Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I've gotten them at 7-11, Walmart, Walgreens, Home Depot, Costco, tacquerias.

Same here. But I have no intention of trying full sugar coke. You should try cane sugar dr pepper if you want to not barf.

When I was a youngun (I guess high schoolish) I went to the coke museum in ATL, and at the end they have a section where you can try all of the variations of sodas coke has all over the world. I tried them all one after another. OMG, intl soda taste is terrible (looking at you, saudi arabia). I actually did puke while still in the museum. I have not wanted to go near a coke product since.

They had a Bitter Aperitif(non-alcoholic) on tap when I went. Interesting flavour for sure. Kinda like orange and grapefruit rinds.

All you Coke haters must be overlooking the obvious performance benefits.

My still-addicted sisters used to bring big 2 liter bottles of that stuff when they came to visit. Dusty, unopened ones would still be here when they returned.

I suppose others already noticed but it looks like the @/mention function is no longer a disappearing act.

The quote notification feature almost works now. It takes you to a previously non-existent "quoted posts" page, but oddly still has nothing to display.
