First off, I will never whine at the doctor. My choice, my body -_-.

Second. Keep the soda/coke machines. Just don't turn them on til 3pm. That's what my high school did years ago when I was in school.

First of all, it's overregulation (the nonexistent kind people on the right usually cry about, but this is an actual example). Government overstepping its bounds, and all that. Secondly, it's not going to do a damn thing, since in America they have this wonderful thing called "free refills". And I could go on, but the whole thing is just so stupid and petty, that simply talking about it is exasperating.

You want to tackle obesity? Great. Don't make stupid, petty, arbitrary laws. Like the guy eating junk food is going to lose weight because he can only get a 16 ounce cup (which he can refill as much as he likes).
I love reading your posts.

Yes. Granted I don't give a crap about guns for myself. But if other people want guns, they can have them.

I just panic fire in zombie games. I panic fire and run around in circles in black ops. Then I whine. True story.
