When people make fun of the "hot fudge sundae and a diet Coke" combination, that's the same as saying that if you spend money it's stupid and contradictory not to spend more. I mean GEEZ! Why would you spend money AND not-spend it? If you're spending some, you might as well keep spending, even if you don't want to! If you buy a couch, you have to buy a new bed, DUH! ...And this is all assuming the diet Coke means what those people assume it means, which is that the person is "dieting" and therefore being a stupid moron by eating ice cream. I drink diet Coke because I prefer it. I hate regular Coke: it's way too sweet, it never seems cold enough, and it's not thirst-quenching. But I guess I should drink it anyway EVEN THOUGH I DON'T LIKE IT, if I'm eating ice cream: if you eat ONE item with fat and calories in it, you are DUTY-BOUND to eat the maximum possible fat and calories with all other choices you make. That makes NO SENSE.
And speaking of making no sense, "giving 110%" ALREADY made no sense, but now it's getting worse: people are saying "giving 150%" or "giving 200%"---because apparently now 110% doesn't sound like enough. AAAAAAGH. The most you can give is 100%, just as the most you can fill a glass with liquid is 100%. In fact, even "giving 100%" is a huge exaggeration: I suppose there might be occasions where someone would literally be giving 100%, but those times are rare.
