Woman Who Spent Government Cash on Red Bull Asking for More to Solve Health Problems from Red Bull

Red Bull should sue this woman.

    26 cans of Red Bull a day?!

    I would be more afraid of dropping from a caffeine induced heart attack than from ballooning in weight if I were that stupid. That stuff ain’t cheap either, especially when compared with regular soft drinks.

    • It is nuts!

        It’s the welfare culture. It doesn’t even occur to her that she’s doing something wrong or to take personal responsibility.

      UK price is about 1 pound per 250 ml can.

      • UCSPanther

        Which is roughly equal to $2 Canadian. Not what I would call cheap.

      A few years ago when I was the medic on a drilling rig I got called to the floor to help a 21 year old kid that had collapsed. The guy had had a heart attack and doctors later said it was because he had drank 5 Red Bulls in 3 hours. Needless to say he never went back to the rigs and that drilling company banned all energy drinks on their rigs.

        A Red Bull can has about as much caffeine as an 8oz cup of coffee.
        Two Red Bull cans has about the same caffeine as an 16oz coffee for Duncan Donuts.
        Did they ban coffee too?

        • barryjr

          Almost, coffee pots were removed from the company’s rigs. One coffee at the start of a 12 hour shift doesn’t go far. Your comment got me curious so I went and looked it up and was surprised at what has how much caffeine in it.

            I always thought that Red Bull must have some freakish amounts of caffeine in it, but it really is about a cup of regular coffee. The sugar content is compreble to orange juice.
            Really, it mostly marketing hype.
            Some cups of coffee can get as high as 240 mg per 8oz cup, which is approaching espresso. It seems the brewing method and types of beans used do make a huge difference.
            Red Bull, most soft drinks, and even lots of coffee (more than a cup a day) likely are not good for you.

            I wonder if that kid that collapsed on the rig didn’t have something else going on with him?

          • UCSPanther

            It’s possible. There was a story of an 18 year old kid who dropped dead after playing on an arcade in the early 1980s.

            An autopsy later revealed that he had some scar tissue on his heart, and the stress of playing an arcade game was enough to cause it to malfunction…

            That’s some really bad luck, but it happens.

          • CaligulaJones

            There is taurine in it too, which, according to the hype, is extraspecialgood. For what, not sure.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Taurine, “it’s what plants crave”!

    • Blacksmith

      The ballooning weight is probably from all the sugar etc,

  • Rick McGinnis

    I actually LIKE Red Bull and this is turning me off the stuff.

  • Exile1981

    I’m betting that she used her welfare money to pay for those piercings as well.

  • Blacksmith

    Woman? Says who? I aint seeing it. No I don’t need more pics I have certainly seen enough. Like Petey says below, personal responsibility.

    I got a laugh out of Bill Mayer when he tried to bash the Republicans as heartless and stupid.
    Bill seems to think that people on Welfare should have the right to get Body-art ( Tattoo’s ) with the tax dollars they get, he then went on to say the Taxpayers should also pay for the same person to get them removed so they can get a Job.

    Republican’s felt that the people making bad choices in life can not keep expecting OTHER people to bail them out.
    But Liberals and progressive only see the weak as victims once they suffer the end results of that bad choice from their Freedoms to make them as soon as they need others to bail them out .

    AIDS is now a perfect example of how the actions for getting it are ignored as that the taxpayers are expected to be there for the Medical costs best we aren’t suppose to judge people ( unless you’re a Liberal which do it every day) .

    Red Bull didn’t give her wings!
