    Clearly the site is flawed; for me 177.82 espresso will see me drop off my perch. Now for the flaw; it says 240.22 instant coffee wil kill me. It is out by 239.22 ;)

    Sarg, 89.7 is a very low score...
    Are you sure you entered the right poison? Because if you chose espresso that would me you weigh only 45.9kg!!!

    That just doent seem right to me, but what do i know?

    185.64 for me and 87.93 for the missus. And yes, I do outweigh her two to one. :D

    I think she would die from milk bloat first. ;) She isnt hardened to the dark side yet. ;) But she can outdo me well in the thermonuclear chilli dish stakes.

    How much caffeine would it take to kill you?

    How many espresso shots before you start pushing up daisies?

    Re: How much caffeine would it take to kill you?

    If you drank 230 shots of espresso, that equates to 6.9L of water in those shots, give or take. That much water in a short period of time would kill you anyway, which makes the whole caffeine thing a bit academic.

    Re: Death by Caffeine

    I think Bean Bear and Thundergod would make good bouncers at a night venue.

    I weighed in at a very average 175.87 shots.

    Id die of old age before coming to that figure on my Miss Silvia.

    As for Sunbeams, the machine will die before you do. ;)

    Thanks for the link Chris. Good for a laugh.

    Re: Death by Caffeine

    The average dose of caffeine is around 85 to 250 mg or the equivalent of one to three cups of coffee.Caffeine poisoning is actually fairly common in the United States, although death is very rare.Caffeine can result in variety of cardiovascular,metabolic effects,including lowered fatigue and increased alertness. High doses can cause nervousness, and insomnia also.

    Ah, but how many until you become homicidal?

    Two mates and I attended the first ever Sydney Aroma Festival at the Rocks many years ago. We had a mission - try at least one espresso from every roaster there. Which ended up somewhere between 20 and 30 shots in about four hours.

    We were each so wired, that we knew not to speak to each other on the train trip home, because it wouldve taken very little provocation to kill someone in the state we were in! So uncomfortable in my own skin.

    273 again.

    Looks like the 10kg Ive recently lost takes me back to my July 2007 weight.
