Greaterdivinity Nothing like making extremely dated references to a short-lived cartoon based off of a raunchy indie movie from the early 90s to spice up your podcast.

Zulika_Mi_Nam Pandalulz breetoplay hugmonster Yep, they have those in California and here in PA too!
Now, if I could just get my Diet Squirt here in Philly, I'd be so happy! :D

It's here in Atlanta, you just have to look a little harder. As an Atlantan living in Coke land though, I get super burnt out on Coke and my weapon of choice is Throwback Mt Dew instead, but I'm trying really hard to quit soda anyway. I'd rather quit cold-turkey than go diet (I drink a lot of black coffee).

Pandalulz breetoplay hugmonster Here in Miami you can get the Mexican versions of coke which do not have corn syrup in them -in a glass bottle that has real cap on it.
Not sure if is that available elsewhere, but it has been spreading like wildfire down here over the past few years.

breetoplay hugmonster I love those Coke Freestyle machines in Pei Wei.  I do caffeine free diet cherry and vanilla coke.
I also was on a kick for a long time of mixing vodka and diet vanilla coke.

I like both of you just a little bit more now that I know you've both seen the Clerks animated show. I routinely use that reference but sadly am greeted with blank faces all too often : (

breetoplay hugmonster But if you're ok with the sugar, I accidentally stumbled across a bottle of Throwback Vanilla Pepsi the other day and it was like heaven.  You could actually taste the vanilla and it didn't taste like some weird chemical concoction.  Throwback stuff is amazing because it's actually less sweet tasting than the real cornsyrup thing.

TSW Ultimate Edition is only $20 right now.  I think that's everything but the last few Tokyo things.  You can just apply the key straight to your current account.

Esoteric Coyote Wait, black cherry coke zero?  What is this voodoo creation I have not seen around here?  Must look for it around here.

hugmonster Oh man, vanilla coke is my jam. I'd rather not have the zero, but drinking all that sugar would not be good! :D
CocaCola, you can make the checks out to Mo! <3

I like black cherry coke zero, but I almost never get it anymore.  The local grocery store has a soda brands I like and it's like 3/5th the price of coke, so that's what I get most of the time. And I never get diet anymore because Hubby's recommend diet includes no artificial sweeteners... In fact no high fructose corn syrup either so the only option I have is the cane sugar local brand that is still cheaper than coke...  Do you know how hard it is i to avoid high fructose corn syrup?!  Not to mention the rest of the massive "Don't eat this" list.  In short, I drink a lot less soda and a lot more water XD  I don't know where I was going with this, I just kind of rambling because I woke up at 5am and didn't get much sleep.

I'll throw my name in the pot for for the original GW. Never actually finished any of the story lines but always wanted to. I blame my alt-a-holic self and the fact I liked most of their classes.

That's an awful gif to look at first thing in the morning. I sat here for over a minute just waiting to see what was going to happen once it got fully zoomed in.
My brains not awake yet =/

Well, the MassivelyOP Instagram's most obvious use would be to post the staff's personal screenshots they feel are worth sharing and selections from One Shots. Their insistence on only allowing uploads from mobile devices and the 4:3 aspect ratio might not gel well with the fact that all these screens are probably coming from a widescreen PC monitor.
I don't know. I don't use the dern thing. Dern facebooks.

I'd love to play Guild Wars 1 with MOP readers and staff! I didn't play GW1 back in the day, and a year or so ago I bought the whole set because I was completely lost when it came to lore in GW2. Sadly, literally the first thing I saw in chat was a bunch of people mocking GW2 players and people like me who come into "their" game knowing nothing but GW2. As you can imagine, that wasn't super encouraging for me, and to this day my highest character is level 4. I'm sure I just had an unfortunate first impression of the community, and I've always wanted to get back in, but I haven't found the motivation so far.
If you do end up putting something together, just let me know when and what level I need to be and I'll be there if I can!

breetoplay Quincha I don't think you guys were wrong in your assessment though. We were all standing around /shrugging after watching that teaser trailer. Love it when you guys tell it like it is.

Vanilla Coke Zero? That sounds like the worst thing since I googled Ambrosia Salad after seeing it mentioned in the Massively Overheard widget.

Quincha Yeah, you guys will have to forgive the GW2 stuff -- we recorded on Monday afternoon before everything was known. :D
