The Viscous Coffee shop in Adelaide, Australia is selling the Adelaide Ass Kicker, an espresso over cold-drip ice cubes drink with a caffeine content of around 5 grams, or "80 standard cups-o-joe." I did the math myself and it actually seems more like 25 - 50 cups of regular coffee, but whatever, the point is you'll have the jitters and need to poop immediately.
For those chasing an instant hit, be warned; not all the caffeine in the drink is released immediately. "Combining the minimum drinking time and the slow release of cold drip-imparted caffeine is how we achieve the sustained uptime" Benington said.
Some pointed out that while the beverage packs a serious punch, some say it could also pose a serious risk to health, if consumed too quickly or by those with high blood pressure.
A fatal dose of caffeine for a healthy adult is considered to be roughly 18 grams of caffeine consumed over a one to two hour period. A large Ass Kicker has five grams of caffeine and is recommended to to be consumed over a three to four hour period.
First of all, if you need the equivalent of 80 cups of coffee to function, you're already dead. Just stay dead. I drank four energy drinks back-to-back once and thought I was going to have a heart attack. I didn't, although the doctor said that is the day I got diabetes.
Thanks to MK, who dared me to buttchug one, which I would like to take this time to graciously decline. No thank you.
