    Hearing Voices?

    I don't know if anyone has read the recent article about high caffeine intake and seeing visions.....

    .....anyway, what really took me back was this exerpt from the article

    They also stress that experiencing hallucinations is not a definite sign of mental illness and that about 3% of people regularly hear voices.
    3% of people are hearing voices?

    No wonder mass transit is so unpopular.

    So fess up Foosters, who is hearing voices ? And what are they saying to you?

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    From the Article: (emphasis added)
    People who drank more than seven cups of instant coffee a day were three times more likely to hallucinate than those who took just one, a study found.

    You've got worse mental issues to be concerned with than hearing voices if you're intentionally knocking back 7 cups of narsty-arse instant coffee a day.

    You've got worse mental issues to be concerned with than hearing voices if you're intentionally knocking back 7 cups of narsty-arse instant coffee a day.
    so your hypothesis is that these individuals with the hardcore instant coffee habit are already +/- 90% more likely to be hearing voices than the general population?

    I would agree

    you guys, by the virtue of drinking coffee at all, are on the insane scale.
    tea, is much tastier and is healthier.

    Never heard voices that I'm aware of. I may drink one or two 12oz. cans of soda a day. No coffee for me! I think it's grody.

    You need to learn to speak fly. Those guys just sit on the wall and see EVERYTHING. They have the BEST gossip.

    I don't hear any voices.
    Yes you do.
    Do not, shut up!
    But you do.
    Be quiet, leave me alone already!
    No voices....never heard a one.
    Did you hear that he claims he never hears voices in his head.
    What?
    hahaha
    You're kidding?
    Who are we then?

    All jokes aside. I use to write stuff down that popped into my head. Had a running tab on it just for kicks. Weird s*** pops in my head once in a while. Sentences that have absolutely no meaning or connection to what I'm currently doing.

    Like: I'd be working on a project, then, clear as a bell, "The guitarist wears fishnet tights."
    I'd be like, WTF? OK. Where's my pad. I need to write this one down.

    We should have a CTRL-V thread for some of this stuff.

    Theortically, would the stuff we post in the CTRLV brain toaster thread be admissable in court?

    I think that would depend on whether or not you've taken your meds this morning.
