Coke Zero Is Probably Just Some Tasty Poison

So much for sleeping in and, you know, not working. Please accept my apologies.

Seriously, breaking into an animal shelter to steal? Really? [WAVE3]

Did you know? Yes, you did. Thieves use Facebook to determine when to steal your crap. [WHAS11]

Don’t forget that you can loan your kids to the Science Center December 27 through 30. This is a big deal for people who need to get stuff done, probably. [Click the Clicky]

    Coke Zero is the nectar of the gods and every restaurant in town should serve it. The end.

    If my Pur pitcher doesn’t filter the chromium out, then I had some with my Coke Zero and Makers 46 last night in the form of a big ice ball.

    I guess I’m going to be “that guy” and point out to our friends at WDRB that the gas station explosion was NOT in PRP, unless the Ridgers annexed all of Shively and Park Hill.

    PRP = the Entire Southend of Louisville, just ask one of the residents

    Cola is probably the unhealthiest soft drink. The phosphoric acid isn’t good stuff for the stomach and that’s just for starters.

    Cola has a cleansing effect… it takes the rust off of car bumpers so its got to be good for your innards

    So you’re saying the Coke Zero could be killing the chromium or whatever it is Michelle and I are consuming when we partake in bourbon and fancy ice?

    That’s good news.

    Ironically, the low pH formed by Steve’s phosphoric acid would actually help reduce the hexavalent chromium to the more non-toxic trivalent form.

    So Jake, you’re actually correct in your contention that the Coke Zero is actually protecting you from your ice cubes. Actually, your stomach acid does a much better job since water cannot be absorbed into your body until it passes out of your stomach. So skip the Prilosec and Tums if you’re worried about Hexavalent Chromium.
