    Joanie, this came straight outta' left field, but is funny as hell! It reminds me of the day as a kid when I opened up a can of green beans to find that half the volume was missing... but as a replacement, there sat a big old green canned grasshopper!

    Blarrrgh.

      Crabcakes, your experience vindicates me to all my friends who think that particular fear of mine is unwarranted!

      I also never ate at KFC once I heard the urban legend that some woman found a crunchy deep fried rat in a bucket. I'm a sucker for just about any story about processed food and a rat.

        For you people watchers out there: watch kids when they eat sugar, or especially a sugary drink. I was once in a crowd with an ornery kid. Mom gave him, I think it was an orange soda, with a straw. The kid instantly went silent and thoughtful as he sucked down a good 16 oz of artificial goodness. I was stunned. It didn't look that different from a junkie shooting heroin.

          I didn't mean to imply that kids should eat sugar, I should have worded it better, but that sweets such as sodas appeal to a child's taste. Most children can not fathom how adults can drink bitter things, like coffee and alcohol w/o the addition of sweet flavors to off-set the bitter. My viewpoint probably has to do with my age and upbringing, as a child I never saw adults drinking soda and we kids only got soda on special occasions. It was not something we had in the fridge at all times, we were accustomed to having a pitcher of water in the fridge if we wanted something cold to drink. I do not think children should be given copious amounts of sugar, I know what sugar does to kids.

            Stephen Guyenet did a great article on this.

            Basically, as kids we love sweet and salty, the very basic stuff. As we get older, the bitter foods start to appeal more. It has to do with the rewards of bitter foods. For instance, alcohol, dark chocolate, and coffee tend to all turn off kids. However, all three offer drug induced rewards, which allow us to easily grow a liking of them.

              Try that urban legend debunking site thingy - Snopes or something like that. It probably had that in there.

              You got me on a roll here... once, again when I was a kid, I took a huge swig of my daddy's soda pop, only to find that my dad had stopped drinking the soda and used the liquid to (hold your mouth, this gets bad...) - douse his cigarette butts. I got the heaves from that one almost instantly.

              I do also have a fear of cans, but mine concerns open cans outdoors during the warm weather months - the yellow jackets. I have this irrational fear of one of those mean little shits being in there when one of my kids takes a drink. To solve that, we use closed jugs - those huge jugs that actually are coffee jugs, from our local gas station, with the snap-on top and one tiny hole, just big enough for a straw.

                I was a volunteer on the ambulance for many years and what got me re coke, was they used it to dissolve the blood off the road after a nasty !!! It also takes short work to dissolve a nail ........so my concern is, what is it doing to your insides if this is true ????
                Not judging Gorbag - My children drink it, but I refuse to buy it for them.......and they are 27, 25 and 17....so I suppose I can't force food choices on them

                    I like some diet sodas and if i have one on hand, i'll have some. I rarely buy it these days. I don't terribly miss it if there's none around.
                    The aspartame is probably bad enough, but the bone calcium leeching phosphoric acid is even worse imo.

                      Good news for everybody; no maggots has been obseved in Diet Coke to this very day! On the other hand, lots of maggots has been obseved in primal food such as beef liver and meat - so watch out! - the maggots loves your meat, but they don't like to drink diet Coke...

                          When you vomit next time, fill the stomach acid into a bottle and then put a nail in the liquid. After some time the nail may dissolve completely! Try to put a cobber coin in ketchup or vinagre and observe what happens? Ordinary Coke will be very acid due to both sugar and gas, so that may explain why you can use it to clean up coagulated blood in the road.

                          People used to have the same irrational fear related to coffee and tea when these were introduced to the Europeans in the 17 th century and some still think they are harmful, even if science in meta-studies on more than 30.000 people have shown that coffee drinkers lives longer and have a better health than people that don't drink it.

                          But irrational opinions related to food products will always exist, like religious beliefs, but my bet is au contraire that DietCoke is indeed very healthy, and it also helps me to detox my body when fasting, so I cannot other to laugh about the obsessive scaremongery from Paleobird and other posters related to a good alternative to sugar, HFCS or prosessed fruit Juice...

                            Women said tea was evil because men went to coffee houses and drank it all day instead of staying home and being a "more attentive husband." Another popular legend was that when tea was first popularized, women weren't allowed to drink it because it would give them too many "lustful energies." So, ladies couldn't get it, and weren't allowed to try. Nice.

                              LOL, and other controversies before that as well, when trying to introduce coffee to Europe:

                              "However, the introduction of coffee into Europe was not without controversy. According to many accounts, a group of Christian clerics tried to have coffee banned before it had become widely available. They came to Pope Clement VIII (1535-1605), claiming that coffee was for Satan's followers, and that Christians who drank it might lose their souls to the Devil. But before Pope Clement would ban coffee he insisted on tasting it. After drinking his first cup, the Pope was so impressed with the flavour that he reasoned that such a drink could not possibly be the work of Satan, and instead declared that coffee should be baptized to make it a true Christian drink."

                                A fried of mine drank that stuff and had horrible health problems, she had migraines that lasted for days on end. Made her feel suicidal. She died of a brain aneurism. Really made me wonder.
