some of these claims i am seeing online seem pretty far fetched. especially the whole plasma thing. how much of this is true? it doesnt taste like coconut to me. more of a bitter flavor. but my sense of taste and smell are all messed up or almost gone from a head injury a few years ago.

What are some of the claims you've seen?


I enjoy the taste of it, I prefer it 'straight from the coconut", or cold, in a metal container, with a straw.

Some is too sweet, some had even MORE sugar added to it (yargh!) some is mixed w/ other flavors, I prefer the regular stuff.

that it aids in blood transfusion. that it is identical to human plasma.

that sounds pretty out there to me. i was going to dump it because it tasted nothing like i expected and grieve over some whole leaf tea but i saw some of its other benifits like helping raise metabolism, helps rehydrate, and its full of that good stuff(minerals n vitamins).

i didnt expect it to taste so bitter tho. i went ahead and chugged the rest of my bottle i had and im feeling a bit more refreshed now. guess this is something i need to get used to. the flavor if it that is. just like ive had to with so many other things after my head injury.

forgot to mention i got that ZICO brand from Target. i found i can get the Vitacoco from GNC

Either it varies due to it being 'real', or due to what has happened to it during the processing and shipment.


I've had some that tasted like sugar water,(waaaay too sweet) and some that tasted 'bitte' as you have said...

They SHOULD have some sorta standard, though... like they have with soda, beer, and other food...

guess its a flavor i need to get used to. had to do the same for oj, yogurt, chocolate after my head injury and some others i cant think of. on a side note, this is when i fell in love with raw pineapple and cooked pineapple thanks to the spinal and brain injury hospital.

Damn... are coconuts supposed to be all that? I have a coconut tree in the back-yard, and most of my neighbors throw their coconuts out in huge piles during bulk pick-up days. I had no idea that coconuts are really all that...

I bought a machete from Harbor Freight a couple of years ago, and I use it to chop open coconuts... but lately, that's only for when I have a BBQ in my back-yard. I'll take a couple of coconuts, take the husk off, and then chop the top off the inside nuts, and then pour vodka and cranberry juice in there (or whatever)... tastes pretty good.

Man, I've got to be honest with you guys, if I ever move for work or anything, I'm going to really miss living in zone 9b / 10. I can grow friggin whatever the hell I want.

We don't buy pineapples anymore, but when we used to, we'd just cut the top off, stick it in a cup of water, and after it grew some roots, we'd stick it in the ground. I harvest at least one pineapple every month now.

Here's another REALLY REALLY great fruit / plant that grows here, which is ridiculously healthy for you... it's called "Suriname Cherry"






I have a bunch of these growing in my backyard. The health benefits are insane...
http://www.livestrong.com/a...urinam-cherry-fruit/


Here's another fruit tree I have growing in my back yard... it's called "starfruit"




They grow constantly throughout the better part of the year. Last year, I had so many that I ended up letting all my neighbors pick some off the tree, and I still ended up with about 20 pounds of fruit rotting... and that's only what I was able to pick up and put in a bag (I'm sure twice that much fell on the ground, or was eaten by squirells and whatever the hell else).

For my daughter's 2nd birthday party, I took like 5 pounds of starfruit, blended all of them, then filtered it through a calander, put it in a punch bowl with ice, then chopped up another 10 of them and left the star pieces in there, dumped like 4 kinds of alcohol and orange juice in there, and it was a super powerful anti-oxidant alcoholic punch drink... it was awesome.

I'm just saying right now... I will be so sad the day I have to move and leave all this. If I ever do, I'm keeping my house (zone 9 / 10), and my other property in Okeechobee (zone 8 / 9).

Yup... Fort Lauderdale.

I like the diversity, culture, food, etc... and you're still in America.

I'm only 20 minutes from Miami and 30 minutes from South Beach, but only 6-8 minutes from Fort Lauderdale beach.

I know there is a VA hospital in Miami...

It'll be fun, PLUS, you'll get to learn Spanish too...

There's nothing like going to Calle 8 (8th "street") and eating pastelitos y cafecito (literally, little pastries and little coffee), o cortadito... awesome stuff...

Some of the best empenadas y paellas down here...

There are actually some pretty decent ones. In South Florida at least, you have everything from undergraduate colleges, to graduate colleges.

If you're still starting out at a Freshman, you might be interested in going to our former "community college." Sounds aweful, I know... but our community college known as "Broward College" was listed in the top-ten community colleges, and was also on the list of one of the most advanced undergraduate colleges that's non-ivy league. The school is very inexpensive, and you can get a very decent 2-year degree from there. Once you get a degree from there, you automatically become accepted at any of the Florida state colleges like Florida Atlantic University, Florida International University, and the degree is considered a shoe-in (so long as your grades are good) for University of Florida (which is north Florida) and University of Miami.

FAU, and Broward College all have campuses around South Florida... there is actually a street called "College Avenue" which has 3-4 colleges on it. Nova Southeastern University which offers up to doctorate degrees. FIU and FAU have excellent engineering programs, and are pretty well known.

I got my bachelors degree from Barry University because it's fully accredited (SAC / Regional), and they offered a software engineering degree program that I could take in half-semesters (was able to get it in two years while working full time).


Cost of living isn't expensive, but it's not cheap when compared to some of the more rural states. The average 2,500 square foot home is still about 200,000 bucks in an area that you'd actually want to live. But you could buy a condo for DIRT cheap right now... probably a 3-bedroom condo for under 150,000 walking distance from the beach.

i think attending a community college would be i my best interest to knock all the basic crap out of the way then i can focus on all the engineering class stuff. i took engineering ethics this past semester for my philosophy class. i loved that class. rest of the courses were the basic school crud. not to my interest, but its gotta get done.

i wont hafta worry about working for a while since im getting taken care of for being a disabled veteran. (we wont go into that story) and i have the GI Bill housing allowance. here i was getting 968 for housing. my rent is 863 for a one bedroom apt, two one car garages ( fiero shops ) and two cats. im really tired of apartment life and am looking for a house for my next move. also for the next move, i am wanting out of this state. gotta get out before its too late. dont wanna get a house here because that could lock me in this hell. i loved every bit of florida when i was stationed there. i was in pensacola but i went and explored a lot of florida. on a side note, me and a friend are gonna drive from here to miami to get a vw rabbit thats had a few things done to it. cant wait for this road trip!

right now im livind down the street from the university in the town ive lived in since highschool. its a pretty upper class place. so its $$$$ here. i need to look up what the average cost of living is here and there. im gonna be searching for a place with a 2 car garage. i need more room than a one car to do my work. poor FASLANE is getting scratches on its perfect 87 paint job

oh, i hope and im sure the place isnt as abundant with fast food heart attack places like oklahoma is. this place is a pretty mighty unhealthy looking state.

EDIT: lol wow, this thread went from coconut water to talk of living in florida. lol im not complaining at all.

Honestly, when you come down here to Miami, I'd be happy to talk with you and show you around. I promise I'm not a weirdo, or frog choker, or anything like that. There's a couple of guys on here who I've met and am friends with, but they're mostly lurkers. I can kind of give you a general idea of where you'll want to look. I will tell you this, Broward College is one of the best community colleges in the entire United States, it's in the top 10.

The whole area from Fort Lauderdale to Miami is kind of interesting, you have some ridiculously wealthy areas, and then right next door, a trailer park... so you'll find that for the most part, there are a lot of affordable places within decent areas. Every other car is a Lamborgini Gallardo, or a 1989 Toyota Corolla.

Best thing to do when you get down here is to get the housing guides from the local grocery stores, and check out the housing prices. I would recommend honestly that you come down here first and rent, at least for a year so that you get a better understanding of what and where you want to live... maybe even consider getting rid of one of your Fieros... hate to say it, but when you own a lot of crap, it holds you back.

You may very well want to move to a condo right next to South Beach and walk to the beach every night, banging Hispanic chicks, and drinking Mojitos... but you can't do that if you've got two Fieros that are forcing you to live in the more rural area.

I love living down here...


Anyway, let me know... if you're going to be heading down this way, we can meet up if you want, just shoot me a PM when it's getting closer, and I'll share my cell phone number.


EDIT: Oh yeah, people down here don't cook... even though they have some of the most magnificent kitchens in the world, most people go out to eat nearly every night. I don't because I try to save money so my wife cooks... but there are some bad-ass places to eat down here. I've lived all up and down the East coast, from Virginia, Washington D.C., Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Florida... and while they each have their own special thing about them, Florida is much more "forgiving."

People generally are not as nice... there's no "southern hospitality" like I was accustomed to in Richmond Virginia... but if you respect the culture, they'll treat you well. The laws also aren't as strict. There's no emissions testing, and no state income tax either.

Owning cars down here is so much easier too... we found a 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz in a field a few years ago. We got it running, cut the roof off of it, and got it registered the same day. We drove it around with jagged B-pillars, and half the car non-functioning, and no one cared. I know of very few other states that allow that. When I lived in Northern Virginia... if you had a dent larger than the size of your fist, your car failed inspection and you couldn't get it registered... plus you also had to pay property tax on it. We also don't have front license plates here...

... and down the street from where I live, there is a modern and classic car show every Friday with about 300+ cars every single Friday, throughout the entire year.

You're also only an hour and a half from the Keys, or three hours away from Disney World / theme parks, or a day's drive away from Mardi Gras in New Orleans through I-10.

yea i would appreciate that. haha no worries, im not worried about anything like that. just dont be like that guy in the freebasing video randye just posted kind of funny tho.

sounds like here kind of. trailer parks in the wealthy areas. but im sure those trailers are mighty over priced. ill see the ocasional ferrari or lambo leaving my apartments. spotted a tesla a few times too. just makes me want to get my fiero on the road so much more. but theres still a lot more work to be done on this swap.

yea that sounds more practical than blindly jumping into an area you know nothing about. some can be pretty deceiving as i have found out before. same goes with a car. you may see many on the road, but that doesnt make them a good car. (aveo)

i do miss that part of the beach. and all the chicks. lol i hate it here. if i do move there, it will be me and my brother as hes getting ready to get out of the navy in a few months. hes got a 96 LT4 vette and a 71 deuce and a half (big mofo). both are all blacked out. so he can help add to the income to spend on housing and whatnot. i know he misses florida too since he got his last C4 in miami. i think his current one too.

ill definitely be doing that. i know it will be very hard to leave there. i miss it so much.

i dont remember to well, but isnt the old school aircooled to current vw scene pretty decent out there?

But you could buy a condo for DIRT cheap right now... probably a 3-bedroom condo for under 150,000 walking distance from the beach.


Wow, I paid 68K for my 1,600 sq. foot. house in a major metropolitan area, though a below-average neighborhood. How do people make a $2,000/month mortgage payment?

Yeah, the VW scene is pretty decent down here... I think the "place" for the VW scene is still and will always be Southern California, but I do see a lot of VWs down here. I see at least 1 beetle a day, and usually see 1 or 2 busses a week. There's a big club down here too which I am a part of (I have a 1973 VW Bus), but never been to a single meeting. To be honest, I'm not real big in the car club scene. I think in total I've maybe been to 10 car shows in the 15 years I've lived here.

I actually just got back from the beach... heh. I picked up my daughter, and we just hung out at the beach for an hour.

Well, that's basically what I pay. My mortgage over the years has been anywhere from $1,956 (what it is now) to just under $2,200. I mean... 2,000 a month isn't cheap, but it isn't expensive either for a middle-class family I would guess. For a household that brings in a combined income of about $100,000 that would be a pretty modest income. That said... I have a lot of respect for people who make more than that, and live much more below their means. I would be too for the most part, but I've got a wife and a kid, and got an amazing deal on a house before the boom. After it's rise and fall, it's still worth more than I paid for it, so I can't complain. It was a late 80s / modern home... sort of in the mediterrainian style. I like it, just finished painting the entire thing. That's what's nice (and lame) about South Florida... all the homes are single story... and no basements. Most people use their garages for storage (not for their cars). I've learned to live without excess "crap" simply because I don't have space to put that crap... heh.

that sounds pretty out there to me. i was going to dump it because it tasted nothing like i expected and grieve over some whole leaf tea but i saw some of its other benifits like helping raise metabolism, helps rehydrate, and its full of that good stuff(minerals n vitamins).

i didnt expect it to taste so bitter tho. i went ahead and chugged the rest of my bottle i had and im feeling a bit more refreshed now. guess this is something i need to get used to. the flavor if it that is. just like ive had to with so many other things after my head injury.

forgot to mention i got that ZICO brand from Target. i found i can get the Vitacoco from GNC



Its true, coconut was used as IV's substitutes in the pacific during WWII. As crazy as it sounds, it the real deal.

Its going to be the latest GNC fad, before this was probiotics. As helpful as these things are, the vast majority that takes it is doing it simply for the fact that everyone else is doing it.

I have no idea. in NY, there are plenty of areas where the TAXES alone are 2,000 a month! (yeah, 24,000 a year, wtf?) (and the home is pre 1950's, 1 bathroom and under 2000 sq. feet!) At least the Mortgage is only around 2,900-3,800...

NY's overrated, just like this silly coconut water...

Yes. And fortunately WE JUST discovered that after thousands of years of existence on the planet. Isn't the timing just SO fortunate for us??




Edit to say I really MISS the days when POMEGRANATE was the all-awesome fruit.

Double edit to say I REALLY miss the days when the BLUEBERRY was the all-awesome fruit.
