Coca Cola Overdrive

By my estimation, approximately 1 million people have sent me this article, entitled "Cola Habit Behind Death of Woman."

My take-aways are twofold:

1. How terrible that a woman died of over-consumption of soda.
2. How terrible that my friends fear such a fate for me.

But, I can assure you that I will never, ever drink 2 gallons of Diet Coke.  Well, unless I'm super stressed.  Or tired.  Or have a really hard day.  Or just need a lot of Diet Coke.

But probably never.


  1. 2 gallons can kill you? That doesn't seem like enough. I'm sure I've done that before.

  2. Oh, we're in no danger. She drank 8-10 Liters of REGULAR coke a day instead of eating food. Much like in Beowulf times they just drank 3-4 liters of mead and didn't eat. Also, since she was a smoker, I assume that this article was written by the smoking lobby.

    Crisis averted. I can go back to my delicious Sonic 32 oz. diet dr. pepper with fluffy ice.

  3. I'm rationalizing it similarly. As in, I don't smoke, and don't drink regular Coke. So, if anything, I'll die of Aspartame poisoning. And, let's just be honest: everyone will have seen it coming. xoxo
