Ginger Ale?

Man card. Hand it over.

Go drink a Mind Eraser and say that again. :)

(Layered drink, carefully poured over a bar spoon: 2oz Kahlua, 2oz Vodka, 4oz Ginger Ale. Drink as fast as possible through a straw.)

Plus, I was... 14? at the time (and no, not ordering alcohol haha).

No.

If someone asks for a Coke, you ask "what kind?"
Yes - regular, diet, or cherry :P

That's a mind eraser, not a ginger ale. Therein lies the difference. But at 14... Well I suppose.

We should all forget vanilla and zero... and diet and cherry for that matter.

Bah, vanilla is good! Best in canned or homemade, though.

This map is interesting to me because I've never noticed all the peculiarities in counties aroud shapes the country. that is AWESOME! but yea i think that survey wasn't the greatest. I've never heard a single person in my county call it coke and yet that is what my county is colored.
