on crap coffee. Caffeine in other forms doesn't affect me, but if I have more than one cup of joe in a day, I get the jitters and nausea. But I'm throwing caution to the wind. I figure the rush will get me through the day faster.

I'm naturally pretty hyper...When I'm excited, like today, I'm like a cheerleader on crack. So caffeine rushes are not a good thing for me! I'm ok when I drink Coke, but give me a caramel frap from Starbucks & I'm bouncing off the walls!!!! Laughing

I'm entering an altered state of reality. My eyes fill itchy in the back, everything seems to be moving a little faster, and my stomach feels like a kettle on the stove.

I feel like I might projectile vomit. On the other hand, I'm being more productive at work right now than I have been since, I don't know, August.

My hands are shaking. Everything is in bullet time like the Matrix. I also think my threshold for pain me be much higher than normal right now. I'm sort of intrigued by the prospect of what might happen if I drink another cup, but on the other hand a little afraid, like certain vital laws of physics may stop applying to me. Anyone see that episode of Futurama, 300 Big Boys, where Fry has 300 cups of coffee in a row?

Please don't drink any more coffee...Sounds like you're about to have a heart attack!

Yeah, I'll pass on the coffee. Doing the pain test of pinching myself:

Yes, I'm significantly "numbed."

The first time I had caffeine overdose was when a friend and I were driving home from Virginia Beach after leaving there at midnight. I was driving a 4-speed at the time and my friend couldn't drive a manual. We stopped at every rest stop for coffee so I could stay awake. (I should mention I was not a regular coffee drinker at that time.) Stay awake I did...for like the next 36 hours! Shocked

Have fun, Cy.

This should wear off around 3 or 4.

I drink at least a gallon of coffee a day... no exaggeration...

Most of it is garbage gutter water type chit... but I have at least 2 or 3 GOOD cups... either at home or from my little device in my office

I am truly addicted to, of all things, McDonald's coffee. Mostly because it's relatively convenient. But secondly, because it's a habit now.

When I'm not drinking junk at work or an occasional quality cup at home with company, I'm a tea drinker. I don't get that unpleasant buzz from tea for some reason so I try to stick to it. But every now and then I need to coffee up for the positive effect or productiveness. Got some stuff that has to be done before holiday, so I had to take the hit. Its like I can activate my superpowers but at the expense of losing a year or two of mileage off my heart in a day.

Well, I didn't help my case by drinking 20 oz of coke over lunch, but my feeling of lurking anxiety based in an unfounded but nevertheless bizarrely certain understanding that at any moment, reality would without warning open up and swallow me into the abyss, has mercifully subsided, and now I just feel like I rolled down a steep hill in a trash can about three times in a row, minus the smell of sweat, fear, and rot.

Not sure if I threw the right amount of commas in there to make that coherent.
