Halloween is Right around the corner.. .

Date: 3/1/2001 7:31:00 PM  From Authorid: 23037    it also kills rats , because they cant burp, been useing it in the barn for years , seriously. anyway people with good taste drink dr, pepper. whats the dirt on it?  
Date: 3/1/2001 7:31:00 PM  From Authorid: 25046    That does it...I'm switching to Pepsi. Or is that just as bad? LOL Rosepetal  
Date: 3/1/2001 7:31:00 PM  From Authorid: 27706    *note* Diet soda, once warm, will eat a hole in your brain. This is true. It has some acid that regular soda doesn't. It is scary to think what we will put in our bodies. -J.D.  
Date: 3/1/2001 7:33:00 PM  From Authorid: 27623    WOW, that's amazing. I've never heard any of those before, very interesting i must say! Thank you for sharing! It's kinda scary when you think about what's going into your body. Actually, it's been said that drinking soda helps cause oseteoperosis(sp?) in women. It makes sense, if it can dissolve a nail, it sure can dissolve or weaken your bones! Scary thought!  
Date: 3/1/2001 7:33:00 PM  From Authorid: 13138    Thanks for sharing. This was interesting. I enjoyed reading it. ~grace~  
Date: 3/1/2001 7:34:00 PM  From Authorid: 23956    I read that there is 12 tablespoons of sugar in each can of coke. Logan51
Date: 3/1/2001 7:34:00 PM  From Authorid: 19482    Does this count for Pepsi to??? I'm a Pepsi-RootBeer-MountianDew-aholic.  
Date: 3/1/2001 7:43:00 PM  From Authorid: 28944    Great reading! I have a another couple of points to make about coke. 1. Coca-Cola turned santa Red... he was originally green. 2. It's the number 1 supermarket purchase after milk and bread! all those rotting people!  
Date: 3/1/2001 7:45:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 28899    OMG, I just posted this 5 minuates ago! Anyway, I'd imagine it goes for pepsi, but I think the pepsi co is heavy on sugar replacements which have been recently suspected of contriuting to stroke and blood clots.
With that, I'll never stop drinking coke.
Date: 3/1/2001 7:45:00 PM  From Authorid: 15033    Wow! How does it keep from eating their containers ? Love,  
Date: 3/1/2001 7:47:00 PM  From Authorid: 3538    Oh no,I have been drinking coke for years,but,recently I have been drinking Big Red.I wonder what Big Red can do?Kind of scary to think that Coke can do all of these things.  
Date: 3/1/2001 7:53:00 PM  From Authorid: 21137    My cousine and I both drink crazy amounts of coke each day...oopsi!  
Date: 3/1/2001 8:00:00 PM  From Authorid: 18103    I heard that Coke was green in the early days. This stuff right here in this post is enough to make me not want to touch the stuff again. I do drink Pepsi all the time, I sure hope it's safer.GRAYWOLF65  
Date: 3/1/2001 8:12:00 PM  From Authorid: 14135    well, i still like coca-cola even if it will rot my stomach, cause its hasnt hurt me yet, but until then like the pepsi girl says, pass me a coke please!! hehe
Date: 3/1/2001 8:12:00 PM  From Authorid: 28571    Hey, I actually just got back from a science fair my school was having and my friend did her project on cokeacola and rumors like these ones. Most of them don't actually work, acordding to her experiments. But before, coke contained alot of acid phos...something and that enabled it to do all those things, but these days, they don't put as much of that stuff anymore because they found out it was harmful to our heath or something. So I don't think you have anything to worry about. I drink Pepsi anyways!
Date: 3/1/2001 8:27:00 PM  From Authorid: 19173    Well its a good thing I drink Pepsi LisaNY1  
Date: 3/1/2001 8:39:00 PM  From Authorid: 11348    eeek!! No more coke for me.....  
Date: 3/1/2001 8:48:00 PM  From Authorid: 21673    well how many litres do you drink in one sitting?
Wonder what it was like to drink when cocaine WAS in the receipe. Do you know what year it was removed?
Date: 3/1/2001 8:55:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 28899    I know it was out by 1960. But before that, I can't pin it without pooling my resourses. So if anyone else reading this knows, please post it!  
Date: 3/1/2001 8:58:00 PM    Long before 1960 -- I think in 1906 due to a federal food/drug act.
Date: 3/1/2001 9:41:00 PM  From Authorid: 12709    Oh my....LOL, uhmmmmmmmmm.... can't beat the real thing? hehe =D  
Date: 3/2/2001 8:25:00 AM  From Authorid: 16612    I like Coca-Cola I think it's great. I also think they still put cocaine in it these days.I posted a story on it.-TessekTheQuarren  
Date: 3/2/2001 8:43:00 AM  From Authorid: 10245    We watched a documentary not too long ago about coke...For some reason the 1920's is sticking in my mind as to when they removed the cocaine...but I won't swear to it!  
Date: 3/2/2001 8:56:00 AM  From Authorid: 27046    I am a mountain dew addict, I drink at least a 2 liter if not more a day, the corner store knows not to run out of it I am there everyday for my fix! Like right now its noon I haven't had any yet, I am waiting for a friend to bring me some when she gets here and I can feel the onset of the migraine, if she doesn't get here soon it will be full blown within the hour and I am done for the day, nothing will touch it and I have to sleep it off for hours.....been sitting here chanting "PLEASE HURRY"......LOL.........Azairyia  
Date: 3/2/2001 9:40:00 AM  From Authorid: 26381    I drink alot of diet cokes. Thanks for letting me know this. Ruth  
Date: 3/2/2001 11:53:00 AM  From Authorid: 28312    I didn't know all them facts.I only heard the toilet bowl one.Thank you I will never drink coke again..I drink Dr.Pepper myself.I wonder if anything is wrong with it..It is a coke product..Thank you for the post..
Date: 4/17/2001 8:31:00 PM    This is not true, well the one about the nail is not, I am doing an experiment for school on all of these. I had a nail in Coke for 2 weeks and nothing happened
