Death by Caffeine

In the past I’ve posted about fighting hordes of children, how well you’d survive in the zombie apocalypse, and taking on the elderly. Today we’re going to talk about something a little less probable: how much caffeine you’d have to consume to kill you.

Death By Caffeine allows you calculate how much drip coffee, espresso, or energy drink you need to chug at once to (probably) die.

I’d need to consume 118 8-ounce cups of drip coffee to break loose from this mortal coil. At the height of my coffee consumption, I was drinking two 8-ounce cups an hour on average for about eighteen hours a day. That pushed my digestive and nervous systems to the limit, and I don’t know how I could possibly down over 80 more cups :\

What’s your limit?

Thanks to my pal ElJay for passing this along. 🙂

    415.5 cans of Coke Classic. At my peak I think I “only” drank about 12-18 cans per day.
