1. In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in
the trunk 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 crumpled-up
piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminium 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 aluminium 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.
The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve
a nail in about 4 days.
To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must use the Hazardous
material place cards reserved for Highly corrosive materials.
The distributors of coke have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks
for about 20 years!
Still Want To Drink Up?????????
This is a true story from the WordPerfect Help line which was transcribed from a
recording monitoring the customer care department. Needless to say, the Help Desk
employee was fired. However, he is currently suing the WordPerfect organisation for
"Termination without Cause." This is the actual dialogue of a former WordPerfect
Customer Support employee (now I know why they record these conversations).
"Rich Hall computer assistance; may I help you?" "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with
WordPerfect." "What sort of trouble?" "Well, I was just typing along, and all of
a sudden the words went away." "Went away?" "They disappeared." "Hmmm. So what does
your screen look like now?" "Nothing." "Nothing?" "It's a blank; it won' t accept
anything when I type." "Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?" "How do
I tell?" "Can you see the C: prompt on the screen?" "What's a sea-prompt?" "Never
mind, can you move your cursor around the screen?" "There isn't any cursor: I told
you, it won't accept anything I type." "Does your monitor have a power indicator?"
"What's a monitor?" "It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does
it have a little light that tells you when it's on?" "I don't know." "Well, then
look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes into it. Can you
see that?" "Yes, I think so." "Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if
it's plugged into the wall." "Yes, it is." "When you were behind the monitor, did
you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?"
"No." "Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable."
"Okay, here it is." "Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into
the back of your computer." "I can't reach." "Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?"
"No." "Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?"
"Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle it's because it's dark." "Dark?"
"Yes, the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from the window."
"Well, turn on the office light then." "I can't." "No? Why not?" "Because there's
a power failure." "A power.......a power failure?.... Aha, Okay, we've got it licked
now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your computer came
in?" "Well, yes, I keep them in the closet.
"Good. Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you
got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it from." "Really? Is it that bad?"
"Yes, I'm afraid it is." "Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?"
"Tell them you're too f***ing stupid to own a computer.

The following is an actual question given on University of Liverpool Physics finals.
The answer by one student was so "profound" that the Professor shared it with colleagues
via the Internet, which is why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.
Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?
of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law that gas cools when
it expands and heats when it is compressed or some variant.
One student, however,
wrote the following:
First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time.
So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which
they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell,
it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.
As for how many souls are entering
Hell, let's look at the different Religions that exist in the world today. Most of
these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go
Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong
to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell.
With birth and
death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.
Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell. Because Boyle's Law states
that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay constant, the volume
of Hell must expand proportionately as souls are added.
This gives two possibilities:
If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then
the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.
If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the
temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.
So which is it?
If we accept
the postulate given to me by Sandra during my freshman year that "it will be a cold
day in Hell before I sleep with you," and take into account the fact that I slept
with her last night, then number 2 must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is
endothermic and has already frozen over.
The corollary of this theory is that since
Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is extinct...leaving
only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being that explains why, last
night, Sandra kept shouting "Oh my God."
THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A".

A bloke goes on holiday to a small seaside resort in the Med. First thing he does
is puts on the summer shorts and heads for the beach. Unfortunately he falls asleep
in the hot sun, and when he wakes up he's burnt to a crisp.
He painfully makes his way to the village chemist and asks the pharmacist for his
strongest remedy for sunburn. The pharmacist says "I can only give you aspirin and
antiseptic cream, I don't have anything else in stock". The man says "have you not
got anything stronger?" "Sorry sir, I am only a small village chemist. But I can
give you this to help you sleep" and he gives the man a packet of tablets. The man
says "is it Nytol, will it make me sleepy?
Pharmacist says "no it's Viagra, it'll keep the duvet cover off your legs"
A man starts his new job at the zoo and is given three tasks. The first is to clear
the exotic fish pool of weeds. He starts on this when suddenly a huge fish leaps
out and bites him. He is not going to let a fish have a go so he beats the offending
fish to death with a spade. Realising that his boss is not going to be best pleased,
he tries to find a way to hide the dead fish. He hits on the brilliant idea of giving
the fish to the lions, as lions will eat anything. So he throws the fish into the
He then moves on to his second job, which is to clear out the monkey house. He goes
in and a couple of chimps start throwing coconuts at him. Unamused he swipes at the
chimps with his spade, killing them instantly. He's really worried now, so what does
he do? He feeds the chimps to the lions, because lions eat anything. He hurls them
into the lion's cage.
Anyway, he moves on to his last job, which is to collect honey from South American
bees. He starts on this and quickly gets attacked by the bees. Alarmed, he grabs
his spade and smashes the bees as hard as he can, squashing them to death. By this
point he is not too worried about the death of bees, as he knows what to do by now.
He throws them into the lion's cage, because lions eat anything.
Later that day a new lion arrives at the zoo. It wanders up to another lion and says,
"What's the food like in here?" The other lion says "Absolutely brilliant! Today
we had Fish, Chimps and Mushy Bees"
An aircraft is about to crash. There are five passengers on board, but unfortunately
only four parachutes.
The first passenger says, "I'm Jonny Wilkinson, the best flyhalf in Britain. The
English need me, it would be unfair to them if I died". So he takes the first parachute
and jumps. The second passenger, Graca Machel, says, "I am the wife of the former
President of South Africa. I am also the most dedicated woman in the world." She
takes one of the parachutes and jumps. The third passenger, George W. Bush, says,
" I am the President of the United States of America. I have a huge responsibility
in world politics. And apart from that, I am the most intelligent President in the
history of the country and I have a responsibility to my people not to die." So he
takes a parachute and jumps. The fourth passenger, the Pope, says to the fifth passenger,
a ten year old schoolboy, "I am already old. I have already lived my life, as a good
person and a priest I will give you the last parachute".
The boy replies "No problem your Popeness, there is also a parachute for you. America's
most intelligent President has taken my schoolbag..."
The following apparently comes from a Catholic elementary school. It could happen...
Kids were asked questions about the Old and New Testaments. The following statements
about the Bible were written by children. They have not been retouched or corrected
(i.e., incorrect spelling has been left in.)....
- In the first book of the bible, Guinessis, God got tired of creating the world,
so he took the Sabbath off. Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. Noah's
wife was called Joan of Ark. Noah built an ark, which animals come on to in pears.
- Lot's wife was a pillar of salt by day, but a ball of fire by night.
- The Jews were a proud people and throughout history they had trouble with the unsympathetic
- Samson was a strongman who let himself be led astray by a Jezebel like Delilah.
- Samson slayed the Philistines with the axe of the Apostles.
- Moses led the Hebrews to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread which is
bread without any ingredients.
- The Egyptians were all drowned in the dessert. Afterwards, Moses went up on Mount
cyanide to get the ten ammendments.
- The first commandment was when Eve told Adam to eat the apple.
- The seventh commandment is thou shalt not admit adultery.
- The greatest miracle in the Bible is when Joshua told his son to stand still and
he obeyed him.
- David was a Hebrew king skilled at playing the liar. He fought with the Finklesteins,
a race of people who lived in Biblical times.
- Solomon, one of David's sons, had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.
- When Mary heard that she was the mother of Jesus, she sand the Magna Carta.
- Jesus was born because Mary had a immaculate contraption.
- St. John the blacksmith dumped water on his head.
- Jesus enunciated the Golden Rule, which says to do one to others before they do
one to you. He also explained, "a man doth not live by sweat alone.
- It was a miracle when Jesus rose from the dead and managed to get the tombstone
off the entrance.
- The people who followed the lord were called the 12 decibels.
- The epistles were the wives of the apostles.
- One of the opossums was St. Matthew who was also a taximan.
- St. Paul cavorted to Christianity. He preached holy acrimony, which in another
name for marriage.
- Christians have only one spouse. This is called monotony.
This announcement followed Ferrari's decision to take advantage of the British government's
'Work for your Dole' scheme and employ some Liverpudlian youngsters.
The decision to hire them was brought about by a recent documentary on how unemployed
youths from Toxteth were able to remove a set of wheels in less than 6 seconds without
proper equipment, whereas Ferrari's existing crew could only do it in 8 seconds with
millions of pounds worth of high tech equipment.
It was thought to be an excellent, bold move by the Ferrari management team as most
races are won and lost in the pits, giving Ferrari an advantage over every other
However, Ferrari got more than they bargained for! At the crew's first practice session,
not only was the scouse pit crew able to change all four wheels in under 6 seconds
but, within 12 seconds, they had re-sprayed, re-badged and sold the car to the McLaren
team for 8 cases of Stella, a bag of weed and some photos of Coulthard's bird in

Forest Gump's favorite phrase "Life is like a box of chocolates" has entered the
language as a way of explaining that one never knows what the next experience will
be. It's no wonder the screenwriter chose food imagery to convey his philosophy.
Food peppers everyday speech to such an extent that it's practically unavoidable.
We fish for compliments, beef about injustice, butter up the powers that be, and
ham it up to get a laugh.
A pretty woman's a hot tomato, a brainy student's an egghead, a muscled he-man is
beefcake, and a coward is just plain chicken. We table discussions, tap sources,
cook up new ideas, pull down menus on our computer screens, and offer recipes for
success. We toast the bride and groom, roast our fellows at honorific dinners, cajole
people who are slow as molasses to wake up and smell the coffee, act cool as a cucumber
when we get caught with our hands in the cookie jar, and turn beet red when we are
obliged to eat our words. Dollars to donuts you can bet that this week's selection
of terms is by no means the whole enchilada.
A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her name plate
that the teller's name is Patricia Waacke. So, he says, "Mrs. Waacke, I'd like to
get a loan to buy a boat and go on a long vacation." Patti looks at the frog in disbelief
and asks how much he wants to borrow. The frog says "$30,000." The teller asks his
name and the frog says that his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and
that it is OK, he knows the bank manager.
Patti explains that $30,000 is a substantial amount of money and that he will need
to secure some collateral against the loan. She asks if he has anything he can use
as collateral. The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny pink porcelain
elephant, about half an inch tall. Bright pink and perfectly formed. Very confused,
Patti explains that she'll have to consult with the manager and disappears into a
back office. She finds the manager and says: "There is a frog called Kermit Jagger
out there who claims to know you, and wants to borrow $30,000. And he wants to use
this as collateral." She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what the heck
The bank manager looks back at her and says "It's a knick knack, Patti Waacke. Give
the frog a loan. His old man's a rolling stone."
