    Everyone knows the story behind the Red Bull launch and how it is one of the greatest beverage launches and marketing stories in history. I recently read the Jagermeister / Sidney Frank story as well (another great one). Does anyone have any other great product launch success stories?

    Well, it's a habit that I developed a long time ago. When I use LOL, it means at that moment I'm enjoying myself. I guess each one of us has different styles.

    My grip is posters like yourself who do not capitalize the first letter of the first word of a sentence. Some posters use poor sentence structure ect.

    I do not care...it just makes it harder to understand that's all. When I post a message I try my best to use good proper English so that my board mates can understand my thoughts.

    Like I said, thats my style, my way of expression. I will respect you and I hope you will respect me. LOL

    Diet Coke was probably the biggest launch of the last 50 years. I mean, in one year, it became #3, and is approaching #2. That's pretty impressive.

    Obviously, "new" Coke was the biggest mistake.

    Some people are nerdier than others.

    And while a beverage forum IS pretty nerdy, you gotta remember that many of the people in this forum or either casual beverage enthusiasts or industry professionals.

    So they may not know much internet slang.
