acid often used in dough conditioners, which softens mass-produced breads. It is made from human hair or duck feathers. Although 80 percent of L-cysteine is made of human hair, McDonald's uses the duck feather variety in its Baked Hot Apple Pie and Warm Cinnamon Roll.
Toilet bleach in potato chips ... Sodium bisulfite is used in most toilet boil cleaning agents. It's also used to extend the shelf-life and bleach out the discoloration of potato chips.
Sawdust in grated cheese ... Cellulose, or virgin wood pulp that is more commonly identified as sawdust, is an ingredient found in shredded cheese. It keeps the shreds from clumping up. Cellulose also appears in Kraft Parmesan Cheese.
Maggots in mushrooms ... The FDA says its legally OK to have up to 19 maggots and 74 mites in a 3.5-ounce can of mushrooms.
Sand in Wendy's Chili ... One key ingredient to Wendy's chili is an anti-caking agent called silicon dioxide. Street name: sand or glass powder.
Pig skin in jello ... Gelatin is made from collagen, which is boiled down animal connective tissue. Today, gelatin most likely is made from pigskin.
