I have no problems with drinking....
Only time I had what I think must have been a hangover was when I had 8 pints of CocaCola at a wedding (might have been spiked of course)... I was TT then and had done 10 pints at college with no problems...
Ithink the names a misprint for CloacaCola....
I remember blazing head and scrambled vision and the floodgates being open on ALL sluices....
I thought I was dying and felt so bad I didn't care.

CloacaCola... ROFL!

Actually, it sounds like a typical case of caffeine poisoning: "The symptoms of caffeine intoxication are not unlike overdoses of other stimulants. It may include restlessness, nervousness, excitement, insomnia, flushing of the face, increased urination, gastrointestinal disturbance, muscle twitching, a rambling flow of thought and speech, irritability, irregular or rapid heart beat, and psychomotor agitation. In cases of much larger overdoses mania, depression, lapses in judgment, disorientation, disinhibition, delusions, hallucinations, rhabdomyolysis, or psychosis may occur."

Good thing you stopped at 8...

Your advice confuses me. What is this "Don't Drink" thing?

Oh, sorry Secoh. Should have put a disclaimer in there that said "Ozzies: Just skip the last 5 crates of brown ale."
