this is when they stole willy wonkas secret formula

so the coca cola secret formula has said to be published feb 8 1978 in the atlanta journal constitution and has now come to light so is this a good thing? at first i was kinda excited to think about discovering what makes coca cola so good but while at the time when i had a fresh cup of cola in my hand the feeling of excitement subsided and what was left was the feeling of guilt and greed on my part, why cant i be happy with what i have in my hand? do i really need to know? well not really but since its all over the news you cant help but take notice but its okay coca cola was the first and i will always pick an original over a impersonation.
so here is a copy of the ingredients from that publish

Fluid extract of Coca 3 drams USP
Citric acid 3 oz
Caffeine 1 oz
Sugar 30 (quantity unclear from the markings)
Water 2.5 gal
Lime juice 2 pints 1 qrt
Vanilla 1 oz
Caramel 1.5 oz or more to colour

Alcohol 8 oz
Orange oil 20 drops
Lemon oil 30 drops
Nutmeg oil 10 drops
Coriander 5 drops
Neroli 10 drops

how to make quick awesome spaghetti

my version of making spaghetti is probably not going to be accepted by chiefs or fancy restaurant anytime soon but it should because its awesome and really quick to make.
things you will need is
spaghetti sauce
ground beef
olive oil
Parmesan cheese
large pot to boil spaghetti
large frying pot or a wok 

so the way i start is with dicing of the onions the smaller the dice the quicker they cook so depending on how you like it do it to your preference.
after you have your onions diced turn the stove on high with your large frying pan on top letting the pot heat up ( 20-30 seconds)
next add a little olive oil to the pan i usually don't use exact measuring tools but if you do a tablespoon is more than enough.
add your onions in the frying pan constantly move the onions around in the pan and and this point the pan should be hot so turn the element down to maybe a little more than half way and keep the mixing the onions until they get a brown color at this time you know its time to add the ground beef.
so now that you have added the ground beef mix this in with the onions and let the meat cook.
the way i determine if the meat is cooked is though color and and how much water is in the frying pan. so by visual if the meat looks pink/reddish this means the meat is still raw what you want to see is the meat a more brown all over look also just because its brown doesn't mean its cooked. after this you want to look out for any condensation in the pan, if you stir the meat around and you see the boiling let the meat cook and this is a sign that your almost done.
now that your meat is cooking fill your pot for the spaghetti with hot water (saves time) and put on the stove to boil once the water is boiling add your spaghetti,cover and let boil.
at this time go back and check your meat if there is no water in the bottom of the pan this is the perfect time to add the sauce in with the meat and turn down the element to low, mix the sauce into the meat and let simmer.
at this time keep checking your spaghetti to your preference,once you spaghetti is done strain the spaghetti and serve.
tip to make it awesome is get a fresh loaf of french bread and it makes cooking worth while.

how to have a "friendly" date for girls and guys

the reason why i put friendly date in the heading is because in the end its all up to you in making the move at the end which is always fun but not always called for, but even if it doesn't get to that point at this time don't worry about it and have fun with the person, go with it and heres a few tips that ive been reading up on and tried myself so i hope this works for you.
First of all things on the to do list is to get in touch with the person txt/call anyway you feel comfortable and also have something already set or at least a idea on what you have in mind for the social get together.
now that you have plans time to look the part and shower and make sure your clean from head to toe so take time in your appearance, also dress appropriately for the occasion you will feel awkward if you show up to the movies in a tuxedo.
now that your ready and its time to meet up my opinion is to meet up at a neutral location, coffee shops are the easiest and most convenient from there its time to break the ice chat a bit and let things slowly build from here. also try keep your options open if you have something planned and they don't fall through know whats happening in your area concerts,poetry slams,carnivals these are all fun things to do. also keep an upbeat attitude throughout the night and keep the conversation exciting and things that both of you can relate to even if you have to tell little white lies in the end there going to like you for a fun night. after the main event don't try and drag out the night but don't leave to abruptly, unless the other person has something in mind this is your way out.
give a reason why you have to go homework,friend with issues anything that makes them say "okay sounds good" will pretty much now here is ur chance to leave on a friend hug or if you know they like you even a kiss its all on good you think the night went.
after that your home free after i leave a few minutes later i like to send a "thanks for hanging out" txt. and usually you get a txt back saying how fun it was and that we should do it again...

`how to buy a suit

if you don't know how to buy a suit i will show you how to make buying a suit a little easier for yourself to get you started in the right direction at least.
before you even go out looking you should take time to know what you want, you can do this simply by going online or even searching through magazines. this will make it alot less complicated when you go out also maybe try do your body measurements, if you don't have a measuring tape dont worry about it they will usually do it at the store.
after you have a general idea on what you might like its time to head to the store, now when trying on a suit there are a few things that you should pay attention to here are the main keys when buying a suit. try put these things to memory it will help you get use to how a well fitted suit should fit on yourself.

    *shoulders - the suits shoulders should hug your own and should not feel baggy or look like they are falling off your shoulders.

    * chest- button your suit with ease but there shouldn't be more than a fist worth of space in between your shirt and jacket length.

    * length- when your arms fall to your side you should be able to cup your fingers under the sides of your suit jacket.

   * pants- should be slim, comfortable yet not baggy and fits naturally on your hips.

these are the main things you should think about when shopping for that new suit so try keep in mind after you know and feel comfortable looking at suits the rest is all style. heres somethings you should consider like how many buttons would you like on your coat there is 3 button 2 button and 1 button. if your not sure on which one to choose the way i usually pick depends on the look your looking for so 3 button is a very conservative old fashioned style 2 buttons is the now modern look if your not sure the 2 button would be the best pick. the 1 button is old school but still very modern.
after finding a suit to your preference take your suit to a tailor to have it altered for a perfect fit.
