    • For those of you who don’t know, in the late 1980’s Pepsi struck a deal with the USSR who’s economy was struggling in order to continue selling them Pepsi. Pepsi ended up with numerous subs, a cruiser, destroyer and frigate (worlds 6th largest navy) and the ussr got about 3 BILLION worth of Pepsi.

    • I mean, let's be honest. You're selling soda and the government offers you a war ship. Obviously your first thought is "wtf am I going to do with it? Imagine the maintenance and parking fees." But I think you'd be crazy NOT to take the war ship.
