5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this when it's around $2 a can, January 18, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is one of the TOP coconut waters on amazon. I believe that the best coconut water originates from one or two tree farms in Thailand and gets sold to multiple re-sellers. It's sort of like- "May the best-designed can win!".
I've tasted a dozen different coconut waters and I've found that the ones in the steel cans taste the best, the aluminum come in second place and the water in the paper containers contains preservatives and those do not taste as well.

As always, when buying any kind of juice, always check the can to make sure it contains 100% juice.
Thank you.

Vega Snack Bar, Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt, 12 Count
Vega Snack Bar, Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt, 12 Count
Price: $28.03

4.0 out of 5 stars Wrapper is big on expectation, January 2, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Pros:
- Tastes good.
- Non-GMO
- Good chocolate

Cons:
- Labeled as "mixed-nuts" but the only 2 nuts in it are almonds and cashews.
- The wrapper looks substantial at 7 inches but when I measured the snack bar it was only 4 1/4" (seems too small for $2 a bar)

FYI:
- The ingredients are: almonds, organic cashews, organic tapioca syrup, brown rice crisps, organic agave syrup, dark chocolate, buckwheat chia seeds, hemp seeds, sea salt, organic vanilla extract.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a must-carry on anyone's tool belt, January 2, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Pros:
-It does what is was meant to do - Drives staples into wood.
-Pretty strong. upon taking this sucker out from its packaging I started stapling everything in sight. This thing tacks through soft wood with ease, tacks flush into medium wood, and only had a bit of a problem going into the wood on my window sill which was harder than the other woods in the house. In that hardened wood the staple stuck-out a little but not a big deal.
-This thing is light, easy to load, and the handle locks down making for easy carrying on any tool belt.

Cons:
-It's sold as a "Heavy Duty" tacker but I'd personally uses it for light to medium duty tasks.
-SInce it's so light, you might want to use your other hand to push down on the upper-area of the gun so that it doesn't move off-target when you squeeze the handle.

FYI:
-I stapled one of my old books starting with page 1 and it shot all the way to page 82.
-To lock down the handle after use, first unload the staples, then squeeze the handle and hold as you slide up the latch to lock the handle into closed postion.
-Please... ALWAYS USE EYE PROTECTION. We only get two pairs of eyes, protect them at all costs.

5.0 out of 5 stars in-depth review from the period blog, January 1, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Absorbency:
This pantiliner offers medium protection and is perfect for daily to heavy discharge or as a tampon back up. I find that most of the absorption occurs on the skinny part of the liner, so I like to stick the liner a little further back so I have more liner to absorb my discharge.
I also recommend this for days when you are expecting your period but still want to wear your sexy panties or prefer to wear a thong. The Carefree thong liner should be able to hold up until you find a pad.

Comfort:
I feel clean and dry when I use these and the pantiliner allows my skin to breath so even after absorbing discharge, I didn’t feel wet down there and it didn’t not stick to my body.
The best part about wearing this is that even after a full day of wearing a thong and going about my day, bussing, running around campus, the skinny end of the liner was still in place! It didn’t shift, lift, or fold at all! That’s how every thong pantiliner should perform.

Recommend for: Tampon back up, light to heavy vaginal discharge, active/sport wear
Not recommended for: Periods

Adhesive:
The edge to edge adhesive is A+++ The entire backside of this liner is sticky so the liner to conform to whatever shape you want to fit thongs of all shapes. The wings did an excellent job keeping the liner in place. I didn’t have to worry about it shifting out of place even after an entire day.

Packaging:
The liners are packaged in a flip top box with the narrow side pointing towards the top. The paper backing even has a little tab to help you peel off the backing.

The pantiliner measures 16.5cm by 6cm – 1.3cm and is ~0.1cm thin.

Summary : The entire backside of this liner is sticky! No shifting, lifting, or folding, good flexibility, and a soft cover makes this Carefree thong pantiliner a winner.

-Only one negative... They are not individually wrapped.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, but there is nothing "Secret" here, December 28, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Genius's create, there is no secret thought-process about it. Yes, lots of trail and error occurs, but to say that anyone of us can become inventors is simply untrue.
I beg to differ with the authors following quotes from the final chapter...
"creating is extraordinary but creators are human; everything right with us can fix anything wrong with us; and that progress is not inevitable consequence but an individual choice."
"Necessity is not the mother of invention, You are."

Are we not killing ourselves slowly with modern chemicals and waste in the worlds oceans? Fracking for oil and contaminating the less-fortunate's drinking water? The ruthless selfish humans rise to the top in our societies. Sadly it is in most human's character to only think about themselves and immediate family.

Read: The Innovators Dilemma instead.
