Death By Caffeine

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on December 28, 2010

The facebook friend posted the cheerful news that 179 cups of brewed coffee would kill him. PG was fascinated by the concept of caffienating himself to death (headed to an early coffice). A doubleclick on Death by Caffeine put him closer to his fate.

PG was not the first person to see this test. It has been tweeted 668 times, with 40k on the f-like chart. It has tabs for USA, NZ & Australia, and UK & Europe. Asia and Africa are not important . The field below says “pick your poison”, you enter your weight, and click on the tab which says “kill me”.

The “pick your poison” has an impressive selection. Starting with “180” and ending with “Zun Energy Drink”, this is a selection to wake up the most jaded of amphetimites. Arizona caution energy shot, bawls geek beer, cougar energy double shot, foosh energy mints, venom mojave rattler, and slim fast cappucino delight shake all vie to send to excessive user on a one way trip to the pearly gates, presumably without a rocket. To a detoxed fuddy duddy like PG, this is heady stuff. (NZ & Australia have the options of Big Cock and Mother. UK & Europe balance matters with Pussy Energy Drink.)

With so many ways to die, one should think of taste and economy. ( What is the plumbing like in the pearly gate waiting room?)The first choice for PG is caffeinated maple bacon lollipop. 170.62 Caffeinated Maple Bacon Lollipop + You = Death. Next, native Atlantan PG needs to check out coca cola classic Gulp down 395.65 cans of Coca-Cola Classic and you’re history. Finally, for something that PG drinks everyday, it is iced tea . ( PG uses the cheap stuff sold at Kroger. Lipton and Nestea may have different results.) 290.43 cups of Iced Tea + You = Death.

The terminal dosage quotient is a feature of energy fiend . EF appears to be sponsored by the energy drink (e.d.) industry. Press release spawned posts for new drinks are listed on the left side of the home page. On the right are ads. You can Make Money! with energy mints! If you drink water, you are not mandrating. There is also a test for Caffeine Addiction.

The Addiction quiz is sponsored by Ammo Energy shot…no jitters, no crash, no kidding. There is a picture of a squirell, standing on his hind legs, drinking coca cola with a straw. The quiz is 15 yes/no questions, like “Do you have a hard time remembering the last time your favorite soda gave you a buzz?”or “Do you have a special refrigerator specifically for energy drinks?” The results … “Congratulations – you have completed Addiction Diagnosis. You scored 0 out of 16. Your performance have been rated as ‘Failed'”

Pictures for tonight’s amusement are from ” The Special Collections and Archives,Georgia State University Library” .
