Energy Drink Experiment

So blogger Joe the Peacock, a 31 year-old athlete and humor writer, decided to overdose on stimulant drinks and document the experiment. He combined several of his favorite energy drinks into one horrible concoction, which he drank. He said it was like drinking a "fruit-flavored battery" and went stranger from there.
Apparently, this stimulant binge gave him superhuman stamina, the shakes, megalomania, illogical cheerfulness, severe ADD, and chronic insomnia. Which is pretty impressive, considering that the active ingredients in these drinks are caffeine, nicotine, and lots of sugar. All cheaply available.
I've long said that if I could induce the hyperactivity that young children supposedly experience when given sugar in adults, that diet companies would break down my door hungry to sign billion dollar contracts with me, so I'm interested as to if Joe will repeat this, and if so, if he experiences the same effects. I am also curious as to the effects of these substances in older people (40-65), many of whom could benefit from hyperactivity.

I think they should also try modafinilo: it is Stimulating moderate of the SNC. She is one drugs synthetic, nonamphetamine, that promotes waking up and the watch state. Also an agent considers itself nootrópico, that is to say, its selective action on Brain would qualify a greater yield of the mental functions superiors: in particular, the memory and the attention.

The half-life (t1/2) of modafinilo is of 12 to 15 hours. The absorption is fast, with plasmáticas mergers principles between the 2 and 4 hours. The foods do not own effect on the bioavailability of modafinilo, but its absorption can be seen delayed in approximately one hour if it is taken along with the meals.

The bioavailability of tablets of modafinilo is approximately equal to the one of a watery suspension. Absolute oral bioavailability has not been determined due to the watery insolubility of modafinilo (smaller to 1mg/ml), which prevents its administration by endovenosa tract.
