The Monday Morning News


A new carbonated breakfast drink? You have to wonder what qualifies as vitamins. Or better, what part of a horse is in there?
Taco Bell has been selling Mountain Dew and OJ, in the few locations where they offer breakfast, for a while now.
Wait putting out a breakfast drink makes them bad? Im not saying its healthy but I see no reason to condemn then for it.
@2: I've been doing that for a while now, when I need a caffeine fix for morning classes. All the stimulants of Mountain Dew, with the agreeable taste of orange juice!
Mountain Dew already has a vitamin-fortified energy drink called Amp. Tastes exactly like Mountain Dew and everything. I don't make a habit out of it, but on those mornings where it feels like there just isn't enough caffeine in the world to get going, it'll do the trick.
I loves me some Mountain Dew, and I don't really care for tea or coffee. That makes me exactly the type of person they're trying to sell to, but that drink sounds absolutely vile.
The kind of people who say 'I'm going to drink soda for breakfast' probably aren't making especially healthy diet choices no matter what the selection is like.
Sign. More well. Not even weller.
Is Mountain Dew + OJ a sort of virgin mimosa, but with caffeine?
@5: I am pretty sure Amp is just that old soda Surge in a different bottle. Does anyone else remember Surge?
Sign? SigH!

U.S. Birth Rate Hit Historic Low in 2011, CDC Says

In 2011, 3,953,593 babies were born in the U.S. -- 1 percent fewer than in 2010 and 4 percent fewer than in 2009, according to Brady Hamilton, PhD, of the CDC in Atlanta, and colleagues at the agency and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore.

That number, combined with population data, yielded a crude birth rate of 12.7 per 1,000 people, the lowest rate ever reported for the nation, they reported online and in the March 2013 issue of Pediatrics.…
@8 and @11, I assume that's deliberate.
Mountain Dew is already a fully-qualified breakfast beverage: in addition to caffeine, it contains orange juice!…

Unfortunately, right after corn juice in the list.
@13 ;)
While factually true, the resignation of Gregory XII wasn't about a Pope stepping down, it was a carefully negotiated end to the great western schism. There were two other popes running around at this time. In fact, he was elected upon the condition that he would resign.

Interesting side-note, every previous "resignation" has accompanied deep political maneuverings. I wonder what the fuck is going on in the Vatican to inspire that old pedo to step down.
