I love procrastinating on school projects for over two months, starting it less than a week before it's due, and getting it in half an hour before the deadline - and having it be better than that of those who worked on it throughout the two month period. Procrastination always works - even if it means you have to work on making video games from 5 a.m. to midnight every day over Christmas break, and get less than one hour of sleep two nights before it's due.
I also love writing long sentences.

Pepsi Co., facing a lawsuit from a man who claims to have found a mouse in his Mountain Dew can, has an especially creative, if disgusting, defense: their soda would have dissolved a dead mouse before the man could have found it. An Illinois man sued Pepsi in 2009 after he claims he "spat out the soda to reveal a dead mouse," the Madison County Record reports. He claims he sent the mouse to Pepsi, which then "destroyed" the remains after he allowed them to test it, according to his complaint. Most shudder-worthy, however, is that Pepsi's lawyers also found experts to testify, based on the state of the remains sent to them that, "the mouse would have dissolved in the soda had it been in the can from the time of its bottling until the day the plaintiff drank it," according to the Record. (It would have become a "jelly-like substance," according to Pepsi, adds LegalNewsline.) This seems like a winning-the-battle-while-surrendering-the-war kind of strategy that hinges on winning the argument that "our product is essentially a can of battery acid." The lawyers still appear to be lawyering behind the scenes but we cannot wait for this to come to trial (though we think a trial is about as likely as the chances of us "Doing the Dew" again)."Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

It's pretty disgusting to think of how low soda's pH level is, in comparison to battery acid. pH of soda, especially Pepsi/Cola drinks are 2.5, some can be lower, and the pH of sulfuric acid (battery acid) is 0.3. Stomach acid is between 1-2. No wonder a mouse can dissolve easily in that environment... it's like submerging it into gastric juices.... predigested for your convenience.
