Energy Drinks

I’ve never had an energy drink. Or, at least, something that’s been marketed as such.

The little shots like 5-Hour Energy and the like don’t even interest me in the slightest, I must admit. Coffee? That’s my energy drink right there. But I’m intrigued: do these things work? Are they addictive? And what about just trying to get more sleep?

Wow. Nice new format. Let’s hope posting is easier than the last format. I loved posting here in the past, but that updated spam prevention protocol just made it way too difficult.

Oh, the topic: I’m with you. I’ve never had an interest and never will. To me, it’s gotta be a marketing thing. The one thing that did give me a lot of energy was not a drink–it was a CPAP machine. I love it. I’m a new man.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
