    So what's Redbull and why don't we have it down here in upside down land?
    School years were the best days of my life. I used to get caned by middle aged women wearing high heels, stocking and glasses. Now I have to pay for it.

    it's a energy drink or w/e...but I don't drink it for the energy...oddly enough I like the taste of it. call me crazy. it's really good... I lived off the stuff for a while, but 2 bucks for a 8 oz can or w/e got real expensive when I was drinking 10 dollars of it a day.

    Don't drink it before a ride though. I've known plenty of people who have suffered massive nose bleeds by mixing Red Bull and a higher exertion level

    Are you serious?! What, if I want to increase my energy level should I consider?

    vile stuff, red bull is. we got some in the shop last summer, and i took a swig and almost gagged. it's the only energy drink that tastes like meat. gamey meat. and i'm a vegetarian.

    give me enervit any day.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

    Hahahaha...thats funny. When it came out thats EXACTLY what it was for. Poor mans *X*...they would sell it at raves in order to get people off the drug itself. Now it is a popular drink that everyone uses except those kids.

    I don't mind the stuff (even with the meat flavour...hmmmmm meat) but I still prefer a good coffee...

    Ignore the hand prints on the monitor... gotta clean that.

    Last week I pulled 4 all nighters, working on the backend of bikeforums.net and a freelance clients site. 13 can's of redbull in total... the Jager was given to me yesterday by a touring cyclist. I let him spend monday night at my place, he saw the redbull, and got excited about jager bombs. Sadly, he left before we could break it open, and I'm outta redbull.

    Redbull gives you wings. Well, Redline straps a rocket pack on your back! The first time I drank bottle I was off to the races. I was pacing back in fourth for hours. It scared the hell out of me. Now I just use a sip or two. I should have read the warning label.

    i find that it has a kind of acidic viscousness that i associate with greasiness. i don't drink soft drinks much, so it could just be an aversion to soda. of course, it could also be the taurine.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.
