    brilliant.

  2. Sad, but true. :)

  3. ThePete says:

    Yes, but what percentage of that pie chart looks like Pac-Man??

  4. nate says:

    Nice! That’s a good one. I think I’ve seen that one done before, though, and I’d be remiss (I think, if I’m correct in my definition of that word) if I fake-copy that idea.

  5. Tom says:

    Good thing – I keep it to almost only water. Every now and then I open a soda (coke, Ice Tea, etc) but only on rare occasions.

  6. ThePete says:

    Nate: Actually, I was referencing the other chart in a snarky “yeah, but will it blend?” kinda way ;)

    Tom: agreed. Water is WAAAY better for you than coffee and especially soda. But I do share Nate’s addiction. A day rarely goes by when I don’t partake in worshiping the caffeine god. However, I can quit any time I want. No, really, I can. ;)

    ThePete: Sorry, I missed that. Text is SO 2004. I mean, couldn’t you have posted a YouTube vid or something. Totally would have cleared that up. sheesh. ;)

    Who’s addicted to caffeine? Not me. I’m just saying I “enjoy” drinking caffeinated beverages. I never said I was addicted at all. Where did you come up with that idea?

    Flame war, commence!

  8. ThePete says:

    Gah! You’re right. I’m ashamed!

    And I am sure you “enjoy” it, too. That’s what I used to call it, too–before the men in the white coats came and took me to the place with the padded walls… O_O

    Out of curiosity, what’s everyone’s favorite drink? I heard water for some.

    I have to say I’m seriously addicted to the new green tea energy drink called Enviga by Coke/Nestea. I honestly don’t want to go a day without it. It’s better (tasting) than coffee to me, and 5 calories (as if I were counting). The downside is (a) it’s carbonated and (b) it uses NutraSweet, which isn’t so good for ya. But hey, in my current lifestyle it’s better than carbonated sugar.

  10. @Nate: I’m so into Dunkin Donuts coffee right now. Iced Tea is second.

  11. jennyjenjen says:

    Oh, coffee. And Red Bull. How would I exist without thee?

  12. nate says:

    Beautiful favorite drinks! I’m a fan of all of those so far.

    Anyone else wish to say what your favorite drink is?

  13. joe says:

    Wow Joe. That was creative.

    Anyone else? What’s your favorite drink?
