proteus_b: yukichigai: Related: I'd like to see a law that requires vendors to use the actual capacity in ounces as the name of the size you purchase.

Why should there be such a law? Should there be a law requiring them to offer small and large? Maybe medium as well? Should there be a law requiring them to make a drink of any size you request, at any price? Perhaps a law insuring that they have your favorite beer on tap? I'd like to see a law that requires people like you to be sterilized as soon as your lunacy is detected.


BINGO!!!!!! YESSSS!!!!

Reductio ad absurdum was the last logical fallacy I needed on today's bingo sheet to get the win. Thanks so much for that.

So you're getting really a large when you pay for a small?  Sounds like a great deal.

Bob Falfa: How long had this been going on? It should have taken fans about 1 beer to notice this.


Can't figure it out on one beer.  You need at least two.  You gotta look at it this way.  First you order the small beer and drink it and then later you order a large beer and drink that.  That's when you first notice that the small and large maybe had the same about of beer but you aren't sure.  So you decide to order another large and small beer to test that theory.  You drink those but you aren't sure yet so you decide to increase your control group.  You down a couple more large and small beers to test it out and then you rip off your shirt and yell at the opposing teams goalie that their a biatch and you could take them in a one on one.  Repeat process each game and soon you realize why it took so long.

KidKorporate: yukichigai: Plush_Cthulhu: Heh, CenturyLink Field here in Seattle (Seahawks) had the same issue a few years ago.

So they can show a pattern of deliberate misrepresentation even.  Lovely.  That'll make the lawsuit go a lot smoother.

Related: I'd like to see a law that requires vendors to use the actual capacity in ounces as the name of the size you purchase.  No "large" and "small", they can only call it "16oz" and "20oz".  Not just for sports arenas either; amusement parks, carnivals, concert venues, outdoor markets... plenty of areas that pull the same crap.

So, Starbucks will actually be OK with the Venti, then?

You should be sterilized immediately.

Confabulat: yukichigai: If the same company owns both arenas and both are engaging in the same type of fraud, that's definitely a pattern.

Companies don't own arenas, they just lease the names.


Well good thing I said "if" then. :P

nytmare: They say the cups are 20oz and 16oz, which is a scam in itself based on the prices charged, but the videos show it's more like a 17oz "large" vs the 16oz "small" size cups which is an even bigger ripoff.


It's incredibly sad that we are losing common sense at such an alarming rate.

You would still get more beer for $8 for two smalls than $7 for the big one and you have two hands. Figure it out.
