Radiant Orange Soda

Posted by hornlo on August 1st, 2009 filed in Daily-Grind, humor

Usually I drink only coffee — lots and lots of coffee. Recently, however, I’ve been on a Sunkist orange soda binge. I don’t know why; maybe it’s the caffeine, or the unique taste, but I suspect that it’s as much due to the color as anything else.

Every time I look at a glass of Sunkist I imagine that that eerie glow is what a nuclear reactor would look like if Cherenkov radiation caused an orange glow instead of blue.
