The Soda Conundrum


You know soda is unhealthy when you sit next to an open, almost full can of Pepsi and hear the contents sizzle and spit up who knows what acidic, chemical milieu of nastiness for three hours (I opened it at 12:30 and it is now 3:23!!!). I really need to lay off this dietary supplement. Especially since my "real" age is apparently 25. WTF? P.S. Does anyone actually know what phosphoric acid and citric acid is? Why am I drinking something with acid in it? Better yet, why am I drinking acids I know nothing about?

Forget the acids, the sugar alone is scary.

Haha, yea, I went off soda a long time ago for those reasons. I can barely down one cup of root beer, and that's only when there's nothing else to drink!

Yes, a decalcification of the bones, breakdown of important nutrients such as vitamins and minerals, and causing muscle tissue to degenerate. All good reasons to avoid carbonated drinks. But hey, that bubbly feeling in the mouth, especially when frozen into popsicles...why give that up? Jk, I avoid carbonated drinks too; lately they've been giving me painful stomach aches, so those are definitely out (unless it's rootbeer, and there's vanilla icecream involved, then I might suffer a bit for pleasure).
Oh, and what else could age you? I tried the real age test and got '19.6'. I wonder how they do the tests. Yet if true, very cheerful results.

You may be right, but you make it way too dramatic ;)
