I always wondered what this stuff meant.
DEFCON DEFense CONdition - United States Nuclear Forces: "DEFCON 5 Normal peacetime readiness
DEFCON 4 Normal, increased intelligence and strengthened security measures
DEFCON 3 Increase in force readiness above normal readiness
DEFCON 2 Further Increase in force readiness, but less than maximum readiness
DEFCON 1 Maximum force readiness."

Welcome to DEF CON, the Largest Underground Hacking Convention in the World

William J. Flake

I always wondered about the name Snowflake, AZ.

Utah Valley State College

UVSC is a glorified high school.

I graduated from there, but I started out at the U. I transferred to UVSC because it was closer to home.

See: Utah Valley State College - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "UVSC students are sometimes criticized as being 'BYU-rejects' or 'Wannabes', because of the close proximity of UVSC to Brigham Young University in Provo."

Burrito Joynt � menu

Awesome. I stole this coupon for Burrito Joynt: "We Deliver Everyday"

I stole it from my sister. She knew I wanted it and said I could take it so I guess I didn't really steal it.

Nestle - water

I noticed the other day a Nestle brand of water. I thought they already had Deer Park, why do they need other brands?

7 Up - the missing key

I see now how 7-up can be owned by Cadbury-Schweppes, but distriputed by others.

See: 7 Up - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

"After establishing the category as more than a niche, major competitors set their sights on it such as The Coca-Cola Company with its Sprite brand introduced in 1961. Sprite would not challenge 7 Up's position seriously until the 1980s when Coke forced its major bottlers then distributing 7 Up to drop the beverage in deference to Sprite. 7 Up then became dependent on Pepsi's bottlers for distribution during the 1990s until PepsiCo launched its own serious entrant in the category with Sierra Mist in 2000. PepsiCo then adopted the previous Coca-Cola tactic and forced its bottlers to give up 7 Up for Sierra Mist which most did by 2003.
The result is that in the United States, DPSU does not have a network of bottlers and distributors, so some of their products are frequently bottled under contract by independent Coca-Cola or Pepsi bottlers, though in some areas independent distributors exist, either by Cadbury-Schweppes, or by individual independent bottling plants. These third-tier bottlers do not have the ability to reach much beyond major supermarket chains, so 7 Up is increasingly difficult to find in smaller stores and vending machines.
PepsiCo continues to distribute 7 Up in Canada, in lieu of Sierra Mist;"

Cadbury Schweppes

I love Cadbury Schweppes. I did some reasearch on them a while back. They came up the other day. I just went to thier site and looked over thier brands!

  • 7 UP
  • A&W Root Beer
  • Bazooka
  • Canada Dry
  • RC Cola
  • Sunkist
  • Trident
