Crush soda, please do explain this one…

imageUm. WHAT.

I don’t even have any words for this! Literally, that was my whole blog post. Seventy one grams?!

And people wonder why America is so fat… Seriously. This has so much sodium that it doesn’t even quench anyone’s thirst, so you buy another sugary drink five seconds later. Are people this stupid?

Apparently so…

 

On a related note, i’d love to know why Fanta Soda – the same thing, really – in Europe, made by the same company, has only 13 grams of sugar, compared to your 71 grams, yet its taste was incomparable.

But Fanta is another story, namely, on another blog post:

What’s the worth in having a dog if this is how it lives?

Guaranteed, you’ve seen a dog living like this. Most likely, you’ve seen it many times, in many different homes. I’ve seen so many dogs cooped up in a cage all day and they only go out to go to the bathroom. Why bother having a dog if you don’t love them? If you don’t run with them. Play with them. Lay with them. LOOK at them. Anything!

Now, i’m no adopt an animal commercial, but seriously, people should reconsider owning a dog if this is how they live their short life. You shouldn’t own a dog to OWN it. To tell your few acquaintances at work how you have a pure bread mini whatever from Germany like it’s a status.

On a related note, i’ve even been scolded for letting my dog run free around my yard, even if she doesn’t set foot near the road or attack dogs when they pass. I’ve had people come onto my lawn to return the dog as if she was lost (You know, ALL the way from the front yard and all.) People make me sick. I’m done.

(PS- The dog in the picture actually isn’t one of those dogs. That was a setup. Doesn’t he look so sad? Nope! I lied! But he can’t like that pink kennel!)

What happened to FM radio?

So my local station had this new trendy idea to advertise their “commercial free” times during the day.

“Oh my local station does that too! What station?!” 106.1 BLI in case you must know. Wow, look at that! You know that I live on Long Island! Fascinating. Anyway, im sure nearly every radio station in the country, short of a handful of high school radio stations, have been doing the same thing for years.

But they’ll stay commercial free for the same amount of time they would’ve had before with commercial breaks, only this time, they’re advertising for it as if it’s a reward that the station actually plays music. Nice.
