Don't do drugs...
I just thought I'd give everyone here that advise.
Me and my friend each dropped three "yellow jackets" a while ago. We're pretty small guys, and I'm feeling sick. So, don't do drugs, m'kay...
You might say "Caffiene is not a drug." Yeah, well 900mgs of it all at once in a 120lb person is a drug. LOL, don't pay attention to my insane state of mind...
After just now starting to feel dizziness, I decide to do a search on google for the fatal dosage of caffiene (I heard somewhere it was around 40grams) but I wanted to make sure.
The overdosage is about 350mgs. I took 900mgs. This scared the crap outta me! But, before jumping to conclusions, I kept on reading the article and it said most overdoses do not lead to death. Even further, it said the average approximate amount of a fatal caffiene overdose is 10+ grams. *wipes sweat from brow*
Again, do not do drugs...lol.
"The minimum lethal dose of caffeine given intravenously was 3.2 grams.
While coffee drinkers often have caffeine blood concentration of about 1-10 mg/L, a concentration of 80 mg/L is considered lethal."
i drink about 1-4+ cups of tea a day... i am addicted, oh well...
Did you know they keep caffiene on hand in hospitals now to be given interveinously to patients who drink coffee and tea to prevent complications?
No-one, I did not know that...
Yanno, I love caffiene as much as the next programmer, but I seriously took way too much tonight. I tried going to bed a while ago, but I couldn't. I got up and felt very uncomfortable. I didn't know caffiene could be this uncomfortable, but it is...
I was/am pale and my pupils were/are dialated. This seriously isn't cool...
I hope this wears off soon :(
yeah... caffine is dangerous stuff, as anything like it, not a smart thing ODing on it, well then again neither is being addicted to it... i get a headache something terrible sometimes if i don't get enough caffine.
>yeah... caffine is dangerous stuff<
It really is. About 5 am this morning (it's 12:00pm right now) I woke up from like a 2 minute nap (I have no idea how I actually managed to sleep). I was still feeling the affects of the yellow jackets and I almost vomited. Everything was spinning and stuff. I swore to myself I wouldn't ever consume caffeine again.
I'm drinking a glass of soda as I post this message...
>>> i drink about 1-4+ cups of tea a day... i am addicted, oh well...
I'm on at least double that. Two before leaving home, 2-3 during the morning coding session, 2-3 in the afternoon session, then 1-2 after dinner. Big deal?

Glass of cold white wine as I post...
adrain, you are my caffine idol, i only wish i could consume that much an walk...
>Glass of cold white wine as I post...<
Mmm....I bet that'd hamper my post caffeine overdose-induced jitters. I love white wine....
Which tea has caffiene? Is it the American stuff? The British stuff? The Japanese stuff? The Chinese stuff? Which one?
My personal favourite is Russian Earl Grey, I have a big box of this at the office. At home we mostly use Assam, Darjeeling or Earl Grey. We also have a liking for gunpowder tea at the weekends, mid afternoon.
Now drinking Concha-y-Torro Sunrise Merlot 2000. I think the 1999 was a bit better, but generally would recomend Chilean wine.
What is "yellow jackets"?
>Which tea has caffiene?<
Just like coffee, most tea is naturally caffeinated. What nation it comes from doesn't make a difference.
But also, just like coffee, there are some types of naturally decaffeinated tea.
>What is "yellow jackets"?<
Basically energy pills. Each pill contains 300mg of caffeine alkaloids. 3 come in a package...
decaffinated tea is horrible.
I really like that rasberry flavored tea. Did you ever try that stuff?
