my favorite college experience is when i had a 7am class and the kid next to me literally poured a monster energy drink into his coffee said “i’m going to die” and drank the whole thing
i knew a guy who brewed his instant coffee with monster instead of water. three cups in two hours. i think he ascended to the astral realm
the survivability of the human race never ceases to amaze me
Ok, science side of tumblr here to ruin everyone’s shock and awe:
8oz of typical hot-brewed drip coffee has of 163mg of caffeine.
16 oz of Monster Energy Drink has 160mg of caffeine.
So basically, these trail blazers had TWO 8oz cups of coffee.
A typical shot of Espresso has 75mg of caffeine.
Starbucks lists their Venti brewed coffee as containing 415mg of caffeine.
Everyone is impressed with these dudes for mixing Monster with Coffee, which sounds utterly vile, but derides girls for drinking their pumpkin spice lattes.
The girl with the Venti Pumpkin Spice coffee with an extra shot is significantly more hardcore, in terms of caffeine consumption, than the above dudes.
omg I love you never change.

On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.
Oh my God, yes. Let’s talk about Noor Inayat Khan.
- Wireless operators in France had a life expectancy of six weeks. Noor was actively transmitting for over three times as long.
- While she was in France, every other wireless operator in her network was slowly picked off until she was the last radio link between London and Paris. It was “the most dangerous and important post in France”.
- She was offered a way back to Britain and refused.
- In fact, in her transmissions to London, she once said that she was having the time of her life, and thanked them for giving her the opportunity to do this.
- She was captured by the Gestapo, but never gave up: she made three attempt escapes. One involved asking to take a bath, insisting on being allowed to close the door to preserve her modesty, and then clambering onto the roof of the Gestapo HQ in Paris.
- Her last word before being shot was, “Liberté!”
The term BAMF was coined for such persons.
Her entire life, and her mother’s life as well, are FASCINATING. A Royal, Muslim, Anglo-Indian woman in WWII… Could we have a sweeping FACTUAL movie please. Like now?
Yet another story I would like to read.
You guys! There IS A MOVIE!
Enemy of the Reich: The Noor Inayat Khan Story
SERIOUSLY WATCH THE MOVIE. IT IS AMAZING.
Maybe it won’t work out. But maybe seeing if it does will be the best adventure ever. — (via lostinamerica)
