Kwipster Calls it Kwits
Kwipster
Somebody once said, "All good things must come to an end, but bad things can continue forever." Kwipster must be phenomenal then, as it will be ceasing operations on January 31st, just shy of its first birthday. Sniff. For more information, click here. And if you'd like to make one last joke, please do so at our expense below. 1/23/12 3:40pm ET

Kwipster was cool, but I liked it better when it was called Twitter. And Facebook. And Digg. And Fark. And comment boards.

Facebook Makes You Miserable

Five or more drinks in the space of two hours? That's not a binge. That's a pre-party.
