How angry does this pic. make you?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created June 19, 2012 at 5:25 PM

A few months ago, there was a thread asking if you hate fat people. I replied no, but I really hate food companies.

This bus shelter ad for Coke just burns me up. I feel like it's just preying on a captive audience which might not necessarily realize that this stuff is poison in the long run.

To make matters worse, it's right next to a Wendy's which as you can tell from the flag in the background, is "open late".

Am I just over-reacting and becoming a paleo-zealot ?

Mike

Disability can happen to anyone at any time for reasons unrelated to your lifestyle choices. That's what insurance is for. You are insuring against your own risk, not just paying for others. Why don't people ever get that? Also, it's not "Darwin at work." This type of advertising is targeted at low-income communities precisely because they have worse access to quality health information and the educational skills to seek it. They have less resources and poorer quality schools. It's a cycle that companies like this prey upon. We are all privileged to have access to the various (cont'd)

Losing weight has been good for me, but it didn't solve the bigger issues in my life. Like having a disabled kid, who has trouble accessing services because of the nature of her disability, or not being able to work because of the plethora doctors and specialists she has to see. Or the hideous truth that if I gave her up into care, the foster parents would get 4 grand a month to care for her, and I get $300. Losing weight doesn't change that. I was happier when I weighed 130, but then I was a teenager, and had yet to have any real truth dumped in my lap.

Would it hurt them so bad if they offered just water, in the same foutain drink, for 89¢ ? Like you, the little things make me sad to.Mostly I'm very sad to see unhealthy and stunted-growth children, and i can't say anything. I just want to hug the child, take him home and feed him real food so he can grow. It feels like my heart is being squeezed, it's so painful.

The local gas station fountain drinks.... You can get a 1.5 liter cup of soda for 89¢. Geez, atleast they should offer Diet! They only have thefull-sugar ones I don't even want to know how mucn sugar there is in 1.5 liter... When it's really hot the machine has quite a line. If only they offered Diet I would feel *as* bad for people.

I don't agree. People of lower income have to see a lot more advertising for poor quality food. This soda ad is at a bus stop, not a gas station. Think of how lower income people get access to news and media. TV? good luck not having to be force fed images of combination Pizza Hut/Taco Bell restaurants. Going grocery shopping at a food max? There are many more displays and placements of sugar laden beverages in WinCo and FoodMax stores in comparison to more upscale grocery stores.

Simple adbust for this one - cover area where happiness is with similar colored background and sub "diabetes" for happiness. Add some 000s after the 89 and "cost per year of diabetes". Have fun, don't get caught if the judges in your town don't have sense of humor.

No. It's not going to do any good to set fire to the local Pepsi distributor. In this case, "getting even" means taking responsibility for your own health and doing what you can to get the message out.

Creative getting even can be fun and educational. I favor adbusting.

I guess it doesn't make me angrier than the million other ways people are sold "happiness". On the flip side, I get super annoyed at weight loss companies that sell weight loss as a cure to all unhappiness. "Lose weight, and you will instantly be more popular, get a better job, and your car will start every time." To me, and I fully admit to being a no-good pinko commie, bleeding heart leftist, it's all distraction from the real problems that make people unhappy. And our weird determination that we're all supposed to be running around like idiots on fistfuls of prozac (okay, I'm a cynic as well)is, well, our main problem.

But I do see your point.

"Eat to be happy, lose weight to be happy, read this self help book to be happy, listen to this guru to be happy, if you're unhappy, it's because you choose unhappiness, and poor people just don't want money."

I think I've just decided to fully commit to being a curmudgeon. It will make me happy.

Losing weight has been good for me, but it didn't solve the bigger issues in my life. Like having a disabled kid, who has trouble accessing services because of the nature of her disability, or not being able to work because of the plethora doctors and specialists she has to see. Or the hideous truth that if I gave her up into care, the foster parents would get 4 grand a month to care for her, and I get $300. Losing weight doesn't change that. I was happier when I weighed 130, but then I was a teenager, and had yet to have any real truth dumped in my lap.

Simple adbust for this one - cover area where happiness is with similar colored background and sub "diabetes" for happiness. Add some 000s after the 89 and "cost per year of diabetes". Have fun, don't get caught if the judges in your town don't have sense of humor.

Some might try to get you for vandalism. It would be a hard case for them to win. IMO this is a low risk:high reward (at least for your own fun and mental health) activity

I'm with Paul Root Wolpe on this- persuasion and control are not synonymous. Misleading phraseology is a great marketing ploy as well.

i dunno. anger isn't a right or wrong feeling it just is. take the anger and do something with it or just let it go. there is nothing productive or healthy to it if it just hurts you. channel it into action or just accept it and move on.
