Do you know why it is called Coca-Cola

The cocaine was derived from the Coca leaf and the caffeine from Cola, not leading to the name Coca Cola. I just thought that was absolutely fascinating

So naturally, we planned to figure out what the 40 new engineers were going to show these guys. And we were working very late. And as it would be, someone mentioned in the discussion was around 12:00 at night. Is who the h*** decided that they had to take the Coke out of Coke? And how did they do it? It was about an hour's conversation full of a good laugh. Bye
