    Ahh well maybe that's the problem. No coffee today or yesterday for that matter. Just a cup 'o Messmer 'Rosehip and Hibiscus Flower' herbal tea both days. And a shot of Minute Maid grapefruit juice as a "chaser". LOL

    What we determined was that in most cases the metal the cans were made of was of somewhat substandard quality, and this allowed for defects in the can itself. We found cans that had either leaked their contents or that were only partially filled. This also caused instability in the flats and cases, which allowed for crushing to take place as well. Again we found this was due to the quality of the cans themselves.

    Actually, from experiences in the Arabian Gulf, loading stores, and helping the Canteen guys, I feel there might be some merit to the intial complaint, ie: cans that leaked.

    I know this isn't making a lot of sense, and no we did not do metalurgy tests on the cans, but by comparison between cans that leaked and those which did not, it was evident that there was a defect in manufacture. The strength integrity just was not there.

    On the other side of this story, what Idiot stores liquids with valuable technical, electronic and mechanical devices? Oh wait that question has already been answered.

    Maybe he had just gotten the "Other uses for Coke" email that was going around the internet and got the idea from that

    People will sue each other over damn near anything ...... it just amazes me

    Two years ago you put the coke in the closet THEN you put your "inventions" in the same closet, and what ...... left them unchecked for that long???? You JUST noticed the can leaked?? I've personally never seen a coke can JUST leak for no reason. Were the cans stored upside down?? Did something perforate them?

    Some days I'm glad I live in Canada, we don't sue each other as much up here LOL, prolly cuz our settlements wouldn't be worth jack anyway hehehehehehehehehehehehe

    Ah yes...another far fetched lawsuit.

    Florida man sues Colorado company, Coke because of leaking can

    (Boulder, Colorado-AP) -- A Florida man has filed a 600-thousand
    dollar lawsuit against a Colorado company and Coke, claiming that a
    leaking Diet Coke can ruined his inventions.
    The suit named Broomfield-based Ball Corporation, maker of
    beverage containers, and Coca-Cola Enterprises.
    Arthur Kaufman says an unopened aluminum can -- made by Ball and
    filled with caffeine-free Diet Coke -- leaked in a closet two years
    ago.
    He says that badly damaged tens of thousands of dollars' worth
    of technological inventions.
    Both companies say the suit lacks merit. Coca-Cola Enterprises
    says Ball has been a reliable supplier for years.
    A jury trial is scheduled for January Fifth. A meeting with a
    mediator is set for next month.
