Yeah.... I was gonna say sweet iced tea is what I drink for energy.

If I want a buzz I'll have a couple beers . Too many people OD-ing on these spiked drinks.

Children in the future are gonna need something to give them a boost out of bed in the mornings.

I like Red Bull the most. It's not to sweet and I kind of liked that slightly bitter taste. But at $2.50 and up a can it's a bit pricey.

So I tried Bacchus X with Ginseng, Taurine, Guarana, Royal Jelly and B vitamins at Asian stores. Only 79 cents for 3.3 oz, so I down a two of them and it is a pretty decent pick me up. Not too much caffeine.

Of course Red Bull, Monster, Rockstar and all the others are unhealthy when abused. There have been many deaths associated with energy drinks, and caffeine overdoses.

If you read further, often you find out that the person had consumed more than one energy drink, along with partying the night before, hanging out on the beach getting dehydrated, and maybe mixing energy drinks with alcohol.

There are definitely people addicted to these drinks, they are not really thinking things through. They should be used infrequently, not while drinking or partying, or as a substitute for sleep long term. They're good for those times when you have to finish a long week at work, or are dead tired and have to drive for 3 hours. 1-3 times a month max.

There's a reason that the inventor of Red Bull is a rich man. The stuff works. It's a mild form of over the counter speed that is effective and safe when used as intended. Red bull might be an acquired taste, but so is coffee, caviar, tobacco, and beer!

A year and a half ago, I went to the ER with a serious nose bleed. ER doctor told me they were going to shoot a cocaine concoction into my sinus to stop the bleeding. The doctor said, "Don't worry, you won't get high."

Really? It's not as if there's anything else to do there.
