    can I have back my multiple radio button?!..

    L*

    there are no rules, there are no thumbs..
      That would go a bit too far in emulating the old mechanical buttons that you could indeed press several at a time, usually doing something both unexpected and useless.

    There should be espresso on the list combining the two most important ones...

    Selected caffeine as number four but there's also

    • Beer, preferably home made
    • Ribs

    I have to say "Water", although I think I'm allergic to it. If I drink a few liters of *anything*, even with as little as 4% water in it, my head hurts really bad the next morning.

    You're forcing me to choose between alcohol and caffeine? I... I don't think I can help here.

    /me goes to drink it over a jack and coke.

      Is it possible to consume coffee without a cigarette?!
      Seems to me caffeine && nicotine should be listed as:
      caffeine && nicotine
      But, then again, the same could probably said about alcohol && cigarettes. :P
      #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
      use perl::always;
      my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
      print $perl_version;
        I can personally attest, that nicotine consumption is NOT required for either of those activities. Neither caffeine or alcohol consumption require it.
      Nope, just take your pick of the numerous coffee stouts :)

    The four basic classes of nutrients are fat, starch, sugar, and crunchy bits.

    ...and Pot Noodles

    If any of my proposed solutions have minor errors, it's because I don't waste my genius on trivial matters. :-P

    Back when I had time to think about such things, the four categories were
    • salt
    • sugar
    • grease
    • caffeine
    Due to this truth, a pizza served with a 2-liter bottle of Coke comprise a balanced meal -- the former meets the salt and grease requirements, while the latter provides sugar and caffeine. Alcohol is a garnish, and should be enjoyed as such.

    I chose water, although strictly speaking not a nutrient. Had vitamins and/or minerals been on the list (excluding sodium, which typically isn't lacking in a 'modern' diet), I would have chosen that instead, simply because it would be the correct answer.

    Who the hell is drinking water?!

    The best medicine against depression is a cold beer!
