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.
