That's interesting; I was under the impression that caffeine's
dehydration abilities would only kick in if you drank quite a lot in a
day (i.e. more than perhaps 6 cups of coffee). You imply there are
different sorts of caffeine.
I prefer to live a caffeine free life; so if I do need to stay awake
(e.g. when driving) Coke has quite an impressive effect.
