Damn, now I am a statistic
It goes on to say that the idea is to improve focus, concentration and stamina.
-- makes me hungry, then sleepy, have been known to fall asleep while munching; focus is a bit strange (have you ever really really
looked at the kings, I mean, like, wow!) -- not great for poker
-- I dunno officially -- makes my friends all hyper, talky and ****y and makes them think they are very clever altho they sound pretty stoned & stupid to me -- none of this sounds like a good plan for poker
-- I dunno officially -- makes pals hyper and cranky, awake but thought processes are a bit off
Energy drinks, red bull, coffee,
etc -- works good for awhile
Take breaks, take walks, stretch --
helps a lot, especially if you use the time to refocus and think
Having an attractive person either slap or tickle you
-- wakes me right up
