having finished portal 2 yesterday I can't help but think that there is some sort of correlation between this and a lack of innovation
TheSupafly
Eric seems like a hard guy to talk to.
Vicious
When I meet Eric, I'm just going to carry him around on my back like Yoda.

When, not if.

Tom Collins
I fond him normal.

Sorry, Erik.

PS: mail me some jerky; I'm starving.

freedoom
all i can think about now is "om nom nom nom" coming from Gabe Newell.
FABIO
Is there any substance more inert and useless than caffeine free diet coke? Why not just bust out some fruit juice at that point?
Lurchi
fruit juice has a lot of sugar

drink nothing but water, iced tea, or black coffee

moron

FABIO
Fruit juice can also mean orange or grapefruit.

Keep sucking on your corn syrup, fatty.

Lurchi
...

FABIO
NOBODY INSULTS MY ARTIFICIALLY SWEETENED FOOD COLORING!

Lurchi
What are you even talking about?

Caminante Nocturno
Why don't you two just start making out and get it over with?

FABIO
Who want to make out with a fatty?

An average person drinking caffeine free diet coke isn't that strange.

A 600 pound man having a stockpile of soda placebo on hand is kind of tragic.

If Lurch can't recognize the spectacle in that and starts talking about drink nazis instead, I don't even want to imagine how many jelly rolls he's sporting.

Am I seriously reading someone advocating the consumption of caffeine-free Diet Coke over fruit juice?

Samisyosam
Fruit juice isn't that good for you. Eating actual fruit is good for you. You want more plant matter in your body slowing the absorption of fructose; 'extra pulp' OJ doesn't count. If you drank as much grape juice as some people drink soda on a daily basis, you'd end up just as fat and diabetic as the people you see exiting Wendy's on a mobility scooter.

Mother_Puncher
I drink Coke Zero but I'm not a fan of the caffeine. And it depends on the fruit juice. I try to avoid sugary stuff especially high fructose corn syrup. I'm also not big on the snacks listed. I feel like if I just sat around all day eating sugary, fatty foods, I'd feel like shit all the time.

simon666
I'm not sure what's going on in this thread, but I'm 5 staring it.

spikestoyiu
Which magical "fruit juice" are we talking about here? Because there are many. It helps to be specific.

spikestoyiu
Did you know SANDWICHES are bad for you?

Anaxagoras
No, it really doesn't matter that much which fruit juice we're talking about. Samisyosam is correct; pretty much all fruit juices aren't that good for you, given today's average diet. They're all high in sugar but low in fiber.


Did you know that Spikes doesn't know much about nutrition?

spikestoyiu
Is that because I suggested that not all fruit juices are created equal? Or because I was confused that someone would recommend Diet Coke over the ambiguous "fruit juice"? Or is it because you're jealous of my eight pack?

Obviously eating fruit is an infinitely better idea than attempting to drink it, and I'm not sure what kind of numbnuts would suggest otherwise. But nobody said that.

numb
I can't believe it's not butter?

CornOnTheCabre
stop drinking iced tea you dumb piece of shit

I worked for a digital interactive agency and for a while it had this kind of snack room as well. Fat people eating fat fucking food all day in their fat faces. It was gross.
Vicious
We've all seen your Christmas video, George Wendt.

balistic
I gained about 30 pounds in my 3 years at Blur.

50-60 hours weeks plus free snacks/beer plus no self control.

Ugh.

Menudo con queso
And this snack room never, ever runs outta sausage -- wokka wokka wokka!
oswaldtheluckyrabbit
yeah dude fuck their snacks
Caminante Nocturno
Valve should try selling Half-Life Snacks. You know, little fruit snacks shaped like crowbars, headcrabs, and combine heads. They could even add Companion Cube-shaped ones in that pale pink color that was considered a delicacy by fruit snack standards.
spikestoyiu
That was the most embarrassing thing I've ever read.

Caminante Nocturno
Is this the first post of mine you've ever read on this site?

I interview Eric for Portal 2... he really is weirdly neurotic like that all the time, which is awesome when you're writing Portal 2.
poorwill
It's Erik with a k.

I have nothing to say about this snack bar video.

JimL2
Erik Wolpaw. Erik Johnson. || Eric Hope. Eric Kerchmer.
Samisyosam
Considering that their minds need to be fed sugar regularly and a slim physique is such a low priority for job performance, this is actually an ingenious solution to dealing with programmers.
deadpan
At least we know where Erik got the inspiration for GlaDOS. Damn you, passive-aggressive snack lady!
Tom Collins
I always thought that was the ghost of Codehappy.

duck&cover
Vhere is my sandvich?
pastorofmuppets
Erik made a scatter plot called "others' proximity to my desk vs. average # of stress-relieving trips to the snack room."

He then tried to show the snack lady that there was a positive correlation, but she wouldn't look at it.
Rape Van Winkle
Erik would have written "their proximity."

Rape Van Winkle
Without identifying them.

chumbucket
Their quarterly reports need to keep tabs on the status of the snack room as it appears to be directly connected to revenue and profit margins.
