Members of the Colombian Navy stand guard on top of a seized submarine built by drug smugglers in Timbiqui, department of Cauca, February 14, 2011. Colombian authorities said the submersible craft was to be used to transport 8 tons of cocaine illegally into Mexico.

Reported in the Colombian paper El Tiempo here:

The sub presents the use of advanced technology seen for the first time in this country, and its construction must have cost the narcotraffickers more than 4,000 million pesos, according to the Naval police of the Pacific.

There’s a related MSNBC article here.

More photos below, because who can get enough of a hundred-foot-long homemade cocaine sub?

Coca-Cola's Secret Recipe Finally Revealed

The secret recipe of Coke has been hidden and locked down for 125 years. But apparently, not anymore

The recipe:
Fluid extract of Coca: 3 drams USP
Citric acid: 3 oz
Caffeine: 1 oz
Sugar: 30 (unclear quantity)
Water: 2.5 gal
Lime juice: 2 pints, 1 quart
Vanilla: 1 oz
Caramel: 1.5 oz or more for color

The secret 7X flavor (use 2 oz of flavor to 5 gals syrup):
Alcohol: 8 oz
Orange oil: 20 drops
Lemon oil: 30 drops
Nutmeg oil: 10 drops
Coriander: 5 drops
Neroli: 10 drops
Cinnamon: 10 drops

Lithium-ion batteries!

• Do not let it run out completely all the time. Full discharge puts a lot of strain on the battery
• Do not keep a Li-ion battery fully charged all the time, either. If you don’t use your battery it might suffer from capacity loss
• Keep your battery in cooler temperatures. Hot hot heat is not good for it
• If you’re gonna store your battery, leave 40%-50% charge in and store it in a cool place (i.e. fridge).

I know, it’s hard to break old habits (I leave my laptop plugged in far too often), but taking care of your battery means better, longer juice.

I love this country more and more everytime I found things like this. We can say that we are, at least, internet free.
