So two days ago I was at Walmart and I bought two 5 Hour Energy Extra Strengths and needed to show them my ID to purchase them. What's in those things that people need to be 18 to get?

You shouldn't have to, I've been able to buy plenty of them. Did you try buying the ones with alcohol in them?

An assload of caffeine.

Caffeine is a drug.

I guess they don't want a kid to have his heart explode by drinking too many of them.


Shut up already.

It's for people exactly like you who are clueless.

Anyone want to explain what happens if you drink too much caffeine?

Those energy drinks can cause heart problems if you have too many of them.
And that can lead to death.

Of course, caffeine isn't the only thing they load them down with.

I'm pretty sure your body builds a reliance on it if you drink it too much, though I'm pretty sure you can OD on those things.


Last night as you slept, I touched your face and you smiled!...
but now you frown. A pity. Smiling is healthier.

it'll pretty much destroy your bladder strength and you may develop insomnia, anxiety, reliance on caffeine, headaches and a heart that beats faster than a cheetah

I recall some caffeine truffles my brother had once, huge amount of caffeine in that and they gave more in the box than needed to overdose.

Energy Shots are for kids who never were meant to live.

They don't do anything for me, but then again they were from pound land.

Why consume such things, unless you're planning to stay awake for a day? You'll do damage to your body from the overload in caffeine.

I have had this problem as well. My mom drinks the things like they are fucking Kool-Aid and she tries to get me to drive to the store for her and buy them and shouts at me when I tell them that they won't sell them to me because I am too young.

I am trusted by the state to drive a car, but I am not trusted to buy and energy drink.

lol wut?

For I am and forever shall be... a master ruseman.
