Had to share this.

New York has approved a ban of any sugary drink over 16 ozs. I don't understand whats going on anymore.

People actually drink sodas larger than 16 oz. at restaurants? Damn that's absolutely amazing, I couldn't stomach more than one in a sitting and I've been drinking Soda since I was 4.

The fighting obesity part is hilarious though, if they really want to fight that they should just ban fast food in general (keep nathan's please!).

Can't you just buy 2 16 oz drinks?

That's what the mayor's defense is:

"if you don't like the law just order two."

Yeah sure I'd totally spend $5.35 for two sodas when the 32 oz. equivalent was $3.85...

Nothing more than a way to make more money. They are hoping more people buy two and thus more tax revenue. Do they really care THAT much about our health? lol

If the curb isn't painted yellow you can sue the city and say you never knew it was there!
