Most of us can't even imagine getting through the day without at least one cup of caffeinated coffee. But according to the American Psychiatric Association, caffeine addiction is no joke. In fact, caffeine withdrawals have been officially named a mental health disorder.
Experts say that you'll officially be diagnosed if you suffer from three of these five symptoms: headache, fatigue or drowsiness, depressed mood or irritability, concentration difficulty, and flu-like symptoms such as nausea within 24 hours of not having caffeine.
To avoid dealing with any side effects or a possible caffeine addiction, doctors recommend drinking no more than 100 mg of caffeine per day – which is only about one coffee beverage.
Last night Paul McCartney was the one-and-only guest on a special hour-long edition of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report. Although the tongue-in-cheek questioning amounted to little more than the same sort of softball questions he's been answering about his tenure in the Beatles and Wings for years, it was good to see that the signature "Beatle wit" was still razor sharp, alive, and well.
McCartney was promoting his new reissues of his 1976 live album Wings Over America and the concert film from the tour, Rockshow -- which is finally available on DVD and Blu-ray. "Macca" and his band performed five songs -- four of which are featured in both his current show and the 1976 reissues -- "I've Just Seen A Face," "Hi, Hi, Hi," "Listen To What The Man Said" and "Lady Madonna." The odd song out was the John Lennon Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band favorite, "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite," which McCartney premiered on his current road trek.
Remember before cell phone cameras, when we just assumed fast food employees were doing horrible things to our food? But we could ignore the feeling because there wasn't proof?
Yet another photo has surfaced online of a fast food worker doing something disgusting behind the scenes. Last time it was a Taco Bell employee licking a bunch of taco shells.
This time it's an employee at Wendy's, who was photographed drinking a Frosty straight out of the machine. His mouth isn't necessarily touching the nozzle, but it looks like it's going to . . . and the Frosty spilling out of his mouth looks gross too.
Someone posted the photo online yesterday morning. The higher-ups at Wendy's found out in the afternoon and issued a statement saying, quote, "If true, this is totally inexcusable. We are investigating and will take action."
There's no word yet where this photo was taken. For what it's worth, the guy who posted the photo also posted a few months ago saying he lives in Michigan.
