I came across this gem at a gas station last week. I thought it was some kind of special can celebration at first, but realized if that would have been the case, it would have been that classic bland white can I remembered as a child during the 80s.

Pepsi-Cola Throwback actually refers to the recipe. The original version before the times of High Fructose Corn Syrup. This one is made with sugar, like it was meant to be.

Pepsi has had some complete debacles over the past decade. Pepsi Twist which was nothing short of Pepsi with a touch of Raid roach killer, and then the abominable Pepsi Blue, but this one is a winner. Its more refreshing than today's Pepsi, and makes me hope that it will stick around permanently.

In fact Pepsi should replace its original with Throwback... which is actually the real original. Corn Syrup replaced sugar because at one point in time, it was cheaper... that isn't the case anymore. so whats the hold up?

Forget Corn Syrup, Aspartame, Sorbitol, and Splenda. Sugar is how it was meant to be. Its natural, and better for you than all of that lab created BS. If you don't want to be fat, then just work out. Soda isn't water, its a leasure beverage. I think people have forgotten that in today's culture.

Ah, I'll look for it in the 12 packs then. I've been preferring coke over pepsi for years now. Maybe this throwback flavor will make me switch. The only downside of coke to me is how flipping carbonated it is compared to pepsi.

      I watched "Dragon Blade" this weekend. A great Jackie Chan movie, mostly subtitled. Really depressing and really good. The pacing of the movie was amazing to me. So much happened in 2 hours that it felt like some epic trilogy condensed down to 1 movie with all the boring parts removed.

      I'm starting to get really good with Genji. I got gold in eliminations several times tonight, and carried at 51% kill participation in one of my matches. And with a buff to his ult in the pipeline, I won't have to worry about my fun getting nerfed for a while. There are few things that feel amazing in this game. Hooking airborne Phara with Roadhog, Hooking Tracer with Roadhog, Killing a good Zarya period, and deflecting an ult back at the enemy team with Genji... because I totally got McCree good.

      That feeling soloing the boss with corpses cheering you on, because everyone else fell to their death on Thaumanova Reactor, and the boss has 30% HP left. I did it for the first time since the change. The heat room isn't that bad when done as a group. But having to do 4 rooms now makes it my least favorite even more so. I also had to do the Not So Secret JP again for Astralaria. WTF? Not So Secret and SW? The two worst JP in the game for this journey.

      My car is screwed up. It has an overheating issue but it doesn't show it as an issue. The radiator fan wont turn on unless my AC or heater is on. No check engine light or anything. After a long diagnosis at a dealership, they've concluded that the computer in the car itself is failing and needs to be replaced. Never had that happen to a car before. Its a hefty bill to get that swapped out. I could go cheap and buy a used part off ebay for $30-100 but I don't see the point when theres no way to test the damn things accurately considering mine is reading as functioning normally. wtf. Instead of trading in the car, I'll foot the $1k bill next week when the get the part in. I really don't want another car payment at this point.

      I feel sorry for anyone that wanted to buy a NES classic at retail price. The last of them will be shipped out til the end of the month. Never wanted one myself, but a lot of friends did. This is why emulators will always be a thing.
