Posted:I'm feeling really ill (damn summer colds) so my mom has been nice enough to ferry cups of coffee from the kitchen to my room. Over the course of the past hour or so I've had 6 (counting the mugs stacked around my bed), the only problem is... I can't sit still. I have the worst caffiene shakes ever. Think the bit in the Exorcist where the girl is bouncing around on the bed. I'm like that but without the demon. I actually look like this eek at the moment. Its so much fun!

For my birthday a week ago I got a nice shiney coffee maker (yay for me) which makes espresso coffee and my old one made filter coffee... 4 shots of espresso fills an ordinary coffee mug and my mom got the two machines confused and has been feeding me espresso instead of filter so with my dodgy math I've had 24 shots of espresso. I'm powering my laptop using wires attached to my nipples!!!

Go buy some Green or White tea from Holland and Barratt.

Posted:You can apparently die from a caffiene OD and 6 normal cups of coffee can be fatal but i always have about that much on any normal occasion. caffiene rushes are soooo fun. the only bad bitr is being overtly paranoid. We can see you. worried? hee hee. see what i mean?

I had a serious caffiene rush this one time thar i went up to london. i was giggling the whole way there at nothing. what was worse was the fact that it was at 6 in the morning. people hated me a lot after that.

have fun! alchohol is a depressant and might cancel out the effects of a stimulant (thatys why i dont understand irish coffee :S) so its an excuse to drink biggrin

Arent i great ?!

(in case you hadnt noticed; i have been drinking the brown java too!!) eek

Posted:think we could detect that creaturesfarley wink



and yes, the recommended amount of coffee we should intake is no more than 3 cups a day, apparently not 24 espresso's. tut tut



caffine will only keep you ill for longer as your body is intent on removing all the toxins you keep putting into it, rather than tacking the actual disease. so stop drinking the dirty brown!!!

Posted:Diuretic.

I'm sure drinking water would flush one of toxins more efficiently than coffee.

Posted:Caffeine OD? Try a can of coke with a few spoons of coffee granules dissolved in it. And maybe some sugar, just to take the edge off the bitterness. Then listen to pumping music and do something that gets your pulse racing, like, er, play Soul Calibre.

Then see if you can actually sit completely still without fidgeting, juddering, or talking rubbish at nobody in particular.

I found I couldn't even keep my head and eyes facing the monitor for 10 seconds.

Waaaargh! I'm getting pumped just thinking about it!

Posted:You can die from drinking too much water. But you can get an eupohric high trying.

Apparently if you attain the right balance of lots and lots of water versus brain chemicals then you (allegedly) reach a state of nirvana. But get it wrong - the balance is finer than fine - and all your cells explode and you die horribly.

personally I'll stick to 2 or 3 cups of coffee a day and miss the fun of that thank you tongue wink
