Do you decant your canned soda beverages before partaking?

I know someone who refuses to drink soda straight from the can.
And it's not for fear of the germs touching them lips, he believes soda benefits from "breathing".
I find this odd.
But then I find many things odd -- like people's aversion to salt and MSG (but that's a whole different thread entirely.)
So, I ask my fellow 'Hounds ... do you decant? If you don't decant, do you find it odd that someone would insist on decanting a canned soda?
I do both, and I like soda both ways...
I have to agree with your friend, though because they are two completely different experiences...soda definitely tastes different from a glass
Definitely need to have my soda in a glass. Not because it needs to breath, but because I just can't swallow the bubbles right from the can. I feel like I'm choking.
Once I got a soda from a machine and it had a bee in it that was still alive. Barely alive, but still wriggling a little bit. It was caramel colored.
I happen to like eating bees so I have continued to drink straight from the can.
