    Link: The Amazing World of Coca Cola - Guess which countries are the biggest consumers of Coke? It`s not who you`d think.

    Incredible! I though everyone knew about the exploititave "Cola Wars" and the effect of globalisation on Latin America In the 1970`s and 80`s. They even made a (fictional) comic book series about it (Crisis, Carlos Esquerra and Pat Mills), with poor kids being recruited as armed guerillas by the two big Cola companies.

    Pepsi is better. Pepsi max beats diet coke, but diet coke is still quite nice.

    I wouldn`t say Pepsi is awful, but it just doesn`t have the same kick a cold bottle of Coke does. The fizziness, that sweetness, the flavour, it`s just... perfect.

    I don`t follow the "per capita" number because it doesn`t say if it is annually or what. For example, it just says "Mexico 635" that is 635 cokes consumed per person per year? That means everyone in Mexico, on average, consumes two cokes every day, and if I didn`t drink any today, someone else must have had four?

    I`ve got a full bottle of Coca-Cola from 1900-1916.

    the biggest problem is that the caffeine and sugar make you turn into an annoying incessant brat.

    Coca-Cola company has been stealing water from India and then bottling their liquid poison and selling it around the world. You wonder if you have done anything evil today, supporting this company is KILLING entire regions in India, millions of people without water.

    Have a Coke and a smile indeed!
