so one of the office hottys passed by handing out cans of this :



"One of the students I'm mentoring is selling this Vemma stuff, so I bought a case to help him out. I don't drink energy drinks so I'm giving them away."

Okay.

...

Wow.

Holy poo poo this stuff is bad. Eye-watering, chair pounding, snap-your-head-back-and-spit levels of nasty.

Bawls is the only energy drink I can stand and it's becoming harder and harder to find Bawls anywhere. I just want some more Bawls in my mouth already.

You know they sell aspirin and caffeine together as excedrin or migraine formula. I worked at a convenience store that sold a bunch of Red Bull and I asked the Red Bull rep if he got free Red Bull. He said yes and it hosed up his kidneys because he drank like 3 cans per day.

But he's probably the exception, not the rule.

Acids. Def acids.

also WTF is a mangosteen. Mangoes are delicious - even the common ones where you eat one on Saturday but are still picking random mango strings out of yr teeth on Wednesday

I tried them. Doesn't work as quickly as a small can of redbull + 400 mg of ibuprofen (or 1000mg of aspirin). The combo is magical.

I once grabbed the wrong bottle and took two migraine relief tabs (250mg acetaminophen, 250mg aspirin and 65mg of caffeine per tablet) and washed it down with a 16oz can of redbull. Couldn't stop the shaking.

3/4 of the way through. either it doesn't taste as bad when it warms up some or my taste buds are shutting down?

I was at an airshow in AZ when they first started marketing that stuff - free cold cans of Monster for everyone!

two observations.

first - the air was so dry that cold cans sitting out were indistinguishable from warm cans - condensation didn't exist.

second - honeybees love Monster. That open can you left in your armrest? Check the innards before you take a swig.

That was actually the second time I was there for something weird. The first time I had this weird rash on my forearms that a doctor or two just couldn't figure out. I mean, its a rash though, I thought, and dermatology is like one of least researched medical fields for things that aren't life threatening so I didn't think that was so weird.

But they did. So much so that my doctor asked me (unbelievably politely) if I wouldn't mind coming to a dermatologist conference or something that was being held there in a few weeks. Having a bunch of doctors from around the world try to figure this out for free? gently caress yeah. Anyways, it turned out to be a rare side effect of a mild nickel allergy I was getting from my belt. For the first time in my life since I started wearing belts my stomach was able to touch the top of it when I sat (another reason to not be fat!!!1) which caused an id reaction, creating some sort of very specific rash. After at least 30 doctors examined it one by one (each followed by almost ridiculous apologizing and gratitude) one woman said lift your shirt please and there was a tiny red spot she was looking for. She had seen it before once, and that was that. My rash was photographed and it was entered into the Great Medical Encyclopedia. I bought some non nickel alloy belt and poof, all better.

But anyways, I drank a classic green monster can and within 15 minutes I felt super uncomfortable. I was just sitting, in a cool room, feeling like I just mainlined caffeine and then I suddenly felt like I fell a few times even though I hadn't moved and I called 911. Amusing thing! - if you call 911 on yourself and sound pretty calm and together they don't really act very serious. I'm not blaming them, they weren't unprofessional or anything, but one of the EMT's took my pulse when I was in the ambulance and basically yelled at a guy sitting in the front that it was 160 and he loving busted in the back and kicked the first person to the front, put ECG leads on me, put an IV in me (which blood went into up the tube) and started grilling me for information which I had very little of. My pulse got up to 180 before I started losing feeling in my extremities and I was starting to think I was going to die for sure. The EMT comforted me by saying "don't worry, we have the equipment to handle that!" which of course made me feel even shittier. And the lights and sirens went on and I felt even more morbid .

I was pretty delirious and sweating for a few hours. I was surrounded by nurses and doctors in varying quantities, being asked questions I didn't know the answer to, tested for every possible known thing, my blood being sent for special testing in the research portion, an old professor looking dude looking at me over glasses going Hrmmmm hmmmMMm hmmm. They didn't really want to give me anything because there was zero idea of theory of what was wrong. Eventually my heartrate "settled" to 140, then 120, then the next day it was normal.

Anyways, that's why I don't like monster energy drinks anymore

Dude, this exact same thing happened to me once with a green monster. I've had plenty before, and a few since but one day after I drank one the same thing happened. The feeling like I was falling, and the super high blood pressure. Even the ambulance guy saying "Don't worry, we have the equipment for that!" line.

They didn't really have anyone check me out though. I never even saw a doctor in the ER, they just gave me fluids and some Ativan and it went away in 8 hours so they chalked it up to a panic attack and sent me on my way.

oh I forgot when I was in the ambulance and getting really bad my fake calmness was breaking (subconscious reaction I think) and I kept saying "I can't feel my fingers, please is there something I can do" which turned into "I can't feel my hands!! Please is there something I can do!" in increasing intervals of panic. I felt like once that lack of feeling hit my body I would be dead. Which is actually probably true, for other reasons of course

He told me "Rear! Rear yourself!"

Me: "... what? Please-"

EMT: "Squeeze. Squeeze your anus, like your rearing"

Me: *have I gone crazy* "What does that mean!"

EMT: "Pretend your taking a poop"

Me: "????"

EMT: "Now try to stop taking a poop! Do that! Rear your butt!"

And I did. I don't know if it helped but I guess it distracted me from the fear of dying a little.

Monster energy drinks!
