Coffee? REALLY??

So I'm reading a copy of FIRST magazine... What? Why do I have a copy of that? Um...no idea, really. Apparently once upon a time - or at least sometime this past year - something in it caught my eye as I was waiting in line at the grocery store.

Getting back to the story...

There is an article on the health benefits of coffee. One of the "little known facts" about coffee, according to this, is that it stimulates brain function. Okay, I knew that - not so little known, as it turns out, since college students have been chugging pots of coffee while cramming for exams for years. The article goes on to suggest that adult ADD can be toned down by drinking 3 cups of coffee a day.

No offense to the hardcore drinkers out there, but I usually limit my caffiene intake to a soda or two if that much, which might amount to one cup of coffee total. Three cups and I'd be talking like Jordan from Real Genius, and I really don't think anyone wants that.

Granted, if I drank three cups of coffee, there'd be so much sugar and cream in there that the coffee would be hard-pressed to hit me. Hm, that must be why the same article says that three cups of coffee a day can also help you lose weight.

Not in my world.
