So, what's the difference between them, then?edit on 16-11-2010 by LadySkadi because: (no reason given)
Good news to all coffee lovers out there. We were taught to avoid drinking caffeinated drinks to avoid diseases, and that it is unhealthy if done in excess. While it is still advisable not to drink coffee in excess, science has recently discovered some very healthy effects of caffeine on the liver.
Though it is not often that one finds heath benefits in coffee, the effects of caffeine on the liver may change our minds. There were about 6,000 people who were at risk for developing diseases that affects the liver. Some from hepatitis, obesity, excessive drinking and other elements that are widely known to cause liver malfunction; during the research, the people were ask how much tea, coffee or any caffeinated sodas they consume.
Studies show that the people who drank more caffeinated drinks were the people less likely to develop a disease in the liver. It was an interesting result. But this study is not the end-all and be-all of things. The effects of caffeine on the liver have not yet been signed, sealed and delivered by researchers yet. So do not go around drinking every coffee cup you find. Excessive caffeine or excessive anything for that matter, is bad for your health. Just drink caffeine regularly and do not think too much of it. And be open to future research about caffeine's effects on us.

An 18 year old fighting for his life, the life of the man next to him, and the lives of all us Americans is defiantly a man. He has a great responsibility only a man can partake in. A 20 year old sitting in the dorm room with his 19 year old girlfriend shotgunning Four Lokos... They're defiantly kids.

Considering some coffee stouts contain as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, the same amount in this four loco crap (even more than if you consider volume served over volume package) then all we have here is more government hypocrisy and inconsistent application of the law.
Yay, government. # up some more please.
