I have something to say about another unimportant news item and I'm just as surprised about it as you are.

cnn.com is reporting on a new type of Diet Coke:

Diet Coke Plus, slated for a spring launch, will be the first nutrient-enhanced carbonated soda to be offered by a major brand... Next year, rival Pepsi will introduce a line of enhanced carbonated drinks called "Tava"

I've got a better name for your new line of enhanced carbonated drinks, Pepsi:

Yes, Pepsi Perfect. If you recognize that logo, you have a sharp eye and you've seen Back to the Future Part II more times than you really needed to. And if you've read the novelization (something else you probably didn't really need to do), you know that Pepsi Perfect is a vitamin enriched Pepsi that's sold in 2015. So we're a few years ahead of the game on this one. Still waiting for flying cars, a magazine-size sports almanac that has every college football game and horse race in the past fifty years and gas stations that talk like Speak & Spells.

The real question here is why it took Coke and Pepsi so long to come up with this. I mean, seriously Coke and Pepsi, what are you guys doing that's so important you couldn't stick some riboflavin or whatever in your sugar water and come up with a different name for it?
