Nailed

My dad freaked me out.

He is an almost 80 year-old scientist. He told me this story:

"My colleagues and I one day put a nail in a glass of Coke. The next day, it was gone."

I will never eat nails with my Coke again.

I've also heard that it is used to clean tough stains off of cement rail and road tunnels

Coke does that kind of damage to a nail? Wow!!
No wonder my bladder goes nuts when I drink Diet Coke.

Coke will also clean corroded battery terminals.

I only ever drink coke when I've got a cold or something so that the acid can go to work on all the phlegm in my throat. I had some the other day for the first time in ages, and was reminded of how bad the taste of it truly was. The flavour of coke is a bit like making love in a canoe, it's f**king close to water!

I had a girlfriend who drank coke all the time, so I picked up the habit (briefly, for as long as we were together.)

I got cavities so fast I thought I was infested with tooth termites.

"A Coke and a smile!"

Don't lay it all on Coke, Pepsi or Shasta will do the same for ya!

Coke and Tabasco sauce. Best rust removers money can buy, bar none. I just KNOW there is a connection here to Training & Nutrition!
