Perhaps the motivations are open to misinterpretation.

On one hand, someone may find that coding tasks drive them to seek distraction with alcohol. On the other, someone may find that being drunk drives them to seek distraction with MATLAB.

Look on the bright side, at least an LCD monitor is a lot easier to throw across the room than a heavy CRT.

Is Baja Blast called "pop" or "soft-drink" or "soda" ?

Do you have three hands, or is that just a really long straw?

Can't believe 'tears' has 8 votes so far 😂 Not clear it's tears of joy or tears of sadness at this moment. I'm wondering if 'tears' is an option in the poll, how many votes we will get? haha.

I feel compelled to ask: what's your favorite flavor?

Growing up, I used to drink "strawberry" flavored milk. Coffee milk is a thing in Rhode Island but as a coffee drinker, I can't recommend it. Chocolate is still a favorite though.

Chocolate milk is (almost) always good. But in practice, it is mostly the little 250 ml snack drinks from the corner Korean store, such as Banana, or Strawberry, or Lychee/Peach (which is a bit odd at first, but surprisingly tasty.)

The Japanese / Korean Green Plum drinks can also be quite refreshing. And I buy 24-packs of snack soy milk or snack black bean drink.

I can't keep Chocolate Soy Milk in the house; I go through a 1.5 litre container of that in about 2 hours.

No coffee for me, though; it tastes bad to me even in fairly low concentrations.

Around here, you pour yourself a pop from the soda-fountain that is right beside the soft-drinks cooler -- which also contains the iced tea.
