    .5L of the juiced prune should get you the br00tz. Plan your day carefully.

    When I was in the army I went almost a whole week without pooping :lol: Holding it wasn't so bad, but when I finally hit the shitter... It basically felt like all my guts were coming out along with it.

    Lexus wouldn't start so I was late for my dentist appointment (that my company pays for). That seems like a particularly first world problem to me!

    Watched some porn the other day and started wondering wtf is up with all the squirting videos. Is that supposed to be hot somehow? I mean, my wife does that pretty much every time we fuck, and it's annoying if anything :shrug:

    There's sooooooooooo much out there that this is my reaction to. I sometimes wonder if there's some kind of weird anomaly in how people's viewing patterns are tracked that make all kinds of wacky nonsense appear to be popular when in reality there's very few people who are really into it.

    I forgot how much I dislike the theme tune for The Crown. And the remote was too far to hit skip intro.

    Trying to pre-download is like Microsoft-level baaaaaad.... order of queue jumps around, can't properly pause-start independently, tries simultaneously downloading multiple files on a shoddy connection sometimes and just one at others, can't queue up different quality levels without workarounds


    Hell it doesn't even have a percentage counter

    AND it refuses to download in background while watching another downloaded episode


    Wtf wtf wtf????

    I like coconuts. I like coconut shrimp, coconut milk based curry, even coconut sweets like cookies or candies or my mother's home made coconut chocolate ice cream. I like raw coconut shavings. I like coconut oil and coconut scented candles and lotions. I like pina colatas.

    So why do I hate coconut water?

    I've tried buying it a couple times now and it's just fucking disgusting. I read the ingredients... why are they adding sugar to this shit? It's unbearably sweet. It's gross. And I don't mind an almond joy, and that's literally 80% corn syrup.

    It gives this feeling of "hydration" that is different than plain water. I feel more "hydrated" despite that I hate the way it tastes. Could they please make some reduced flavor non-sweetened coconut water?

    I've seen straight coconut water several times in the organic/small chain stores. Check Whole Foods or Trader Joes etc. if they are in your area.

    Not to be the 'no shit,' guy, but I'd really suggest just buying coconuts from time to time and draining the water yourself. Tastes great and works incredibly well with mixed drinks. Then you get the added pimp factor of being able to serve them in the coconut if you manage to get the hole right.

    But yeah the stuff you buy in the carton in the store always tastes way sweetened and artificial-ey. Trash.

    I like the taste of coconut but I hate the consistency. Like Bounty, for example. Maybe the best candy bar there is but god damn I hate trying to suck those coconut shavings out of my teeth for an hour after having one.

    just buy actual coconuts and drink the liquid. You feel more hydrated drinking it because they're usually have a good amount of potassium, which is a critical electrolyte. Granted straight coconut water tastes like ass ime, but it's basically the best option besides making an ORS from scratch or drinking pedialyte in terms of oral rehydration.. I do have an ORS recipe from WHO/Doctors without borders if you want it.
