    Drink water, not coke.

    I don't touch coke but I found this very interesting.


    Water or Coke?


    Could not believe this..... Very interesting



    WATER

    #1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
    (Likely applies to half the world population.)


    #2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak
    that it is mistaken for hunger.


    #3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%.


    #4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs
    for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of
    Washington study.


    #5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.


    #6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of
    water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain
    for up to 80% of sufferers.


    #7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term
    memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on
    the computer screen or on a printed page.


    #8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of
    colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast
    cancer by 79%., and one is 50% less likely to develop
    bladder cancer. Are you drinking the amount of water
    you should drink every day?



    COKE

    #1. In many states the highway patrol carries
    two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from
    the highway after a car accident.


    #2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke
    and it will be gone in two days.

    #3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the
    toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one hour,
    then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes
    stains from vitreous china.


    #4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers:
    Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds
    Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.


    #5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour
    a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble
    away the corrosion.


    #6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola
    to the rusted bolt for several minutes.


    #7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into
    the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake.
    Thirty minutes before ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix
    with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.


    #8... To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke
    into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run
    through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen
    grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your
    windshield.


    FOR YOUR INFORMATION:

    #1. the active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid.
    It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric
    acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major
    contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis.

    #2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup! (the concentrate) the
    commercial trucks must use a hazardous Material place
    cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.

    #3. The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean
    engines of the trucks for about 20 years!


    Now the question is, would you like a glass of water or Coke?

    Sure can screw up car floor boards.

    Coke is as strong as some of the chemicals they use at my husbands work to take rust off of WWII aircraft. You know if it can take rust off of an airplane that has been buried since the WWII war, than ya kinda get an idea what it can do to us.

    Mythbusters tried almost everything that you mentioned with coke. and found them to be false



    #1. In many states the highway patrol carries
    two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from
    the highway after a car accident.
    I dont know why they would do that, at most car accidents big fire trucks come and they have hoses with alot of water.


    #2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke
    and it will be gone in two days.
    no it wont, it will make one hell of a marinade

    #3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the
    toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one hour,
    then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes
    stains from vitreous china.
    sorry the coke isnt that good

    #4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers:
    Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds
    Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.
    dont work that good, but be prepared to use alot of elbow grease
    #5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour
    a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion
    .
    dont work but leaves sticky residue

    #6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
    false.. use WD40 it works alot better


    #7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into
    the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake.
    Thirty minutes before ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.
    True you can also use maple syrup

    #8... To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke
    into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run
    through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen
    grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your
    windshield.
    False it didnt and clean road haze from your windshield... you would then have to clean all the sugar residue off your windshield after you were done

    Slightly off topic, but nothing can compare to what a bottle of Jack Daniels can do to the finish on a coffee table...YIKES
    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.

    that it is mistaken for hunger.


    I think y'all have tackled the Coke issue enough. I think most of that water stuff is BS. I ride a bike for a living and if I drink too much water, I have to pee ever 30 minutes. And yes, you can drink too much water a die (it's rare, but it happens- happed to a Police cadet not too long ago, IIRC).

    Thirst is often mistaken for hunger- it has nothing to do with a "faulty thirst mechanism". That's why when you are stranded (or on a diet) and get hungry, it's important to drink a lot of water to maker sure your body isn't giving off false hunger signals.

    Yeah, the sugar versions sound like a mess. I ran out of windshield wash one bug splattering summer night though and the only thing I had with me was Diet Pepsi. Worked at least as good as regular window wash (and better than straight water).

    If nothing else, it certainly makes a sticky-icky mess when you accidentally drop your glass against the corner of your desk causing it to break and go everywhere like I just did!

    I don't drink pop (coke, soda, whatever part of the country you're int) never have, probably never will.
    There’s a promise I need you to make
    While I’m gone you take care of the love
    And I’ll deal with the hate.

    Don’t worry about me; I’ll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight

    I wish I can be as strong as you. If it wasn't for soda I'd prolly be at 10% body fat instead of 25%. I try and stick with clear soda tho. The dye in the non clear soda (pepsi,orange, rootbeer, coke...etc) can fuck up your system.
