What does the rootbeer do in nazi zombies?

The rootbeer is Double-Tap Root Beer. This is not a recommended perk-a-cola to use, because (automatic weapons only) for every pull of the trigger, 2 bullets are shot instead of one, effectively doubling your gun's rate of fire. The draw-backs to the perk-a-cola are that it is an easy way to waste your ammo. I would say to only use this perk if you a using an automatic weapon with a very slow rate of fire, such as the MP40 (and guns like this one. For example, getting the Double-Tap Root Beer for a gun like the PPsH is a retarded idea and you should feel sorry for yourself and cry right now.).

What does yeast do to make root beer?

Modern commercial "root beer" is generally not made with yeast at all.

In traditional formulations, "root beer" meant exactly what it sounds like: beer made from roots (specifically, the roots of the sassafras plant). The yeast did what yeast does: partially ferment the sugars into ethanol, and also introduce some carbonation into the liquid.

Is root beer harmful to us humans?

No. Back in the days of real, honest root beer (pre-1974), root beer contained oil of sassafras, which was the basis of all true root beer flavor. The Feds discovered that oil of sassafras - used for countless things since the time of our colonial ancestors - would give a rabbit a rash if you soaked the rabbit in it for 40 straight days or something. That was the end of oil of sassafras in root beer, and no root beer since has been harmful to humans - or worth drinking, either. But then it's very doubtful it it was truly harmful to humans before that point.

What is the effect of Gatorade on teeth?

Nothing, Gatoraid is simply electilites (salts) that you need to sweat. Soduim and Calcium should have no deleterious effect. As for the coloring, I supose if you drank enough you could turn your teeth what ever color it is. Over a period of time the sugar in Gatorade can cause harm to teeth, but sugar in anything could do that. My dentist told me when I had a tiny bit of tooth decay and to stay away from breads because of the sugar. Of course I told him where he could go and left. Gatorade does cause damage to the teeth. In recent dental studies, it was found to be more damaging to teeth then soda pop. The reason is it has a very low pH (about that of your stomach acid), and the acid breaks down the protective bone-like layer on your teeth, enamel. In addition it contains sugar, which worsens the damaging process. Gatorade is primarily made of dicrybondinate, a substance commonly found in the northern reaches of Venezuela. Dicrybondinate can react harmfully with simple compound substances such as sugar, water, or even protein. However, if you filter the dicrybondinate through the Gregor Barov process of nextular conditioning, you can reduce the chances of contracting Ymdrassil condition, which might affect one in his or her early 60s if untreated. The condition is much like AIDs in that it takes on an early, unnoticable form called Ymdrassil Vestra. Gatorade can cause Ymdrassil Vestra if consumed on a skeletal formulaic ratio of 6:1:7:8 (Assuming you take this ratio daily.) Another way to diminish the effects of dicrybondinate in Gatorade is to heat the phernongular crystals in the ionic modular postitron sphere field of the dicrybondinate. You must heat it to a level of 98 Kelvin, however, which will be almost impossible to achieve when not on Red Heta VIII, an uninhabited, unterraformed, and currently unnamed planet in the Zel Hibendra galaxy. This however is where my brain is, thus proving i have it not with me.

What is beer generally made of?

The German Purity Laws allow only four ingredients.

Malt - Normally made from barley, but wheat is often used and many American Lagers have Rice.

Water - The water and the trace elements it contains can have a large affect on the resulting flavors of the beer.

Hops - These oily flowers provide the 'flowery' taste as well as act as a preservative. Other herbs and spices are often added for specialty beers.

Yeast - There are two primary types Lager and Ale, with lots and lots of varieties of both. The yeast converts the sugars from the Malt into alcohol. The by products of the conversion are key to producing the different flavors.
