....... or it did, according to this link. American public radio, Thisamericanlife.org claims to have uncovered the secret recipe used. Whether it is true or not, I am bit sceptical tbh.....

I often feel myself drunk after Coca Cola (when I drink it too much). I remember there was one time while there was some hell feeling when I was in bed after Coca Cola, it was seeming like all the things and my bed were flying around but the feeling was awesome!

Actually, any drink containing sugar also contains alcohol. Just not very much of it. I think Coca-Cola in its finished-product form contains something like 0.3% alcohol. The Dutch looked into it decades ago when the rumour first surfaced, to see if they should ban under-16s from drinking it. Even the Christian-Democrats couldn't find an argument against it, so I guess it mustn't have been too bad.

If you're any good at chemistry, you could probably devise a simple test to find the alcohol content of different soft drinks. Come to think of it, that might actually be interesting.

Considering your body can produce it's own alcohol, it isn't that big of a deal.  As long as you drink Coca Cola like a soft drink and not beer.  Beer should be banned.

I just think beer should be banned considering there are enough idiots that can't drink responsibly.

So because a minority can't drink responsibly, the majority should suffer? How about individual responsibility and freedom of choice?

And what, let more people die because of the minority that don't care about drinking responsibly?  No thanks.

At the very least, have more restrictions on drinking.

Ok. And more restrictions on driving - over-tired drivers kill many yearly, not to mention the pollution. More restrictions on fast food - cardiovascular disease is a prime killer in the western world. More restrictions on coffee - it raises blood pressure so might kill those with hypertension. More restrictions on sex - some people die of overexertion every year, we can't have that. More restrictions on sugar - it has been demostrated to be a possible trigger for psychoses in the schizophrenic. Do you see the point, or should I go on?

It's not really up to you to 'let' more people die, or not (nobody is actually letting people die). Nonetheless, as demonstrated by Thomas, there are numerous things which kill. Why not ban all of them?

"At the very least, have more restrictions on drinking."

There already are restrictions on drink-driving, as well as restrictions on the age one must be to drink in public.

In Australia, alcohol caused violence is a massive concern, however it's commonly accepted that the biggest problem is cultural rather than legal. Ultimately instead of resorting to legal restrictions and bans, we need to figure out a way to make young people understand that one can have fun without drinking to excess, and violence is never acceptable.

Banning beer doesnt work, as 1920's America showed. All that led to was an upsurge in organised criminal activity. As for restrictions, short of following the idiot minority (and they are a minority) around I dont see how that is going to work either
