Beverage Creates a Buzz

Indians in a remote mountain village in southern Colombia are marketing a particularly refreshing soft drink that harks back to Coca-Cola's original formula, when "coca" was in the name for a reason.

For six years, the Nasa have been quietly selling coca-flavored cookies, aromatic teas, wines and ointments at informal sidewalk stalls and in health food stores.

Chewing coca leaves, which depresses the central nervous system, has enabled Indians to soften the effects of hunger, hard work and high altitude for centuries.

I wonder how long it will take for these products to show up in the programmers lounge of Microsoft. Maybe then Windows Vista would ship on time.

It's the "Real Thing."
