    Yet a little more triva for my brothers and sisters here at AR

    I already posted this in the reciepe section as I have been known for someing up with some pretty interesting stuff, but I thought that I would post it here as well.

    Water or Coke

    We all know that water is important but I’ve never
    seen it written down like this before.


    1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
    > (Likely applies to half of the world population)

    2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so
    weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.

    3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s
    metabolism as much as 3%.

    4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger
    pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a
    U-Washington study.

    5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

    6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of
    water a day could significantly ease back and joint
    pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

    7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy
    short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and
    difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a
    printed page.

    8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the
    risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the
    risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less
    likely to develop bladder cancer.

    Are you drinking the amount of water you should every


    1. In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol
    carries two gallons of Coke in the truck to remove
    blood from the highway after a car accident.

    2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of coke and it
    will be gone in two days.

    3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the
    toilet bowl and let the “real thing” sit for one hour,
    then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes
    stains from vitreous china.

    4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub
    the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap
    aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.

    5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour
    a can of Coca- Cola over the terminals to bubble away
    the corrosion.

    6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked in
    Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.

    7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into
    the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and
    bake. Thirty minutes before the ham is finished,
    remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with
    the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.

    8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of coke
    into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run
    through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help
    loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze
    from your windshield.

    For Your Info

    1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid.
    Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4
    days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones
    and is a major contributor to the rising increase in

    2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the
    commercial truck must use the Hazardous material place
    cards reserved for Highly corrosive materials.

    3. The distributors of coke have been using it to
    clean the engines of their trucks for about 20 years!

    Now the question is, would you like a glass of water
    or coke?
