I just shotted (sounds so cheesy) a Red Bull Energy Shot (RBES) for the first time of my life. I bought it when I was in Poland as I don’t think we have them in Norway. I also bought a 500 ml can of Red Bull. That’s a lot of Red Bull! “Anywho”, as I’ve taken this Saturday of (which mean no school or anything stressing). I wanted to try out the energy boost this shot is supposed to give you. As I don’t drink any coffee, and most of my tea is caffeine free, my body is not used to this kind. Everything on my bottle is written in Polish, but I’m pretty sure it says that 100 ml of REBS contains 133 ml of caffeine, which is around 80 ml caffeine per bottle. So let’s see when it kicks in. I’ve still have some cleaning and vacuum left, so a energy boost would be nice. And if nothing happens, I could of course just drink another 500 ml of Red Bull.
In April and June 2009, batches of “Red Bull Cola” drinks imported from Austria were found to contain between 0.1 – 0.3 micrograms of cocaine per litre, according to Hong Kong officials. In Taiwan it has was found that the importer was due to launch a marketing campaign the next day. In Taiwan it is punishable by death, or a life sentence in prison to import cocaine. In Germany 11 out of 16 states had already banned the drinks by 25 May 2009.
Testing of Red Bull Energy Drink and its variations has shown that a person with a low tolerance for cocaine would have to consume two million cans of the drink in a single sitting before becoming critically ill. At this point, no further action has been taken on the matter in Taiwan.
Got back from Poland on Sunday. Had a great time visiting my friend. Sadly I’m a bit busy at the moment. So just a quick update. I’ve also uploaded some graffiti pictures to my Flickr account, more from the trip will come.
Monday tomorrow, so going back to school. It’s been a long weekend. With a bit to little to do. Was home yesterday, watched a lot of series and played some Wind Waker. Hope it’s not much left now, because I want to start play some other games soon. Can’t start a new one before I’m done with the one I’m playing, or else I’ll just mess up the stories.
Today have been a more fun day, was up early as usual. I really need to get a darker curtain. It’s too light in the morning, and warm. The sun is shining on my body! I started of to wash the dishes before I dusted down my living room. Quiet a lot of dust on my shelves. After that I started cleaning my bathroom. Even cleaned the pipes, they where disgusting! A lot of strange things where growing there. I even cut my self doing that. So now I have a “big” finger with plaster on it. Makes it a little harder to write, but I’ll manage. I had originally planed to BBQ in the park with some of my friends, but the weather wasn’t that good, plus my best friend was a little sick, we cancelled. So I went up to him and made some lasagna, watched “The Happening” and played some Resident Evil 5 co-op. It was a lot better co-op than single player.
So I haven’t talked about my Poland trip lately, because there is probably not going to be any trip in June, maybe in August. I need to see. You my wonder why, and its because I don’t have any summer job to get some money from. I thought I could work the hole summer at Norwegian Church Aid where I’m currently working, but they don’t have anything for me to do. So guess I need to find somewhere else to work. And that’s hard. Have sent a ton of CV and application, so now I just have to sit back and wait. I really hope I can get my hands on some work. Or it will be a poor summer.
