Some people take this cola stuff very seriously, and get upset if they can’t get the brand they want. I don’t understand this, because I am one of those people who can’t taste the difference. Maybe I’d be able to tell if I had the two drinks together, but if you put one in front of me I couldn’t tell you which one it was without looking at the container.
I drink Pepsi more often, but it’s only because I don’t have to reach down to get it. I always drink caffene-free, and at the nearby Sheetz the cold caffene-free Pepsi is at eye level and the caffene-free Coke is a few shelves down. I’d have to bend slightly to get the Coke. If they moved the Coke up and the Pepsi down, I’d probably become a Coke drinker. If the two were on the same level I might keep buying Pepsi out of habit, or I might buy whichever brand was closer to my hand once I pulled the door open. I suppose we’d need to set up a controlled experiment to find the truth. (Actually, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to learn that a great deal of money was being spent studying this very problem. Fickle, apathetic customers like me are the worst.)
I will hand them this, Coke has the best ads:
Philosophy of Moderation
The comments on most sites are a sewer of hate, because we're moderating with the wrong goals in mind.
Skyrim Thieves Guild
The Thieves Guild quest in Skyrim is a vortex of disjointed plot-holes, contrivances, and nonsense.
Could Have Been Great
Here are four games that could have been much better with just a little more work.
Artless in Alderaan
People were so worried about the boring gameplay of The Old Republic they overlooked just how boring and amateur the art is.
Blistering Stupidity of Fallout 3
Yeah, this game is a classic. But the story is idiotic, incoherent, thematically confused, and patronizing.
