As morning people, we consume our fair share of caffeine, but to have enough to actually cause “caffeine poisoning” is next level.
Illinois basketball star, Matthew Mayer, consumed not one, not two, but SIX Monster Energy drinks in one day because, it’s obviously a busy time of year for college hoops, but also he likes a little “caffeine-induced haze” for video games (because that’s fun?).
Mayer ended up missing practices because of it and learned a valuable lesson out of an extremely unpleasant feeling.
