Further evidence that america blows and caters to the lowest common denominator:

Canada gets REAL coca-cola.

Yeah. That's right. It's got sugar in it. Just like coca-cola used to have in this country. But we americans are too "stupid" to understand the taste between sugar and corn-syrup. Plus there is some preferential treatment being offered to our farm/corn industry. (???!)

Trust me, the taste difference is huge. I had some canadian coca-cola last night from the can and it was like a time-warp to back when I was a kid and this stuff was this way in this country:
When you pour
it into the glass, the fizz is real fine and has a light hiss, and it slowly but surely settles down to the surface, creating an echo-like effect as it does so.

You don't get that with corn syrup. It's much bigger bubbles and is stickier.

This doesn't even touch the health benefits of corn syrup vs. sugar. CS sucks.

I'd be willing to pay extra to get coca-cola with real sugar in it ... but ... sucks to be me, I'm a dumb fucking american what do I know? Pour me shit and make me like it...

We are the stupid unwashed masses.

Oh and as for the comment of I can leave any time I want? You know what? It's just as likely for me to kick your ass out, as far as that's gonna happen.

How the hell did we let this happen???
If we're
the best in the world, why do we get the worst, the cheapest, the shittiest, the least complicated?

We grew complacent...among a lot of other things.

Ever since they removed cocaine, Coca-Cola has gone downhill.

Ok, so passover is coming up.

I'm stocking up. Like big time ... 1 years supply. Maybe 8 cases of Pepsi and 8 cases of Coke.

Galen suggested this as well. I'm astonished they'd go through so much effort to make two different versions ... but then.. I guess they just temporarily give the US the other-world formulas ... har har. Yolks on us!

- Keman, now celebrating passover. :P

Because Canada won't let Coca-Cola use corn syrup in cans and bottles shipped north.

And as I said yesterday, if you have a problem with the United States, then get out. No one is stopping you.

No actually I'd rather get people to open their eyes to kick out the folks who are coming up with these decisions that are dragging us down.

You're either part of the problem or part of the solution, which is it?

Big words from someone who repeatedly tells me to leave the country if I don't like it here.

Not .. how to suggest changes.

Not ... how to make changes.

Not.. how to voice them.

Leave? ... well that's what I made you do exile. Your name is a self fulfilling prophesy...

I am just suggesting that you would be happier in a nation that is not full of "morons". How would your leaving benefit me?

Most people I know who have tried both versions prefer the one with sugar. I know I did when I went to Europe.

Why don't we have it? Government subsidies for corn growing -- the same reason we're doing this whole retarded ethanol thing.

aaww dont nock on alternate fuels, its a good thing we use them. beats paying our farmers to keep their land empty so we dont have surplus corn/soy beans. E85 fuel is auctually pretty good stuff, at a minimum its 110 octaine and much cleaner burning than gasoline. and biodiesel just rocks. i run it in my car and it has improved my fuel economey to around 55 miles per gallon. and its sulfer free and cheeper to make than minieral diesel.


but as in regards to the whole coke thing, im not a big soda drinker. but being a bit of a traveler you can taste the difference in all soft drinks. most of what i drink is ither made in south africa, or egypt. and they both use real sugar. speeking of nistalgia, when was the last time you drank soda from a can that had a pull off tab, and the can was so thick you couldent crush it with just one hand. or for that matter, even a bottle. but one of the best things soda wise, is all the different flavors of fanta here. when was the last time you had real orange soda, or grape, strawberry, mango, pine apple. they have about 15 different flavors of fanta sodas here...

so for lack of good soda, and cool diesel cars and trucks we cant import to our country, is it all worth it? humm... its tough for me hehe...

I don't believe Tube is refering to ethanol as an alternative fuel, but as a replacement for MBTE. Basically, after California switched to ethanol as an octane booster, everybody's fuel economy went to shit.

The ethanol supporters like to point at MBTE and scream, "OMG, it causes cancer!" but really, just about everything in gasoline causes cancer. You're not supposed to drink it.

Small correction: MBTE and ethanol are used for oxygenating gasoline, not as octane boosters. My apologies.

MTBE's problem is that it is exceedingly toxic, volatile, and very slow to break down in its pre-burned state... and likes to leach into ground water. Trust me... motorcycle riders throughout CA are painfully aware of how nasty MTBE is. :( :(

Since 1922, they've used only cane sugar.
