Coca-Cola Taste Test: High Fructose Corn Syrup vs. Sugar

Commented Apr 21, 2013 at 00:35:59 in Taste

“I can't believe it's just the type of sugar. I've just discovered Mexican Coke and I find it less carbonated, less sweet, more acidic and more refreshing. There is no way I could "chug" a bottle of Mexican coke when I could easily down a bottle of regular coke without thinking about it.

Way back with the New Coke fiasco, I accused Coke of taking itself off the market to "tweak". It never tasted the same after that. Sure I would like to compare it to pre-1985 stuff, but I can't. I am sure that the Mexican stuff is much closer than the Coke we get up here.”

“If it's not based on fact, why hasn't PETA sued? That's full liebel, they'd have the "real" records that they turned into the State to prove that HumaneWatch was lying, Right?

Oh no, instead they just claim that HumaneWatch is run by animal abusers. Shoot the messenger. Use Ad hominem attacks. Well I guess that's good enough for the people who are stupid enough to send them money.

http://yourlife.usatoday.com/parenting-family/pets/story/2012-03-01/PETA-says-exploiters-raise-euthanasia-issue/53315476/1

So PETA openly admits they kill 95% of the animals in their care, but that's okay because HUMANEWATCH IS AN EVIL CORPORATE SHILL!!!!!!”

“Not sure what your point is, but are you trying to say that HumaneWatch is not funded by corporate interests?”

“Yeah, isn't it nice that the BC liberals don't even pretend not to be corrupt anymore. By the way, I know that they keep saying it cost $2 billion, but then sneak in that the total project cost $3 billion. So what was that extra billion for if it had nothing to do with the cost of building the bridge?”

“How exactly do you "drive for the conditions" of being stuck in gridlock and having icebombs fall on your car? You have obviously never driven the Port Mann during rush hour, because trust me, NOBODY IS SPEEDING. You're crawling from Langley all the way in. As for the black ice this morning. If it's bad driving, why do the other bridges not suffer the same accident ratio?”

“Oh but didn't you hear Proudfoot? It never snows in the Lower mainland. Could have fooled me, I lived her for about 10 years in the 80's and again for the past 7 years and I swear there's usually 2-3 snowstorms every year. And it's not that nice fluffy prairie stuff either, it's like wet concrete.

And if it's just "freak weather" why doesn't it affect all of the other bridges? Somehow it only affects the "pretty" new bridge.”

stopgeorge on Jan 3, 2013 at 15:53:35

“Yeah. I had to laugh at that one.

It may not snow as much as it does back East, but it DOES snow. And having to close the bridge every time it DOES snow is completely unacceptable!

As I mentioned before, the construction team had to be pulled off the bridge last year due to the exact same reason.”

“Ah, so that's what they meant when they said they'd cover the deductable. You must be one of us poor-assed valley people who aren't really welcome anyway. Yeah, I'm not going to take your bet, you're right, you've been screwed by both parties.

I am now fully convinced that nobody looked at the specs of this bridge and only picked the prettiest design picture. I've been arguing about keeping the old bridge ever since I heard it was going to be closed. The best idea I had was to let the new bridge handle all of the stuff going into Burnaby & Vancouver and let the old bridge handle the highway 7 traffic going into New West and Coquitlam. But what do I know, I'm an accountant, not a civil engineer.”

“Actually, MV's own father tried to turn him in back in 2001. I personally think it's sickening that he's trying to blame his sadism on the fact that he grew up poor and black.

I'm not carping about the chew toy, if I had pits, I'd probably buy one. But I also noticed that you completely ignored the fact that shelters don't torture their dogs to death.”

“I think you mis-read what I said. I was saying that the Liberals were the phoenix from the ashes of the SoCred party. Same members, same games, same "we're corrupt, so what?" attitude.

I prefer my politicians to at least PRETEND not to be on the take.”

patrick cashman on Jan 3, 2013 at 09:28:45

“. The same members as SoCreds represents the conservative part of the Liberals. The Social Credits are the precursors to the Reform Party. Ernest Manning started the National Social Credits and his son Preston merely used the Social Credit policies when he started the Reform party. B.C.`s version of the Social Credit was no different and arose from Wacky Bennett. The SoCred merged with the Liberals to defeat the NDP.”

“And why are these kids "the most likely to be involved in dog fighting"? Because they're poor and black? Personally I think the entire black community should want to hang him by his privates for trying to blame his sadism on his culture.”

DebbyM on Jan 3, 2013 at 07:26:44

“Yes. I got the impression that he chose the schools that he went to for that reason. Being poor often prevents participation in what we would consider acceptable activities, but owning a dog is within the reach of many poor youth and if it can win you some cash, even better. And if many of those youth are black, well that's the way it is. Not his fault. He went to where he figured there was a need. If anything, going where he did, points to a need for dealing with the poverty issues of too many.”

“Well if someone is killing their chickens by attaching car batteries to them and tossing them into a pool, then yeah, I'll speak up for them. So far I have not seen that happen. Vick is a sadistic [edit] that even disgusts other dog fighters. Then he turns around and tries to claim that he couldn't help himself because he's black and that's just the way black culture is?”

DebbyM on Jan 3, 2013 at 07:30:19

“Those chickens and pigs get treatment that is just as bad (or don't you care about them because they don't lick your hand and follow you around with love in their eyes?) Do some research into how your dinner was abused before it got to your plate. He didn't care about the dogs suffering and you apparently don't care about the suffering of pigs and piglets, hens and tiny chicks. What is your excuse?”

“Do you have any way in which to distinguish past from present? I'm not arguing that MV grew up in a normal home w/ pets galore. Nor am I asking you to forgive him. You people have been carping on this every time the name is mentioned and in this case it was a chew toy. I'm know people who have made dramatic changes in their behavior through traumatic loss. Obviously you don't.”

“I don't know how to make it simpler. His lawyers cut a deal with the prosecutors. You can go look up the details if you want. But he basically plead guilty to "sponsoring dog fighting" and the courts accepted that rather than going through with the rest of the charges of animal abuse.”

“The BC conservative party only started up recently. Whether or not it is part of ther SoCred Party it is a coalition just like the Sask Party in Saskatchewan even though there is still a Liberal Party.”

“We have way more than 3-4 parties. We have 3 MAJOR parties, but pretty much anyone can start up a party. There's even a Green Party rep running around on the hill.

That being said, I laugh at the idea that the Republicans can "learn from Harper" because he is more left than Obama. After all, we have health care (including abortions) and gay marriage. Could you imagine a Republican running on that kind of platform? He'd be crucified!”
