The Caffeine Bible

I found an excellent reference guide for the upcoming weeks of finals-studying, paper-writing, and sleep-deprivation. I'm personally partial to coffee, but this opens new possibilities. (And there's a new Red Bull vending machine in my dorm.)

Though the fact that many of the new energy drinks have a disclaimer that says they are "not recommended for children, pregnant women or people sensitive to caffeine" is slightly disturbing. Good thing I don't fall into any of those categories.

Let the caffeine swigging begin.

Is Red Bull kosher?

Coffee's still in the lead and there's nothing like a nice hot cup of coffee on blustery days like today...I'll stick with the coffee over the man-made scary stuff, thanks.

Good luck!

Of course Red Bull is Kosher (well it is around here).
It gives you wings!

Seems like coffee/caffeine is a fuel for anyone!

I liked coffee, until my hands started to shake and then I decided I needed to get off of this stuff.

but when those studying nights get really long.... the caffine just keeps on coming

I just reviewed the most "updated" and "current" edition of krias shma (the portion of the Torah that provides for personal sacrifice). Funny, I don't find any mandate for one to make herself meshuga over a paper. Am I missing something? Has the Torah been superceded by some "professor" who you feel compelled to find favor in her/his eyes so that (s)he may bestow on you the all important "A". Have you become a slave to the (professor) master. I am so happy that I thanked hashem to daday shelo asani aved. But your blog reminds me of my servitude at Yale. Baruch Shepitrani!

Frum Single, I am not a slave to my professor, I am a slave to my own ego, which desperately wants an A and won't be satisfied if I don't do whatever it takes to get it.

Trust me, I would have the exact same attitude were I in Stern or Tourro or Queens. And you knw what? I'd work hard in all those places as well.

And yes, Red Bull is kosher, though in my defense I've never sunk so low as to need it yet. I think that's a good thing, right?

Thanks for making my point. Being a slave to one's ego is inconsistent with the Torah perspective on life and in fact a violation of it core principles. The Torah teaches that a Yid is supposed to subjugate is desires and pursue a relationship with Hashem. Your proud proclamation that you are beholdent to your ego which drives you meshuga to obtain the "A" is outside the pale of acceptable Jewish lifestyle and mindset.

Just wanted to let you know my away message had linked to this photo so all my law school buds can learn from it ;-)
