      I think it's a good drink,but not my best.

      Coca Cola Zero is a Coca Cola product, that is claimed to have 0 sugar. It has the same characteristics as any Coca Cola beverage, only that it doesn't have sugar. This makes it highly marketable, because , nowadays, people pay much more attention on what they eat or drink.
      I don't recall when I had my first Coca Cola, but I DO recall when I drank the first Cola Light. It was good overall, but I just couldn't get over that taste.It has something specific,I can't describe its taste. At first,I though it was me,but as I bought more and more bottles,I knew that that's the drinks taste. Anyway,this doesn't bother me now.I still sense the different taste,but I can cope with it rather good.

      I did a little bit o research on what sweetener did Cola Diet use,because you could still sense the sweetness.It may had no sugar,but what sweetener did it have? Turns out they switched from a sweetener to another. They used sucrose(tablesugar),sucralose,aspartame, and even fructose!I have seen many many drinks that contain fructose.Fructose is a carbohydrate that doesn't need insulin in order to be metabolized.This means that,although it won't make you fat by using other carbs, there is no limit(aside from plain diffusion) on what could your fructose limit would be. This in turn can make you fat.
      I also found out that some Diet Cokes still contain traces of saccharin,and this explains the metallic taste,But,fortunately,saccharin has almost no caloric energy,so this is OK.
      Also,what I found out by accident using Coke Diet, is that it react very very bad with Mentos.I had some in my mouth and when I tried to drink(I didn't know about the ongoing sensation with this combination) I became a human fountain!After seeing this I decided to test other Coke and Pepsi products,to see if the result is confirmed by some,or even any of it.he result?No.Just Diet Coke reacted that violently.

      This site helps me earning some money

      When I heard about Mylot,I was in the period of time where I would look everywhere for a site that would pay me for activity, like reviews, comments, clicks and so on. After I lost all luck regarding "Pay to Click" sites, other review sites( Except this one, hehe) and others, I stumbled upon upon this.
      At first, I thought it would be just like any other site on the web. Hard work, intense activity, clicks by clicks only to realize, at the end of the month, that you finally made 30 cents, when you could get out there and get a REAL job. I must say I was a little bit skeptical regarding the site.

      Although I had my skepticism, I saw some good opportunities to participate. I talked where I could give my honest opinion. I even started some topics. I even saw that I could comment on what other people said on my topic or on others' topic. "Well,that's not bad".
      The thing that I didn't understand at the beginning was why I wasn't getting paid. I answered at about 20 topics, I created myself another 5, I commented on what others said, but I still didn't see a penny. I kind of lost hope and logged out. The other day, I logged on and I saw I earned 30 cents. WOW! 30 cents for an hours' work. After that, I decided to be more active. And more active.

      Now, although I don't spend all my day on MyLot, I can say that it gives you good money. It's minimum payout is 10$,it's maximum one is 100$, and it can be delivered by PayPal.
      The only downside I found using MyLot is that some discussions are erased from the database,with no warning whatsoever.Although this is rare,it has happened about 3 times to me.And if a discussion you participated in is erased,you automatically lose the money you received for your participation.The most frequently erased discussions are those related to how to earn money on Mylot,and the questions about MyLot's payment system.

      I won't recommend using it though if you try to earn serious amounts of money.I see this site as an opportunity to have fun,post my answers,question,discussions and receive a bonus for my participation. It's like I'm having fun and I am getting paid to do so. I view it as "Get paid for having fun" rather than "Have fun just for payment". I definitely trust this site!

        Great movie to watch,I would most definitely recommend this to everyone.

        The movie depicts the last ten days spent by Hitler in his bunker, trying to sort the war in a way.
        What is interesting about this movie is that it isn't just another Hitler movie,like tons and tons of other,with suppositions on what it could've happened back then.
        It starts with the statement of Traudl Junge, Hitler's most youngest secretary. This aids in creating an image of credibility around the story. Traudl Junge is the main actor of this film, and the movie revolves around her, her emotions are felt throughout the movie. When watching the movie, we "see" with her eyes, feel what she felt.
        Hitler's days were numbered. The Russian army was invading Germany,reaching Berlin. In the bunker, Hitler made some completely irrational moves, rendering entire armies useless. One of the field marshals said :"The Fuhrer has lost all sense of reality.He is moving divisions that no longer exist. Steiner's army was dissipated, yet Steiner must attack,this is madness!"
        What struck me was the loyalty of Hitler's men. Although they knew that there is nothing they could possibly do, they didn't work Hitler behind his back, they just stood there, defending what's left to defend.
        Another scene that moves me is when Hitler is finally informed that Steiner's army is unable to do anything.He then asks everybody to leave,except four of his commanders. He then proceeds to launching a tirade against his commanders. You could really feel Hitler's anger, the shame of the commanders, the crowd outside feeling remorseful. There are just some of the movie parts.
        What I found later is that the movie has some deleted scenes. For example, when Krebs,one of the commanders, tries to negotiate with Chuikov, the Russian commander. The movie shows Krebs walking the streets accompanied by some men, and then skips to him talking to Chuikov.Another deleted scene is when some Russian ladies enter the bunker and find the bodies of Krebs and Burgdorf, another commander. There are just some of the deleted scenes.
        Nonetheless, those scene don't add important details regarding the story.
        The movie ends with the German soldiers throwing their weapons,surrendering. The ending also shows the struggle of Traudl, who walks past the Russians, not being able to stand them. She is helped by a boy, who she leaves with.


        Overall, the movie is worth watching.It is one of the movies I enjoy the most.I can't even remember how many times I watched it.

        The game lives up to its name.You need to be very careful when playing.

        Well, the game clearly isn't for the faint of heart. When I first got into it I didn't know where I was getting myself into. At first,everything was OK, except for that man(who I found out was like a God- mister G) who kept creeping around and looking.
        The storyline is OK, using a lot of Sci-Fi terms, that haven't been coined yet(such as resonance cascade, anti-mass spectrometer) and exploring in detail things that haven't been discovered.
        It all gets twisted when the troops dispatched to clarify the situation start shooting all they see,in an attempt to cover-up the accident that occured.
        The end has two ways.Or you choose G's invitation, in this case teleporting to safety,or you don't and then you are thrown somewhere in front of a "battle you can't win".

        Either way,you can consider playing this if you want to seek a thrill. I can guarantee it will have many moments where it will scare you!I know I had some...a lot of moments.

        I would like to play it until the game doesn't work!

        I don't think I have played a more exciting and rewarding game than Need For Speed Most Wanted.It's graphics are stunning,the gameplay is awesome,all toped with a plausible story.
        The story starts with you having a very powerful car and beating down enemies one at a time,until you qualify to challenge the Black List member number 15.I personally got a feeling from the very start that he was going to sabotage my car and wreck it,and possibly take it. Sure enough,that was the case.I felt,from that moment,I had to finish the game and beat him.I didn't get that feeling from other racing games.
        The story also presents a number of NPC's,but they don't get along with each other.
        At the end you get your vengeance,which felt quite good.

        The graphics and movements are surreal,from my point of view.I like how it moves,reacts and plays.
        The only thing that I dislike about the game is at it's beginning.When you get to select your car,you don't get to choose many other cars because you don't have the necessary funds.But if the system notices that you had previously installed Need For Speed Underground 2,it will reward you with extra funds.But that only worked a single time for me.

        So,yeah.Great game!I finished it 3 times now.I think I will play it for the 4'th time.:D

        A nice phone to use.

        Although I don't own a Corby now ,and although I prefer buttons than touchscreen, this phone is NOT BAD!I owned one for a couple of months and had to change it because it was stolen.
        This phone has a variety of applications that you can use not to get bored. Although I generally don't own phones fore more than talking, I got along quite nicely with Corby. I mean, yes,it's wider than other phones, but its battery holds up nicely for what it's made to do, and the menu is surprisingly easy to learn( I got that problem with some Samsung mobile phones, and since then i have looked for phones that have a "clean" menu)
        It's nice that it has the means to stay in touch with social networking sites.I quite miss this perk, me using rather old-fashioned phones.
        A nice thing is that it doesn't cost as much as other touchscreen phones cost.It's rather cheap for this type.
        To conclude,I think this phone would be a nice asset to one's pocket.

          Good phone,made more for talk than others

          People these days forget what phones were made in the first place.The phones where made to talk.Now,every state of the art phone has tons of gadgets, bigger aspects and are in general way bulkier than other phones.
          This phone is very versatile,is not so big and it's way cheaper that others. If you are looking just for a device that you want to talk with, this indeed is the best choice. It doesn't take long to master it, the battery isn't getting low that fast that you need it to recharge every night, and it doesn't take that long to recharge.
          I have changed many phones,but I always returned to this one. I like it because it's not complicated. In 5 minutes you know how to call, send messages, organize items. In about an hour you know about everything that is to be known for this phone.
          In my opinion, this is clearly a phone to keep.

          Great supplement,totally worth it.

          There are many marketed ways of taking calcium.From oxide to salts,you just can't tell what is the best way of taking this mineral supplement.
          Personally,I have a huge respect for NOW Foods,it simply just didn't let me down.I have taken many supplements besides this,all of them being from NOW,and I can say that they are to be trusted.
          This formula is a salt of citric acid and calcium,thus coming with 1 molecule of calcium at 2 molecules of citric acid.It is way better that the oxide form.I have tried many forms of calcium as a supplement,settling on the oxide form.
          Besides the calcium,it also comes with vitamin D(which has a very important role in calcium absorption),manganese,copper,zinc and magnesium.All these minerals and the vitamin D are very important in the body's well being.
          The effects of calcium administration aren't to be seen instantaneously, but in time.Actually, effects of calcium administrations are best seen when you don't take calcium at all.
          Overall, my opinion regarding this supplement is that you should trust it if you want to add calcium as your supplement.It's worth it by far!

          Overall,it is good.Just don't go over the edge with it

          Although Coca Cola tastes GREAT and its price isn't that spicy,you shouldn't get over yourselves.Anything,I mean anything that comes in large quantities is bad for you.Even water.
          You shouldn't replace water from your diet with Coca Cola.This drink was designed as a cold beverage,something that you drink on occasions.It wasn't made for daily consumption.Of course no one is going to tell you that,because then they wouldn't get so much money.
          When I first got the taste of Cola,I thought that "THIS IS IT!I will drink this forever!"I got at some point to drink 3 bottles of 2,5 liters A DAY.Of course,I couldn't sleep properly,I was just buzzing.
          Now I consume it when I want to feel its taste or when I hang out with my friends.

          Bear in mind what I said:do not use this otherwise as it's made.Drink it from time to time,just don't find yourselves drinking more Coca Cola than water.You won't like what you will get into.You will see,as you exceed the limit,that your face and fat will get ugly.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great game.I would surely recommend this to my friends

          Amnesia:The Dark Descent is a video game designed by Frictional Game.Previously known as "Lux Tenebras" and "Unknown",it is a survival horror video game.

          The game is designed as a labyrinth,where you can easily get lost.To top that,it has monsters that spawn in different places,and these monsters often patrol areas.This being said,you can't hide forever in one place.

          The first things that you get from the game is a lantern,some oil to keep the lantern lit,and some tinderboxes to light up candles that are place throughout the map.Also,some of the things you may find is a health potion(named Laudanum) for healing and a sanity potion for mental health.

          The game has some gauges:
          -one for life(resembled by a heart) which measures,with different degrees of deterioration,the health meter
          -one for sanity(resembled by a brain and spinal cord) which measures,again with different stages of deterioration,the sanity of the character
          -an oil gauge,which measures the amount of oil your character has.

          Health can decrease when attacked by different monsters or when falling and hitting.As health decreases,the screen turns red.
          Sanity can decrease when you stay in darkness,or when you stare a monster.As sanity decreases,he image starts to shake and vibrate.
          Oil decreases with lantern's use.

          What I find interesting regarding this game is that you don't have any means of defending yourself.You can't fight back.This makes you think where you can hide from specific intruders.I find this great.Thinking is good.Most horror games make you fight your way through,but not this one.You hide and hope it will pass.And the game provides a lot of places,from weak hiding places to exceptional hiding places.


          Another thing that contributes a lot to the game's play is the sound.The game has specific sounds related to the character's position.When it wanders the hallway,there is a frightening continuous music.There are some different sounds that can scare you off your seat.Like when you enter a torture room,you will hear the machines' sound and the victim's grunts.
          The most horrific sounds are when you are chased by a monster.That sounds creeps me out!It makes me unable to think properly,because it's loud and horrifying.


          The story is great.It presents a character that suffers from amnesia.During the game,you find out things that you done,or others have done.
          Personally,I tried to follow the storyline very carefully,and I didn't find any flaws related to dates or events.
          I found interesting that you can have alternate endings of the game.There are,I think,three alternate endings,related to what items you have in the inventory and what your last decisions are.



          One thing that I found rather annoying is the bugs and glitches.Sometimes,you can even hide behind a rock that you take with your hand and put it in front of you.Sometimes even with a chair with gaps on it.
          Sometimes,you can bug your character in a wall,unable to move.The best way to get over it is to start again.
          Sometimes you can block your items in a wall.


          Well,aside that,I conclude that this game is great.I played it about 4 times.It's worth every second of it!
