Think you're really getting another dollar's worth of soda? I think not! They make a bigger profit when they sell you a bigger soda, so the more reasonable sized options aren't even there anymore. It's the profiteering, and the preoccupation with big-ness that's our problem. The trouble runs much deeper than the big sodas.
    Then don't go to the movies if you feel so stronly about that.

    I know it's not right, but with prices being that high I really don't blame people for wanting to sneak stuff in.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
