    She drank 2 Gallons of Coca Cola a Day. She must have had a bladder the size of a basketball...

    That's a shame, she's only 30 years old and she died because she had poor eating and drinking habits.

    Coke's involvement in this sounds like a reporter trying to create a scandal. 2 gallons of soda can't be nearly as bad as her 30 cigs a day...

    You should, especially since I think it involves Mountain Dew. I won't spoil anything & it wasn't really a main focus or anything, but yeah. It was a neat episode.

    For some reason I wanted to see how many cans that would be a day. As far as my crappy math goes, that's 23-28 cans of coke per day... Not only did she die, but the coroners probably don't need to do anything to preserve the body.

    Hah.



    ... but yeah, I don't get it. Like, I can barely drink that much water in a day unless I'm working a lot or whatever & sweating/pissing my weight in the water, and even then it usually needs to be accompanied by food to avoid feeling like I'm gonna blow the fuck up. So yeah, I don't see how anyone can drink that much pop & not keel over, but I guess that's a moot point now eh?

    Too much of anything will kill you, it wasn't the soda that caused her death it was her obvious ocd. It's not even like the soda was her worst habit, but the article just kinds of glosses over her excessive smoking and coffee habits, two things much worse then soda in large quantities.
