Yes yes, true. And not a bad one from what I've heard.

I don't know whether this is Southern or not, but I've got somebody in my family who absolutely loves Mountain Dew. She will go 10 miles out of her way to get one.

That seems like more of an Appalachian/Upper South thing, most likely because that's where it originated. Not a fan of the regular MD, but I love the Code Red flavor.

I agree Coke has a 'bite' that Pepsi doesn't.

I'm going to be graduating from there pretty soon, hopefully this semester.

Kennesaw,to me has multiple identities. In immediate access of the universities, there are a few gas stations, a bunch of houses west of the campus, First United Lutheran Church west of the university, and some apartment complexes northeast of campus. Once you cross the Chastain Rd/Barrett Lakes intersection, you get on the east side of Chastain Rd(aka Town Park Lane). It is mainly strip malls, mostly with restaurants. Kennesaw is basically a land of strip malls when going from points Chastain southward. What is odd about this is that I suspect that everything from KSU to Barrett Parkway is basically unincorporated Cobb County with Kennesaw addresses.

Everything north and west of the university is a bit less developed. In fact, I've taken a few trips to downtown Kennesaw. It's actually part of the reason I would rather spent 45 minutes on CCT to visit Marietta Square than go to Downtown Kennesaw. This is why Kennesaw is developed kind of lopsided:

I'm not saying I don't like Town Center Mall. I do. However, Downtown Kennesaw could sure use some development.

I love Mountain Dew myself. Not a southern thing.

That's one of the biggest things I'm looking forward to when I move back to Atlanta: sweet tea, waffle house, chick-fil-a, zaxby's, and buckners off of 201 on 75 (if you've never been go immediately fyi).

That is one of the most frustrating things in the south. Everyone assumes you want that awful brown sugar water they call "sweet tea" and when I have iced tea in a restaurant (I get unsweet and add a sweetener) they tend to want to refill it with "sweet tea" and just assume you want that.

Of course outside the south, many places serve powdered or instant, or something made by Nestea, so I prefer the fresh brew, but the sugar overload is just too much. There must be literally half a day's worth of calories in one glass, so it's no wonder the obesity is that much worse in the south. If you drink two or three glasses of that tea with dinner, you've consumed close to a day's calories, even before you touch the fatty food that's on your plate.

There's no CFA in Seattle? That sucks.

Sweet tea is just kind of bland to me. I'll drink it when I'm thirsty, but it doesn't go well with food, IMO.
