Don't touch coke, wont touch coke, and no, it does not look inviting.

As for the ice, I suspect it is similar to the way miners used to crack rocks by setting a fire next to them - i.e. the ice hits the water, starts to get warm, but uneven heating causes the stresses within the ice to cause small cracks to form.

Thank you Mr Secret Coke Lover !!......


This seems like a reasonably valid answer to me. ....it's so invitingly viable that I am going to believe it gratis.

CHEERS George !!

Heres a little experiment for you, Neily.

what you need

2 glasses
ice
cola

what you do

put ice straight from the freezer in the first glass and pour the cola in. the ice cracks and you get lots of fizzy bubbles.

Now, with glass 2. put the ice in but let it get wet, wet! yes, just wait a few seconds until it starts to melt. It is now not "dry" but "wet", pour your cola in.

what do your hear and see this time?




oh, i may post this over there also!

As long as it's Rwhites, and you do the dance and sing the song on your way to the fridge! This will also alert George, who will run off and he will not be able to pinch anymore cola.
