    Hey Johnlastname - Your reading of Martnitony's posting is spot on my friend. You went for the meaning of the message (the more substantive approach), while I went for the method of the message's delivery (it's unfairness). Although different aproaches, both are right. GLTA.

    All joking aside, Martinitony, you should see a therapist about your anger towards Seth. Based on what you revealed about yourself (assuming it's true), you're at least in your sixties (you have a 39-year-old son) and clearly have a wicked chip on your shoulder towards those younger than you. You also claim to have been in real estate, so you have undoubtedly been made bitter by being scorched in the boom-to-bust cycles in the 70's, 80's, 90's, and 2000's.

    Your age and experience do not give you license to attack those who are younger than you, nor do they justify maligning someone in their profession because you disagree with them. Unfortunately for you, and as painful as it may be, you are not accorded reverential treatment and a presumption of knowledge based solely on the length of your life as is done in many of the Native American cultures. In the larger American culture, as on this board, you are judged by what you contribute (on this board, information or bluster), how you deliver the contribution (on this board, logically or irrationally), and how you treat people (on this board, respectfully or disrspectfully).

    Whether you agree with him or not, Seth provides the board with valuable information and insight, and he presents it logically and respectfully. You provide negative and bitter bluster, you are incapable of applying or even recognizing simple logic, and you use disrespectful ad hominem attacks against those with whom you disagree. You behave the way you do because you think the world owes you reverence and deference, and you seeth with anger when someone demonstrates greater knowledge (like Seth), or worse, calls you out and exposes your flaws (like me).

    Do yourself a favor, take one hour a week from your posting on this board and see therapist. I guartantee you'll be a happier man with a happier family. GLTA.

    Seth - Martinitony and Urawhackjob2 (a name he chose while looking in a mirror) are clearly not the sharpest tools in the shed, but they are definitely both tools. I find it comical that the Whackjob is following the lead of the logically-challenged Martinitony. I'd say it's the dumb leading the dumber, but the two seem to be stuck in the same rut, both with a nasty case of explosive verbal diarrhea.

    Martinitony/Whackjob - maybe it's time to visit the message board for Depends. Good luck with allllllll that fellas.

    Why SODA won't take hold in Americas

    Bonanazagrade - It's true that SODA represents a greater cost savings in Europe, but not as much as you're suggesting. Both KO and PEP do a great business in Europe despite being marginally more expensive than SODA. It is my belief that SODA will continue to grow in the US and the world because it has four fundamental drivers: it's green, it's healthier, it allows custimization, and it's cheaper. Even if it is a wash as to cost, the first three drivers represent three of the strongest trends in commerce. What's more, the goal behind each trend is sufficient motivation for it's adherents to adopt SODA and abandon KO and PEP. Concern for the environment and efforts to combat obesity are in vogue and are here to stay, and the best and most aggressive retailer in the world (SBUX) says the future of carbonated soda is in customization (which SODA represents and KO/GMCR abhors). What John Candy said in his unforgettable role as Dean Andrews in the movie "JFK" applies equally well here: KO "has the right tata (home-carbonation space) but the wrong hoho (GMCR)." GLTA.

    Bcartertrade - I admire your persistence, but getting Martinitony to understand logic is like trying to teach a fish how to drive. Neither Martinitony (metaphorically) nor the fish (literally) can reach the pedals. GLTA.

    Who sells at the bottom?

    Bcartertrade - You're spot on in your description of Martinitony's logic-less argument. In his most recent postings we have again seen Martinitony use multiple illogical and inconsistent arguments to defend his belief that SODA cannot succeed, and that all opposing opinions are wrong. The use of multiple and inconsistent arguments is referred to as "Kettle logic." The use of Kettle logic comes from a fear of embarrassment that a person thinks they will experience if they offer one argument and it is proven wrong. They indiscriminately throw out multiple contradictory and weak arguments because they are unable to come up with one good one. Freud wrote that Kettle logic, a descriptor that he coined, is related to the embarrassment dream of being naked in a public place; that is, being exposed for what you really are for the whole world to see and laugh at.

    Honestly, I think we have all spent enough time trying to convince Martinitony that his arguments are logic-less rants. I am truly convinced that he is incapable of logical thought and appreciating the use of logic by others. That being the case, responding to any of his posts is literally a waste of a time; neither he nor we can profit from an exchange of ideas. Although he has every right to post on the board, I think we should all refrain from answering his illogical posts. He deserves our pity, as does his wife (Olive?), but not our time and energy.
