I read the title and thought Mountain Dew was bringing back their gamer fuel flavors. Way to disappoint, OP.

To answer your question anyway, Pepsi.

Skittles and Red Wine

(though not at the same time as the sugar in the skittles tends to make the red wine taste bad).

chocolate bars and milk.
For the record though stay away from four loko. Its 5 beers and 2 5 hour energy drink in 1 can. Not a good mix and people have been getting violently sick from it.

Four Loko is being pulled of the shelves. They're removing the caffeine and a few other ingredients, as the Federal Drug Administration is planning to ban it altogether. It's already banned in four states and has resulted in a crap ton of lawsuits .

Fox news aye? believe 20% of that.
But yes some ppl are pulling it off the shelves but not all. They should ban it and stimulant and depressant is a bad mix. It really messes you up.
unless it bailys and coffee. Good ole irish mix :3

lol not really. bailys and coffee is much different then four loko. bailys isn;t really a beer. Its a liqour, and irish put it in their coffee for YEARS. it part of an irish breakfest. Which contains steak, mash potatoes, 2 pancakes, 2 sausages, and a muffin. (watch anothy bourdain in Ireland.) Also my family is from county cork. Wish we stayed there well rather that I was born there. Scenery is breath taking and enjoy road bowling.

Generally, decaf. Vats upon vats of decaf. I usually drink two 10-cup pots per day, so if it wasn't decaf I'd never sleep. I'll occasionally have a glass of milk or juice now and again, but if they amount to 10% of my fluid intake I'd be surprised.

"Starbucks" and "yum yum" don't go together. I'd rather drink late night Denny's coffee that's been sitting on the burner for 8 hours or so.

Friends don't let friends drink Starbucks.

I had a $5 hot chocolate from starbucks once. That was expensice sewage. all I tasted was nasty hot water. its like they put in 1 tiny scoops of cocoa mix then hot tap water. yuck.
so I agree friends don't let friends drink from starbucks.
Also noted I also love new england coffee, the hot fudge flavor and fresh heavenly donuts. Nothing beats a freshly made warm donut. The shops down the street makes the donuts on site. And you can watch them make it. And i mean home made not shiped.

Depends on my mood.

Usually I am gaming at night, so I have a glass of mead or scotch with me. Snacks vary. After that glass is done, it is water or tea. I am not a heavy drinker, but I like having a glass a night.

Liquor is still a depressant, coffee is still a stimulant. Whether you've done it for years or not, it's still hypocrisy to condemn one mixture of a depressant and a stimulant and laud another.

I have a kegarator and a wife that will be ****** off if I wake her up (my main play day is friday night into saturday morning, my day off and not hers). So I have a few beers and fight sleepiness as long as possible. If I go to bed before midnight she won't be upset. If I go to bed within an hour or two of her having to get up, I'll wake her up and she'll be mad 'cause she can't fall back asleep...

SO, usually I fight a few-brews induced tiredness and push through til around 5am... otherwise I'll face the wrath of said wife. Of course I could sleep in the guest room or on the couch, but that's not nearly as much fun.

When I did marathon sessions in XI I found that ice water worked better than coffee for me, only down side was I had to afk to wee a lot.

How many times do you have to be told that bragging about being a pothead doesn't win you friends? I have 0 problem with people who partake even though I cannot because of my job. However I have 0 tolerance for those who have to mention every other conversation(post) in (what I percieve) order to make people like them.

I know it sounds so contradicting since I mentioned I have a beer or two while I play... and before you say it yes I know what's healthier for you.

I know people who pop xanax or other benzodiazepines during long starcraft 2 or halo sessions/tournaments when the adrenaline is gushing.. but for ffxiv, really?! i would think the side effects farrrrr outway the benefits at this point.. if you really want to sedate yourself why not just craft continuously for 2 hours? =P

There are a lot of "fuels" mentioned that are a combinations of stimulant and depressents. Don't you ppl get headaches the following day when you introduce these kinda contraditions to your body? My only experience with a mixture similar to those was red bull + vodka and they always give me the world's most head splitting headaches the following morning.

personally, i drink tons of water to force myself to get up every few hours.

funny i have like 500 post thats only the 2nd time ive mentioned that.. you have a serious obsessive problem bro.. need some xanax? i got plenty


anyway ffxiv doesnt excite me to the point of needing xanax. thats more for the sugar rush from the big red and if the various munchies are sugar stuff.. candy ect. instead of chips ect..

alot of sugar u get a sugar crash but if u pop a xanax while on a sugar rush it slowly mellows you so you dont crash and fall asleep suddenly face first on keyboard

years of ffxi taught me the right mix

Yeah, I just looked... that's at least 3 of us. (Maybe more that haven't mentioned it)

Could it be we all smoke them because they're about the cheapest brand that still taste like cigarettes rather than flaming trashcans? :P
