Sunday Snapshot: What The Hell Am I Drinking?

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about a formula.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Confirmed on a couple of sites – did not know that it is a molecule with only C, H, N, and O in it – I wonder what part of it gives the punch of attention. So – pure organic molecule. As much as I hate those words when applied by ignoramuses to everything, ‘pure’ and ‘organic’ will be what I tell anyone who says caffeine is bad for you. Doesn’t even contain arsenic!

    Forgot to mention I’m sitting here drinking First (Diet) Coke, how I start the day. Second Coke comes after First nap, and usually breakfast.

      Does your Diet Coke have aspartame under that or any other name? I know you’ll research it, but I seem to recall some noise about it being bad for your concentration. That was a while ago, though.

        I consume aspartame as one of my regular daily input – sugar is so far worse for my concentration they’re not even in the same universe.

        Eat sugar = lose four days of being able to think.

        Eat aspartame (and I buy it pure, put it in my protein shake mixture and in my daily flax ‘tea’) = no effect.
