I believe that there are different levels of Diet Coke, and there are a number of factors that go into determining how amazing a Diet Coke is. 1. What is your need for a DC? Sometimes you have one just because, but other times it is satisfying your deepest desires, while other times you are just fueling your addiction. Sometimes you drink a DC to get you through the day, other times just because you are thirsty. Sometimes the food you are eating requires a DC, like BBQ or Mexican food. Right now I'm drinking one because I just want to. 2. Is it from a can, plastic bottle, or fountain? My preference is Fountain, then can, then plastic bottle. My DC is from a Fountain. 3. If it is from a fountain, where did you get it? Sonic is known for their delicious drinks, however some places seem to dilute their fountain drinks. This is unacceptable, and I can always tell when a DC has been tampered with. If you're drinking a canned or bottled DC, how cold is it? is it freshly opened or has it been opened for sometime? Has it been in a glass with melting ice, which is another way DC's can be diluted. My Diet Coke is from Pita Pitt, and it is delicious. 4. What kind of ice, if any is cooling your tasty beverage? Obviously the little cubed ice is best, like Sonic's. Crushed ice is the worst, because it melts so fast. My ice is the traditional sliced ice common at most restaurants. 5. What is the end result of the Diet Coke. There is really only one answer for this, which is "I feel better than I did before!" But how much better do you feel? As I am coming to the end of my beloved Diet Coke, I can already feel the results: my day has been made, the sun seems brighter, life seems sweeter, and I am complete. While there is no such thing as a "bad" Diet Coke, there are different levels, the lowest starting at Awesome and from there, the sky is the limit as to how great a DC can be!!!

i just finished reading two of chuck palahniuk's novels: invisible monsters and fight club. most are familiar with fight club due to the movie, but its a great read. actually both were awesome. chuck definitely has a very negative and dark outlook on society. in both novels he explores how trapped humanity is due to the unnecessary demands put on us by society. and in both novels the protagonist breaks free from the stupidity of life through some very dramatic changes. he also throws around the idea of power, and how we can resist it, and how it can be gained through unconventional ways. chuck's voice is very evident, which made it fun to read them back to back. so if you're looking for a summer read, pick them up.
