  • Friday's interesting fact....

    Okay...I grossed everybody out yesterday so today I'll be nice.




    When it originally appeared in 1886 - Coca Cola was billed as an "Esteemed Brain Tonic and Intellectual Beverage".




    Intellectual???
    The average woman would rather have beauty than brains, because the average man can see better than he can think.

      Don't I remember (and that's scary, getting me to remember) that when Coca-Cola was first brought out it had some/traces of "coke" in it? That's what energized people!

          According to Coke history

          Frank Robinson, coined the name "Coca-Cola", because it included the stimulant cocaine and was flavored using kola nuts, a source of caffeine. Pemberton's formula called for five ounces (140 grams) of coca leaf per gallon of syrup.

                What still freaks me out, is that in articles about household tips, it was said to pour a can a coke in your toilet bowl to help disolve the ring around the bowl, and they say it works... Just think what it does to your stomach !
