SNL (Saturday Night Live) postulated that Three Mile Island was a case of
Pepsi Syndrome - somebody spilled a Pepsi into one of the control computer
Soon after that, the US and CCCP (USSR) normalized relations enough to
exchange vodka for Pepsi, introducing Pepsi into Russia. Right after that
was Chernobyl.
Apple's ride onto the rocks was with a Pepsi executive at the helm.

Unrelated incidents? maybe
