Step 4: Make cocoa

Set the burner on the base and fill the cup with water then put in cocoa mix start the fire. Use the fire to stay warm along with the cocoa to keep your inside warm.

just wondering where does the hobo plug in his dremel? I'm glad to know that is one of the essential tools to pack in my raggedy overcoat pocket.
tie a rock to a piece of metal wire and throw it over a train power line. one prong of a dremel to that line and the other end of the dremel to ground.
Advantage is that yr dremel goes much faster
Be creative :-)

Hey, this is pretty cool! What doesn't Dr Pepper taste like. They don't sell it in Australia.
They sell it at the foodworks in st lucia (near the university of queensland)

It taste like a cross between root beer and pepsi

Oh... Ok.

Disgusting!
disgusting lol
no, that's not disgusting, try what I've seen a few people do before, I'm not sure what it's called anymore. take every sort of soda you can imagine and put a little of each in your glass and try that. now I won't say it doesn't have a certain appeal, but mostly I like mine one at a time. LOL teenagers like to try it.
Tastes nothing like root beer and Pepsi. It tastes like awesome.

Well what does awesome taste like?
Pretty frickin' good.

To me awesome tastes like good old Fanta (or Sunkist (or orange crush))
Oh damn dude!!!! I LOVE ORANGE CRUSH! My all time favorite!!! They sell them 99 cents here in Colorado for a 16 oz (Yay, I revived a 3 year old comment!)
Believe in the Awesome and you will taste the Awesome.

Make sense? Probably not.

=D
is that scatman john!?
he is slightly wierd but great
as an adaption of what you said ski dude believe in awesome and you will hear awesome
Sure is Scatman John!
Ok to recap 

So Awesome tastes like awesome, if you believe in awesome, which in turn may taste like Dr.Pepper, which may taste like dark cherry cola, bitter pepsi and cola with extra sugar to be sweet, good ol'fanta (or sunkist(or orange crush)) or root beer and pepsi

Dr.Pepper tastes like slightly bitter coke and pepsi with sugar.
I dont know what it is but it says it has 23 flavors. But the best part about dr. pepper is even after its diluted by ice it still tastes good
Dr. pepper tastes like dark cherry soda.
