    they probably have aswell knowing how fat some kids are today.

    Parents serve bars of chocolate as a meal and not a snack or an occasional treat.

    but then again. any kid with pocketmoney could walk into a shop and buy a shitload of chocolate to binge on for a few quid

    When I was younger I used to love crisps. Walkers ftw!! But I didn't eat them for about 6 years, and when I did they tasted completely different. It's the same with loads of foods. Gawddamn these "new improved recipes!!"

    Sometimes its not the the recipe thats different. its the manufacturing that makes it TASTE different....

    For example... have a taste of coke thats made in the UK. then taste coke thats made from places like Russia or Asian/Arabic countries. Cola thats made in the UK will have more of a sharper taste then the others.

    Im quite partial to a Wham Bar, oh how i miss Irn Bru bars!
    Freddo Bars are now 20p the shame of it.

    +1 to Noiseblocker they make great fans if you want an alternative to Noctua.

    Aaah, didn't think of that. Yea we get the Turkish coke and fanta from my local takeaway they taste completely different for English.
    I used to work at an Ice Cream Factory. I can tell you one thing - working there makes ice cream taste completely different :laugh: especially when you see how much oil and grease goes into the Tesco's Rocky Road and Marshmallow ice cream :shadedshu

    Mate want to know why that is, its the different water sources. Ive been to the Coca Cola bottling plant at East Kilbride. Also why bottles and cans taste different is to do with pressure. Mc Donalds and pubs taste shit because they choose themselves how much to mix the stuff.

    EDIT: ASDA had to change the name of thier "ice cream" to frozen vanilla flavoured yoghurt. True story, dunno if they changed the recipe to make it "ice cream" again.

    It got mixed reviews. It's not bad, but it's not great either. Fun though, have you played it?

    Quick go on the 360, didn't think it was terrible but i didn't think it was great either. Felt a bit weighty and the graphics at least on the 360 are blurry. Its a bit like mirrors edge and shadowrun.
    Ive also watched a few gameplays on youtube.

    how can it be like mirrors edge then?, that game was amazing if you don't mind the lack of mindless shooting you get in other games

    Temps are the same at idle usage due to me using C&Q, temps have always sat around 28 - 30c I've yet to spend some time gaming or stress testing but I'm hopeful nonetheless, and yeah that's Akasa TIM cleaner, should I be worried? aha.

    I didn't really like mirrors edge to much just endless of the same thing, but yes its a sort of free running aspect.

    EDIT: I just use isopropyl alcohol.
