I grew up in Arizona saying pop. I like how most northerners says "pop," most southerners say "coke," and most people near the east OR west coasts say "soda."

I grew up in the Midwest with New Yorker parents and then when I was 17 moved to Texas where I spent 17 years before spending the last 11 in Arizona. In other words I don't know where the fuck I'm from, and I say soda.

As you go from east coast to west coast the sizes of counties and states get bigger. This has always signified laziness to me.

Also, I had to know what "other" might include - so I found this: http://www.popvssoda.com/stats/TOTAL.html

My favorite is "IDIOT IS PANCAKES"

It's not laziness. It's that as the country moved west transportation technology improved. One or two days' journey in 1776 was a lot different from one or two days' journey in 1900. The counties were designed so that people could get to the county courthouse in a reasonable amount of time.

Also, the west is less densely populated. Loving County, Texas (see map), is one of the furthest west of the "small" style counties, and it has a population of only 52 people in the whole county.

Unfortunately, despite your kind foresight in providing an unlimited (or limited to an as yet unknown quantity) character field, you have not also provided any user-accessible Markov process delineation tools by which I may display the simple matrix equation whereby I (existentially) derive that term that I find most appropriate given the specific socio-psycho-political situation in which I find myself desirous of delineating my requirement for a sugared, carbonated beverage. Laying this shortcoming aside, [I find that I am also spurred to make this brief response to your survey that I may remedy the sad dearth of unusual responses that I find are (inexplicably) lacking from your Washington state respondents.] Putting that by the way, I shall bring myself directly to the point and address this issue directly, coming immediately to the point and not beating any further around the bush. I would say, in the fullness of time, all things being equal, taking one thing with another, and--generally--with an eye toward the only certainty that we all live with that the universe is constantly in flux (or immutable--can't remember which)--it rather depends.

I grew up in the South. The generic word for a soft drink was coke. If we wanted anything other than coke, we ordered it by name. I'm assuming that's what they mean by other words. (They could also mean "soft drink" as one of the other words).

edit: I just found the county I grew up in on the map. We were in one of the 80-100% coke counties.

TomAz
01-18-2007, 09:47 AM
i chalked that up to insufficient data. low data volume will result in a lot of noise like that.

plus it looks like every county was assigned a result unless it had "no data". so (i surmise) even a county with only one response gets assigned a coke/soda/pop color. that's not very good science. which is probably why these guys are at East Central University and not at MIT.

edit: or it could be that in certain parts of Alaska there was no option for "whale blubber" or "salmon oil".

When the people you know say "coke" do they actually mean "Coke"? Or is the next questions always "Which kind?"

Here in the San Fernando Valley we say "soda". If you ask someone for a "coke" they will bring you a Coke. Or try to slip you a Pepsi.

Calling all soft drinks "Coke" is just retarded.

"Get me a Coke!"
"Okay, here"
"Wait, what's this? I didn't ask for a Coke! You didn't ask what kind of Coke I wanted!"
"Sorry. Did you want regular, diet, or decaf, or decaf diet, or Mexican/Canadian Coke with sugar instead of the poison known as HFCS?"
"Sprite-flavored Coke."

Strangely enough, the only two substances I refuse to let enter my body are caffeine and nicotine.

That said, why not just say "I'll have a Dr. Pepper" or "I'll have a Coke". Why is there a general "soda" or "pop"? I wouldn't walk into a restaurant and say "I'll have a beer". I'd say, "I'll have a Stella".

because all tissues are equal, except for the ones with moisturizing lotion on them.

Soft drinks have different flavors. Like Otter Pops.

Sometimes I'm open to more than one type of beer or soda. So, I might say "I'd like a beer. What do you have on tap?". Or, if I'm at someone's house I might ask if they have soda and then choose from those options.

You are missing the point here, kids.

In "Coke" places, you ask for a coke and they ask what kind. coke=soda=pop in those places, not just coke=coke

or band-aids? does anyone say "hey, do you have an adhesive medical strip i could use?"

and to answer the coke thing, i think people might say "oh, i had a salad at lunch and a coke", but when they are actually ordering, they would probably say "i'll have a dr. pepper".

i know i do that, i don't drink much soda, but when i do, i order it by what it is (dr. pepper, sprite, ect). but if i was telling someone what i had for lunch i'd say "i had a soda and a sammich".

i also drink soda water, and you'd be amazed at how baffled some people get at that request. my dad always tries to qualify this with "a soda without the syrup" and people get even MORE confused then, lol. they're always like "we don't have that here", umm, yes you do, you see all those boxes of soda syrup in the back? those are combined with soda water to make a whole complete soda!!!

meh, screw all this, i'll stick to iced-tea :)

I used to say Coke, and then one time they didn't ask what kind and brought me a Coca Cola. Since then I've ordered based on the name.
That was actually the first time I had tried Coca Cola (I was 10 years old or something near that) and was pleasantly surprised

I'm from Minnesota and we called the carbonated flavored beverage 'pop'. I moved to California when I was 17 and was educated to the errors of my ways as said beverage is a soda cause it's made with soda water and a pop is a smack up side your head. So now when my Mom visits and she asks for a 'pop' I smack her.

That's too funny. "yeah, I'll have a rum and coke. no, not a drink; rum and a fat rail of blow"

I don't know what the "pop" thing was about. My mom was born and raised in Minnesota (we all know how weird those fuckers are, right?) so I think that's where my "pop" influence came from. But for the last 13 years I have been calling it "soda", though most often I specify with Dr. Pepper
