VO and water... atleast there is no harmful coke in the mix. Dad drinks Jack and coke. The Jack brings down the concentration of the coke I guess it is healthier. My sister was told that after her kidney surgery she was not to drink coke for the rest of her life.

I'm guessing that stomach acid is slightly worse than Coke.

Coke is also good for cleaning the brake dust off your wheels.
My truck has exhaust that exits in front of the right rear wheel. I used to always have trouble keeping that wheel clean, Coke took care of that too. Maybe it'll work on removing the exhaust residue from fiberglass hulls.

The wife has a co-worker that is a heavy beer drinker. His skin is all dried and cracked. He even looks older than he really is. She found out that he doesn't drink any water only beer and coffee. The people at work got him to start drinking water after they told him he may be dehydrated. Sure enough, after a week of drinking water at night his skin started to clear up.

Used coke to free a frozen (rusted) set of piston/rings
on an old Pan-Head Harley engine about 20 years ago.
Worked like a charm

Beware of water.

Prolonged contact with water can dissolve your insides. Friction from water has been known to carve canyons into planets, consume acres of water-frontage, rust solid metal, and generally cause things to become "gooshy".

The Chinese purportedly used dripping water to drill holes in their prisoners' foreheads and into their brains.

Just think, people, about what this fluid can do to your delicate digestive system.

Don't be fooled by ad slogans touting the health benefits of water. Natural? Sure it is. So what? Lots of things are natural. Lava is natural. Won't catch me with a mug full of it, though.


Beer may be the only safe drink left...
