coke is cocaine and crack is a stronger form of cocaine so therefore, coke is basically crack
User avatar #42 to #40 - Cleavland Steamer (01/31/2013) [-]
Crack is cocaine that has been cooked in a mixture of water and baking soda to produce rocks that can be smoked, unlike powder cocaine. It is cheaper and more addictive, but it isn't just a "stronger form of cocaine".

If they didn't they would have been sued for ********* of money

They could have said no, turned the other way and let them sell the secrets to someone else. While you are correct, they still did a really good thing for Coke.

Pepsi is a rich company. You would be surprised what they could get away with (other than stealing the secrets)

but then pepsi would have had two major competitors instead of one
#185 - raynagrimm (01/31/2013) [-]
the hero and villain must coexist, for without one, the others life is meaningless
#1 - Rascal (01/30/2013) [-]
I agree.

Actually, both companies have done this for each other on a few occasions. You wouldn't really gain anything from getting their recipe. 1: People who like Pepsi don't want their Pepsi to taste like Coke and 2: even if they were successful in eliminating Coke as a competitor there comes the issue of anti-trust and monopoly laws which would break up the company. not to mention that there would be a huge public backlash as people would see it as Pepsi practicing dirty business tricks and the whole thing would probably blow up in their face and they themselves would take a financial hit.

TL;DR there is nothing to gain for Pepsi from stealing Coke's recipe
User avatar #192 to #141 - linktheherooftime (01/31/2013) [-]
So basically what you're saying is: Even if Pepsi started selling Coke, and eliminated them as a competitor that the US monopoly laws would just separate the company, and you would just end up with one company selling Coke and the other selling Pepsi just like before.

Coke is coke and pepsi is pepsi.

Sometimes I feel like having a coke, and sometimes I want pepsi... I dont want two of the exact same product in a different container.
User avatar #119 to #114 - mcatheistnuggets ONLINE (01/31/2013) [-]
Pepsi and Coke may both be colas, but they taste way different.
User avatar #121 to #119 - snakefire (01/31/2013) [-]
Exactly
User avatar #118 to #114 - thegamerslife (01/31/2013) [-]
yes but the point is if they had done it pepsi would have had their own "coke" drink that would have tasted the same and coke could have lost massive amounts of business.
User avatar #120 to #118 - snakefire (01/31/2013) [-]
and then they would get sued for more than they own for corporate espionage
User avatar #123 to #120 - thegamerslife (01/31/2013) [-]
This says "bought". if they had done so is a transaction their is no grounds to sue pepsi but they could go after the seller of the info but from the content i am guessing it was actually threw coke somehow and would be a huge legal mess but i think pepsi would get away with it and the customers.

off topic, how do you make you pic move? what threshold is it to be able to do that?
User avatar #161 to #153 - snakefire (01/31/2013) [-]
Its a gif image file. its really just a compilation of frames thats animated
User avatar #183 to #161 - thegamerslife (01/31/2013) [-]
I know what a .gif is i just don't care about file type. I just thought there was some threshold before you could do it. so I guess ill go see if i can ad one to my profile. :)
User avatar #154 to #153 - gowge ONLINE (01/31/2013) [-]
Hell i dont know i just saved a gif and used it i think it works with most gifs
User avatar #26 - Omegashenron (01/31/2013) [-]
...Wait, what would they have done with the teade secret? Like no one would notice they taste exactly the same as coke? the reason they both stay afloat is because they both have different tastes and people prefer one or the other. The people who prefer pepsi would start hating pepsi because it tastes like coke and start buying something else.
User avatar #41 to #26 - RamzaBeoulve (01/31/2013) [-]
Pepsi would just make their own form of Coca-Cola. They wouldn't make their normal Pepsi taste like it. That's retarded.
User avatar #29 to #26 - MitsukiOokami (01/31/2013) [-]
I have no idea how big business works, but Coke made a big deal about thanking Pepsi, not necessarily about not buying the secret, but for warning them of the security breech.

I prefer Pepsi rather than Coke, **** me right?
#49 to #5 - hangingtree (01/31/2013) [-]
I like Pepsi more but that's probably because my mother works for Quaker in the Pepsi department.   
I guess having free Pepsi, just makes me like it more then Coke.

Same here, tastes way better. I actually only like Coca Cola when it´s from McDonalds or something, it tastes completely different then the Bottles you buy. But as I only eat at McDonalds once or twice a Year, Pepsi takes the lead
User avatar #18 to #16 - RandomAnonGuy (01/31/2013) [-]
I've never bought a bottle of pepsi because I always preferred the coke from McDonalds so assumed I'd like all coke more...
User avatar #19 to #18 - ljxjlos (01/31/2013) [-]
Try Pepsi, at least bottled it tastes way better than bottled coke
User avatar #22 to #5 - ILikeGreen (01/31/2013) [-]
Me too. But whenever there isn't any pepsi and only coke, I prefer diet. It taste better for me.
User avatar #20 to #5 - stonedaddy (01/31/2013) [-]
Pepsi master race!
User avatar #21 to #5 - MitsukiOokami (01/31/2013) [-]
Pepsi is better than Coke. Just a fact of life.
User avatar #27 to #5 - archiferd (01/31/2013) [-]
I also prefer pepsi, I think it's just because that's what my parents always got when I was little.

**iamjustheretoroll rolled a random image posted in comment #10 at But coffee's good for you! ** **** you right... Cola is, and allways will be the best soda ever, in my opinion.

#135 to #5 - bigken (01/31/2013) [-]
Am I the only one who can't taste the difference? Is there something wrong with me?
User avatar #139 to #135 - admiralen ONLINE (01/31/2013) [-]
yeah, theres a huge difference, pepsi is way sweeter then coke
User avatar #75 to #5 - grocer (01/31/2013) [-]
Once I said Pepsi tastes better to a teacher. They said you only like Pepsi more because it has more sugar. I said exactly, it tastes better.
User avatar #30 to #5 - ultrarobbie (01/31/2013) [-]
I do as well. It is sweet, and when it has ice it makes me cry with joy.
User avatar #34 to #30 - unknownmercury (01/31/2013) [-]
Apparently I'm the only person here who prefers the Coke to Pepsi.
User avatar #35 to #34 - ultrarobbie (01/31/2013) [-]
We all like different things. I like coke, but prefer Pepsi overall for its sweetness.
User avatar #63 to #35 - wellfuckmylife (01/31/2013) [-]
I love Pepsi and I prefer that.. But when I want to make rum cocktail, I prefer coke.
User avatar #146 to #63 - ultrarobbie (01/31/2013) [-]
Yeah, same here I think (or maybe the first one I had was pepsi I don't know).


EITHER WAY MALIBU AND COKE IS AMAZING UNCE UNCE UNCE
User avatar #147 to #146 - wellfuckmylife (01/31/2013) [-]
Damn. Haven't tried this yet. But I guess it's a MUST.
User avatar #162 to #147 - ultrarobbie (01/31/2013) [-]
Oh, I thought you were referring to it. And yes, you must. I find it to be the tastiest thing.
User avatar #164 to #162 - wellfuckmylife (01/31/2013) [-]
The tastiest cocktail I ever have tried was from Skittles Vodka and sprite..
Next time, Malbu and coke it is

Well, yeah, obviously. They treated Coca-cola with the same respect they expect.

Funny, I like Pepsi at different times than I like Coke. For instance, I like Pepsi whenever there isn't Coke available.

Good to know some companies are willing to be civil, even nice, to each other.
User avatar #134 - bighairyfart (01/31/2013) [-]
i hate coke and pepsi, but coke products(dr pepper, root beer, sprite, etc.) are infinitely better than pepsi products(sierra mist, etc.)
User avatar #140 to #134 - ivoryhammer (01/31/2013) [-]
Coke doesn't own Dr. Pepper, Dr. Pepper is from the same company that makes 7up and Canada Dry

oh. well ill be damned...

This is actually very common in free markets. The invisible hand really does exist. Retail shops does this too. Most big competitors work together to eliminate theft.
