hey that is pretty useful, I really like discoveries like this. Last one I heard about was how you can use your head as a transmitter (let me explain)
If you have a central locking system for you car with a key fob to activate/de-activate the central locking you will know that it will only work a certain distance from the car. however, you can increase the distancefrom which you can unlock you car by activating the fob whilst it is pressed against your head..
sounds stupid..? try it out.

Thinking back on the "IOUs" to those who graciously replied.
I just talked to a chemist. He told me,
"Look, you want to stay awake? Just eat the instant coffee!"
Me, "That works?"
Chemist, "Damn right, the awful taste in your mouth will keep you awake for a long time!"

Looking forward to finding at more info on why grapefruit juice intensifies the caffeine affect.
Previous research has found that naringin, found in grapefruit, interferes with enzymatic activity in the intestines thus slowing the breakdown of certain drugs and resulting in higher blood levels of the drug. A number of drugs that are known to be affected by the naringin in grapefruit include calcium channel blockers, estrogen, sedatives, and medications for high blood pressure, allergies, AIDS, and cholesterol-lowering drugs. Consuming grapefruit or grapefruit juice may also extend caffeine levels and effects of caffeine.
