Russell Beattie writes that Mike Rowehl is planning to drink 100 cups of coffee in 48 hours. People are concerned that this amount of caffeine will hurt him badly. I doubt it. 15 years and probably 40 pounds ago, I was regularly drinking 30-50 cups a day. I slept little, drank a lot. I do not say this to brag — a poorly planned camping trip led to a caffeine withdrawal that did hurt me badly; I saw the error of my ways and cut back. I’m just saying that Mr. Rowehl will most likely be fine.

And that the Death by Caffeine calculator is an odd thing to bring into the world.
