We are almost 66% of the way through the year 2010. It’ll be a time known for oil spills, leaked documents, Canadian Olympics and of course the movie Vampire’s Suck. But no one will wish to remember these colossal failures of the year:
Coke Switches to original Cocaine recipe
Feeling pressure from Pepsi and Dr Pepper, who both starting distributing their original recipes with real sugar, Coke decided to also start making their original flavor.

Millions tuned into ABC to watch how Lost would end. What they found was confusing…. have a look:
California Typo keeps Tay Zonday from Getting Married

The reason? A typo that accidentally stated that it was Tay Marriage that was illegal. The result was men can mary men, women can mary women, but Youtube has-been Tay Zonday can’t mary anyone.
Zonday of course is mad about this, but after watching this video, perhaps it is for the best:
