Misinformation


While I was piling up my recyclables I happened to read the back of my Diet Coke 12 pack. I saw what was characterized as "misinformation". To wit:

  • "A Diet Coke and 5 minutes of quiet time can be rejuvenating" - uh... isn't it a stimulant? Don't these 2 cancel each other out?
  • "A walk during lunch can be energizing and relaxing, just like a Diet Coke" - what is this 1984? Orwellian double-speak?

Very strange.
