Travel Photo + Question: Will the World Run Out of Coke ?

Just think about it for a minute.

If you are a traveler,  try and think of a country you've been to that doesn't have Coca Cola.

This Ferriswheel photo was taken at a shopping center in Okinawa, Japan.

But, I can't think of any country I've visited that didn't have Coke.

People worry about the world running out of water, rainforests, coal, oil, whales, icebergs and polar bears and that's good.

But, has anybody ever thought of what would happen to earth

Kids would be calmer, there would be no need for dentists and there would no eyesores like this monstrosity in Okinawa....yep the world would be a better place without the stuff.

Yeah, I tend bar and always wonder why someone would take a good whiskey like Jack Daniels and ask to have Coke poured in it.
Ya'll don't put that stuff in yer Scotch. Do ya?

I drink a lot of Coca Cola, but I will survive... :) I'll just replace it with Dr Pepper (^_^)

RyukyuMike said...

Now, the good Dr sometimes, I have a sip or two as a hangover cure!

Ryan said...

No not in the whisky Mike but I have been known to add a little in my Morgans Spiced Rum from time to time mmm.

Shared with my SU followers.

Might be a good thing...ever since Coke started up, and carbonating with CO2, production has zoomed over the past century. Now if you compare their production graph with CO2 level graph there is a surprising similarity.:-)LOL>

RyukyuMike said...

First I heard of that. Interesting. Some peolple blame the cows expelling gas. Coulda been carbonated drinks, all along!

RyukyuMike said...

That's a popular drink, Morgan and Coke, over here. Not with the locals; the foreigners.
LOL You had me going, thinking that Captain Morans came from over your way so, I went behind the bar and read the label. The stuff come all the way from Puerto Rico. I learnt something today!

How am I supposed to focus on anything today when you've got me worrying about running out of Coke? Your photo reminds me of the 80 foot wooden Coke bottle at AT&T ballpark. They certainly do their share of advertising.

What a cool photo & Ferris wheel! I went to the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta, Georgia last month...they should have one of these too!

RyukyuMike said...

Now, I'm starting to see how popular it is with bloggers.

RyukyuMike said...

Sometime, I'll have to go do a night shot of it and see if they light up the Coca Cola embem.

Great shot Mike!

You know, when I first moved to Korea I lived in a fairly small city. In fact, I didn't even actually live in the city. I lived almost in a rice paddy. We would go to "town" for groceries, and we had to time one visit for the day the diet coke arrived. They only had one shipment a month, and I sold out almost before it hit the shelves. Knowing now what I do about aspartame I pretty much avoid the stuff. (Plus DC is really expensive in Korea!)

RyukyuMike said...

Thanks. Glad you know about aspertame. I never heard of the stuff but, will avoid it if I ever run across any.
