I'm in the UK and had it tonight instead of alcohol cos i was driving. Its ok, Irn Bru and Coke tastes better though.

Its far too expensive also, it cost me £1.80 for a can in the pub and its £1.00 in most shops. Rip off!

Red Bull doesn’t seem to get me up in the morning but at night it wakes me right up making it a full night of reading and surfing the web. I am so tired when i get up i am like a zombie. when i was in studies i sleep all morning in class not even waking up for the bell and Red Bull was never there to help me with that. So the best thing to energies me is sleep a good 14 hours of it no joke

I think Red Bull is discusting. Its smells and tastes horrible!!

I've been a bartender for 4 years now and the most popular drink I made was Vodka and Redbull, I hated the smell so much it used to make me sick!!

Thats in Australia by the way!

:? Red bull isn't alchoholic

Or do you mean you will never drink <i>anything</i> :shock:

Red bulls great, but three cans maximum people, more than that and you start to get all twitchy and excitable. Trust me.

I had a look through the ingedients and there isn't anything there to warrant a health risk, but I guess it's the sort of thing people just assume is bad for you for no particular reason...

I am actually addicted to caffeine - I was told by the doctor to stop drinking caffein because of a batch of weekly (sometimes twice a week) 10 hour migraines.

I lasted for a day and a half and then started getting really bad withdrawal symptoms. It's pretty worrying to be honest....

Why say coke "can" be addictive? Caffeine is an addictive substance. Coke will always be addictive unless it is caffeine free. Makes you wonder why so many kids are allowed it :?

well I have no idea, but inspered by the last post and a complete lack of anything useful to do I did some research. From a bottle of Sainsbury's Diet Cola downstairs:

Quote:
contains typically 10mg of caffeine per 100ml


from a website talking about drinks like Red Bull:

Quote:
The typical energy drink provides about 80 mg of caffeine per can


@250ml a can of red bull:

32mg of caffeine per 100ml

Coffee aparently can be 90mg - 150 mg per cup (call a typical cup half pint = 500ml, and average 120 mg)

@500ml cup of coffee=24mg /100ml

so clearly coke does have a much lower amount of caffeine per volume. Although it wouldn't suprise me if some kids drank twice as much coke as adults drink coffee, putting them nearly on a par with caffeine intake.

Then again I used to drink coke by the 2ltr bottle and that is where my addiction came from :lol:

Right, now find something useful to do.....

"because im buzzing "

^^lol Sorry. But where I'm from, that means very high or drunk. I never heard of any Red Bull energy drink though. I might need to try some because I'm always so dang tired.

@miss bee
Yes it has killed people, but so would drinking anything with too much caffeine. There are many things that will kill you in excess, if people are dumb enough to take stuff to excess then they deserve what they get.

It's also not a good thing to mix with alcohol as both are diuretics.

As i said on a previous post you don't wanna be drinking more than 3 at a time, I did once - imagine tigger on speed.

I've never had red bull, we have enother similar drink here called 'V' i used to drink that a bit. I'm told people mix it with alcohol although they say you shouldnt http://abcnews.go.com/sections/wnt/Worl ... 10718.html

I think getting good amounts of sleep, regular exercise and a good diet is plenty enough to keep the body alert and ready when you need it ;)

I dont really like energy drinks, but I did find this little shot glass sized bottle in an asian food store one time, and it had about 6x the caffine of ANY energy drink. I sipped on it for about an hour, and didnt go to sleep for about 24 hours. It was insane, and I would never do it again!

..........well, maybe just once more..........


........or twice. :lol:

Today I was at the gym and I walked into the smoothie café and asked the guy what was good to take before a workout. He told to get this caffeine bs I don’t remember the name but I did look what was in it aprox 500mg of caffeine. I was looking around on google to find out hm caffeine is in redbull to compare. Anyway I don’t think drinking 5 or so redbulls would kill you :shock:, although I was shaking a little bit while working out :wink:

A yager bomb is a drink. I usually have 1 or 2 when I go out just because it keeps you up all night. If you want to try it, all you have to do is fill a glass with redbull and drop a shot of yager (the wholeshot glass) into the glass. Drink it down and your good. :-)

About more than a month ago my classmates and I had to study for a hardcore test that we didn't study for until the evening before the test. Me and another 2 guys bought a 24-pack of RB and finished them in 5 hours. Result is, I couldn't stop shaking during the test, lol. Still got a good grade though, amazingly.

It's amazing how people will say such things, with no evidence to back them up. Dispell the myth:

http://www.snopes.com/toxins/redbull.htm

The only genuine medical reason for concern over red bull is the caffeine content. There is not any particular $&^% in it :roll:

Yeah, monster tastes pretty good. I'd rather drink coffee though. It has the same or higher amount of caffeine and tastes much better. For the energy part, we all know it's all BS. The kind of energy that "energy drinks" give you will keep you stay up for a while but put you to sleep for about 24 hours the next day. That comes from personal experience, hehe.

I once went to a party celebrating a skydiving buddy of mine's birthday. I wasn't supposed to be really hugh (only like 40 people or so), but it bloomed out of control. The people who were actually invited brought their own drinks, but as people rolled in empty handed, drinks went fast...

So... the host ran out and bought a couple big things of vodka and a couple flats of red bull. I probably went through 4 cans worth... and jeebus. I thought my heart was gonna jump out of my chest... I couldn't close my eyes if I tried, I was twitchy... I literally thought I was going to have a heart attack.. my wife was in the same boat (after about the same amount).

I haven't touched the stuff since... It takes like crap (my opinion) anyway, so no big loss.

Does anyone know how to make a Slutty Red Head (heard it called Red Headed Slut too). THE SHOT... (mind out of the gutter boys!). I know it has Jagger in it, but I can't remember the rest. Those things are deadly. They taste a little like Kool-Aid, but are actually pure booze...
