I'm now at 15,400 points, I've got another 8 bags of this Doritos chile limon dinamita to go thru, looks too hot, a trash bag seems the only way to properly dispose of them, yuck, I tried flushing down the drain, that took a good amount of effort, not worth repeating, but then at 250 points a bag, that's why I got them, if I'd had another choice I would have gone that way instead.

I`m sure this will be hidden or deleted. But lets try getting some common sense out. I can`t believe not one person has talked to Vic about health issues related to his consumption of several big bottles of Diet Mountain Dew, and at very least several full bags of Doritos daily. I checked what the average male daily calorie intake should be. That is 2 500 calories, or someone that is morbidly obese, as high as 3 200 calories. And that is just to maintain there weight. If those bags of Doritos are 9.75 ounces. then that is roughly 1 600 calories per bag. That means 2 bags are for the most part the daily intake. And I`m sure there are other negative things associated to this. Like sodium intake, Trans fats, etc. I know some will say..."don`t read this post, if you can`t be positive", or "nobody is holding a gun to your head to read these posts",....etc. But really, if your care about Vic. How come not one of you have even tried to talk like a friend and stepped up to the plate and say the obvious. Plus Vic, I`m sure with all the money that you`ve spent on Diet Mountain Dew, and Doritos, that you have already bought at least 1/2 that X Box already. If this gets hidden(like last time I posted in here). Please let me know what rule I`ve broken in Vic Journal(4th installment). There is nothing negative that I have posted(no insults, rudeness,etc.) , just posting data and common sense.

If anyone thinks I'm going to drink all that sugar no way, I like the Diet Stuff better, the regular stuff, too much is too much. Sure I have 1 bottle of Code Red, that I'll drink, since I've not had that in a long time, beyond that, just cause I bought it, doesn't mean I'll consume it, I might like MD, but not that much.

Edit: I have a stapler and refills on the way via Amazon, should be here around the 14th, once I have the numbers, the bags are as good as sealed, and a trash bag can take it from there.

Scruff wasn't talking about "full fat" Mountain Dew, which undoubtedly contains horrendous amounts of sugar, but about diet Mountain Dew, which contains all sorts of other things that are just as bad for you as sugar, but in different ways. It is well worth reading the link that Scruff supplied, here it is again:
https://www.isitbadforyou.com/questions/is-diet-mountain-dew-bad-for-you
Looking at the list of issues relating to the ingredients I would hazard a guess that some of your current "health issues" are caused, or aggravated, by your consumption of Diet Mountain Dew.

As I said a long time ago, this campaign is not about the charitable giving away of a number of x-boxes, but about increasing the sales of two items of junk food, and so increasing the profits of two already rich companies.

OA is not caused by any sort of soda, nor are injuries related to a broken bone or from surgery or hip or right shoulder dislocations, nor bad eyesight, thyroid, just cause I'm heavy does not mean I was ever a big consumer, but of course not everyone is the same Rob Smith. Except for 3 molars which were drilled and filled before I was 10yrs old, I have all My adult teeth, and no cavities either.

Give away, another chance for a Xbox One X console maybe.

At $570US after taxes/shipping for Xbox One X console I think there are more adults involved than you ever knew or even guessed. I push that to a $6,000US LG 65" OLED 4k TV. Yep definitely a kids game. Har...

Gaming advocacy group: The average gamer is 31, and most play on a console
The average age of someone who plays games is 31 years old. In fact, more gamers are over the age of 36 than between the ages of 18 to 35 or under the age of 18. They are also mostly men, but by a slimming margin. Men make up 52 percent.

But those aren't the only health issues listed are they?
What about dehydration - not good if you are suffering from any sort of kidney or bladder problems, and very often confused with other things.
What about headaches, chest pains, shortness of breath - I'm sure you've mentioned some of these recently.
What about difficult getting to sleep and staying asleep? Again something you've mentioned recently.
The list goes on and on, and includes things like causing obesity, which also includes reducing the ability to reduce obesity - that's something you have been struggling to do for as long as long as I've known you.
I forgot triggering joint pain - you are a long term joint pin sufferer, so consuming anything that may trigger joint pain is a bad move.
And upsetting the insulation cycle - this is not good in anybody, insulin is a naturally occurring hormone, and disturbing the natural cycle can have all sorts of unpleasant consequences, many of which don't show for some time.


I too once tried to get rid of some Doritos by dumping them into water, it was quite a shock to see how much they swelled up before I could get them to break up - I can't help thinking this is why I feel bloated after eating a small UK pack (never mind one of those large packs I saw in a fuel station shop last time I was in the US).

Make that 3 bottles drained, I'm at 16,900 points, and 37th place, I'd sunk to 40th place before this posting, and the floor is at 12,600, so far, I may add more points later today, nope I have not drank much, the bottles would go down the drain no matter what, this is easier.

No dehydration here.
Headaches? Chest pains?

I have 2 hernias, do those count, one is My left rib cage, the other is part of My stomach is above My diaphragm.
I have a super hard bed and a cat.
Too much movement of My right ankle and I can't walk or drive.
My left ankle and leg were operated on, and the left never gets more than painful, weird.
I'm not diabetic, type 1 or 2, I don't consume enough sugar. Most of what I eat is naturally low in carbs.

I've got 3 bags clipped, when the stapler and it's 5000 refills gets here, they will be stapled shut, and put in a large trash bag.

I got a B+ in Health Class years ago in High School, so yes I paid attention, plus I do know how to cook, if I wanted to or felt like doing so.

What!
Are computer games only for adults/children?
I have played many computer games together with my grandchildren.
They like theme just as I like them.
Elder Scrolls, Skyrim in particular.
STALKER, An Ukrainian game about Tjernobyl.
City and empire building such as Roman, Greece and Egyptian.

I used to keep a twelve pack of Mtn Dew in my car's trunk, and it never froze, even in the dead of winter. Tells you something...

What ever happened to the Cool Ranch taco at Taco Bell? The nacho one is still there.

I don't know, but if I go to Taco Bell, I generally stick with the mini-quesadillas on the dollar menu.

I'm at 18,100 points and now in 35th place out of 50, the floor is at 13,700 points, 9 more bottles to drain in the sink and 9 more bags to open, I'm glad I have a lot of bag clips, and a stapler w/5000 refills on the way, not to mention a few 35 gallon trash bags, I use trash bags normally for trash, as do most, since our trash goes in a bin.

@ Admiral Gloval: I've no idea, the nearest Taco Bell/KFC is in Lenwood, Barstow is between Yermo and Lenwood, most here in Yermo like Jack in the Box.

I'm glad you are having fun with this contest!

Eric has really cut down on Mountain Dew over the past few years, so I'm sorry I haven't been able to contribute to your point count. I love Cool Ranch Doritos, but I never buy them because I know how weak I am. If I encounter them at parties, I have to force myself to walk away from the bowl.

Hit the wrong quote. Meant to hit this one.
