Step 1: "Ban" Coke, extol virtues of local soft drink.
Step 2: "Invest" in local soft drink.
Step 3. Profit. Take that, capitalism!

/Cynical? Maybe. Correct? Probably. Line those government pockets! It isn't an evil monopoly when it's the local corrupt govt.

zzrhardy: The_Original_Roxtar: how cute... bolivia thinks it matters.

It matters in Boliva you jingoistic moron.


bolivia stops buying coca-cola products
coca-cola sees a 0.3% (wild-ass guess) reduction in revenue.
zero farks given.
bolivia doesn't matter.

Satanic_Hamster: Screw you Bolivia, let the people have the freedom to drink what they want!


My government still won't let me chew coca leaves, which is arguably less harmful than cola...

CSB:

in 2 more weeks is my 1 year soda free anniversary, and as much as that sucks I find I can eat any damn thing I want and not gain any weight. As in 3/4 lb burgers, griezy meat filled pizza, cheezy pasta, half peruvian chicken in one sitting etc etc etc

The twenty-first of December has to be the end of Coca-Cola and the beginning of mocochinche (a local peach-flavored soft drink)

Because communism sucks so bad it can't deal with competition.
Also any bets on who owns mocochinche?

Gyrfalcon: sno man: machoprogrammer: The planets will line up after 26,000 years.

Is he retarded? No they won't. And all of the visible planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) align themselves about once every 100 years, anyway.

From dictionary.com:

hyperbole
Example Sentences Origin
hy·per·bo·le
[hahy-pur-buh-lee] Show IPA
noun Rhetoric .
1.
obvious and intentional exaggeration.
2.
an extravagant statement or figure of speech not intended to be taken literally, as "to wait an eternity."

who's retarded?

You are. The idea that the planets somehow "line up" and thus cause global catastrophe is an article of faith with some fools, and not at all hyperbolic.


Non-idiots don't tack on dates or durations to these hyperbolic events unless those times are equally hyperbolic.

"The stars are right" is hyperbolic.

"The planets will line up after 26,000 years" is not. Or, at least, it's a piss-poor one and deserving of ridicule anyway.

Considering his audience, and that the Mayan calender to which he was referring, and is making a point of exploiting, is nearly 21k years younger than his 26k comment....
How exaggerated is enough for you?
