It seems that you misunderstood what the researchers did. They fed a set of subjects fructose-sweetened soda and another set glucose-based soda. Both table sugar and HFCS have similar amounts of both.

As for the taste, HFCS is slightly sweeter, but aside from that, any difference must come from residual elements in the sweetener. Absolutely pure sugar and HFCS would taste similarly.

Cane sugar, sucrose, is not the only sugar.

Yeah, you're right, it's the two sugars (50% fructose and 50% glucose).

And you're ignorant about what's in the American soft drinks too. The vast majority are sweetened with HFCS, which is about 55% fructose and 45% glucose, practically a wash when comparing to sugar. Both equally bad because of the fructose.

Nobody gives a FF if it's better. It's the culture of the land, you come here, you integrate. If you don't want to integrate, you should not be allowed to come here.

The whole debacle is circling around the idea that since drinking water from the water fountain is good, drinking it from a high-pressure fire hydrant is also good.

Cut him some slack, will you?

It is obvious that Tom did this pretty much useless hack to amuse himself and, maybe, to hint at the total waste of resources the emoji concept leads to.

Tom is a really nice and interesting guy, he doesn't deserve the bleating his kludge produced here, on /.

Wafer yield is an imperfect science, you can't predict it within a couple percent what it will be except if it's very high (90% and more).

Moreover, they're talking about binning the rare part that somehow hits the target speed at much lower VDD. I don't think one can estimate the chance of this occurring in a batch.

Wow, brainwashing at its finest!

You really think that the genocide against Jews and Gypsies was the central piece of WW2? Really? WW2 has been a horrendous event, but the genocide played only a minor part to it.

To believe that Germany's reason to go to war consisted in exterminating the Jews shows just how brainwashing works over long periods of time.

We all like praise, but a hike in our pay is the best kind of ways.
