in reply to My preferred source of caffeine is...

Kahlua has caffeine, right? I switched to Kahlua during the heat of summer because I can drink it iced. Unfortunately, I think I'm developing a caffeine allergy with some weird symptoms. After 5 or 6 cups, I have trouble walking, but I'm a great dancer.

OK, disregard the above paragraph. Seriously, it's cafe con leche for me. Two years of working in a coffee shop tore my stomach up, so no more strong drinks for me. I need something that's gentle on my tummy.

    Yes, but so does Mountain Dew + Vodka.

    send money to your kernel via the boot loader.. This and more wisdom available from Markov Hardburn.

      a few years ago, my roommates and I would add dew instead of water to the coffee pot. tasted okay, but like you said, who really drinks coffee 'because they LOVE the taste' -- not me (take away coke and we might have a problem) The Dew+Drip coffee just tasted a little burnt for obvious reasons.

    Doesn't the alcohol sort of cancel out the caffiene? I guess it has loads of sugar, but that just helps to make you drunk and possibly tired.
    Although I knew a guy who liked to drink whiskey when he programmed, I don't know if that helped him much though. He nick-named himself null-pointer-exception boy.

      I was joking about the Kahlua part. In real life I can't stand Kahlua. I think coffee should taste like coffee and alcohol should taste like alcohol, and never the twain shall meet. When I drink alcohol, it's Pernod or nothing.

        I really like Kahlua, especially in the summer as an ice-cold White Russian. Or if I don't want something cold, hot milk with Kahlua is yummy too.
        Pernod? You should really try Abisinthe 72 Amer .. if the link is broken, you can search for it. I've ordered about a dozen bottles from that vendor, fast shipping and fair prices.


        lol, Pernod is liqueur, like Kahlua, not alcohol (yes, liqueur contains alcohol).
