AppleOutsider:The purpose of AppleOutsider is to provide an area for discussion of topics that do not relate to the tech industry. The tone of this forum is generally lighthearted and fun.I think Pepsi threads officially belong in AppleOutsider. I wonder if Lance Bass will start buying crates of Pepsi. heh heh Reply 3 of 5 anders Posts: 6,523member September 17, 2002 4:59PM Who wants to drink sugar water anyway?

Reply 5 of 5 pscates Posts: 5,847member September 17, 2002 5:40PM Interesting. I'd go in a heartbeat, but I'm not about to drink a Pepsi.I don't want to go THAT bad.One part of the story disturbs me deeply, however. They mention a reality show where people vie for the chance to take the ride. :eek: I pray that whatever group of hopefuls they put together are NOTHING like the people populating the standard crop of reality shows (The Mole, Big Brother, The Real World, etc.). In other words, no self-absorbed, whiny 20-somethings who think everything is a crisis and can't say three sentences without using the word "like". <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" /> "So, I'm totally stoked for this shuttle trip. Dude, I've seen ALL the Star Trek movies and since I was, like, a little kid or something, I've wanted to be, like, you know, an astronaut? But check it: I'm, like, gonna be the ass-tronaut. Woo-hoo!""Yo, Brad and Kristen are cool and all, but they just ain't got in goin' on. When I go, I'm gonna, like, take my Creed CDs and totally rock out in outer space. Woo-hoo!""Jordan and Melissa and Kirby SUCK! I'm, like, TOTALLY gonna win. Dude, it'll be a PAR-TAY. Get some astronaut nookie, have a couple of beers and just kick back...""If Jennifer...sob...if that lying...sob...bitch wins, I'm gonna be, like, SOOOOO bummed? You know? Waaaahhhhh...I thought she, like, was my friend. And now she's getting in tight with Ashley and I'm, like, gonna get voted off. WAAAAAHHHHHH!!!".Shoot me now, please <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" /> Sign In or Register to comment.
