Good piece of information, but even then many youngsters like to drink coke in India, WHY? It is dam clear thay the coke like thing is thrown away from foreign countries so they are trying to sell that scrap in India.And for the same they are threatening to withdraw their investment.I thisny coke is trying to dominate India and Idians should wake up and themselves reject coke.

That was a great piece of research. I have stopped drinking coke since 2 years. I have heard that it can cause tooth cavity, so i gave up drinking coke. It also causes obesity, and this is the reason why kids of this generation are so obese.

That was some nice information. I am a heavy coke drinker for over 35 years and am as healthy as ever. I took my once in 3 years check up recently, and the doctor called me a paragon of health. I think the facts you have given might make someone think that it is dangerous to drink. Then how powerful are the fluids in our stomach. I think even ceramic will desolve in it. Also when you put sodium into water you get fire. That does not make water dangerous. It is just a reaction.

X-Men: 1. Wolverine was created by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockran (may he rest in peace). 2. Wolverine was supposed to be a teenager at first, but Claremont thought it would be better if he were an adult since most of the members were adults already. 3. Rogue was intented to be 40ish of age at first, but throughout her run in the X-Men she got younger, so an origin story was created on her to explain it all. 4. Hugh Jackman has a twin sister, she looks just like Hugh, and when filming for X2 was going on, she dressed up like Hugh and no one on the set could tell whether or not the person dressed as Wolverine was him or his sister. 5. More double takes: Shawn Ashmore has an identical twin brother who also happens to be an actor, and strangely enough, his brother also dressed up like his character Iceman on the set of X2 and no one could tell if Iceman was Shawn or his twin brother. Talk about mutant mayhem. 6. The women on the set of X2 and X3 are heavy eaters. Famke Jensen and Rebecca Romaijn are both 5'11' and so they needed lots of food to keep their strength up while shooting all of those difficult stunts, that was right, these women has no doubles. 7. Chris Claremont and Stan Lee made appearences in X3. Stan was the mailman and Chris was the neighbor mowing his lawn in the very beginning of the film. 8. Anna Paquin actually did color a streak in her hair while playing the part of Rogue. She was so devoted to the character that she wanted the white streak in her hair to be real. 9. James Marsden (Cyclops) was shooting X3 while shooting Superman Returns. Cyclops was killed early in the film because of the filming conflicts. 10. Bryan Singer directed both the first two X-Men films and Superman Returns. It was a good thing that Bryan was choosen to direct Superman Returns because most of the other people who wanted to direct were not going to stay true to the character like Bryan did. 11. Gambit was going to be in X3, but no one could agree as to how to go about his character. In fact, it would have taken more than two hours to introduce his character according to many of the writers. 12. Kelsey Grammer or Fraiser and Sideshow Bob was claimed by everyone to be the perfect Beast for X3. He was born to play that character. 13. The X-Men are divided in Civil War, the new Marvel Comics series that has been going on for a year now.
