Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like coca cola. C-O-L-A cola.

May 8th
On this day in 1886 pharmacist John Styth Pemberton invents Coca-cola. Pharmacists would often come up with flavored drinks so their clients could take their often bad tasting medicine. The taste of that soda created 125 years ago was alot different than what we have today, but that's because some of the things they put in there were bad (cocaine amongst others) or have changed (refined sugars). I hear they drink that stuff in the south like its water!
It's also the 66th anniversary of the end of WWII in Europe, or VE day in America and Brittain. This occured with the unconditional surrender of Germany and the Axis powers. Most of the German high command didn't want to be captured by the Soviet Army, as the war could have dragged out to the last man as Hitler had wished, before killing himself. Way to lead by example!
