I was just about to go brush my teeth, but I don't have any watermelon juice in the house   :mad:
Over the past few decades there has been a redistribution of dignity upward. The Republicans valorized entrepreneurs, CEOs and Wall Street. The Democratic Party became dominated by people in the creative class, who attended competitive colleges, moved to affluent metro areas, married each other and ladled advantages onto their kids so they could leap even farther ahead. There was a bipartisan embrace of a culture of individualism, which opens up a lot of space for people with resources and social support but means loneliness and abandonment for people without. Four years of college became the definition of the good life, which left roughly two-thirds of the country out. And so came the crisis that Biden was elected to address the poisonous combination of elite insularity and vicious populist resentment. A group of people so enraged by a lack of respect that they are willing to risk death by Covid if they get to stick a middle finger in the air against those who they think look down on them. They are willing to torch our institutions because they are so resentful against the people who run them. The Democratic spending bills are economic packages that serve moral and cultural purposes. They should be measured by their cultural impact, not merely by some wonky analysis. In real, tangible ways, they would redistribute dignity back downward. They would support hundreds of thousands of jobs for home health care workers, child care workers, construction workers, metal workers, supply chain workers. They would ease the indignity millions of parents face having to raise their children in poverty.  David Brooks NYT 2021

I don't like watermelon flavor so much, but still enjoy it's fruit form very occasionally cause it's fun to eat. Watermelon juice reminds me of used dishwater.

Nothing like the far superior guava.

Take any fruit that's not fresh, it tastes like dishwater.

i'd say water does not contain sugar, making it better for someone like me that drink a few liters of it every day and is overweight already, and it also is cheaper but watermelon is nice yes, even keeps itself under ambient temperatures with no electricity

I don't understand why anyone drinks water. It's always baffled me that on every single desk I encounter, there's a bottle on it SPECIFICALLY for containing the stuff, so that people can keep drinking it all day long. Kinda revolting in a way.

I hate water. Why not just drink something that's tastier? Even if that is mostly water, it's better than just water alone. Water is for washing you socks in and fox fish to make love in. That **** shouldn't be for drinking.

When I was a kid I used to eat almost the whole thing. My parents rarely let me get a watermelon. Like it was never a couple days in a row. :D
I would eat until I got a tummy ache, then I'd run to the bathroom to pee every 30 minutes.

Sparkly water is water, ruined. It just makes it so much worse! Just gives it that nasty acidity without anything to balance it, and the bubbles are really harsh in carbonated water. I may not like normal water but at least I can actually drink it. Sparkly water feels like it doesn't want to be drunk.

Also, Pepsi is not as good as Coke. Too sugary-tasting, and more synthetic as well. Coke still tastes vaguely natural somewhere; like really really heavily sweetened tea or something. Pepsi tastes like thinned, synthetic molasses.

Or, in Imperial units; "I done got me 157 dead gooks killed, and 50 water buffalos too, them are all certified."

It is funny, I love carbonated drinks, but when my daughter was about 2 or 3 years old, we were out somewhere and people were drinking soft drinks. She wanted to taste Sprite so we gave her a glass. She took a sip, made a face, and started sticking her tongue out and going "ugh ugh"

We asked what was the matter and she said "it makes my mouth feel .... so .... so .... sprite" and she has never liked carbonated drinks since. Not soft drinks, sparkling water, not beer, none of them. In college, she spent a summer in France and her 3-4 main companions all liked champagne so she drank that fairly often with them, and tolerated it, but still didn't like the carbonation.

How can this be? There is a tremendous amount of bad fruit out there, and almost anything sitting in a store was picked far too early, but a perfectly ripe piece of fruit is exquisite.

Even a fruit that I usually don't "like" in a less-than-perfect state of ripeness can still be amazing on that one day when it is at its peak.

I don't really get it either. Fruits are much more accessible than things like vegetables IMO.

See, watermelon is one of the fruits I don't get all that much. It's so dilute that it tastes a bit weird to me. It's okay, I'll have it if it's offered, but I never understood the hype myself. I'm more of a berry and banana man myself.

This is a good example. I feel certain that you have never had a truly good, ripe, rich, dark red, home-grown watermelon. The piece of fruit shown in the "thin" video below shows a worthless cut of light pink unripe fruit that would not be worth eating.

And, by the way, watermelon IS a berry.

I second this. Here in Brazil we get plenty opportunity to eat family-business-grown fruits and it's the best thing ever. Watermelon is one of my favourites no questions.

Only thing I don't have access to are those japanese cubic watermelons which I am dying to taste.

from what i have read and seen those are normal watermelons grown in boxes, it was meant to cut down on transport because cubes fit nicer than spheres in a truck, but the production is much harder (so expensive) and they are often still green inside when harvested, so yeah nice decoration but i would not recommend importing one to Brazil to taste :)

So these watermelon are basically minecraft blocks that taste bad. Goddamnit. I was hoping they tasted delicious

A **** sandwich is still a **** sandwich, fohat. Accept it. Watermelon is a poor fruit.

Also, I don't have any problems with water, I drink water frequently when I'm thirsty, of course, but I don't get this obsession with carrying around water or using water bottles. If you're going to drink water, get it out of the tap like a normal person.

And another thing. We have diet pop. Diet pop is water but with flavour and texture and ****. It's perfectly fine for you and doesn't even kill your teeth. And it's 71 cents for a ****ing two liter here. Why not just go all in on diet pop?!

Over the past few decades there has been a redistribution of dignity upward. The Republicans valorized entrepreneurs, CEOs and Wall Street. The Democratic Party became dominated by people in the creative class, who attended competitive colleges, moved to affluent metro areas, married each other and ladled advantages onto their kids so they could leap even farther ahead. There was a bipartisan embrace of a culture of individualism, which opens up a lot of space for people with resources and social support but means loneliness and abandonment for people without. Four years of college became the definition of the good life, which left roughly two-thirds of the country out. And so came the crisis that Biden was elected to address the poisonous combination of elite insularity and vicious populist resentment. A group of people so enraged by a lack of respect that they are willing to risk death by Covid if they get to stick a middle finger in the air against those who they think look down on them. They are willing to torch our institutions because they are so resentful against the people who run them. The Democratic spending bills are economic packages that serve moral and cultural purposes. They should be measured by their cultural impact, not merely by some wonky analysis. In real, tangible ways, they would redistribute dignity back downward. They would support hundreds of thousands of jobs for home health care workers, child care workers, construction workers, metal workers, supply chain workers. They would ease the indignity millions of parents face having to raise their children in poverty.  David Brooks NYT 2021

Coconut water? has electrolyte  that give you Energy
I don't like the flavored drinks or carbonation , would much rather have wine than beer (Yes I am underage) because beer tastes too ... starchy? and the foam/bubbles is annoying
