Prizes for Babies

In Russia's central province on Wednesday, couples were encouraged to skip work and help boost the country's birth rate. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* Exactly nine months from then on June 12, prizes such as an apartment will be issued to women who give birth.

Win a prize? What a wonderful reason for having a child! Hm... I'm reminded vaguely of 1984's concept of service to your country....

Big Jones Energy Drink Review

Drink: Big Jones Energy Drink
Official Site:
Jones Soda

As a huge fan of Jones Soda, I expected the tastiness the company generally offers in its drinks to transfer to their energy drink offering. Instead, I was greeted by a head-jerkingly bad taste. I could barely down the bitter concoction enough to write the review. No amount of energy could compensate for the nastiness of the drink itself.

Summary: Don't drink unless you want your taste buds burned off.
Final Score: 1 out of 5


I've been getting consumed by life lately. I just have too much to do. However... I feel incredibly guilty about letting this blog go un-updated for so long. So I've decided to change strategies. I'll still post energy drink reviews. However, as far as the news portions are concerned, I plan to make the postings more like Slashdot. Writing full out summaries was just too tiring. Better something than nothing. Hopefully, this will be the last time you get an apology post from me.
