    What he said. I usually have one in the morning and one after lunch (which is just the best thing ever).

    Twice I've given up caffeine because of the promised sleeping and energy benefits, but noticed no difference. I don't really feel the positive or negative effects associated with caffeine. So back on the horse I went

    Daily. I try to stick to half-caf these days. In fact I'm having some right now (french press).

    Usually on the weekends when I have more time I break out the Chemex. It looks like a chemistry beaker. A seriously geeky way to make coffee, but it makes a great cup of joe.

    I drink about a cup a day with milk and sugar in the winter.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I don't think they took into account the undistributed middle either in their eagerness to prove a contrary point. Or set up even adequate controls. This kind of "research" is a waste of funding...

    To elaborate on what I believe Wildcat meant:

    Our study shows that we don't gain an advantage from consuming caffeine - although we feel alerted by it, this is caffeine just bringing us back to normal.
    Subject == Caffeine consumption, the effects of
    Dichotomy == Consumption is advantageous vs Consumption is not advantageous
    Object == Bringing back to normal

    Object (what they take as the conclusion, whch is in itself questionable due to the factors I've already mentioned) has been conflated with the premises of the dichotomy they were trying to establish. They are saying that caffeine consumption is not advantageous because it simply returns equillibrium to normality. This, however, represents a failure to define what was and was not to be considered advantageous in advance of the "experiment". The conclusion has actually defined the criteria for the original dichotomy they were supposedly testing, thus robbing it of any possible validity. They're essentially saying "We set out to find whether caffiene consumption was advantageous or not. We carried out our experiments, then when we had the results, and not before, defined our criteria for determining whether or not it was advantageous. The category for non-advantageousness was therefore framed in advance as 'Whatever the results of our experiment are' "

    No, people, just NO.
