General Order No. 11 was issued by General Ulysses S. Grant on Dec. 17, 1862 expelling all Jews from Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky.

Drop a can of Pepsi and a can of Diet Pepsi into a tub of water. Will they both float? Will they both sink? Will one sink and the other one float?
Perhaps, surprisingly, the diet Pepsi can will float while the Pepsi can will sink.

The Pepsi can weighs more because it uses corn syrup for its sweetener, while the Diet Pepsi uses a powdered chemical sweetener, which weighs less.
