    Until 1903, Coca Cola contained nine milligrams of cocaine, per glass.

    If you miss the Lithium just move to Santa Fe, because of the huge veins of lapidolite underground the ground water is loaded with it!

    Didn’t aspirin originally contain opium?

    I don’t believe so, but I do have my chemistry textbook from Penn State, which has a picture of an ad from the turn of the 20th century that touted Bayer Aspirin® (yes, it was still a registered trademark at that time) and Bayer Heroin side-by-side.

    Aren’t 7-Up and Sprite still considered effective hangover treatments today?

    Best treatment is not to get in that condition in to begin with.

    Amazing about the echidna. I thought all mammals had nipples.

    It’s still a pretty fair hangover cure.

    Back in my drinking days,thank God there over, I would come home and open a 7up and let it sit all night to go flat, when I got up for work it was pure sugar. Seemed to work!!

    The atomic weight of Lithium is just under 7. I wonder if that’s where the name came from….

    The Echidna is a Monotreme.
    .
    The Wikipedia article calls them mammals, but, their mammary glands don’t have deffinded nipples.
    Monotremes lay eggs instead of giving live birth.
    .
    The Duck Billed Platypus is the only other Monotreme in existence.

    Also from Wikipedia:
    Monotremes (from the Greek μονός monos “single” + τρῆμα trema “hole”, referring to the cloaca) are mammals that lay eggs (Prototheria) instead of giving birth to live young like marsupials (Metatheria) and placental mammals (Eutheria). The only surviving examples of monotremes are all indigenous to Australia and New Guinea, although there is evidence that they were once more widespread. Among living mammals they include the platypus and four species of echidnas (or spiny anteaters); there is debate regarding monotreme taxonomy.
