I weigh 175, so it would take;

149.30 cans of Red Bull and SoBe Energy Cirtus to kill me,
151.19 cans of SoBe Adrenaline Rush to kill me,
and 71.95 cans of SoBe No Fear to kill me.

Yeah, caffeine is as much of a drug as cocaine...

Click here, and enter your weight and energy drink of choice, and it will tell you how many you'd have to drink to die! :_

the LD_50 for caffine is 10 grams....

a standard red bull has 80mg of caffine...

10 grams is the equivilent to 10,000 mg

10,000 / 80 = 125

that means if half of PSU drank that many red bulls in an hour, it would kill about half of us.

is it possible to od on redbull... no... now if you iv'ed a redbull, that could kill you...

You'd have to drink upwards of a hundred before you got into the realm of possibly killing yourself, but I doubt anyone could even manage close to that without throwing up.
