Coliform bacteria was detected in 48% of the beverages and 20% had a heterotrophic plate count greater than 500 cfu/ml. [...] More than 11% of the beverages analyzed contained Escherichia coli [E. Coli] and over 17% contained Chryseobacterium meningosepticum. Other opportunistic pathogenic microorganisms isolated from the beverages included species of Klebsiella, Staphylococcus, Stenotrophomonas, Candida, and Serratia. Most of the identified bacteria showed resistance to one or more of the 11 antibiotics tested.

No wonder they are so delicious.

 

That's a water issue though, isn't it? Soda fountains mix seltzer water or whatever with syrup. So there's probably those nasty things in all the other water as well.

Sorry dude, old news here. Sorry you're just catching it now, but better late than never. I avoid the fountain drinks.

I knew about the ice, not the soda itself. Thought it was relatively safe.

I've been told that all kinds of nasty shit grows in the tubes on beer taps, so I kinda assumed the same shit went on with soda fountains.

 

I generally drink bottled beer, and only drink soda once in a great while, so I'm not too concerned

I layed off the soda a while back anyhow because while it's good occasionally, it's really shitty for you. These have been all around NYC for a minute now:

And the beer thing is true too, many (most?) places do not clean their lines regularly if at all, so you could be drinking some nasyt shit in your brew too.

Fuck soda. I even made a thread with that title once a long time ago. I drink lots of water and sweet tea every so often, thats it. Honestly I don't drink anything carbonated period.

McDonalds fries suck these days, BK has by far the best. BK burgers are also the shit.

 

On the poultry side of things, McDonalds has the best chicken nuggets, while Wendys has the best chicken sandwiches.

 

I don't really eat fast food too often anymore, but it is still amazing sometimes. I also don't really like soda period, I usually only drink it with pizza or buffalo wings. 99% of the time if I'm not drinking alcohol of some kind I'm drinking water

(they dont let people do this anymore, it only worked about 5 times :lol:)

Skim milk always

 

I used to work at a cafe, and one day our milk delivery didn't come with any skim. I called the boss to ask him if he wanted me to go get some at the store, he said "just pour some water into the whole milk, I bet noone notices".

 

Noone did, and after that we never ordered skim milk again haha

!?!? BK fries suck, sorry. Steak fries are the way to go anyhow.

I can't think of any fast food off hand that I would consider 'amazing.'

Hardees is amazing, and they have nice thick cut fries with skin still on em and everything.

 

However, because we don't have that in my region I don't include it in my regular fast food discussions...once a year or so treat for me

fuck it....shit like this never scars me anymore.

germs are everywhere anyway.

 

Truth.

 

Not to mention the whole bottled water false consciousness that is on full blast these days. People afraid to drink tap water because it's dirty or whatever bullshit they squawk about. Bottled water is no cleaner. The only reason to buy bottled water is if you are not around a clean tap or in some country with nasty plumbing, like India. What's next, buying clean air because it's so polluted outside? Gimme a fucking break. This shit is no better than when morons buy duct tape, plastic wrap, and milk in bulk during severe storms.

 

Make sure you wash your hands every time a breeze blows, people! If you don't a terrorist might have killed you with anthrax or Islam germs.
