Red Bull Gives You Wings...Or At Least Taurine

Everyday this week, I've had to work late (heavy emphasis on the word "late"). I've been designing a stock quote application for a major financial institution. This is my first project that I've been assigned to work on from start to finish. Red BullNeedless to say, it's been a learning experience. Two nights ago, I felt like I was in college again because I worked until 3 a.m. Now, in all fairness, I didn't start my evening workday until about 10 p.m., but still, it was 5 hours in addition to the 10.5 I had already invested that day. Anyway, I downed 2 Red Bulls during my "late nighter," and it worked! It didn't give me energy per se, but it made me more focused and not sleepy at all. In fact, I only got 4 hours of sleep that night, and I didn't feel the least bit groggy the next day.

On a completely different note, I found this video of these two little freaks both entertaining and somewhat disturbing. Does anyone else think they look like robots? Brace yourself at 0:39. You've been warned!

  1. I disagree with the fact that you weren't "the least bit groggy". You are ALWAYS groggy!
