Death Wish

Did you know that it is actually possible to overdose on coffee? You’re reading this either thinking I’m an idiot for not realizing this sooner, or are just as surprised as I am. Really? Death from coffee? Apparently various caffeine calculators found online can estimate how many caffeinated cups it would take to knock your lights out. Permanently.

CBS ran an article on the very topic of overdosing on caffeine. Evidently multiple people have experienced severe side affects or death from guzzling one-to-many caffeinated beverages.

Supposedly 66.66 cups of brewed coffee would put me six feet under. Do I see a challenge here?
