    It's a plot to trick people into exercising by making multiple trips for free refills. It is also a plot to make restaurants go broke by not being able to sell larger drinks....and therefore being forced to give away more free refills, or lose customers by charging for refills.


    Remember kids: Uncle Sam knows best.

    With fast-food restaurants allowing free refills, you can just refill that 16-oz several times. So banning larger cups won't accomplish anything. You can't force people to care about their health. For some unknown reason, restaurants don't seem to offer any diet drinks other than Colas, and I don't like Colas.

    It's more than just a "nanny state". It's ever increasing governmental control over every aspect of our lives, a few soda ounces at a time.
