    5-Hour Energy Drink-Shot Thing

    Hey guys,

    I woke up extremely tired today. Always fun. I got a bottle of this stuff (5-Hour Energy), the ones in the little red-orange container, that promised all this great stuff.

    Anyway, i was reading the the nutrition facts, and two of the main ingredients were in concentrations ive never, ever seen before. One B-vitamin was 8333% of the daily recommended amount PER SERVING, and there were 4 servings in the litte bottle! Another something was 2000%, and most were above 100% PER SERVING!

    I did the math real quick and thats like 25000% of your daily needs of that one vitamin. Daaaaaamn! Your covered for, what, 250 days?

    I just found it insane. Anyone drink this stuff regularly? I'll never get it again, that stuff frickin scares me! I might as well drink my plants Superthrive, or maybe give this stuff to them haha!

    Aren't those bottles always tiny though? I always thought those things had to super concentrated if they packed all that energy crap into that tiny bottle, but the scale how much is actually in there is shocking. Ick...
    that makes no logic

    I get my vitamins from my food! This might be a conspiracy theory I made up, but I think half of that crap is synthesized from coal tar in China.

    Holy crap. I never knew it'd go over 1000%. LOL. Wow, that's insane. A teacher at my school ( who I wish was one of my teachers D: ) drank one before, and she said she fell asleep from it. 8333%? Dang.

    I am a teacher and I do use it on groggy days. If I am not on top of my game the kids catch on very quickly and will take advantage.

    I have not experienced any negative side effects. I like it because I just feel awake and ready to go without the caffeine buzz or jitters I can get from several cups of coffee.
    Feed me Seymour.

    If it doesn't have guarana in it, it ain't worth drinking.
    Thats my motto anyways.
