Out of the Blue

Today was another triumph in our war against high fructose corn syrup, as not only did we find more Mexican coke at the supermarket (as well as sugar-sweetened Mexican Sprite and Fanta), we also found a single 12-pack of throwback Pepsi. We were concerned the Pepsi may have been old stock from a forgotten corner of the store-room, but it has an early 2013 sell-by date, so it seems another run of this limited edition soft drink may be in production.

I am Cornholio!!!!!!

It doesn't matter what they sweeten it with, it's still horrible for you.

You're absolutely right, zero-calorie diet soda is horrible for me and I should stop drinking it.

I drink diet soda when I'm not drinking Crystal Light, and one thing I noticed is that there is always someone nearby to preach to me about how bad aspertame is every time I do. I've heard a few people on Blues make charges of "organs eventually shutting down" and similar things about it. It seems that unless you abstain from everything except the most mundane, flavorless, and obscure foodstuffs then you are going to die before your time.

I've long since given up. I follow reasonable advice from my doctor about diet, but other than that I eat what I want when I want and pay no attention to food Nazis. If all this jumping through hoops is going to do is extend my mostly unimportant and mundane life by a few years then I have to wonder what is the point? Does the infinite universe give a damn if I live to be 65 or 75? I'd rather enjoy as much of said dull life as I can while I can by doing the few things that actually bring me me pleasure, one of which is eating tasty food.
