    Proper cola tastes much richer than the bottled stuff we get in the supermarket here in the UK. You can tell the difference. I'm a funny sort though. Bottle cola has to be room temp, tastes bland when it's been chilled, whereas pepsi tastes better chilled. Real cola tastes good either way but so much better chilled. I can only imagine what true original formula Cola and Dr Pepper tastes like.

    On topic, i'll be showing you guys around my new case in video format once this is rendered and uploaded (will be sometime while i'm sleeping). Also, having an After Effects cache on my SSD RAID is absolute drool material. It's near enough instant and perfect for the task. Admittedly, i still have to avoid any disk-previewing when i run a RAM preview (the blue part on a RAM preview is disk cached content for that specific preview), but when it comes to editing it's just so fluid. Nearly unbelievable if i'm honest.

    Chances are I wouldn't like *real* Dr. Pepper either then. =/

    I don't consume much sugar these days, or sweets. In fact, stuff that's too sweet actually makes me ill.

    I do consume a lot of sugar, but OTOH, I try to gain weight. Which is a damned hard thing to do with an active lifestyle. >.> After overeating every day for two weeks last month, I actually lost weight ._. FML

    EDIT - but my point was to say, that I dislike the DR. Pepper we have in Swedia (taste like liquid almonds :P), I have only tried US-imported Dew once (tasted like softly flavoured water).
    I do like Fanta, Fanta Exotic and Sprite when it comes to soda, though. And starting to like 'Coke' again, after taking a 7-year break (I over-indulged on them previously).

    Heh, I consume a ridicilous amount of sugar from several sources, and I now weigh 45kilos.
    (That's like, 15 kilos in two years, yay for me!)
    Also, Dr. pepper tastes like crap, yeah, I said it, tastes HORRIBLE.
    But I know what subjectivity is and I respect the fact that you like the drink, and if I was in charge, I'd continue to get them made.

    Well... if you're active... sugar isn't how you are suppose to gain weight. lol.

    Try protein.

    Liquid Almonds..... that's a new one!

    Most people that dislike it here say it tastes like Prune Juice. Now i've had prune juice and can safely call anyone who says that as being on crack. If you don't like it fine, but prune juice?! The hell. I for example do not like Coke. I can drink it, but it leaves a weird after taste in my mouth, like many diet sodas do. As for Fanta, I actually prefer Minute Maid or Sunkist for the Fruity Sodas, like Strawberry, Orange, etc. Sunkist btw, is awesome for orange soda, the only one I know of that puts caffeine in it.

    Honestly, I like alot of soda flavors. Dr Pepper, Mt Dew(most of the different flavors even), Pepsi, Minute Maid and Sunkist Orange/Grape/Strawberry, Mello Yello, Sprite, Bawls, Root Beer, Most Jones Sodas Flavors. But if I could only have one, it would probably be Dr Pepper. Sunkist Orange would be a close second though.

    Also, since this is now a chatting thread, does anyone know when Dx12 would come out, so I can stop being paranoid that it launches the day after I would buy a new graphics card? (It will, I swear it will! >: )
    DX12, I've seen nothing about yet. DX11 hasn't had a major punch in the market yet, ie, games are only adding it as an afterthought. Like 3d in the cinema.

    But I weigh 63kg now. (Because I managed to go up 4kg \o/ ).

    You is tiny. I actually need to go the opposite weightwise. Not having had a job for 7 months so far, and not riding my bike uphill to get to said job, has made me a bit big again.

    Well, you're a north American. Imagine if you lived just south of the border, then? +15kg right there.

    What I do dislike though, is that stores and whatnot make us a sub-American culture, almost everything is imported American products these days. McDonalds? Tastes like crap compared to our native chains, but people still go there. Oreos? Ew.
    Worst thing is, the more we get here, the more I want what hasn't come here yet.
    As I did with twinkies(?), until a friend went over there and brought two home. It tastes... ordinary? ._. Stupid american tv-shows.

    Ahhh, but those twinkies will survive a nuclear holocaust! (Just a rumor btw, don't test it, might be bad for your health)

    And McDonalds IS crap compared to "good" fast food places here. In-n-out to name one. I personally like WEndys and Jack in the Box, but In-n-Out is just mmm. Greasy as crap though.

    People have different likes and dislikes. No problems there, until they try to mock you for liking it, or saying you drink prune juice.
