True story, my dad drank V8 constantly in his later years.

16 hours before he died, I was in the room when his cardiologist said it was about the worst thing he could be drinking due to the sodium.

I could have had a father.

My wife uses it as a base for her sauce so I do consume it on a fairly regular basis. By itself it's bleh, with other stuff added in and simmered down then spread over fettuccine, delicious!

Are you the one that picked "other"? I MADE AN OPTION FOR PEOPLE WHO ONLY LIKE IT AS AN INGREDIENT IN OTHER THINGS.

Nobody reads the goddamn poll options. I hate this place. Nothing works here.

Fuck, man. It worked the other way as well. My mom had docs telling her to drink more V8 and Gatorade. tldr; sometimes your son that completed Life & Death 1 & 2 for DOS and delivered coffee to surgeon break rooms knows more about health than your doctor.

Take a deep breath, have a stick of gum. Sometimes life (and polls) don't go as expected.

I hate raw tomatoes, love almost everything made from/with tomatoes (salsa, pico de gallo, ketchup), but literally cannot stand V8. Just the thought of the smell makes me gag. I've only had two Bloody Marys in my life. One was in Washington D.C. and contained oysters, which I drank because I had already downed 20 drinks. The other was with ICJ at a dog park. It had bacon and celery in it and was the least appetizing thing in the immediate vicinity, and this was an area full of dogshit. I have accepted my fate. Both Bloody Marys and V8 are off my list. Gross!

There's only one good thing to come out of V8, and it was this scene in Ninja III: The Domination.

Ooo, I wonder if we have the low sodium version in the fridge? Now maybe I won't fire the bottle we have down the mountain. You may have not been able to save my father, but you might be able to save a bottle of V8.

I don't remember, but I vaguely remember you pulling a knife on me. Actually I seem to recall this place was known for their Bloody Marys, or maybe they were on sale. Maybe I thought the bacon would overpower the tomato juice. It didn't. It lost the fight.

A good bloody mary involves only enough juice to compliment the vodka, they should not be equal partners in a glass. Best one I ever had contained a spicy pickle spear instead of celery.

I prefer to get my veggies in solid form not liquid. Give me a nice salad any day. And I would not even use it for cooking when there are all kinds of tomato sauces and pastes available for much cheaper per volume and they taste better. If I wanted to drink veggies I would get a nice garlicy pasta sauce or salsa or whatever.

Best one I ever had was a glass of rum.

I had a V8 from the first time I owned a car. It was a '73 Ford Grand Torino Station Wagon, silver.

A lot of station wagons came with v8s. The first car I remember my mom driving, a Mercury Zephyr station wagon, had a v8. At my last house I had a neighbor with two Chevy Caprice station wagons (one with fake wood paneling, one without), both of which had v8s. I think the first car my mom owned that wasn't a v8 was our Toyota Tercel, which according to Wikipedia had a 1.5l engine that put out 68 horsepower. Way less fun than the Zephyr.

The "sport wagon" fad comes and goes. A few years ago Dodge released their Magnum station wagon with the same engine as the Challenger. Cadillac's CTS-V Wagon puts out 550+hp,which is an impressive amount of power to retrieve groceries in.

One time I was driving home on the 405 freeway in Orange County, California about 3 in the morning after an all-night programming session (Orange Coast College's computer center was open 24/7) and I decided to open it up as there was absolutely nobody around on six lanes of interstate highway. I get it up to 93MPH, and it vibrates like crazy. At that point I then notice I'm being approached by a police car with its bubble lights on. I'm thinking, "oh shit, he's nailed me," but he just blew my doors off, he passed me like I was standing still, and kept right on going.
