Let me start this thread by prefacing I'm not a coffee drinker. I get my caffeine by consuming chocolate, pop, or tea, of which none is over-abundant or habitual.
So, this afternoon I took a mid-day break for a pick-me-up. I decided to try one of those new McDonald's iced coffee drinks that I've seen advertised. I figured I'd like it since they have flavor options (I chose hazelnut) and it would be laden w/ creamy sugar and thereby "dilute" the caffeine. Boy was I wrong! I only drank 1/4 of it (smallest size they offer) and was all a-jitter!! Yikes! Don't like that feeling.
I was telling my honey about this and he showed me this website: http://www.energyfiend.com/death-by-caffeine/
This cracks me up! Enter your quaff of choice and your weight and it calculates how many cans/bottles etc.. you would need to consume to give up the ghost. Of course, its surely not too realistic, as you'd likely die from some other cause, before the caffeine, e.g. simply consuming the sheer volume of liquid. In any event, give it a whirl. It's a good laugh!
