I'd be more concerned with the sugar and fat from their drinks, esp the milk shakes, than the caffine content.

The small boost in caffine won't cause as many problems as a beverage that can have double the sugar of a candy bar and a shockingly high amount of fat.

Though if you already have a heart condition that can't handle extra caffine, then you shouldn't be drinking coffee in the first place.

I feel very lucky to not be a coffee fan because that amount of caffeine would probably mess me up.

...but wait! You forgot your 3 to 4 cups of BEVERLY there, M-dude! :shock: :roll: :wink: :lol:

If you did all that and then got blood sucked by a vampire, the vampire would get headache from all the caffeine and hangover from all the tequilas (and a nasty aftertaste from all that BEVERLY too)...
