Fizzy drinks are called a 'soda'. If you're referring to unsweetened, unflavoured carbonated drinks then it's a 'seltzer'. Thankfully living in New York I don't hear the alternatives very much, but it drives me into violent unspeakable rage when people call any kind of soda at all a 'coke'. Or worse, 'pop'. They do the former in the American south (sometimes I heard it when I was still living in MD), and the latter in the American Midwest. Unfortunately I have relatives living in the Midwest so not only do they infuriatingly insist on calling it 'pop', they say it with a Midwestern accent--an accent so horrible and repulsive it can spread bubonic plague just by hearing it. Pronounced in the Midwestern tongue, the word 'pop' becomes 'paaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap' and I hate it so much I would punch a kitten.

The death penalty seems like too light a punishment for people who commit these crimes.

It's called "pop". "Soda" is for crazy people.

*Shrugs*  I don't have a problem really with any of its variations.  I find it more fascinating than anything.

Does anybody actually say this outside the relics of the 1950s? I thought that expression died along with saddle shoes.

Also, Antichrist--this disagreement is unresolvable and I'm afraid we can't get married now.

Too late. If you didn't want to get married, you shouldn't have popped the question.

When you reach 18, go wild.  Nothing they can do to stop you medically then.

If I was in the habit of quoting people in my sig, I'd quote that.

Is this just gonna be another one of those situations where I have to cheat on my partner with a horse to get THEM to break up with ME?

Soda, soda pop, pop, coke... I hate it when people seem to get legitimately bothered by it.

"It's soda."

"Yeah, pop."

"No, I mean, it's called soda."

"Soda, soda pop, whatever."

"No, you don't understand...!"



On a hypocritical note, I despize hearing "Duck, Duck, Grey Duck" instead of "Duck, Duck, Goose". The former feels racist! :p

Probably.

I have this urgent feeling that I'm supposed to be doing something important right now. I don't know what it is, or if I've completely forgotten some monumental task, but I can't shake the damn feeling, and it's making me way too anxious.
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?

Waking up with your entire body yelling at you for goddess only knows what reason. My pain meds can't get in me fast enough.

In Australia we always use the word fizzy drink, saying soda or pop just makes people look at you and think "...the fuck?"

Also, if the bitch next to me in the library doesnt turn her phone onto silent I will pimp slap it out of her hand and stomp on it until the loud high pitched message tone goes straight to hell and dies.
