    and what did Byron do to make sure the bear didn’t eat his homework and/or his roommate’s/-mates’ homework?

    I’m definitely below average on the soda claim. I don’t think I have had one this year. I think I had one or two last year.

    I have maybe one soda (soft drink) a year but don’t worry I make it up in beers.

    Alexandre Dumas’ son had a pet vulture. This fact was also mentioned in Ripley’s.

    Didn’t have room to write in fewer rather than less?

    Lord Byron certainly was smarter than the average man.

    The town I’m in near the Blue Ridge is way up above average in soda consumption. When I moved up hear from the beach, I couldn’t believe how many fat people there were. I read somewhere that weight gain for males is most influenced by soda; for women it is chips.

    Here is the best free advice you’ll get today: Give up soft drinks BEFORE you get Type 2 diabetes. Once you jump that line, it’s too late. AND you really won’t miss it after you quit.

    At first glance, I thought Lord Byron was holding an iPad, but then I realized it was just the list of classmates his bear was allowed to eat. No one picked on Lord Byron after that.

    I would’ve kept a snake.

    I like to drink soda.

    Take care and may God bless.

    Well, I guess I am less than average… I drink zero sodas per year. Blech! I just don’t like it. And that dorm room must have stunk to high heaven!

    “YOU tell him he can’t have a bear”

    “Are you kidding? I told him he couldn’t have a dog! YOU tell him!”

    “Did you see what that bear did to the LAST RA that went to his room? I’m not telling him.”

    I find it hard to believe Americans drink about two sodas a day on average. I’ve also read that they eat two donuts a day on average, which I can only assume came from a Krispy Kreme survey.

    We call it “pop”. Soda is either an ice cream treat or what you add to cake batter.
