No, that’s not true, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was. OH MAN I FEEL SO MUCH MORE INVIGORATED INSTANTLY AFTER DRINKING THIS CAN OF COKE. Come on, it’s not THAT much of a boost.


  1. I make my own placebos-I mean energy drinks. About a year ago I bought a big bottle of guarana gel caps and liquid b-vitamin complex from GNC. Any time I wanted an energy I took any random sugar filled juice and broke any number of guarana caps in it, each vaguely relating to a serving of a caffine containing drink, and put a dropper of b-vitamin in. It’s a hell of a lot cheeper, it has less gay fake shit, and it works like a goddamn charm.

  2. well..
    Coke has caffiene, sugar, and little else. It wasn’t manufactured for energy; just taste, really. NOS/Rockstar, however, does give me a pretty noticeable buzz.
    I was thinking this same thing a semester back, though, and a group and I in my psych class actually ended up doing an experiment on Full Throttle (made by Coke O:) to see if the placebo theory was at all in effect. As much as I hate to sound like a marketing exec, F.T. actually did end up increasing heartrate and concentration.
    Still, I say Mr. T should have pushed water and OJ more than he did milk. :\

  3. I read on the interweb that Red Bull secretly contains meth.. some googling resulted in finding this:
    “They get so cranked up on the methamphetamine in this Devil’s brew that they start to shake all over – including their moist little teenage groin areas. And you know what happens when young folks’ sinful parts start to tingle and shake – it’s like popping open a hot can of just-shook Pepsi!”
    I don’t believe it but that quote is HIGHlarious.
    But wait! this quote from the same article is also rofl inducing :
    “Friends, let’s get to the facts now. Dr. Edwards Googled this Red Bull – which is nothing more than “liquid sin in a fancy tin, he put it under a Bible Scope in the Creation Science Lab. Friends, he made a startling discovery. This so-called “energy drink” is carbonated bull urine, with lemon flavoring and enough crystal meth to get a whole housing project full of Negroes tap dancing up and down the streets until dawn. “

  4. To Surge lovers: I read that “Vault” ~= Surge.
    Lately, we local ITG players have been toting around Gatorade, Powerade, etc. Those don’t seem to be as chunked up with caffeine and sugar as the other kind of “energy” (stay-up-all-night) drink.

    1. Gatorade and Powerade HYDRATE you. That’s what matters when you’re playing ITG. You don’t want to be downing syrupy icky crap that’ll screw up your system.
