My mother once told me an interesting story about the high concentration of caffeine
in Mello Yello. You see my mother works as a guidance counselor at a high school
and one day a student was sent to the principal's office for "acting weird or drunken
and drinking in class". The can of Mello Yello that the student was drinking was sent to a police officer
at the school who promptly tested it to see if there had been any added alcohol
. He reported later that the tests were positive, but then a science
teacher pointed out that the high caffeine level had probably effected the test. The student was deemed innocent but given a detention
for disturbing class and the drinking of beverages during class.

I liked my writeup so I decided to move it to this node. If there is a problem with this I hope some mod would tell me and I'll promptly request to have it deleted.
