Diet coke causes cancer and death. We know this because aspartame has been connected in various studies to rotting the brains of lab rats. Forget it's non-sugary deliciousness, that sh!t is awful. You may think it's harmless, but YOU ARE WRONG!

Diet coke has become a cultural phenomenon. Men drink it. Women drink it. 100% of all people who consume diet coke will die. This is a scientifically incontrovertible fact.

The meaning of all of this is simple. Diet coke is symbolic of the capitalist oppression by the cola industry. It is a drink towards death of the mind, death of the spirit and death of society. It's vast consumption has perpetuated a diabolical phenomenon of warfare waged by the evil cola companies against its consumers. It is emblematic of the pain and suffering and woe and other sh!t that businesses wage on consumers and workers.

The new path foreword is is simple. We must storm the cola companies! No longer should they be allowed to make profit on the brain rotting horror of their product!

Viva la revolution!

6/10. Good idea, solid execution. Lost points because its been done several times before and because it was far too short to be reasonable parody.

What doesn't cause cancer. Anything can cause cancer in a lab rat.

Meh, I'll drink it if there is nothing else.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

I was just having a conversation with a customer today about how startled I am at how much Diet Coke people drink. I always thought regular soda was the main product of soda companies, but where-ever I've worked serving food, Diet Coke always is far and away the best seller. It's kind of sick if you think about it... these people even LIKE the taste of it better, they've been drinking it so long.
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

Additionally, there is the fact that one of the main causes of the Mentos-Diet Coke experiment's success is the aspartame from the Diet Coke.

Please help raise money for a Christmas gift for airmax (although he is Jewish, as YYW pointed out). He is in desperate need of a new laptop, and he has done so much for this site; he certainly deserves one. :)

It does seem pretty f*cking stupid that you deserve to have thousands of times more wealth than anyone else because you have a magical right of ownership over the work of thousands of people who actually bottle, transport and distribute coke. If you wanted to do a real radical critique you'd probably start by looking at how their advertising has absolutely nothing to do with the product.
