I sure it'd be possible. Like punctuation, it's simply a matter of will.

It may be possible. Of course I am not going to try doing it but you are free to try. I would carry a potty around with you though. Excess fluids can play havoc with you bladder.

You'd have to drink a cup of coffee every 15 minutes in order to drink 100 in 24 hours. That isn't taking sleep into account because you won't be able to.

Forget being able to sleep, you'll be jumping off the walls.  I've had 10 cups of coffee in like 2 hours and I was like really hyper, and I would laugh at everything in sight...Maybe it will be like being drunk...but without the blurryness?

Just incase..Don't drink coffee and drive! ;-)

It's possible I think.
But you have to drink a cup every 8,4 min, if you're awake about 14 hours a day (on the other hand, who is going to sleep after 100 cups of coffee?).

Another point, not exactly on this topic:
 After watching "Fry and the Slurm Factory" it came to my mind that Fry said he drank about 100 cans of cola a week and that his heavy drinking is nothing, but looking at all the Slurm cans lying there he's way over 100 cans a day!   confused

now look. look at my little pic.
i will try it one day soon. maybe not 100 but i will start with say 25 then a few days later go 50 and so on untill
A) i am too hyper to do it
B) i can just no longer do it
C) i have to go to hospital
D) i just think i cannot be bothered
E) run out of coffee
F) got such a caffeine rush that i can't make the coffee.
and so on.
but i will probably try. i might get a friend over who like it alot and see wjo can do it 1st in under 24hours.
we will wait and see i guess.
i could get sponsered by friends/ family etc


i thought i would ad that i was telling some ppl i might that i was talking to on msn and they are all against me doing it
so i don't know now but i might

Most likely.

Anyway, I'm sure that it's possible, but why would you want to? There are way too many problems with it. The biggest is the fact that you'd go on some kind of caffeine over-drive. And the bladder thing.

Of course, if you didn't drink non-stop, then you could probably do it. Like drink 4 cups every hour for 22 hours, then 2 cups for the last two hours.

alright i got it checked and i don't think i will do 100 cups.
it dilutes your body fluids cause of so much water and if they get diluted to much you can die. that's a quick explanation of what would happen. it would be possible to do it but you would be in heaps of trouble after(as in your body would be in trouble)

Could you die from it because if you drink too much water you can die cant you? thats how most ecstacy people die.
oh yer that reminds me- what do you call a ferret on ecstacy?

Here's the lowdown:

You need to drink one cup every 4.8 minutes, or roughly every five minutes, in order to drink 300 in 24 hours.

A standard cup of coffee contains 70-180mg caffeine depending on the strength and method of preparation - so lets say you get 120mg per cup. That's a total of 36000mg of caffeine, or 36 grams.

Each coffee mug contains around 300ml of liquid, so a total of 90000ml, or 90 litres.

Now here's the deal - caffeine is toxic: 10g of caffeine will kill you.

Not only would you be dead from caffeine poisoning, you'd die of over-hydration. Your body wouldn't be able to remove the liquid as quickly as you'd be drinking it. You'd almost certainly die.

so by your stats there we would have 12g of caffeine
and do you think you could work out about the dehydration thing to see if we would be ok for 100 cups plz

This has to be quite and intresting talk, it would be intrsting to find out if you pushed your self to 100 cups of coffee (i know it's be explained that you would die) but mabe the doc's are keeping a secret or somthing, mabe when you do drink 100 cups of coffee that you become like fry, or, not. anyway just an idear also if someone dose do this good luck on you  big grin

Nitpick:

The LDLO (lowest reported lethal intake) of caffeine in humans is 192 mg/kg which translates into 14.4 grams in an average 75 kg man.

Also, caffeine has a half-life in the body of about 4 hours, so the caffeine level in the body would never really exceed about 4 g. Of course, it would still be highly unhealthy to consume 12 grams of caffeine over a 24 hour period.

I went with 65kg (my weight, and I'm above average height), and then rounded to the nearest five  tongue

And I used my weight.   tongue Which seems reasonable for Fry as well.

In any case, I think you'd get very sick and unable to drink more before you'd die from caffeine overdosis at the intake rate we're dealing with here.

yeah you would probably be throwing up from dehydration before or from drinking too much liquids too fast as you can only consume something like 2L in about an hour or 2 or something like that

I once saw a man consume 1.5L of Coca-Cola in 11 seconds. Of course, it didn't stay down.  tongue

It depends. I've downed well over four litres in an hour, because I was running a 800m followed by 1600m race, in the blazing sun.

yeah that would be because the water is using more by sweating to control a constant body temperature which it needs. if you didn't sweat when you did that you would probably pass out from heat exhastion
