You could drink 75.31 cups of Drip Coffee before croaking


I did half that every day my junior year of HS and noticed no real ill effects.

Until I gave it up for lent. Those first days weren't fun.

ETA: Also, I now want a coffee mug with Mr. Yuk on it.

591.50 cups of Green Tea + You = Death

After 305.95 cans of A&W Creme Soda, you'd be pushing up daisies

After 77.15 cups of Instant Coffee, you'd be pushing up daisies




I'm sure I've had about half of all that in my life time.

Diet Coke at Wally World was $3.88 per 12 pack of cans today.

Anyone got $120 they can loan me? I want to try this out.

I'm sure I had 10 times that in tech school alone. All told, I hould be dead a couple hundred times over.
Between the ages of 18 and 20, you could cut me and I'd bleed Mt. Dew.

In my sophomore year in college, a freshman panicked during finals and started ingesting coke, coffee and an entire box of No-Doz. Her heart started racing so hard they had to put in an IV and take her to the hospital. She missed finals.

What? You asked

Funny thing is, for most of the examples given, the amount of liquid consumed would
kill you long before the caffeine would due to dilution of your necessary electrolytes.

210 cans of Mt Dew. I only drink 2 a day if that.

It won't load for me..but I'm sitting here sipping my first (of two, usually) six-shot latte. I have to think the number of these to kill me wouldn't be over 30 or so...lol....
Link Posted: 8/23/2005 5:42:55 AM EDT
Dang, maybe I SHOULDN'T lose the 70 or so pounds I was trying for.
According to this I can drink 385.4 cans of Mountain Dew before I croak.
I hope all these numbers are all at once because I'm SURE i've had at least that many in my life time. I remember drinking MD out of glass bottles when I was 5 or so. AND IT WAS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!

I washed down a couple Vivarin with two cans of Full Throttle once. After about 20 minutes, I couldn't feel my fingertips.

We need to have background checks and waiting periods on caffeine. For the children, n' nat.

Whew!! I was wondering if 4 or 5 cans of Red Bull per day was a bad thing. Hell, I'm good to go now!

I have to wonder if that's the LD-50 of caffeine, or LD-100? I know that way before the 140 cups of coffee it said I'd have to drink to kill me, I'd be doing the funky chicken and wishing I was dead.

Edited...found that the LD-50 is 140-180 cups of coffee. Hard to consume that much. Nearly all fatalities are with mass quantities of caffeine pills. Some kid took an entire 90-pill bottle (200mg tabs), and died. No damn wonder...

I think it depends on the person BUT since I'm in Mom mode please be advised that Red Bulls can and have killed [They should be Banned, it's Bushes fault I know!]

My husband was drinking them pretty regularly and ended up spending a month in the hospital's coronary care unit and having open heart surgery.

Remember all things good [well most things] in moderation.

Mom mode off! Patty
