too good to fact check

    I wish that one was true too… Maybe it will serve as inspiration to someone?

    I routinely purchase a super big size drink to share with my entire family. It costs less and is good for the environment because I generate less trash.

    Don't worry Drudge Report posted it as factual, so I'm sure people will be quoting it on social media all weekend.

    When I saw this story this morning (quoted elsewhere), I initially read "Daily Currant" (an Onion-ish satire site) as "Daily Caller" (actual news & comment site), so imagine my disappointment when I followed the link to the actual story.

    God I wanted that to be true when I saw it.

    I wasn't aware that the proposed soda size regulation prevented anyone from buying a second soda or refilling their soda in restaurants that have public fountains. Is this supposed to be a gotcha, or is this Palin politics ("I'm gonna call you on this terrible thing you're doing by complaining about the thing it does not do.")

    James Pope, I think it would be a brilliant way to teach Bloomberg how annoying it is to have someone else imposing their arbitrary limits on you.

    Darn it, this ought to be true! Maybe we can start a movement!

    @James Pope

    Why "Palin Politics"? It's not as if it was new with her. Hell, it's not as if it was new when the Babylonians had an empire.

  10. James Pope says:

    All limits save physics are arbitrary to someone. Why can't you just cut up people and call yourself a surgeon, buyer beware, etc? I know I can drive, why do I need a license to prove it to someone else? Arbitrary limitations, they're everywhere. You can complain about them all you like, but our entire social structure is mostly arbitrary. Hell, why do you wear pants in public? Someone's arbitrary decision that they don't want to see your balls? Inconceivable, right?

    Palin politics, because I wasn't sure anyone else was around when Su-Abu was making an ass of himself in Ur. I went with a modern well-known political idiot instead… Is there an arbitrary limitation here against doing so?

    This is an improper analogy. Bloomberg never attempted to ban people from getting two drinks.

    A proper analogy would have been banning him from taking a double-size pizza and forcing him to order two instead.

    Ah, James Pope said it better than I did in their first comment.
