150 cans of Coca Cola and I'm a goner!

I reckon I've drunk that many in a week before.

It would take 432.25 cans of Coca-Cola Classic to kill you

in a row? I'd choke on my own vomit from being so full.

Yeah, your stomach volume is quite a bit smaller than the volume you'd need to consume to get a lethal dose of caffeine from soda.

But look on the bright side - if those ~95 liters (25 gallons) of soft drinks are refreshingly ice-cold, you'll burn 14.3 kcal (food calories) just by heating them up! That's almost a fraction of one soda can! The ice-water diet returns. :tongue2:

Hmm... it'll take less diet coke to kill me then regular coke...

look whos drinking healthy now :D

LOL

Their script is messed up. The kilograms and pounds part. It doesnt change a THING when you chose either or. The answer will be the same. For example, put in 50 for pounds, and then for kilograms, you will get the same answer.

Yes, I found it a bit dubious that brewnog could be 75 pounds (~34 kg)..

How the caffein kill you?

Convulsions or heart arrhythmias.

soda makes me more thirsty. I cant handle the sugar. when I was little my mother use to tell me cola would kill me. is it true that theres actually more caffine in tea than their is in coffee? I drink mass amounts of tea, and someone tried to tell me that there is just the same if not more caffine in tea than coffee. I still love my tea, but maybe I would sleep better if I quit it before say four in the afternoon or something.

Kind of. It's misleading. There's more caffeine, gram for gram, in tea leaves than in coffee beans. When made into a drink, coffee generally has quite a bit more caffeine (though it obviously depends on brew strength).

For all your caffeine info needs, http://www.erowid.org/chemicals/caffeine/caffeine_info1.shtml#2

See above.

Don't let anyone put you off tea, unless you genuinely are having problems sleeping. It's full of antioxidants, and personal experience has shown that human productivity is directly proportional to the amount of tea you've drunk!

10 cans of coke gives me the runs.

Come on ladies keep posting how many sodas will kill you.

(that way we can all find out how much you weigh )

or, in my case, how big one's genitalia is.

Gravenwood, one pop can with the right force will kill you if it hits you on the temple.
