Coca-Cola is about to shake things up, so to speak, and consumers aren’t happy. The soda company announced on Tuesday that Coca-Cola Zero Sugar — its popular, no-sugar beverage — would be getting not just a...

They can't go there again.  It was lucky marketing many years ago with "New Coke".  Give it a rest Coke...

They cannot accidentally catch that lightning in a bottle again.

As I sat down to dinner earlier tonight, I thought "I should take a picture and post it to the TST food thread."  

I had been a good cook, but I think I've improved in the past year or so.  I also bought a barbecue a few weeks ago, and have used it a few times, although tonight's dinner was stovetop.  Scallops, shrimp, and peas.  I suppose I could post the steak from my inaugural usage of the grill a few weeks ago, but I don't know if that defeats some of the spirit of the thread.

This was yummy but it was not my best presentation-wise.  The latter is something I've neglected the past year or so in my cooking, so I should work on that.

This could not affect me less. I'm allergic to artificial sweeteners. 

However, I still disagree with the article saying this could be the biggest change Coke has ever made.... Who could forget "New Coke"?

I don’t think you read the article.

I actually did. They said something about the boldest move Coke has made since some suggestion about adding marijuana to Coke. I'm saying this change to Coke Zero is nothing compared to when New Coke came out in 1985. They actually discontinued the current Coke and people lost their minds. They were hording it like toilet paper pre-pandemic. People sold it for a hundred bucks a case. People were actually travelling abroad to bring back the old formula. After about 3 months Coke bent to the horrible beating they were taking in the media and reintroduced Coke as "Coke Classic". It was a crazy story that occupied a ton of news during the summer of 1985. 

So, my point is tweaking Coke Zero isn't as bold as discontinuing Coke. That's all I was trying to say.

That’s quite different than “this could be the biggest change Coke has ever made”. The article didn’t say that. But you said it did.

So…

The article covered “New Coke,” too.

Yeah, I know. I read the article and then did some other stuff before commenting on it. So, I probably wasn't as clear as I could have been. :beer:

My top dish down in Myrtle Beach...

Seafood Risotto, basically lots of different kinds of seafood cooked in a rose' cream sauce served over risotto. One of the best dishes I've had in a long time. I had some good meals this past week, this one out did them all.

    • I don't like BDC's hat hat because: 1) My personal fashion sense tells me that to pull off wearing a driver cap, one needs to have a certain "it" factor. I don't think Bryson has it. 2) The hat, which is also the log for BDC's "brand", reminds me of all of the times he has put his foot in his mouth. Like yelling at a camera operator about damaging his brand, arguing with a rules official about fire ants and OB line, slow play, the whole Brooks feud thing, making stupid comments about the vaccine, etc. 3) Even without reasons #1 and #2, I think driver caps aren't a good look. Seeing him in a regular hat, he just looked like a golfer representing the US, without all the negative things associated with his image/brand. I won't comment on his manliness, but I am a huge fan of BDC the golfer. I don't care for his non-golf persona/brand, but I think what he has done with his game is remarkable, and he's backed up his approach with a US Open win, multiple tour wins, and a good performance at the Ryder Cup. I look forward to watching him play every week.
    • Hmmmm, that doesn't really track: SG:OTT 2021: 0.660 (4th) 2014: 1.367 (1st) SG:App 2021: 0.403 (35th) 2014: 0.602 (4th) SG:ATG 2021: 0.118 (71st) 2014: 0.022 (93rd) SG:P 2021: 0.187 (66th) 2014: 0.274 (41st) Scoring/SG:Total: 2021: 70.043 (16th)/1.368 (7th) 2014: 68.827 (1st)/2.266 (1st) He's 0.898 strokes worse per round than he was in 2014, and 0.707 of that comes from driving, with another 0.199 coming from his approach shots. What's 0.707 + 0.199? 0.906, which is > 0.898. He's actually gaining 0.305 shots around the green and putting now, when he gained 0.296 in 2014. So, nah, I think his driving and approach play have tailed off. He can't hit wedges very well, either.
    • Already addressed, but to point out again… all of the rules are pretty "arbitrary."
    • Extensions in graphite are a bit tricky because it's difficult to remove them without damaging the shaft. That being said, the simple way to do it is just cut off the extension at the end of the shaft. You will still have the 2 inch piece of extension base down in the shaft but it only weighs a few grams so you won't likely even notice it's there once it's been cut and gripped again.
