POLL: Does shaking soda...?

make it more stale? I always thought it made it less stale, but the more I shake it the sooner it's flat. Before it would last a week, [a 2 liter bottle] and now it lasts 2 days and it's already stale.

Thanks! :]

Update:

My soda was "stale" I thought, so I shook it up & it got EVERYWHERE!! >:( Grrrr... But okay, guess I'll stop shaking it.

    Shaking removes the carbonation (CO2 bubbles), which makes it go flat.

    Shaking it releases the carbon dioxide in the solution (carbonic acid) making bubbles. This causes it to go "flat," tasting stale.

    Yeah, it takes the carbonation out of the soda making it flat.

    it decreases the fizz quality (Co2) causing the syrup to separate hence sweet flat stale soda, yum.

    Quit shaking it you maniac. ;).

    Shake it up....

    it releases the carbonation as far as I know...making it flat.

    yes because it causes all the carbonation to escape from the soda.
