It's all about the Dr Pepper.
2002-12-23 3:28:22 AM  
The real question is how much caffine does the Nectar of the Gods (a.k.a Vanilla Coke) have?
2002-12-23 3:29:54 AM  
What's this new stuff called "Bawls" I keep hearing about?
2002-12-23 3:32:17 AM  
pfeh. Sundrop owns Mr. Pibb. Anyone else feel the power of Sundrop?

i didnt know that about pepsi one... no wonder i keep drinking it.
2002-12-23 3:34:00 AM  
Red Bull. Yay. The breakfast of champions. Two cans = 500% RDA of vitamin B12. Whatever the fark that is. I think I'll be hitting 1000% by the end of the day. butit ceps meh elthy 'n fitt!
2002-12-23 3:35:49 AM  
AfriCola? Wth is that?
2002-12-23 3:36:24 AM  


Vitamin B12 : What is it?
Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is important to good health. It helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells, and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all cells (1-4). Vitamin B12 is bound to the protein in food. Hydrochloric acid in the stomach releases B12 from protein during digestion. Once released, B12 combines with a substance called intrinsic factor (IF) before it is absorbed into the bloodstream.

Strong black coffee. Keep it simple and you can't go wrong.

Anyone ever have the Canada Dry cola? Is it GINGER as well?

Anyone remember the 7up cola called 7up Gold? That was the best cola ever.
2002-12-23 3:38:34 AM  
How much does the $tarbucks Doubleshot have in it? That almost gets me jittery, and it takes a lot of caffeine to affect me. I'm building up a resistance to it, unfortunately.

A friend of mine, as far as I know, has some pure caffeine at home. (Ah, I love my friends...) He says it tastes terrible. I believe him. I still want to see for myself, though, I'm stupid like that.

[image from too old to be available]
It's just another cola. Bleah.
2002-12-23 3:38:56 AM  
i am a caffiene fiend. love the java. love the coca cola.

WHAT IS THIS AFRI-COLA STUFF? I've never heard of it!

Anyone? Anyone? Beuller? Beuller?
2002-12-23 3:39:06 AM  
Bah. They took something that was fun (drinking soda-pop), and turned it into some boring science thing :(
2002-12-23 3:41:18 AM  
It gives the wing to deep-red Bull you!
2002-12-23 3:41:34 AM  
Me thinks the submitter drank too much caffeine.
2002-12-23 3:41:43 AM  
Come to think of it, that image is ... disturbing.
Nuns ... suggestively shaped cola bottles ...

methinks their blissful look doth not come from the drink

methinks I should lay off the unusual pr0n for a bit ...
2002-12-23 3:42:32 AM  
Is the "PLUG" tag completely useless now?
2002-12-23 3:43:34 AM  
See, what I do is make a pot of regular coffee and then pour it into my espresso machine to make coffee-espresso.
I have a seatbelt on my office chair to keep me from jittering out of it.
2002-12-23 3:44:03 AM  
EnergyDrain - that was rhetoric! If I'd really wanted to know , I could have googled it for myself, thank you very much.

2002-12-23 3:45:15 AM  
I know. But I can't sleep. And I had nothing better to do.
2002-12-23 3:50:50 AM  
For those of you going "WTF?" here's the link to their site:

2002-12-23 3:53:50 AM  
Afri-cola is good, but only when served very cold. It has a slightly bitter taste compared to other colas. Go for the Bawls; it's more readily available and it tastes like 7-up. Afri-cola is available through
2002-12-23 3:57:31 AM  
By the way, the German slogan on a bottle of Afri-cola loosely translates (according to Babelfish) as "No pleasure without danger."

2002-12-23 4:05:05 AM  
Jeez, no wonder my mom is addicted to Pepsi...
2002-12-23 4:10:59 AM  
I found a place with answers to most of your questions. The site also has some more numbers for you, if you're into that sort of thing.
2002-12-23 4:11:55 AM  
Does the Doubleshot need to be drank super-cold? Cause I had one and it was pretty nasty. And yes, I usually love espresso drinks.
2002-12-23 4:19:09 AM  

Seriously, that stuff is the best.

2002-12-23 4:22:49 AM  
I wanna know how much caffeine is in a single cup of Lebanese coffee, that stuff is insane, no wonder they are all nutcases over there in the middle east, its like 90% caffeine. Has anyone else ever tried it??????
2002-12-23 4:31:14 AM  
Why are there more posts here than in the Beer thread?

Oh wait... I forgot to post in the Beer thread .. Doh!
2002-12-23 4:31:23 AM  
Bawls is some good stuff, but is not readily available in stores. 7up has a new drink which is caffinated, the label is an upside down 7up label. The stuff is like liquid crack.
2002-12-23 4:38:23 AM  
Does anyone remember OK Soda?

Once they put a sheet of sticker things in the Willamette Week, each sticker had something weird written on the back. There was a rumor that some of the sheets had been tainted with LSD.

And every can you bought had a code on the inside bottom of the can, and you called the 800-number, entered the code, and got some weird-ass message. My favorite was the birdcalls.

I buy my beans from these

I drive over 100 miles to get their beans. A friend in Australia has asked me to bring him some.

Brewed in a French Press, with ferociously boiling water, served with two tablespoons of clover honey, and a dash of half-n-half.....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm-boy howdy!!!

I tried detoxing from coffee once, I lasted a month, got detoxed...then fell off the wagon. That first cup,prepared as above, was what the first shot of heroin must be like!!
2002-12-23 4:47:44 AM  

Yeah, Arabs like their coffee like I like my women: hot, black, and full of energy.
2002-12-23 4:51:12 AM  
We SoCal'ers don't have the opportunity to taste Mr. PiBB. Poo.
2002-12-23 4:57:07 AM  
I don't know about you guys, but getting through finals for me consistes of ripped fuel and coffee. It turns out the human body can go for about 3 and a half days without sleep and functione enough to write semi coherent papers...
2002-12-23 5:02:23 AM  
Jeezus Andonbray you would almost need a five-point racing harness on you chair to keep you securely strpped in after that.
*majik runs down the hall to brew a pot of coffee and click on the expresso machine*
2002-12-23 5:03:47 AM  
Damnit I need a jolt of the afri-cola to correct my un 1337 spelling of "strapped".
2002-12-23 5:09:44 AM  
What the-fark-Afri-cola?
2002-12-23 5:18:04 AM  
Man, that beats my four cup strong black tea with lemon and sugar. No wonder I can't sleep. Oh well, if you can't sleep, fark, and if you can't fark,

If you're gonna be awake, be happy.
2002-12-23 5:26:15 AM  
Yeah, but all these drinks take a back seat to a couple of lines of quality speed.
2002-12-23 5:36:36 AM  
damn i wish i was as sensative to caffene as you lot, i can drink 2 cans of red bull and still fall asleep, coffee does nothing for me , hell even nodoze doesnt really work for me
2002-12-23 5:41:59 AM  
Caffiene is outlawed in parts of Thailand because its a precursor to meth???? Ok lets think about this. Out of a 1000 US residents, how many us meth. 1, maybe 2? I'm including old people here. How many use caffiene? 998? And one of the other two have bad heart probelms. Poor poor Thai people, with no caffiene.
2002-12-23 5:43:48 AM  
my asshole hurts
2002-12-23 6:01:13 AM  
no0o0o0o0o! not this page again
i did my assignment on caffeine
6 weeks of programming hell!!
2002-12-23 6:01:59 AM  
SelbyH8crime - remove the cola bottle for instant relief.

(sorry ... I really REALLY gotta lay off that weird pr0n ... )
2002-12-23 6:26:59 AM  
I guess you learn something every day.

I've actually seen Afri-Cola before, though I don't recall where. I DO remember that neither my friends or I would touch it. It just looked way too much like some sort of drink bottled by a fly-by-night two bit soda company somewhere way out in the ass of Africa. You know, in some piss-poor nation with 1 export and no health laws.

Turns out it's made in Germany and the company was founded before 1900.

Not that that's really changed my mind about it.
2002-12-23 6:45:43 AM  

Man....that's not true,me being a SoCaler, I've had it enough at burger stands and restaurants to know it's just hidden, you gotta find it, unlike pepsi and coke in your face.

Just can't find it in a bottle or can.
