I can't be bothered to put a real name, email address, or any sort of contact information like a messenger account. I post a "question" in my first post to start a "buzz" about a product.
The plus side is this - since I didn't bother to put any real information to identify me as a real person, I'm giving the owner of this board permission to completely warp my words - because since there is no link to a real person - there is no risk of slander or libel.
So - I'd just like to say, I'm a complete moron.
//edit: Don't be a lame spammer. For christ's sake you could have just posted something in the Random folder and no one would have cared - but now I'm going to make a point of deleting any ads that show up in the Random folder for a while.
Vanilla Coke came out about a week or two ago. It was announced on the Today Show, and parodied in the most hilarious way by the Daily Show.
(Reads the website)... Hmm. Sounds like someone who doesn't like his new job at Coke very much, and is trying very, very hard to be fired. I'm all for freedom of speech and everything, but if someone hasn't been given permission to tell everyone about the inner workings of his company, he really shouldn't do it-- particularly if he wishes to slam them and yet remain on their payroll.
Anyway-- not sure I'd have put this on the Wrestling Forum.
Over the course of history, the kiss of a woman has poisoned a lot of great minds.
Sounds more to me like someone had a recipe for Vanilla Cola all worked out and then got blindsided by a huge multinational that already owns half the soft-drink market introducing a similar product. This would have the net effect of making something he worked on for a few years (more than likely) worthless. Instantly.
And even if it is a formula that this guy developed 20 years ago while working for Coke, all you can say is ``them's the breaks.'' Quick, name me the Microsoft programmer who came up with the kludge that allows Win95 to run in DOS protected mode. That guy essentially saved Microsoft. Whether Microsoft treated him `right' afterwards, nobody knows, because anything he did while under their employ belongs to them. If you don't want this to be the case you have to get it in writing as you are hired. And most companies won't play that game.
Meanwhile, the idea that the product wasn't released because it had ``too much Mexican Vanilla bean, which is an aprodesiac'' is so funny I almost peed myself.
