Apple John Gruber illustrates the dangers of not having a clue about history: "The utter simplicity of the iOS home screen is Apple's innovation. It's the simplest, most obvious 'system' ever designed." Thanks for playing.

Yeah, those Dutch are nuts!

When I order a drink I often go for 7UP and the waitress looks confused at me. Ah, you mean Sprite!

So last time I ordered a Sprite, to prevent this confusing, but it didn't help. Ah, you mean 7UP!

Not sure what happens if I order Dr. Pepper.

Sprite vs 7UP


We have the same issue with Coke/Pepsi. Most pubs/restaurants sell one or the other, and the usual British request will be for a "Coke".. So when I (rare drinker of alcohol) ask for a "pint of Coke", if the establishment only sells Pepsi, the server will always reply "A pint of Pepsi?" It's like a sort of "game". I've never asked for Pepsi, so I don't know what happens in that case.

Not sure what happens if I order Dr. Pepper.


The world will explode! ;-)

I'll tell you a secret.

My wife is away today and she told us to get a pizza. Just for the fun of it I'll also buy a bottle of Dr. Pepper.
