There is exactly a 0.0% probability that Pepsi is causing flu symptoms, you're just seeing a correlation where there is none. Since you don't know what exactly is causing those symptoms you are looking for any explanation you can find to explain it. If you drink Pepsi rarely and it happens to loosely correlate with experiencing flu symptoms, you begin to falsely associate the two. However, you are starting with the conclusion that "Pepsi is causing this", and starting with a conclusion makes it easy to see 'evidence' for it in hindsight, however it leave you vulnerable to conformation bias and selective memory.
I don't mean any of that as an insult to your intelligence, this kind of reasoning is deeply rooted in human psychology. We think like that because it's served our just fine for collective survival. Evolution just brings you to 'good enough', it doesn't guarantee optimal performance. This flawed way of thinking is why ineffective folk-medicine and unsupported superstitions reigned supreme in human society for centuries.
Yeah, I've been watching way too much Bill Nye, Michio Kaku, and Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Getting kicked out of the mall for running up the down escalator...doh.

This anti-GMO fear mongering propaganda is getting way out of hand. Everyone and their mother is slapping non-GMO labels on anything they can get away with. I've actually seen such outlandish nonsense as SALT being labeled non-GMO. I've gotta admit, GM salt would be the one GMO I'd genuinely be afraid of...seeing as salt is an inorganic compound that doesn't even have DNA that can be modified.
Trash like that should be regulated as deceptive advertising, but at least it helps informed people like me know which anti-science companies I shouldn't support.
Non-GMO = Non-sale. Take your pseudoscience some place else.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to enjoy my delicious dinner of AquAdvantage salmon with a side of Golden Rice and Roundup Ready corn, an Arctic Apple for dessert, and a nice tall glass of GM rainbow papaya juice.

As a switch owner, I can say that Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an excellent game, especially if you like open world stuff. It does have it's flaws, much like Ocarina of Time did, but it's clear that Nintendo put a lot of effort into it to make it as good as they could. I've been playing it since basically launch and am still discovering little things that I didn't know about. I mean, it's obvious that you can run around and swing a sword, not so obvious that...some npc's will comment on the fact that you've taken off all of your armor and are running around in just your underwear.
