Re: OK I finally had with binge drinking soda.

Ketogenic diet just replace sugar with fat. You have to get your energy from somewhere and fat and alcohol are the only other sources available.

Re: OK I finally had with binge drinking soda.

The problem is you're breaking two physically taxing addictions at once. Caffeine, likely the more serious, and high doses of HFCSyrup. You may have better luck drinking caffeine free sodas first. When I realized caffeine was causing a cycle of migranes and mood issues for me I stopped and had a ful...

I just binge-read the thread and I'm not convinced anyone other than one or two outliers is hating on the iPhone. Mostly, just poking the two leading gushers to enjoy the twitching.

Well wrist pain isn't directly carpal tunnel. Yes gaming can increase the likelyhood of the problem, not everyone will experience it. If you want to know if you have it go to a doctor and he'll forcefully finger poke the vein that gets damaged. If you punch him after he does it you have carpal tunne...

Last time I checked facial recognition can be done on any computing device. I'm not sure why you're convinced it can only be done with specialized hardware.
