Comment I can't use much Aspartame without reactions. (Score 1) 630 630

I used to drink 2-3 44-oz diet pepsi cups every day. I soon was having seizures that sent me to the ER a couple of times. After months of trying to figure out what was causing the problem, I eliminated Aspartame and within 2 weeks all of the symptoms disappeared. So I am glad to see Aspartame being used less. Obviously, diet drinks of any sort are not healthful, for reasons mentioned by Calzones and others above, but it's still good to know market pressure can drive companies to dump FDA-approved additives for what the public experience has determined is a safer alternative.

Comment My plan went up for new subscribers... (Score 5, Informative) 136 136

My 10GB shared plan currently costs $80/month. The new rate jumps up to $100 for the same 10GB. In order to get any cheaper than my current $80 I would need to drop down to 6GB for $70. Not a bargain of an idea in my opinion.


Submission + - Bush Admits Imigration Bill is "Amnesty."->

SSonnentag writes: White House spokesman Tony Snow said President Bush "misspoke" Tuesday when he told a group, "You know, I've heard all the rhetoric — you've heard it, too — about how this is amnesty. Amnesty means that you've got to pay a price for having been here illegally, and this bill does that." See the video here:
