Sorry. Here’s a unicorn chaser.
I realized this about 10 years ago, while messing around in Second Life. Damn my ethics! Doing the right thing is supposed to pay off someday, right?
If you want to make money, let the world wear you down enough to let you to just not care anymore. Then sell out.
What’s the diff?
The thing that annoys me the most: They claimed that the intention was to make … stock.
Because you make stock by soaking vegetables in cold water. Are their product managers literal children?
Maybe they wanted to take a ride on the wave of the popularity of cold-brewing coffee and tea.
That should be a Hallmark card.
Selling out is normal part of the cycle.
I’d say it is polite to raise an apprentice or three before that, though, so you have a replacement.
You mean “Whole Paycheck” customers.
I will forever lament lacking the gene that allows me to either create or sense that smell. I haven’t done the research to determine whether I am dealing but not smelling, or whether I do not, indeed, deal.
Same kind of idea, but sangria is usually also fortified with brandy or some such. Because wine is for pansies.
Am I the only one who stares at the bottled water in the little fridges and wonders why anyone pays for any of these things - not just the bottled water, but the 5 calorie fruit “drinks” that are just water, the sodas that are really just water with some flavoring. I just never “got” beverages. They seem expensive, heavy, and not worth it. Can’t we just drink water?
Sometimes it makes me wish I had a lower ethical bar so I, too, could fleece suckers for all they’re worth. Stoopid morals.
I bought a Soda Stream 6 years ago and have never looked back. I like fizzy, but I don’t like sodium, and Toronto tap water is some of the best ever. Squirt of lime or lemon if I’m feeling fancy and I’m all good.
Those are made in Israel. My rabbi is a fan of it as well. I still don’t really get soda but I agree having your own machine is the way to go if you do want it.
They are. And I love it. Bubbles for lyfe!
I do buy seltzer as I like the fizzy bubbly of it and a touch of flavor if I get orange or lime. Pop, well about one or two a month at best. It amazing how sugary sweet they taste when you do not have the often.
My parents just brought me a case of Ale-8-1 from their trek back from Austin, TX that wended through parts south. It’s not as awesome as Moxie (what is?!?!), but nice.
I can’t stand moxie, or dr.pepper, or etc. The wife likes it though and it is her celebration drink for getting a deadpool score.
