Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Should have saved this poll for a woot-off!

I've been doing these london fog tea things. They are like normal tea, only it is socially acceptable to place copious amounts of flavored creamer in them.

This is when I actually remember to put liquid next to me during the 4+ hour midnight design fests. This is not often.

Low- or no-caffine soda and water (not mixed together, ew). Caffine knocks me out if I have too much of it.

Best part of living in South Florida - Cuban coffee. Pure caffeine and pure sugar. Got me through many an all night software troubleshooting adventure.

It's kind of a soda, kind of an energy drink.

I will never touch those five hour energy drink things again. I found out the hard way that migraine plus five hour energy shot equals night in the emergency room. *shudders at memory*

I no longer have all nighters (I have a 2 year old...there is no such thing as sleeping in or sleeping all day after an all nighter unless I really want to piss off my husband). But back when I did...would depend on WHY I was up all night. Hanging out with friends online...alcohol. Anything else...soda with caffeine. School work...add a middle of the night Adderall (I legitimately take it for ADD).

Me too! I thought I was going to pass out and I was shaking so much I couldn't move. I had to stay in bed the rest of the day. Not a normal "energy drink" experience.
As far as NOT life-threatening energy products, I used to drink BAWLS...lol... because I thought it was funny to say "I've got BAWLS", "I'm gonna go grab some BAWLS", etc... now I don't drink any caffeine really, I just go to sleep.

Wine and keep it coming power is something you get with a good nights sleep. Just don't wake up with a cheep wine fog it is worse then an all nighter of gaming hopped up on energy drinks.

And don't forget the se# it just makes it all good.

When I used to work the graveyard shift regularly, energy drinks didn't exist yet. Coca Cola or Mountain Dew were the shiznit.

Today I'm diabetic, arthritic, and have heart problems. If I need to stay up all night, I just skip my sleeping pill.
