oof, watch out. I'm emptying my inbox. And in the process of doing so, I'm going to come across a bunch of things I saved because I'd want to be able to reference them later ... so I'm transferring all said information to my log instead, which is where it belongs, really ...

We'll start this process off with something fun, namely some caffeine info Perk emailed me long ago.

According to the National Soft Drink Association, the following is the caffeine content in mgs per 12 oz can of soda:
