    Some interesting comments to be read there....

    What I liked was the comments as to the actual amount of Caffeine Vs the so called 6 cups...

    From what I have experienced, I doubt that 6 cups from most of the coffee shops on site, would give you significantly less... And its crap to boot.

    Instant would be the better way to go if you were after the dose ;D

    As to six cups... Is that singles or doubles ? I would suggest that many of us would might meet the 6 cups a day without too much of a problem..

    Maybe they should just drink MOTHER ?

    Just another example of how badly our Govt has stuffed up practically everything theyve touched and now theyre selling off what little remains of our public assets to pay for all their blunders.... >:(

    Sometimes I just wish we had a benevolent Dictator waiting out in the wings to sort out the entire horrible mess....

    Yeah, I know. Never gonna happen :(

    Trouble is they get paid (politicians) to make mistakes
    If they stuff up the country or a state they blame world events

    I say that there should be a law
    When our politicians are voting if we as a country are going to war

    The Law should be
    Politicians familys must go first cos I dont think they really know what its like to loose family in war

    We do. Its just that most people are too busy / skeptical / "grown up" / <insert excuse here> to want to know about him. Its an ironic shame that most people dont want to hear the answer to a question they dearly want to hear the answer to :-? :(

    If you want the hospital system fixed, its easy: make all politicians be only be eligible for general admission as public patients. They have to wait for elective surgery in the same queue as public health patients.

    Equally, if you want to fix public transport then force all pollies to take public transport.

    Of course, prevention is always better than cure. I think society is gradually becoming more health conscious

    Nice idea Steve, though I imagine this would only lead to improvements in already privileged areas, where the services are least needed.

    Even better, politicians should only have surgery by a surgeon who has been awake for 72 hours and has drank over 20 cups of coffee...then they might rethink this strategy.

    Just another example of how our governments care for us! Bloody idiots.

    Re: 6 cups a day keeps the doctor awake

    Hmm - I find that caffeine keeps me awake alright - but it wrecks my concentration after a while. I remember staying up 36 hours straight and drinking about 6 cups of strong instant back when I was a student - and by the end of that, I had a buzzing sound in my head and the attention span of an adrenalized gnat. Just what you want in somebody cutting you open!
