Always tired in the morning –

... more ... Caffeine


Coffeinated Spiders

but wide awake at night! For all you owls out there, here’s your hymn. Hearing this on the radio made my day, almost as much as the obligatory intravenous shot of caffeine before starting work.

What I didn’t know until now is that it has an effect on how spiders create their web (ah, so there’s a reason for posting this in molecules & networks) – question is if the the spider feels jittery and nervous or just a bit creative for the rest of the day… probably depends on the dose.

    Spontan eingefallen ist mir dazu:

    Party all night ~ and sleep all day

    was aber unter Umstände zu “3Tage wach” führen kann: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4dts4hO17Y

    Und am Ende nur “noch nen bisschen tanzen” : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcPXVPXAA-8

    Und wenn es am Ende der Kaffee nicht mehr tut, kann ich nur Relentless empfehlen:
    “Verabschiede dich von kurzen Wegen.
    Begrüße Schmerz und Schinderei.
    Niemand hat jemals behauptet,
    dass immer alles einfach sei.
    Deine Energie. Keine halben Sachen.”

    Als Aufdruck auf nem Energydrink spricht das für sich – und er ist weniger süß als die anderen Gummibärchensäfte.
