Today’s Experiment

Posted by dracoling

Lately I have been falling asleep at work, or feeling strongly fatigued. Today I decided to try out the 5-hour energy shots.

Purchased 2 "Lemon-Lime" shots last night.

Initial reaction "these things are freaking NASTY".
It kicked my eyelids back open though, so I guess it works. So far I've consumed about 2/3 of one.

@08:43 -
Sitting at my desk approx 45 mins later, I still feel a little tired but my eyelids aren't trying to shut themselves.

Leg has started bouncing... starting to speed. Can't tell if this is a crash or just being energetic. Definitely awake though.

@11:35 -
Decided to finish the rest of the shot. With a cry of "For Science!" I downed the rest of it. The initial rush a moment or two after it hits the system is an intriguing feeling. As long as I can settle back down and do some work instead of speeding and twitching I'll consider this a success. If not, I'll have to save this stuff for parties and such.

Will continue to update.
