    Sad; but not new news.
    I'm wondering why there isn't a drink-in-moderation warning or something of the sort on those things.

    There is in Canada, it flat out says don't drink more than two a day.

    I was surprised a sensible limit is as small as that. God knows Ellis must have a hyperfunctioning PKD liver.

    True, people are getting too much confort, it's time they think for themselves a little. This reminds me of the two idiots who got hit by a car and died because they crossed the street while listening to Ipods. Do Ipods need to come with "LOOK AT BOTH SIDES, YOU CUNT"?

    Intravenously.

    Just because it says two doesn't mean you have to stop there. I think that number is based on a complete lack of caffeine tolerance. Yesterday alone I had 5 energy drinks and two lattes, caffeine good.

    I can't fucking stand the taste of energy drinks. I merely tolerate coffee because i have to keep up with the other rats in this awful race.

    One of my friends was waaaaaay overweight. 6'5" and well past 300lbs. Then he quit eating fast food, kept drinking energy drinks like water, lost a grip of weight and his heart freaked out. Arm went numb and everything.

    The article says he had an underlying heart problem. He was at the end of a supermarket night shift. If I had to spend nights in Asda, my heart would probably die of grief. Saying that 'the quantity of caffeine consumed on this occasion may have been a contributing factor' does not equate to 'people who drink red bull are at risk of dropping dead'. And it's in the telegraph, which exists solely to give retired colonels in Tunbridge Wells outrage-induced hard ons.
