Well, when during my senior year at MIT, I averaged about 4 liters a day of
diet coke during the term.  And after I graduated I started drinking regular
coke instead.  Would that count?  One thing that people seem to be forgetting
(although some have mentioned it) is that most people get their largest
dose of nutrasweet from diet cola, and caffeine causes headaches, mental
disturbances, motor disturbances, withdrawl symptoms, etc.....
