Banned

that 2-liter bottle of Coke with your pizza delivery,

pitchers of soft drinks at your kid’s birthday party and

some bottle-service mixers at your favorite nightclub.

It scares me that Bloomberg is able to dictate bans like this (or have they actually been legislated?) What is the limit to what he can dictate from the mayor's office?

I get the idea of encouraging people to not kill themselves, but this is just silly.

You want to curb soda consumption, put a tax on it. Call it a fat tax. Hell it already has less nutritional benefits than alcohol and they tax that poo

Using the tax code as a morality bludgeon is not in the purview of the Constitution for a reason

Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated. :)

    • i just took this test again for shits and i got infj, whereas last year i got intj. so my thinking got flipped to feeling but it's still fairly close. other than that, i'm still an introvert but it went down from last year from 72% to 59%. i'm not really surprised because i got a job in nyc in the last year that has forced me to adapt to social interaction. other than that there were no massive changes though.
    • Jesus. A 3-4 OLB at #8? Two major off-field character concerns in the 2nd round? Another slow WR in the 3rd? Never. Gonna. Happen. There's at least a decent chance that his top three picks won't even be on our draft board. Gettleman has said numerous times in the past that guys who aren't scheme fits for us aren't on our draft board. There goes McKinley. Given our past with guys like Carruth and Hardy, there's zero chance that Mixon is on our board. Given Robinson's off-field issues involving a stolen gun, I'd say there's a better than average chance that he's not on our board either. You'd be hard pressed to come up with a more unrealistic mock draft for the Panthers if you set out to try to do just that.
