    I had one for a while. It's not cost effective, I think was paying 38 bucks a refill, and it gets you no where close to as many liters as it claims. The only place around me that sells the refills is Target and I hardly go there and found myself buying sodas at the store in the meantime anyway.

    I just want Live Wire, but that's the only Mountain Dew no one seems to have.

    I like making drinks, so I've been making my kids Shirley Temples, and I have to say, I'd just as soon have one of those as a Coke.

    Seriously? Over here it's 9€ if you get the official one or something like 6-7€ for a cheaper clone that pretty much just has a different label on it. And for the official ones you get every 10th refill for free.

    On the subject of shops carrying a million different sweet drinks, I feel that over here they actually have more carbonated water with mild flavours than varieties of sweeter drinks :shrug:

    I've had a beard since around September and decided to shave it off. Problem is, it's February, and I'm in Canada, so now my face is entirely unprepared for the cold.

    I think the usual analogy is that beards are like makeup for dudes, but I think it's closer to hair dye for those who never keep it the same colour for any more than a month or two at a time. It's for those times where you want something to change, but also for that change to be mostly inconsequential.

    By that analogy I'm a blonde who has been dying their hair red for the last 4.5 years. That was the only time I shaved my beard in the last 6 years and that was only because I couldn't salvage it after trimming for a Halloween costume.

    I wish I could have no attachments to and be able to delete social media out of my life. It's always a huge distraction, complete of time, way too often filled with negativity, and even the root cause of envy/jealousy in certain instances...but at the same time I feel completely tied to it as it connects me to people I don't frequently see or talk to, and companies/bands/entities I want to have news from on a regular basis.

    I try my best to limit my social media to guitars, funny animals and Dank Memes/S***-Posting but it is so hard to keep my feed clickbait free.

    I've been growing my hair out again. It's at that point where if you move your head you get that little bit of hair in your eye.

    I SWEAR TO GOD THIS BULLSHIT IS THE REASON MULLETS WERE INVENTED.

    YouTube guys, can't you do better than "What if band x tuned up/down"?

    It's been done to death. The novelty of Gojira on an 8 string is well and truely worn out.

    ^Gotta keep that content mill churnin' somehow. I mean, you can have dozens of great ideas when starting a channel, but after that it seems really hard to keep it interesting.

    My struggle with justifying long hair finally plateaued after I woke up one night screaming, with a box fan attached to my head... not even joking.

    If you have long hair, why would you knowingly sleep that close to a fan? :lol:

    I used to have long hair. Screw spending 30+ minutes washing them everyday.

    Those were the days of feeling lucky to actually hit the bed while falling down... plus the fact that since it never happened prior, I never considered the risk lol.

    Because I've watched ONE Nik Nocturnal video, all I get in my recommended feed nowadays are his millions of "riffs in X tuning" videos.

    Like, damn bro, how many you got! :lol:

    I have a pet peeve against people who tape their straps onto their guitars. God damn it looks atrocious.
    Come on, strap locks are not expensive.
