Did you know originally in 1886 Coca Cola was introduced as an 'intellectual beverage' to boost brain power?
Did you know that the origonal coca cola had cocaine in it?

Yes indeedy....hence the 'Coca' part of Coca-Cola being an abbreviation of Cocaine. ;)

Did you know that many inhabitants (approximately 67 families) in the town of Quincy, Florida, became millionaires overnight after a local banker persuaded everyone to buy shares in a new beverage called Coca-Cola?  During the depression, Quincy became the richest town per capita in the whole of America.
