    hahaha, but many of those decompose and become a tree again. In the forest you see many partly dead trees. Some that are still standing, some are partly fallen. Sometimes the rot is already helping a new sapling grow before the last tree is completely gone. Sometimes the stump is still alive.

    Given the talk about how widespread obesity and diabetes have become in North America, and how it has been attributed to the proliferation of sugary soft drinks, it seems so very odd that the market for it has become more homogenized. Or at least it seems more homogenized. The selection of drinks beyond Coca-Cola, Pepsi, 7Up, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, a root beer (usually Barq's or A&W here) and a ginger ale (Canada Dry or Schweppes) has dwindled. Speaking specifically of cream soda, I remember several brands when I was a kid: A&W, Hires, Crush, Dad's, and later Jones. Jones is still around but seems confined to the counters of coffee shops as an expensive alternative to a latte. The bottles at the convenience store were Crush. I don't know what happened to the others; I presume they stopped making the pink concoction altogether.

    I don't think Mountain Dew, Tab and the like are distributed here at all anymore. Not that I really lament their loss. As I said I just find it strange that we have diabetes and obesity 'epidemics', widely attributed to the excess consumption of soft drinks, and yet there are fewer and fewer varieties of soft drinks available.

    True, but I only wanted "a drink" so to speak. Just one to enjoy and savour, that's all. It was like wanting to buy "a beer" but only being able to buy a sixpack or a small keg.

    I enjoy having one good beer at a time. You should try it, it's much more satisfying to me than having a lot of mediocre beers.

    Human beings are fascinating. We don't comprehend that the vast majority of our actions and interactions are not processed consciously. We proud ourselves on being sentient, but perhaps we are only barely conscious.
