please stop hogging all the free soda!!!

I just figured that this statement is as logical as demanding we stop hogging the H2O products.

Perhaps there is some truth to the concern. If we all drink four sodas a day on the cruise x 4000 passengers, that is 16,000 sodas a day, over 100,000 a week, over 5 million sodas a year. How can DCL handle all that soda? If you stacked 5 million cans of soda, one on top of another, the tower of soda cans would go to the moon, circle back, and end up in Orlando. Something to think about next time you go for that one extra soda on the cruise.

Well, thankfully they don't have to worry about cans. The water for the soda fountains comes from the same place as the drinking water: desalinated seawater, so they're only bringing the syrup and CO2 from shore.

As for me, I make it a point to take full advantage of the soda fountain, bringing my own 64oz insulated mug. One refill lasts the whole day!

Sorry, but the math nerd in me feels compelled to point out that 5 million cans of soda (and obviously they're using concentrated bag-in-box product and not cans, so the point is moot) would be less than 500 miles high.

5,000,000 cans x 6 inches = 30,000,000 inches = 2,500,000 feet = 473 miles+/- (and I didn't measure a can, but they are, I believe, around 6" tall).

So it could reach the International Space Station and back to Orlando, but not the moon, which is about 239,000 miles away...

Why stir the pot? I would hope we could keep the boards friendly.

Yet, you posted in it to keep it going, and started this one to give it new life.

You do realize that is not the case? Everyone here are NOT adults, nor does everyone share the same type of humor.
