2005-03-11 - Coked Out

I was compelled to post this photo today after reading some rather scary facts about Coke. I already knew it wasn't the healthiest beverage with all the sugar in it (not to mention other questionable secret ingredients), but I didn't realise quite how potent it is. I won't list all the facts I but one that sticks in my mind is that if you left a T-Bone steak in coke, it would be completely gone in two days! Which leads me to wonder, if you were caught in a giant vat of coke, would you dissolve too?!

PS: Coke is apparently also very good for cleaning engines!

Jeroen Haha, indeed. One that has always bothered me as well is that you can remove rust with coke.. cute.

Awesome photo! Did you do post-processing on it, or did the engine just happen to have this monotone look? I quite like the difference between the somewhat coloured can and the engine block it's sitting in/on.
Stephen Cameron Thanks Jeroen! I did do some post processing on this one but I tried to keep it reasonably subtle. Basically just a mask around the coke can and some desaturation / colour toning on the rest of the image...
Andy. Well, the mythbusters pretty well proved that a lot of the coke stories were false.
But you can use it to clean rust. Phosphoric acid does that..

So don't make my coke shares go down! :)

Fantastic imagery so far dude. Keep up the good work.
