Pepsi is vastly inferior to Coke and everyone knows it. The over-sweetened bullshit that Marty McFly uses as an anchor to whatever year he's in has been the scourge of Taco Bell patrons for decades. Sure, it means we can get Baja Blast for fourth meal, but at what cost.

Even more shocking that in the Pepsi challenge, people prefer the taste of Pepsi to the actual nectar of the gods, Coca Cola, beverage king. How could that be when Pepsi sucks in comparison to Coke.

Well, Malcolm Gladwell has the answer, according to Wales Online

“Pepsi is sweeter than Coke, so right away it had a big advantage in a sip test. Pepsi is also characterized by a citrusy flavor burst, unlike the more raisiny-vanilla taste of Coke. But that burst tends to dissipate over the course of an entire can. Pepsi, in short, is a drink built to shine in a sip test.”

So while Pepsi might be initially more inviting, it's actually shittier upon further inspection. Figures. Enjoy your fleeting moment of joy, Pepsi drinkers, because your moment in the sun is fleeting.

Once upon a time, Coca-Cola spent $100 million on cans filled with water that spelled like farts. It was supposed to be a massive promotion so that you would find cool things inside the can. These special cans would send a spring-loaded prize flying out of the can as soon as it was tapped. But these cans were also filled with water that smelled like farts. 

Yeah, I think I'll just have a gulp Pepsi.

First you get the money, then you get the power, then you get arrested.

32-year-old fisherman Thomas Breeding came across a shit-ton of coke in the Gulf of Mexico and made the brilliant move of trying to it. After all, that’s what people in the movies do, right?

He’s now facing life in prison and a $4.25 million fine. That’ll change your life for sure. Just like in the movies.

“This changed my life and way of thinking and also made me aware of some of the dangers that can be found off shore in the Gulf,” Breeding wrote. “I would like to let the public know the dangers and what not to do if this situation comes about.”

Yeah, dealing a butt-ton of coke isn’t easy if you don’t know what you’re doing. It takes years of training to become a successful drug dealer. Haven’t you ever seen the movies?

It's kind of the reverse of Jesus turning water into wine, except definitely don't drink it.
