    Ok the Facebook app I kinda understand using 50% of my battery (which I still feel is too high).

    But randomly a few days ago VideoSurf has been showing as 40% of my battery drain! At the same time, my Bionic started to almost die from 8am-Noon every day.

    I've never used VideoSurf and I've never even opened it. Any idea why it would suddenly become a battery hog? I'm not rooted so I can't remove the useless f*&^%#g thing.

    Well videosurf is an example of bloat I actually kinda liked, but if it ever drained my battery like yours seems to be I'd be pretty upset. Not sure, But like posted above I would either root and freeze it or factory reset your device.
