I was at the local public school for an event for my kids last weekend... They had three pop machines in the hall, (all were sold out) prices were $1 per can of pop water cost the same... I was thirsty, so I kept looking

I walked into the teachers lounge and their pop machine was $.65 per pop... Totally full, of course. 

Typical, kids get scammed, but teachers get it 20 feet away for less... Reminds me of the public tax assessments in our area when I looked at the superintendents land, vs his neighbors... His house that was just like his neighbors, except had been upgraded with a full remodel. But, it was $150,000 less in tax value than his neighbor...

Special rules for special fools. Notice bloomberg doesn't make this affect his precious wine that he drinks with his meals... Even though it has the same amount of sugar. He just jacks up the price on the "kids" in the hall, while behind the special door, his friends get special treatment. 
They tremble at my name...

If the ruse is to 'prevent childhood obesity' then there's no reason to make any changes to the sales of wine. Remember, the kids can't protect themselves, and the parents are too stupid to be of any use. it's all about the CHILDREN man.

You keep saying that. Do you know how alcohol is formed?

Unless he's drinking very late harvests, he isn't getting that much sugar.....

Also, the new NYC law, which really doesn't have anything to do with schools, just limits the size of beverage sold to be immediately consumed, not the sale of the item itself. 

Not many times does anyone, except maybe me when I'm having a bit of an existential breakdown about what I'm doing in my life, buy and chug down 64 oz. of wine at a time.

Hahaha. A 6 oz. glass of coke only has 54 times as much sugar as a 6 oz. glass of wine.

They're practically the same! Wake up people!

edit- wine not win. Although it could be construed as such.

To be fair, the wine has about 13% more carbs, and 100 some more calories at the same amount. 

And I had no idea wine packs that much protein, damn.

Most of the sugar in wine/beer/cider/hooch/alcohol is consumed during fermentation. Yeast eat sugar, poop booze. 

I don't know about you guys, but I graduated highschool in 2009 and it was an interesting time to be in highschool because I got to watch the "school food" laws take place. I forget the specifics, but my freshman year the food was relatively decent and definitely edible. I remember being able to buy chicken fingers, french fries, pizza, and a whole plethora of bad-for-you food, as well as a lot of less obese food. 

My second year a lot of the school food laws took place, and it was terrible. I am trying to not sound like a whiney American white kid, but the States effort to force schools into "healthy" lunches really killed any desire to eat food in school, and a fair percentage decided to stop eating school food entirely. I remember everything possible was turned into whole wheat, albeit a cheap crappy whole wheat. The school continued selling the generic hamburgers/pizza etc, but after everything became "healthy" it became disgusting.

My guess is, "unhealthy but definitely edible" food is pretty cheap to sell, and the more healthy offerings were more expensive so we got stuck with the lower end crap. I remember salads were downright terrible.

I think by my seinor year my lunch was a bagel. During lacrosse season I would eat cookies about an hour before practice.

The thing about food at school is generally you don't need to change what is served. Portion sizes might be a different story, but a normal, growing person who is active in after school sports can easily burn off the calories from even the most "unhealthy" meal.

Given no silly additives and a more or less decent salt level "nice" unhealthy foods can be served.

Basically burn the same number of calories you are taking in and it isn't a problem.

I don't see why an entire school should be forced to eat bad food because of some lazy kids/parents. I also don't agree with the concept of a few defining the rules for the many. Especially in school make the fatty kids realize they are being picked on by singling them out for "special diets" and most of them will change their attitudes due to peer pressure. Telling them it is ok to be fat and trying to control the what, one possibly two meals they eat in a day isn't going make them change.

There is probably a reason I'm not a child psychologist.

Not to nitpick but have you ever cleaned up an accident which involved unsecured animals and speeds in excess of about 100kph?

It ain't pretty to have an unsecured animal that can weigh as much as a kid slam around the inside of a vehicle when you come to an immediate stop.

Also, who drives around with a cat in their car that ISN'T in a box, tied down, and probably on tranq's?

More than that- is that pets can CAUSE accidents if they're not belted in. (duh?) I responded to a wreck one day where this little toy dog had climbed into the lap of the driver who tried to shoo it away. while she was distracted, she customized the front end of her car with a utility pole. Dog was perfectly fine, woman had a crack in her face. Banning unsecured pets in a car makes even more sense to me than banning cell phone use to be honest.

You laugh? Goats and cows are legitimate driving concerns on the N2 highway near the airport here.

That being said there are still plenty of wild Kudu, Impala and even some Springbok around. Not here mind you, there are probably small duiker around here. In the mountain passes it's Chacma Baboons you have to worry about.

I gotto do cleanup on a Flying Squad K9's intercept car tha had ended a high speed chase in an accident. The screen separating the K9 from the humans was imprinted with the outline of a German Shepard. It was rather grisly.
