Brakes, Rotors and Coca Cola?!

Another question is, who in their right mind pushes to make sales from the physical debilitation of other humans? Is terrorism relative…?

It really is amazing what people put inside their body and the extent of how willingly we destroy our bodies didn’t hit me until the day I ventured, for the first time, to change the brakes and rotors on my car.

In the picture, above, I am on the left and my friend, Tristan, is on the right. He was helping me on my first-time venture.

Underneath the axle, you’ll see a bin filled with a black liquid. The liquid is a combination of rust and road-gunk, removed from the axle, IN LESS THAN A MINUTE, mixed with Coca Cola!

Initially, the rotor was well and truly rusted on to the axle. We had tried hitting it with a mallet, WD-40 and we even tried using the rotor as a jacking point in an attempt to release the rotor from the axle. We were ready to take the car to the garage.

I’d seen several videos of Coca Cola removing rust in different situations but social media is a thing, isn’t it? I suggested that it could be worth the $2 if it saves the cost of the garage replacing the parts for me.
We went to CVS and bought a 2L bottle of Coca Cola and poured 1L of it behind the rotor. There was loud fizzing and, initially, the liquid concoction ran on the floor before we caught it in a plastic bin. Less than a minute later, hoping but not expecting, I gave the rotor two hits of the mallet. The rotor popped free and came off without issue. Crazy!

I’m not a doctor so I am not qualified to give the exact scientific breakdown of what Coca Cola does to the body. You can feel free to click on this LINK¬†and read an article from http://www.flatulencecures.com.

Not being a doctor doesn’t exclude me from being a healthy human being, capable of drawing conclusion and creating opinion so my thought is pretty simple. I don’t need to put a liquid inside me that degrades heavy rust and grime on a car axle in seconds! Further, having experienced what I did, what does it make me to give a young child the same liquid? Another question is, who in their right mind pushes to make sales from the physical debilitation of other humans? Is terrorism relative…?

I'm extremely opinionated and have lead somewhat of a colourful life, that I'd like to share with others. I believe that sharing our experiences and thoughts can help others no end, as we live this life of social media that has caused us to become islands, often suffering in silence, while we put on the front of the good life. I'm also an avid sportsman, track athlete and am headed towards a purpose of teaching the Word of God. Always something to say, always something to share, always eager to hear from others.
