  • there is already a **** load of water in the mountain dew and with ice you get even much more ripped off. They make so much money with the soft drinks, it's crazy.

        I hate room temperature soda, that's why I always microwave mine for a few minutes.

              Yeah I know, makes you want to order only from fast food places with self serve drinks where you control the amount of ice. If you're a Mtn. Dew freak & you're going for the caffeine buzz & boost, get it from a bottle, the soda guns have too much gas in those cheap bubbles -- caffeine buzzkill.

              Same thing with any cocktail. 1st lesson learned in bartending 101: rocks are cheap, booze is not. Bars boost their profits per drink by 20% or more by overloading with ice. Smart drinkers (& all hardcore alkies) know the magic words when ordering: Light rocks, the phrase that follows the drink order, like Margarita on the rocks, & light rocks.... words to live by. Those computerized premixed drinks like they have in Vegas, etc. grind my gears, they take all the glamor out of drinking in bars & bartending (& your nightly take home by diminishing tips). Grinds my gears when opulent upscale bars with mega-expensive libations skimp on the alcohol by loading the drinks up with cheap-ass ice cubes.

              In your he-he-eee-ad, in your he-eee-ad, zombie, zombie, zombie-e-e......

              It's the same old thing
              Since 1916
              in your head, in your head they are fighting.....
              My fave Cranberries song!! Appropriate for this upcoming time of yr..... March 17th-St. Pattie's Day & Easter, for the Irish Easter Rebellion of 1916.
              That song is about how all the Irish families, Catholic & Protestant, have had it with the Troubles.... so they became zombies. Just one interpretation, the Irish-Americans among you will take heed b/c you will have to explain it to non-Fenians on 3/17 every yr.

              I always crank up the Chieftains album with Sinead O'Connor singing the Foggy Dew in that weird witchy voice of hers, the clink of shot glasses full of Jameson & "Fook the Queen!" toasts heard throughout the land, good times.... :-)

              Come to think of it, Bad Queen Bess the 2nd & the whole worthless anachronistic British Royal Family grinds my gears, & I'm only about half Irish. Not the best 50 parts of a hundred, I'm the 1st to admit that, but still.....

                I used to bartend, and we measure everything out with or w/out ice. You get nothing extra by not getting ice, you just get less diluted booze.

                  When people call pop, soda. :)

                  What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
                  they get smoked.

                      While we're on topic of soda. People at McDonalds who order the supersized extra greasy burger with a Diet Coke.

                        Some people, myself included, just like the taste of diet pop better. I rarely drink it anymore, but when I do I have to drink diet. Not because it's "better for me" (because it really isn't) but because I like the taste better.

                        • Whatbothers me is when people debate semantics and regional colloquialisms. Soda, pop, soda pop..fountain, bubbler, whatever! we all know what you mean who really cares!

                            My friends dad is opening a pizza place he's going to have a combo order on the menu called the fat chick special that includes two pieces of pizza, extra ranch and topped off with diet coke so they feel like they're eating healthy.

                            I agree with P-L though. If I do drink pop it's usually diet because I like diet better.

                            Only people in or around Wisconsin know what the heck that means. haha

                                Pretty much every old person I've ever met has called it soda so I don't get this.
