    Hi all,

    New here.

    I just took this poll on electro-mech, a company that makes high school sports scoreboards, about whether schools should be allowed to sell "sugary" sodas in their cafeterias. I voted that they (the schools) should decide what to do themselves. And nearly half said kids should drink what they want.

    Wanna take the poll? Let me know what you vote.

    PS: Scroll down to bottom of the website page to find it. :eusa_hand:

    Personally, I don't see anything wrong with it. :)

    C'mon, nothing wrong with sodas in school? What's the matter, American kids not fat enough already? They need several cups of extra sugar a day? Maybe to help them concentrate during class?
    C'mon folks, get a grip. Sugary sodas are bad for EVERYONE, not just kids.

    Wait, I thought American kids were hopeless anorexics badly influenced by the media? What happened to that one? :eusa_eh:

    Maybe we should ban them. Freedom of choice is over-rated anyway. :)

    As boring as school is they should dispense alcohol and weed. At least that would make it more tolerable. Oh fuck I'm drunk again. :)

    Just for those who never had kids, Sugar makes you sleepy. In kids, this is exhibited as hyper activity.

    Sodas in school are a recipe for ADD behaviors. If mom wants to pack a soda for darling herself that is one thing, but the food dispensed at schools should be low in sugar so as to help them avoid the bad behaviors.
