In the Gingold family of products

Really, I just wanted to see if I could successfully embed one of these on my blog. But it might make a good origin for a superhero.

A very good spoof on all thoses energy drinks.

I'm very worried about all those energy drinks out there. They mostly contain sugar and a pharmacological level of caffeine. If you believe the media, alot of teens consume unhealthy amounts of these products.

We didn't need this crap during OUR college years. We just drank extra-large Tim Horton's coffee with 3-4 sugar packets in them. And glazed sourcream doughnuts...

Oh, never mind....

While I wouldn't call what we ate and drank healthy (my three-coffee-a-day diet right now certainly isn't), there IS something worrying about energy drinks. Drink your big coffee, eat your donuts, and you're full. Drink a Red Bull or whatever, and you still have room for donuts and coffee. Isn't there an indication against combining alcohol and many of those drinks? And yet, bars are the main place where those things are consumed.

I haven't even tried one. I guess they just make me feel queasy on principle. Like a "fun and refreshing" way to take caffeine pills, which just seem a hop away from speed.

But you're the doctor here...

When these came out it traumatized me. What, were there not enough products whose sales are based on addiction already? Were people not already doomed by soda and coffee!? I didn't think it would last. I thought it would be a product people would be smart enough not to take....alas...

I havn't tried them yet either. Coffee alone gets my body in a knot I can't imagine these things. The crash you get from them must be horrible.

Kicking nature in the face without energy drinks since 1981.
