How hard do you have to bite your tongue to stop yourself from saying "Water, you dumb twat!"?


You mean from the toilet?

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Coke is the devil but I still cant kick it. I have to have a couple a day or I get really biatchy.


*facepalm*  you sound like you'd genuinely benefit from four weeks of intensive caffeine detox via opiate training.. No, really, get a proper addiction going, then come and tell us all about how 'really biatchy' not getting a daily fix of caffeine actually makes you. That kind of perspective will do someone like you the world of good. yarly.

/Pfffffft.... 'addiction' *snerk* LMFAddictedAO.


Oh, you mean that coke...  carry on.

tlchwi02: on one hand, its silly of coke to try and claim there is no way to link her coke drinking with her death. On the other hand, its
idiotic to suggest that coca-cola the corporation has any culpability in this (even some sort of quasi moral responsibility)


If this ever got to trial, I think Coke's lawyers just wheel in 11 liters of Coke Classic for each member of the jury, and say "If any one of you can drink this much Coke in 12 hours without puking or passing out, we'll pay whatever settlement you want."

ruta: cfreak: Age 30 with EIGHT kids!?

I didn't know they had rednecks in NZ

Invercargill is regarded by many Kiwis as something akin to Florida. A "suthun mane" (southern man) is a guy in a wife-beater and galoshes drinking a Speights, possibly whilst driving a ute (small "utility" truck or car with a pickup bed). The Kiwi accent becomes unintelligible once you cross an invisible line somewhere around Dunedin.

There are some nice, intelligent, very generous folks down there but yeah, when you're at the ass-end of the earth, one might be more inclined to crank out 8 kids and drink 10 litres of coke a day.


To be fair, the blood of Numenor has diminished over the years.

No one has even mentioned that there are 400 calories in a liter of Coke.  That's 4000 calories daily.  Did she die of gravitational implosion?

farkingatwork: "Coca-Cola had argued that it could not be proved its product had contributed to Ms Harris' death. "

yeah, right. This is why you never buy or take anything Pepsi-co or Coca-Cola branded. The name by itself highlights how horrible their shiat is, combining Kola nuts and Cocaine in the first place. May as well buy asbestos and chug it, because it's not any healthier than drinking pop.

Coca-Cola no longer contains significant amounts of cocaine, and hasn't for some time.

Or i could just like... brush my teeth.

lol. Good luck. Sometimes I can't even give away free toothbrushes. You see, some people don't have enough time in the morning or at night to brush their teeth. I've heard every excuse.


you only take care of the teeth that you want to keep

Sure do.  New Zealand has 3 million people and 60 million sheep. Do the math!

 ; )

It's sort of playing Canada to Australia's impersonation of the USA. Peace, order and good government! Yaaaay! But it definitely has more than its share of sheep farmers despite mostly admirable economic and social welfare stats and the ability to punch above its weight.

How hard do you have to bite your tongue to stop yourself from saying "Water, you dumb twat!"?

I tell these people all the time to drink more water.  The response is always, "I don't like the taste of water".  It's a losing battle.  The excuse is that they have "soft teeth" and cavities are inevitable.

Water IS boring.  But boring is better than tooth ache pain.  Tooth ache pain is the worst.  I'll choose water over pain every time.  And it's amazing, one glass of water and I'm not even thirsty anymore.  Soda actually makes me more thirsty.


I drink diet Pepsi ... a lot.  I also love water, drink at least a Nalgene or two a day.  The problem is water doesn't have caffeine and I don't enjoy coffee or tea.  So, generally, I drink a Diet Pepsi in the morning (like many do coffee), and usually one in the afternoon, and maybe one after dinner depending on how late I need to work/be active.

But my question is, if Diet Pepsi is essentially just carbonated, aspartame water, with 0 calories, what's the harm?

No-Doz sucks, I have no idea why caffeine pills suck, but they do.

the fact that one or more of her children were born without enamel on their teeth, should have been treated by her, and by her family, as a warning,

How the hell does that happen. Most kids arn't born with teeth to begin with! And I guess these kids were born with teeth that didn't have enamel?!
