These days, I stick to the coffee/caffeine boosters. (With the exception of the Sparks I mentioned earlier) Starbucks makes a double espresso type chilled drink that isn't bad.

I did way too many bad things during the 80's to press my luck. I was working 2 jobs, living on 4 hours of sleep. Yeah, coffee did the trick. LMAO.

My son told me about AMP when it first came out. I dismissed it. My brother is a contractor and I help him out when he needs it. I was up most of the night partying the night before I was to be on site to build a deck. I was hungover and dragging big time.

I stopped at the corner gas station to pick up some juices and teas for the cooler. I spied this AMP. This little can is gonna give me a boost? I bought two. Put one in the cooler and drank one on the way. When I got there, I wasn't feeling any better. So, I drank the second one. Big mistake.

Whatdoyouwantmetodo?WOOHOOThinkthey'dlikemetoclean theirhousewhilewe'rehere?WOOHOOI'llevenwashtheirca rWOOHOOGetoutofmywayComingthroughWOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!! !!

Then 2 hours later, a huge nosedive right into the ground. 100 degrees out with 80% humidity. Thought I was taking a trip to the ER. Never again. Flashbacks from the 70's, man.

Well the truth be known. I haven't drank alcohol sense I was 22 and I'm 43 now.
From time to time I will drink an O'Douls or some wine on holidays. Home made wine at that. My family makes there own.

That was too funny Rowdyray




I can drink a gallon of this stuff the whole day, after a while your system starts adapting and so when day off's come along im like bedridden. The dying affects of this stuff really kicks in as fast it boosts.

Oh yeah? My dad has been making his own for years. Really good stuff I might say. What does your family make theirs from? Grapes? Berries?

Hi,

It tastes different. not bad for me but I like Rockstar & Red Bull. I found it at a local fitness place and searched around. fianlly I took the empty to a local store and they order it for me. (alot cheaper the the fitnes place too)
it does have alot more kick than Rockstar and Red Bull. I mostly drink one can of Redline.

Thanks

Grapes. My Great Grandmother was from Sicily. My uncle has the original barrel and all. I had a 100 year old bottle and we opened it. It was ok. But bitter.
We all drank some and dumped the bottle. I think it was spoiled. We haven't had any sense my grandpa died.
We still have some at my moms that is good.

Holy crap. On Friday, I drank a Red Bull before a karate lesson. During the lesson, I felt like I was getting shot in the chest every time I did a push up. Energy drinks suck. I am never touching them again. By the way, Red Bull is not as good as they claim it is. It is all marketing.
