Some people have weird obsessions — Paul Sunby’s is drinking Super Big Gulps and somehow noticing when 7-Eleven decreases its size by four ounces without changing the price.
Paul says he noticed the change when 7-Eleven temporarily stopped selling Super Big Gulps and then reintroduced them with a new cup that contained no size info on the label.
"They still say Super Big Gulp, but they no longer had the 44-ounce size printed on them,
making people think they're the same thing," said Paul.
“The first time, unofficially, I just took the new cup and filled it with water up to the top, and poured it into a legitimate 44-ounce cup from Exxon Tigermarket, and noticed that it didn't fill it up all the way," Paul said. "It was a quarter-cup short. So then I actually filled it back up and poured it into a measuring cup to get the full measurement, and determined it is a 40-ounce cup."
While we find this guy’s enthusiasm endearing, even 40 ounces of a sugary drink is terrible for you and a diet killer.
Stick to water! If you need a caffeine boost, try tea! Sodas, even diet sodas, are not good for you, so steer clear!
