thus spoke colathustra

Remember the time the Dalai Lama called and said, "Dude, I've been watching the DVD of Natural Born Killers, and you know what: senseless violence rocks." Well, this is sort of like that, only more unexpected. For lately, I have found myself walking past the Diet Pepsi--even when Diet Pepsi Twist is available--and buying Coke Zero instead. Yes, me, the foremost proponent of Pepsi products of his generation, is now opting for a cola made by Coke.* It astonishes me each and every time I do it, and makes me wonder if perhaps now we are living in a world out of equilibrium, maybe even one on borrowed time.

* I know, I know, I shouldn't be drinking cola at all, or soda at all, it is destroying my bones and turning my brain into caulk, etc., etc..

Welcome to the other side, my friend. As we used to say on the playground, Coke rules and Pepsi drools.

I love Coke Zero. There's just something about it that tastes good. I could care less about the zero carbs or whatever reason they call it Zero, but, mmmm. It's really good.

Anon asks: How does Coke Zero differ from Diet Coke? I guess their names and labels are different, and also the colors of their caps. Oh, and, Diet Coke totally sucks, while Coke Zero tastes good.

Diet Coke is made with a completely different formula than regular Coke--it isn't just a sugar-free version. Coke Zero is the sugar-free version; other than using aspartame, it IS made with the same formula as regular Coke. This is why it tastes good.
