Coke and Pepsi agree to quit selling at schools

Well ain’t this a wonderful thing:

Coke and Pepsi agree to quit selling pop at schools

Oh this makes them look like such a great company, helping fight teen obesity and all. They are even giving up all their sales and such.

Anyone thought of this? All the kids are just gonna walk across the street and buy it at the local convenience store and spend an extra $.25 because of taxes and the fact that it’s not coming out of a vending machine. Wow, Coke and Pepsi actually stand to increase profits off this move. Unbelievable.

Scott Adams on Pay Equality

gender_payThis is a subject I like to follow because I don’t think there is any real answer but I like to hear the theories.  Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, weighs in:

I have a hobby of asking men and women, and boys and girls, if they would prefer to be CEO of a major company or enjoy an easier lifestyle with less money. About half of all males say theyíd take the CEO option with all of its downsides. Females occasionally opt for the hypothetical CEO lifestyle but not often.

Two kinds of people in this world…

towelThere are two kinds of people in this world. Those that use a new towel every time they take a shower and those that donít. No particular reason for posting this other than the fact that I was washing towels and thought back to college when there was some guys that used the same towel all year it seamed like without washing it. (These same guys also went months on end with the same sheets). Me? New towel every time.
