in thread My preferred source of caffeine is...

No, a typical can of soda has between half and 1/3 the caffeine of a cup of coffee (also, note that a can of soda is much larger volume, so if you're going by concentration then the difference between soda and coffee is even higher). A quick google could correct me, but off the top of my head:
  • can coke: high 30s mg caffeine
  • can MtDew: 50-55 mg caffeine
  • can diet coke: ~45 mg caffeine (note: considerably higher than regular coke)
  • cup coffee: 100-110 mg caffeine
The IC50 lethal dose of caffeine being about 5 grams (50 cups of coffee or 100 cans of dew).

The thing that makes MtDew deliver such a supreme kick in the ass is the combination of sugar and caffeine. Since MtDew is about the only thing I drink with sugar in it (only diet for other sodas, and no sugar in my coffee), the difference of the sugar is usually much greater than the difference in the caffeine... also, I have a prety high tollerance to caffeine at this point. Anyway, what this means is: I drink coffee out of necessity; I drink mountain dew for effect!

    I had to curtail my Mt. Dew drinking habits as I was going through about 12 cans a day.

    If I remember correctly, my caloric intake from sources other than the Dew was about 1000 per day, while the liquid intake was in the neighborhood of 2000 from the sugars.

    Now, it's all about the Diet Dew. Four 2 Liter bottles a day...
