    For sure, there is a tolerance threshold for caffeine; I don't get that "high" anymore, there is absolutely no way it could happen for me, after 2 decades of becoming used to copious amounts of caffeine. I would just question whether or not it's addictive, based on the fact I can easily go without it if I needed to. When I wake up, I'm not tired or cranky without it, and have gone a few months without, or with very little caffeine before(just didn't think about it) and experienced no sides, just was less focused.

    You need DVR, or just watch your shows on the internet.

    The only things I hate more than TV commercials are radio commercials

    Sattelite radio... that fixed it for me.

    Mark says it's good, now we'll see paleo folks slamming 5 hour energy with their bacon and eggs

    If you want something similar to 5 hour energy, without the shitty price tag(seriously, 3.50 for that thing?) grab the shots from the 99 cent store or Winco, they're the same thing, but cost a dollar.

    Well, I don't experience this at all: I have AT MOST one cup of coffee (high quality) in the early morning and never feel like more than that. Some days I have none. I would not call myself addicted ...

    I hate energy drinks because they purport to be better for you than caffeine. That's bullcrap. Caffeine works. B vitamins, etc...ugh. Get it from your food. Furthermore it just doesn't work that way as a stimulant. Energy drinks are mental tricks, that's all. I'll keep my coffee. I hate energy drinks with vitriol.
