    [​IMG] I got attacked by the LARP equivalent of father christmas. :mommy:

    Kev is now convinced whenever I get attacked by monsters I will be given stuff.

    And there wasn't all that much overflow :p Compared to half the women there! There's someone at the events who makes Dog the Bounty Hunters' wife look inadequate. She can't even look down! They impair her vision looking straight ahead!

    I don't think there were many pictures of me at the event either :lol:

    Mtn. Dew is crap, and so is Amp, but between a crappy tasting Mtn. Dew red-headed bastard child and the ultimate piece of crap called Guru... pick the lesser of two evils.

    Such a frustrating day of training. You'd think that with 5 hours available on the beds I'd have made some decent progress but I feel like I'm just treading water.

    Ha! Nice catch T2.

    Sick again, or still. That cough and my clogged sinuses won't go away. Meh. Gotta go to the doctor tomorrow lest I catch something really bad.

    Amazingly enough, I've managed to dodge being truly sick so far this winter. Usually by now I've had one awful sinus infection. I've probably jinxed myself now though... :lol:

    I drank 3 litres of Coke yesterday in one go.

    I used to think that there wasn't that much caffeine in Coke. Might not be that much compared to something else, but the results of drinking that amount were...interesting...

    Doctor said I've most probably had the swine flu. I got codein cough drops. I really hope I didn't drag it out and caught myself something nasty like pneumonia on top of the Flu. I gave some blood for testing and will know for certain in a couple days.

    The behavioural advice was: Clear your nose often, drink a lot, sleep long and don't use heavy machinery or cars after having taken the drops.

    Use a netty pot - it will clear your nasal passages right out, help get all that nasty crap out of your body.

    IMO, Pepsi is better... as for caffeine content, I can tell you that Diet Pepsi has 22mg of caffeine per cup, or roughly ~176mg per 2L... so you drank about ~264mg, which is 26ish milligrams below the dangerous level of 300mg.

    Nothing beats X-505, though. This is a mutant of caffeine.

    For once, we are in total agreement. Pepsi kicks Coke's bum! :D

    They both suck, but Coke sucks less.

    Dr. Pepper (and Cherry Dr. Pepper), and Barq's Root Beer, on the other hand(s), destroy.

    I was a huge mark for Cherry Chocolate Dr. Pepper, but it got discontinued. Coke sucks. It's discounted at work and still sells less than Pepsi. I still prefer getting Diet Pepsi Max over that foul Coca-Cola.

    Coca-Cola? Crap-a-Cola sounds more appropriate.

    Y'know, up until now, I always figured DotW was a guy. Apparently I was mistaken.

    They both are average soft-drinks at best. If I drink a Coke, no biggie. But if I drink a Pepsi, I feel like I just took some type of upper. I stay away from Pepsi for that reason. Mountain Dew as well.

    One thing I have always found odd is when you hear someone order a mixed drink at a bar, have you ever heard them order a Rum & Pepsi? How about a Jack & Pepsi? Nope. Always a Rum n Coke or a Jack n Coke. Wonder why?

    Because you need a strong alcohol to hide the awful taste of Coke? Just a thought... :p

    Coke and Pepsi and whatnots only give me a massive headache, it's probably the sugar. Give me a beer any day of the week, coke is just for tossers :p
