Here you go plump people......................

I didn't want to use the word "fat" due to some previous thread problems.
But here is a new drink by coke that is suppose to burn some calories.

Swell, all they need to do now is add cocaine back to their recipe.

I don't think this is a urban legend but I read recently that the state dept. allows Coca-Cola to import couple hundred tons of the leaves - they boil it down for flavor - their secret ingredient...I also found this on the web...

Today's Coca-Cola incorporates a "decocainized" extract of the coca leaf in one of its flavoring compounds. However, these extracts do not come from the species of coca native to the eastern Andes Mountains of South America (Erythroxylum coca Lam --street cocaine), but from "Trujillo coca" (Erythroxylum novogranatense var, truxillense). Truillo coca is a plant that is well adapted to the desert conditions found in coastal Peru (Inciardi 7).

h8,

Since this is your first post on the forum, I think it only fair to make you aware the forum software allows moderators to see your IP address and know when someone is playing multiple identity games.

Not that anything like that's going on here...

If you want a drink with negative calories, just add a bunch of ice. Your body will have to expend energy to melt the ice.

Good thing you stopped it sounded like you were digging yourself a very deep hole and it was only getting deeper.

It's interesting you brought this up. A while back, I was drinking about 2 liters of ice water each work day. I had heard the idea of drinking ice water to lose weight. I was bored one day, so I decided to figure out how many calories were used just to warm up the water. I was surprised at the amount of calories burned. Theoretically it can add significantly to the amount of weight lost, not too mention the constant running to the toilet.

What? I was saying that I was telling on this person for being a racist (with a mean name to boot)

I took out the racist comment and if SG objects, screw it.

Come on people, the race jokes are getting to be too much.

I'd vote to delete the thread. Or at least all of the posts in it, since they could be construed as insensitive to at least one or more protected classes and/or people of weight-challenged nature.
