I completely agree with this. I am all for open borders across the world personally, people have just as much right to be somewhere as anyone else.

Our family likes tea plain.

... which might not seems weird until you realize most other people can add up to 3 or 4 teaspoon of sugar for their liking.

Seriously, our commercial drinks and beverages are very sweet, and I hate it. (though I have to admit every now and then I fall for them !)

I grew up drinking southern-style sweet iced tea. My grandmother even used Nestea instant iced tea crystals... *shudders*

After my pancreas got destroyed and I developed diabetes, I learned how to change my beverage habits fast. Unsweetened iced tea is a treat for me, because once you take away the sweetener that masks everything, you can quickly discover which teas are great and which ones are garbage.

Unsweetened ice tea ? Wow, you have a strong tolerance or is it green tea only or is it so dilute ?

Nope, not diluted, traditional black tea. Brewed the right way and chilled, it's crisp, flavorful, slightly earthy but not bitter. Steep it too long and you get the tanins that start to make the bitter. Don't brew it long enough and it's kinda icky flavored water. If it is bitter, I will throw half a packet or a whole packet of either stevia or sucralose (Splendid) in to take the edge off.

Okay, going back to this one, I support the EU, and I would much rather Brexit not be happening. The latter point about open borders, I like Schengen in Europe, the idea of driving from one country to the next without having to stop every 6 hours for someone to check my passport is nice, but I don't like the idea of Schengen for the UK. I don't know why, I guess it's just something to do with the fact we're an island, we're special :P

I personally find them far more comfortable than the East Coast 225s, where you frequently get woken up by a set of points.

Well, that's not off what I'd call "dilute"...

I second this.

I think Swift is cool. Ever since she released "Shake it Off" where she basically makes fun of her public perception, I've appreciated her a lot more.

Speaking of, here you go: I think Justin Bieber has finally started to come into his own as a respectable pop artist and singer.

I'd have much preferred it if it was a lot more powerful sounding, like he was actually annoyed by it, and that'd require 'Love' to be swapped with a profanity. (I think it actually was for one cover).
