Where’s the Shit? In Your Soda, Schmuck

If you needed just one more reason not to drink harmful stuff like Coke, Pepsi or any other soda, would shit in your soda be good enough for y’all.

Think we’re joking?

No, kiddo.

Here’s an excerpt from a CNN story (‘Soda fountains contained fecal bacteria, study found) on the soda shit in your glass:

Nearly half of the 90 beverages from soda fountain machines in one area in Virginia tested positive for coliform bacteria — which could indicate possible fecal contamination, according to a study published in the January issue of International Journal of Food Microbiology.

Researchers also detected antibiotic-resistant microbes and E.coli in the soda samples.

“Certainly we come in contact with bacteria all the time,” Renee Godard, lead author of the study and professor of biology and environmental studies at Hollins University, a private liberal arts college in Roanoke, Virginia. “It’s simply that some bacteria may potentially cause some disease or gastrointestinal distress. One thing we hesitate with is that people get afraid of bacteria. Many of them are benign or helpful, but certainly, I don’t want E.coli in my beverage.”

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s drinking-water regulations require that all samples test negative for E.coli.

Many of the soda beverages from the dispensers fell below U.S. drinking-water standards, according to the findings.

Enjoy your soda shit now. πŸ™

    Just finished 7G Rainbow Colony in Sun TV. I liked it. Have you seen it?

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    As you like cooking and Meryl Streep, you may like “Julie & Julia”(I didn’t).. Did you read that book/blog? I found Amy Adams to be more adorable than Meryl in this movie.. maybe Julia Child was so annoying in real life..

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    No, we haven’t read the book…only read about the book in the New Yorker.

      RBXLUV10 – redbox code valid until Monday night.. that’s what I came here for..

      SearchIndia.com Responds:


      Damn…just returned …forgot to pick up the free DVD…will go out later.

      Will pick up Public Enemies and The Line.

      We now have three RedBox kiosks in a radius of 1 mile. Hard times ahead for both Netflix & Blockbuster.

    By the way, why the old system of moderating comments [where my comment would get lost in the dark for sometime before it gets approved] is brought back again? I saw it was changed with the theme.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Don’t know what you mean. Will check the settings later today.

    • boopalanj   January 10, 2010 at 2:34 pm

      Now this confuses. My previous comment does not appear here with a tag ‘awaiting moderation’. But my latest comment where I raised that doubt is being shown pending moderation. πŸ™

      SearchIndia.com Responds:

      No idea what caused it. We haven’t changed any settings.

    Similar instances have been there in the past.

    Dairy milk bars reportedly had worms in it and quite a few instances had been reported on it, some years ago, in India. Very recently, a local newspaper reported a similar incident with Dairy milk again. Old instance: http://www.rediff.com/money/2006/dec/24cad.htm

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Damn, we just had a Cadbury Fruit & Nut that we picked up from our neighborhood Walgreen’s because it was on sale. πŸ˜‰ So-so.

    Many years back, we also found worms in a Cadbury chocolate bar that we purchased from Nilgiris in India.

    Overall, Cadbury chocolates are not good here.

    In another noteworthy row of highly carbonated drinks such as Pepsi / Coke / etc sometime ago, India almost went on to ban selling them. That time, SRK who was the brand ambassador of Pepsi, said – ” If Pepsi is banned in India, I will go to US and drink ” [the same tongue which later said – ” I don’t feel like stepping on American soil” πŸ˜‰ ]

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    All carbonated drinks are bad for health.

    Let SRK feed his brats Pepsi.

    In India, we remember reading that these soft drink firms have also been blamed for depleting ground water.

  7. boopalanj   January 10, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    He seems to have asked the press – “how safe is the water we drink or mother’s milk that also contains harmful chemicals?” to counter the issue of carbonated soft drinks. Mother’s milk and harmful chemicals!

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Most of our film stars (SRK included) are bad role models for the youngsters who blindly ape them.

      Sorry for flooding it with many comments. Even after several attempts, my comment did not appear. So had to paste part by part, to know which part of the comment was causing a problem.

      Not sure about it still, I had a URL in the above comment as a reference. But only after removing it, the comment had appeared.

      SearchIndia.com Responds:

      Looks like a temporary glitch. There was an ‘interesting’ URL in your previous comment.

      • boopalanj   January 10, 2010 at 3:55 pm

        πŸ™‚ Not that one. A different URL was placed in the above comment for which I replied to [I had removed it].

        Here is another one – Swiss restaurant to serve meals cooked with breast milk. [Donor women will receive approx 5.4 USD per 14 ounces of milk they give] πŸ˜€


        Wonder if they would establish a ‘dairy’ for extracting milk πŸ˜‰ [Are there namithas over Swiss? πŸ˜‰ ]

        SearchIndia.com Responds:

        Pal Koha (Doodh Peda) now has a different meaning for us. πŸ˜‰

  8. boopalanj   January 10, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    By the way an (not-so-) interesting incident has been described here about breast milk – about a king who usually took only black coffee being given a cup of milk by a local village chief [from his wife who just then delivered a baby]. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breast_milk#Extraordinary_consumption πŸ˜‰

    SearchIndia.com Responds:


    BTW, we stopped consuming milk several years back. Only black Starbucks or Organic Lemon Ginger Tea for us.

    We are not convinced of the virtues of drinking milk ahem cow milk. πŸ˜‰

    The overpriced and unhealthy colas need to be kicked out of the world.
    Barring some cricketers and film stars and companies of course, nobody gained anything from that.
    Whatever may be George Fernandes’s credentials, he was right (by design or accident) in banning Coca Cola (foriegn goods ?) in India in 1975-76.
    That held up to almost 1993, when floodgates opened up, and the stuff that actually costs not more than Re. 1 is being sold at about Rs. 10 since then.

    On another note, have you heard John Barry’s score in Out of Africa (Meryl Streep and Robert Redford) ? The movie itself is quite good, but you must listen to the music ASAP.
    And the same hold to John Barry’s score for Dances with Wolves, esply the buffalo hunting scene. The music is not to be missed.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Just purchased both Baby Elephant Walk (Henry Mancini) from the old John Wayne film Hatari and John Barry’s score for Out of Africa.

    Both are good but we like Henry Mancini’s Baby Elephant Walk a wee bit better because it’s got a faster pace. Plus, we’ve also seen Hatari.

    Listened to Dances with Wolves. Would like to listen again before making up our mind.

    As it is, I had taken a wow of NOT to watch any movies of this MORON named Karan Johar after I had seen Dostana in 2008!!
    I think WE THE PEOPLE are mainly responsible for these lousy bollywood movies. WE accept all the crap and go the the cinema halls and watch them, and glorify and worship our actors/actresses.
    It’s high time that we face this reality and change our habits! Unless we change, Bollywood will never change!!

    Most Bollywood films are junk.

      And as far as Soda is concerned, I quit soda in 2009 (cold turkey) and hope that I never put a single drop of this shit in my body after I had known that the pH level of soda is between 2.5 and 3.5. This shit is highly acidic.
      Were it not for our body’s natural defense (stealing important alkaline based minerals like calcium, magnesium etc. from our bones, liver, kidneys, etc to buffer the high acid from soda) just one can of soda has enough acid to kill us!!!

      And now a desi is Soda Queen.
