Blessed caffeine - what's the lethal dosage on this stuff anyway...
"The LD_50 of caffeine (that is the lethal dosage reported to kill 50% of the population) is estimated at 10 grams for oral administration. As it is usually the case, lethal dosage varies from individual to individual according to weight. Ingestion of 150mg/kg of caffeine seems to be the LD_50 for all people. In cups of coffee the LD_50 varies from 50 to 200 cups of coffee."
