So, when you go to McDonald's or whatever (any fast food restaurant), and you decide to get a fountain drink, do you mix them or do you just get one and fill the cup with it?
For example, I like mixing Root Beer and Lemonade, or Powerade and Sprite. Or sometimes I just like to fill up the cup with some Dr. Pepper.
What about you?

I like mixing different types of ginger ale, root beer with vanilla root beer, and cherry cola with regular. Other than that, I prefer to only mix drinks in the privacy of my own home, primarily alcoholic ones.

Yeah, that's the popular opinion Most people find it really weird, so I only really do it when I'm with my family. I love it though.

What is so weird about mixing 2 types to make it fit your taste?
If its just for fun or being silly, then -__- yeah a bit childish.

When I was a kid, we called this a "suicide," because of a persistent urban legend that this one kid - he goes to a different school, you wouldn't know him - mixed all the drinks in one cup and then? When he drank it? HE DIED.

So mixing all the drinks was the big idgaf move that kids used to look tough and cool at the Little League game when I was like, eight. Because YOU COULD DIE.

And now, in my forties, I watch people at Starbuck's try to look cool ordering their complex fucked-up weirdo drink off the "secret menu."

But it's only lame and stupid when you call attention to it. If you just quietly make your drink and drink it, that's fine, but when you announce what you're doing to the rest of the room it's... well, lame and stupid.

On a similar note, when I was in college, one of my friends was an organic chemistry major and he explained how if you mix Dr. Pepper with coffee it makes the caffeine work better because of the pepsin enzyme in the Dr. Pepper, but you have to ice the coffee first or the heat will destroy the effect. So we drank "Dr. Coffee" for a few months until he discovered an even BETTER synergy effect with coffee and grapefruit juice, and then we switched to "Florida Joe."

Today, thirty years later, there are actual medical warnings on several drugs that say it's dangerous to take them with grapefruit juice. I always wonder if Tyrell had something to do with that research.

That was the first thing that came to my mine.

Interesting fact, I've been mixing Coke & Orange soda since I was young, when I was in Germany I was delighted to learn that a lot of people liked it there too and actually have a name for it called Spezi and even have a specific soda with it premixed called Mezzo.

Honestly I didn't even know you could mix them lol.

But I don't, that sounds disgusting
