My freshman year of college, when I did the programming projects, I would drink coca cola and swallow a ginseng pill. I typically only did this if it
was due by midnight, or if I had some serious studying to do for a test the next day.
I stopped doing that in my second year because I moved in with a sister and her boyfriend, and I couldn't even get dialup internet access, so I had
to do those programming projects at school until the midnight deadline.
In my junior year I started frequenting a particular coffee shop, and drinking maybe two highly cafeinated "tea shakes" (I didn't think they were
that heavy on the caffeine until about 2 years later). Then years later, it felt like my heart was skipping beats or something like that. That turned
out to be an alien psychic in my head (I just couldn't hear it in there at the time and didn't notice anyone chasing me around back then).
But that's not the point I'm trying to make. The point that I want to make is that it is certainly *very* hazardous to your health to drink these
things. I get my information from this news article:
So can it kill you? Certainly.
If you're up late working on programming projects, then if you're legal age, I would suggest liquor instead.
I have been drinking tons of liquor every night since the last half of 2007. That alien psychic or whatever it is up in my head, was keeping me wide
awake, and I was going to die of sleep deprivation easily. The only thing that gets me to sleep legally these days is tons of liquor each night.
Otherwise I simply don't sleep. No doctor can help, the cops just say "don't know what you're talking about" and wanna taser you, and your family
kicks you out the door.
In my senior year of college, I did programming projects completely busted on liquor, and it worked! I made the engineering dean's list both
semesters. These days I obviously drink the stuff alot more, and have been doing so for a much longer time, so it's obviously pretty safe.
Well, considering I'm still alive that is. I'd imagine I should be dead about now.
