The Top 10 Things We Miss Because They’ve Been Replaced by Technology

  Remember back when you could make someone a mixtape or a photo collage for Valentine’s Day?  This year you’d have to make them a Spotify playlist or a Facebook photo memories video.  And that’s REALLY not the same.

A new survey asked people to name the things that have been replaced by technology that they miss the most.  Here are the top 10 . . .

1.  Making mixtapes.

2.  Putting photos into albums.

3.  Recording TV shows on your VCR.

4.  Having printed photos around the house.

5.  The excitement of seeing how the photos from a roll of film turned out.

6.  Handwritten letters.

7.  Sending love letters.

8.  Sending postcards.

9.  Having a penpal.

10.  Buying CDs and having a CD collection.

A few things that just missed the top 10 are:  Phone books . . . playing board games . . . disposable cameras . . . and remembering phone numbers by heart.

The Best Movie That Takes Place in Every State put out a list of ‘The Best Movies That Take Place in Every State.”  And since this is the type of thing that’s RIPE for igniting debate and controversy, they explained their thought process like this:

How Long Can You Use the Same Sheets Before It’s Gross? The Average Person Says 35 Days

How long can you use the same sheets before you’re a disgusting human being?  According to a new survey, it’s more than a MONTH.  The average person says 35 days.  On day 36, you’re officially gross.

Not surprisingly, a large part of America’s SINGLE population falls into that “gross” category.  The average single person waits 40 days to change their sheets . . . 35 days for single women, and 45 days for single men.

The overall average is 24 days . . . 19 days for women, 30 days for men, and 20 days for married couples.  The one time men are more likely to change their sheets is when they might get LUCKY.  49% of single men put on fresh sheets if they think they’re going to have sex.  Only 39% of single women do.
