    Sweet Sweet Caffeine

    So yesterday I woke up with and had a headache most of the day. Just a mild annoying type one. I thought I was dehydrated so I drank plenty of water but it didn't really go away.
    This morning I woke up and again I had a headache. So I'm trying to figure out why, dehydrated? no, problem with glasses? no, get hit on the head? not that I can remember. Finally it dawns on me. I haven't had any caffinee since Friday morning. Well luckly I have a final today and I needed to come to school early to finish up some work for chem. First thing I do is grab a Mt Dew and drink half of it. Ah sweet caffeine cured my headache.

    Yes I know the headache was due to withdrawl but dang it I'm never gonna go through that again.

    Caffeine. Caffinee withdrawl results in death after 20 minutes.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    You know what is sad? When Stack mentioned the spelling mistake I looked it up and it gave me the chemical formula of C8H10N4O2 and I immediatly started to think of its molecular shape...

    I prefer the pretty 3d pictures like this one http://www.erowid.org/chemicals/caff...hemistry.shtml

    Its kinda interesting thats its planar save the hydrogens attached to the tetrahydrial carbons

    Wow thats a small angle between the C-N=C. Hmm if I can get back into the chem computer lab this week I'll use their program and model this one out. That bond has to be causing some major stress.

    Ah. Well, yeah. I did a google search and came up with that 2D thing in like 15 seconds. Maybe a bit more time would have helped turn up a 3D pretty one.

    Indeed. It's not as bad as parents make it sound.

    I used to have to kick the caffeine addiction after every semester. Took me about 3 or 4 days usually with some pretty bad headaches. I don't drink much soda anymore and I only rarely have some sort of coffee, and it's nice. I'm not dependent on something to keep my body going and I honestly feel more "with it". Then again, I'm eating better and getting random exercise, so that could be some of it too.

    You mean like alchol intoxication? Who would have guessed

    And ober I've quit caffeine before after getting hooked. I remember how much it sucks but I do love my caffeine. I guess if I ever really get serious about getting back into shape I'll drop sodas.

    This is one example of where proper grammar would have prevented me from reading this statement 5 times before finally understanding it.
    Hmm
