How to abuse Coffee

This is very, very cool.
A neuroscientist has written a guide for getting the most out of your Caffeine buzz. For people like me, who subsist on a pot a day, this is pure gold. His big points?

  1. Moderate your intake to small, frequent doses.
  2. Aim for tasks that caffeine improves performance, avoid tasks that it decreases performance.
  3. Consume Caffeine with the correct adjuvents.
  4. Know when to go without.
  5. Use the right sources of caffeine.
Go ahead and click on the link to get his full advise on each point. I think I'll make this mandatory reading for all my incoming grad students. It's far more useful than handouts on PCR sterile technique. ;)
