    Well, if water becomes dangerously low, they should shut down the bottling plant. If they don't, money will win out over sensibility, as usual.

    That is the case here. In fact, the water is already really dangerously low.

    People before bottom lines would be a good phrase to use as well.

    If they want Coca Cola more than water then that's their business not ours.

    I'm feeling a lot of racism and zenophobia against Brown people in this thread.

    That's more or less what they did in Idiotocracy. "It's got what plants crave! It's got electrolytes!"

    Are they making it with real sugar or high fructose corn syrup?



    Because I have to tell you, I don't mind one bit paying extra for the Coke made with real sugar. Dr. Pepper as well.
