"The Nanny City legislates your bladder."
As of March 2013, any sugar-containing drink sold outside a supermarket in New York City may contain no more than sixteen ounces of fluid. This includes all restaurants, dance and music clubs, street carts, food trucks, sporting facilities, cafeterias, entertainment venues, strip clubs, movie theaters, street fairs, vending machines, and may stretch to include convenience stores. Frankly, I'm not sure the supermarkets are off the hook.

Can we get rid of this ass now?

1. "RE: The Nanny City legislates your bladder."
Question. I regularly drink Bolthouse Farms' smoothie drinks (and yes, they can be bought outside of a supermarket. The large ones are 32 ounces. It's got 100% natural flavours, but fruit have natural sugars in them (28g worth) ... so will I be arrested for having these things when I visit NYC next year?

Bloomberg will have to pry these things out of my cold, dead hands.

Details are still coming across, but this sounds like anything with sugar is on the list -- which means smoothies and fruit juices get it too.

The mayor will be more than happy to have you shot down in the street as an example to others and thanks you for your having volunteered. Can you make an appointment for your death? He wants to have the press on standby.

...yeah, kind of knew that was coming when I wrote the post and went with it anyway...

Y'know what I'm waiting for? Fine numbers. The amount which the police will charge anyone they find drinking from a larger bottle outside their home. With Bloomberg, this is ultimately about one thing: how much extra money the city can extort from residents and visitors. He cares about your health only so long as you pay him to have it.

*checks* Goodbye, slushies. I'm pretty sure this just legislated ice cream sodas out of existence too. That's right: Bloomberg just banned the egg cream. Well, there goes the Brooklyn vote. All of it.

I can't decide if this requires the same number of people buying three times the drinks or three times the people buying the same amount of drink.

Either way, sunrise is gonna svck.

14. "RE: Prediction"
Kind of wondering where Wegman's and the other supermarkets with built-in eateries fall into this. In Wegman's case, some of the serving stations have fountain sodas -- but there's also a big chilled drink section off to one side where you can pick your own bottle. Legal or not?

...oh, like it matters as long as the city gets to collect the fines...

LAST EDITED ON 09-19-12 AT 10:38 AM (EST)

we'll have this scene:

Knock on the door, little panel opens up
Guy on the outside says "Louie sent me"
Guy on the inside says "You got the cash?"
"Yep"
Door opens, outside guy slinks in
On the inside, a fat envelope changes hands, quickly vanishing into an overcoat pocket
Inside guy hands over a large bottle with brown liquid on the inside. The gentle clink of ice is heard.
Outside guy says "You sure this is the real stuff?", then takes a quick sip.
Inside guy says "Of course, it came in from Jersey this morning. Fresh off the boat. Genuine Doc P"
Outside guy says "When are you getting some C. I really need some C"
Inside guy says "Soon, but the Man is getting tough on my supplier. The price is going up. 15 a liter."
"Whatever it takes -- I really need that C"
Door opens and outside guy disappears into the night...

16. "Next target: hospital vending machines."
He intends to legislate all candy-bearing ones (and possibly soda) out of existence for being unhealthy. A couple of facilities have already fearfully moved into pre-compliance. Because, you know, when you're an intern working a forty-hour shift, there's no way you'll ever need a sugar boost. Plus all those diabetics in desperate need of the stuff? Can just die. Because he's Mayor Michael "I Can Afford More Lawyers Than You" Bloomberg and dead people don't matter, as long as the city seizes their assets.

I would not be surprised by an attempt to ban Halloween.

17. "Enaction bump."
This kicks in a few days from now, and the Post ran a long article detailing some of the rules sent out to all the parties who will now Comply Or Else. Three which stood out:

A. This does in fact cover mixed drinks. So pitchers and carafes of cocktails which would have soda as an essential ingredient are banned.

B. Similarly, you can't sell a pitcher of soda, period. No splitting up contents among ten people at a table -- everyone must have, order, and pay for a separate glass of sixteen ounces of less.

C. The delivery places are going to bleed. Let's say you have a few friends over and you decide to order a pizza and get a two-liter bottle of Coke to go with it. You can't. It's now illegal. If you want that amount of soda, you are now ordering a pizza and six cans. Typically, this will be at least $1.50 more, and more frequently $2.50 on up. Are you going to spend that much extra? And I'm talking about one pizza with now-banned bottle. Guess what this does to your average full-scale pizza party.

Sentients and gentlebeings, the next candidate for President of the United States.

19. "The fine."
Two hundred dollars per violation. Plus deposit. (Yes, this is going to increase the amount of plastic which has to be recycled.) Oddly, the ban doesn't apply to diet sodas. Cane sugar and corn syrup editions are both in trouble. No word on sports drinks, but virtually all of them have some sugar and are large bottles, so dehydrate away, marathoners: the city will bill your families for the tow-away costs on your corpse.

Gawds, I hate this man.

21. "Temporarily overturned."
The judge ruled it as "arbitrary and capricious", noting that the law doesn't set universal limits and is in fact an attempt to restrict a perfectly legal substance. So naturally, Mayor Michael "I will never listen to anyone who has less money than me!" Bloomberg has sworn to fight this through the last appeal court because, in his words, people are dying every day. That's right: they're dying because they got too much of a freely-available uncontrolled substance which is known to be hazardous in large quantities and as soon as he gets the paperwork filled out, that oxygen is going to be banned.

Just wait until he gets to lard-filled fats -- oh, wait: he already did...

Meanwhile, money has already been lost. All those large bottles thrown out? Gone. Big containers disposed of? No refunds. 16oz glasses purchased in bulk? Really no refunds. And cares not the jerk in charge, for he got the sales tax out of it and any money you still have will eventually belong to him anyway.

For my part, I'm waiting for King Oblivious to figure out that he can dump the 'arbitrary' tag by extending the ban to supermarkets and home brewing.

22. "RE: Temporarily overturned."
In spite of his quixotic (in the sense of being a 'dam silly' idea) determination to fight the ban, it's really hard to see that he has any chance of prevailing. Are there enough state judges in his pocket to rule in his favor? Even if so, there would be majority against him (maybe he'd get Ginsberg's vote in the SCOTUS.

Hopefully Bloomberg is term limited.

He was. Then he passed a law that allowed him to ignore the limit, which gave him the term he's currently on.

I'm not joking.

He promised this term would be the last.

I haven't met many people who believe him.
