A&W 2-liter Safe

If you are a root beer connoisseur and also a collector of fine things, now you can protect them in your very own A&W Root Beer safe. That's right, a safe stuffed right inside a 2-liter bottle of the standard. Don't ask me how or why I found this little gem on the web. I guess it is true you can find any thing.

The safe inside the bottle is 3 inches by 2 1/2 inches which is plenty of space to conceal your all of your little important valuables - perhaps, your custom gold bottle opener. The bottle itself is 11 1/2 inches tall. Behind the label is the secret area that will not open up accidentally because it is fitted with a special mechanism that prevents it from being opened unless you rotate the base counterclockwise and pull it apart. Nifty indeed. For more information, check out there website.

A&W: Approved by the American Dental Association???

I was surfing the net the other day and noticed a particular story written for Time magazine regarding the affects of soda on tooth enamel. David Bjerklie reported on a scientific experiment by the University of Maryland Dental School in which they took tiny blocks of tooth enamel and exposed them to many different sodas. All sodas caused damage to the tooth enamel. Canned iced tea caused 30 times more damage than fresh ice tea. The worst drinks were non-colas such as Mountain Dew. There was no difference between diet and regular sodas. Only one drink caused virtually no harm to the enamel: A&W Root Beer. The researchers concluded it was due to the standard having less additives than the other sodas tested.
