new version of 'excitement'
Pretty sad when the 'excitement' in one's life amounts to a trip to Woodman's (a local warehouse type grocery store.)
But.......as we were checking out Sunday, I had purchased a 6-pak of Coke to have
on hand when company comes to visit. The clerk ran it over the scanner and slid it down
the counter - where it lightly touched something else and one can of Coke literally
"exploded" and went all over the counter, register, floor both behind and in front of register,
and all over the clerk standing next to the place where we were checking out. Talk about
surprised!! Clerk had to call for a 'mop-n-bucket' over the intercom. The floor was a mess and
all I could think is..............................."glad that happened here and not in the car or at home". Thankfully no one was injured and one of the nearby grocery packers went to get us a new 6-pak. My goodness, all that excitement Laugh-a-lot

RE: new version of 'excitement'
That would be enough to convince me not to drink coke! And below is what you will have to contend with when you serve your friends a coke!

In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100 per cent of your recommended daily intake.) You don't immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavour allowing you to keep it down.

20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There's plenty of that at this particular moment).

40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.

45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centres of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.

>60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism.
This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

>60 Minutes: The caffeine's diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.)
It is now assured that you'll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.

>60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down you'll start to have a sugar crash.

You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You've also now, literally, urinated the water that was in the Coke.

But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.

RE: new version of 'excitement'
Well, sometimes we need a little excitement in our lives.

I remember a story about when my parents were first married, and they were so poor that their "excitement" was to go to the laundromat each week and sit and watch their clothes tumble through the glass in the washing machine and dryer. Kind of like a poor man's television I guess.

I personally think that we have far too many expensive gadgets and flashing trinkets and toys to "entertain" us these days. In this fast-paced, hectic and messed up world, we need to sit and relax, enjoy nature as much as possible and step away from our electronic madness.

IMHO, watching coke cans explode is a much more healthy 'excitement' than sitting for hours at a computer monitor or smart phone, playing games, texting or going to some amusement park. Now you have a story to tell.... what kind of boring story would you have to tell if you played a video game, texted for hours on end on a smartphone or some such thing?

Nope, give me an exploding coke can story any day.

RE: new version of 'excitement'
One of the aspects of the "exploding coke can" story is that a little boy (maybe 6 or 7 yrs old) in the line next to ours might have said a 'bad word' because I looked over that way and his Mother had her hand over his mouth but the child was pointing towards the coke can mess. Sorry, but I couldn't help but laugh. If that had been my oldest son I know what he would have said .......and I would probably have covered his mouth too.

I'll bet the mother was covering the little boy's mouth because she didn't want him to imbibe any of that horribly toxic coca-cola!!! Wink

Sleep is worth the effort.

RE: new version of 'excitement'
This convinces me that coke explodes when it lightly bumps another object (meant for humor) is enough to convince me that I don't want to put it in my body!

To prove Coke does not belong in the human body, here are 20 practical ways you can use Coke as a domestic cleaner:

Remove grease stains from clothing and fabric.
Remove rust: methods include using fabric, a sponge, or even aluminum foil dipped in Coke. Also loosens rusty bolts.
Remove blood stains from clothing and fabric.
Clean oil stains from a garage floor: let the stain soak, hose off.
Kill slugs and snails; the acids kills them.
Clean burnt pans: let the pan soak in the Coke, then rinse.
Descale a kettle (same method as with burnt pans).
Clean car battery terminals by pouring a small amount of Coke over each one.
Clean your engine; Coke distributors have been using this technique for decades.
Make pennies shine: soaking old pennies in Coke will remove the tarnish.
Clean tile grout: pour onto kitchen floor, leave for a few minutes, wipe up.
Dissolve a tooth; use a sealed container… it takes a while, but it does work.
Remove gum from hair: dip into a small bowl of Coke, leave a few minutes. Gum will wipe off.
Remove stains from vitreous china.
Got a dirty pool? Adding two 2-liter bottles of Coke clears up rust.
You can remove (or fade) dye from hair by pouring diet Coke over it.
Remove marker stains from carpet. Applying Coke, scrubbing, and then cleaning with soapy water will remove marker stains.
Clean your toilet: pour around bowl, leave for a while, flush clean.
Coke and aluminum foil will bring Chrome to a high shine.
Strip paint off metal furniture. Soak a towel in Coke and lay it on the paint surface.

Two things Coke does NOT do because I tried them are: remove oil stains from the garage floor - remove grease stains from fabric.
