Recent update from Britton, the bar owner -
Britton said in a telephone interview Tuesday that he brewed up a new batch of "The F Word" last Friday. By then, the dispute was already drawing attention on social media, and the beer sold out in three hours.
He's contemplating making more, based on the calls, emails and Facebook messages of support he said he's received from around the world.
"It's been unbelievable," Britton said. "People are just saying, 'Hey, read the story, good job.' I'm getting emails and Facebook messages from Germany, China, England. People are just clamoring for it."
caffeine is a drug.. be it a lite stimulant. its still psychoactive. also this substance is addictive. and u can overdose from coffee. and not even in large amounts.
40 Seagulls die from caffeine overdose in Canada this year from eating used coffee grinds.
17 year old Jasmine Willis, a Durham, UK waitress overdosed by drinking 7 double espressos in 2007. She was taken to the hospital, but recovered soon after. (that’s roughly 1.078 grams)
a 23 British man from Mansfield, England died after taking to 2 spoonfuls of pure caffeine powder washed down by an energy drink at a party. His death was ruled accidental.
Fourteen-year-old Anais Fournier, died after she consumed two 24 ounce Monsters (480mg of caffeine) in a 24 hour period. Cause of death was a heart arrhythmia due to caffeine toxicity. There seems to be some conflicting stories as to how much she really consumed and this seems true since 480mg in a 24 hour period isn’t a toxic amount.
I know people drink coffee for its caffeine properties. just like energy drinks.
DONT BE FOOLED. ITS SIMPLE LOGIC... Starbucks are basically drug dealers... once broken down to a most simple form of logic. and that's why they GROW GROW GROW like a cancer around all our lovely city's.
its just the druggies going back for there fix lol... i swear to go the same mathematical formulas going on in my head right now are saying. weather it be a heroin dealer, a tobacconist or Starbucks.
they opened that business knowing people would be hooked and keep going back.."everyone needs coffee right lol"
OK now i am ranting a raving on hahaha.. gonna go smoke a bowl. might as well have a bomb of whizz as well. prolly more healthy than the caffeine.

Ok, you win the unique conspiracy thinking of the week award. If this is true, the guy is even more brilliant than I originally thought!

Starbucks is awful their coffee tastes like chemicals. I don't see how they got so popular unless it's the unique setting but then again coffee houses have been around a long time so even that confused me. I never go to Starbucks. Their coffee is the pits.
And I love coffee. Right now I am enjoying a cup of folgers black silk. Dark and rich but not bitter.edit on AMu31u0110158312014-01-03T06:58:25-06:00 by AutumnWitch657 because: (no reason given)
Starbucks’ strange vernacular finally drove a customer nuts.
Lynne Rosenthal, a college English professor from Manhattan, said three cops forcibly ejected her from an Upper West Side Starbucks yesterday morning after she got into a dispute with a counterperson — make that barista — for refusing to place her order by the coffee chain’s rules.

I had no idea the word frappuccino was owned by Starbucks. Their coffees are weak and over priced so I go to a local chain for mine. I bet F-word beer could be a big hit if they could get a similar product (frosty beer I imagine).
