I almost wrote a trolling post saying that people who cook meat in the kitchen are being unexcellent to the vegans in the space and to Mother Nature.  Then I realized no-one would get the joke because people would actually think that soft drinks are Serious Business.

It makes me sad that apparently Noisebridge has to take responsibility for the dietary choices of the people who visit, because they couldn't possibly have the wherewithal to make a conscious choice to drink high fructose corn syrup.  

If you don't like it, put up a warning sign and a URL to the "OMG SOFT DRINKS ARE BULLSHIT" web page. 

Will.

As a non-profit, I propose that it's 'unexcellent' for us to retail them, especially when other members are fallaciously promoting them as energy and productivity enhancements. This kind of reminds me of "More doctors smoke camels than any other cigarette".
