Isn’t cyberspace marvelous?

…”I'd like to buy the world a Coke and keep it company”. …



Yes, you can watch 50 years of Coke commercials via the Library of Congress (LOC) site right here.

No, I'm not going to take any cheap shots [since when?] but, the LOC has a retrospective collection of Coke commercials available in (what?) RealG2 format. From the Hilltop to Mean Joe Greene to the polar bears, they are all there (well, almost all).

I’d like to buy the world a Coke ... er, maybe not.
But have no fear! According to Wired, Coke will actually be good for you ”in the future”.

In a release by the Centre for Science and Environment, a non-government body, which contended that 11 brands sold by the two soft drinks makers (Coke & Pepsi)contained high levels of pesticide residues.
And you were worried about high fructose corn syrup!

Try Diet Coke Plus - it contains several vitamins and minerals:
Each eight-ounce serving of Diet Coke Plus provides a good source of Niacin (vitamin B3), vitamins B6and B12, zinc and magnesium (15% Daily Value [DV] for Niacin, B6 and B12, 10% DV for zinc and magnesium).
Great news, no? Now you don't have to take that pesky multi-vitamin every day. Just have a few cans of Diet Coke Plus and you'll be all set...
I'm just waiting for them to combine soft drinks with OTC medication: "have a hangover and can't stay awake at your morning meeting? Try new Coke NSAID - it comes in two flavors: cherry aspirin and vanilla ibuprofen..." Yum...
