Comment Re:As a dentist who treats patients with Mt. Dew (Score 1) 362

yeah, bathing one's teeth in it all day can't be good, especially since most people don't brush during the middle of the day, so the food and drink residue just sits there.
However, I figure that person has more problems than just that, I bet they don't even brush morning and/or evening.
Summer 2011, I often fell asleep without brushing, and had 10+ cavities by fall. That's bad, but the teeth were/are still there, so I figure that person was behaving worse than I did for longer than I did.

Commentators talked about the momentum shift, and then that happened.

Yeah, if the spread was Baltimore by 3 or less, this would affect the betting outcome but not the game outcome, which makes sense as a lower-impact way to 'fix' it. However, most spreads I saw were San Francisco by 4. Maybe the attempt to 'fix' it went wrong, maybe it was about some side bet.

I get 8g as 40 200mg tablets for $4.
I buy them because they're cheaper and more portable than energy drinks, not necessarily to avoid the other stuff in energy drinks, but avoiding that doesn't hurt.
Highly caffeinated soda is cheaper than energy drinks, but more expensive than tablets. I often drink diet soda for the taste and for when I want a smaller dose of caffeine.

The trouble with money is it costs too much!
