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.
That's funny, thanks for sharing your story, (Ha-Ha-Ha-ha.)
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!!!
Sleep is worth the effort.

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.
If we could only get politicians to drink it.

I wonder, is it any good at killing weeds?
Two things Coke does NOT do because I tried them are: remove oil stains from the garage floor - remove grease stains from fabric.
