    Telling children they can be whatever they want will almost always be a good thing. Helping them reach those goals is even better.

    Kinda how I saw the 24 mile high skydive, too…cool, indeed, but one BIG commercial sponsorship.

    Good thing it was a successful jump. Otherwise itcould have flattened sales.

    profits would have fallen through the floor.

    It’s odd that Red Bull makes such a horrible beverage but sponsors great events that otherwise wouldn’t be able to get off the ground (pun not intended).

    What is Red Bull, anyway?

    Red Bull, the brand that made energy drinks hip, is about to offer something it’s never before tried: flavors.

    Today, the company will announce plans for cranberry-, lime- and blueberry-flavored Red Bull, to be sold in red, silver and blue cans, and launched in March. The line will be called Red Bull Editions.

    What’s an energy drink? Personally, right now I’d go for a beer.

    Red Bull IS caffeine, lots of it! As are the other “energy drinks”. Now, I think a good single malt Scotch is a better way to go! AND, it beats falling for all the ads that go with falling from space. (I do find Red Bull does sponsor “interesting things”, like a formula One team, air races, and other “adventuresome” activities that get folks off their couches!)

    One ingrediant in these ‘energy drinks’ is taurine which I find too bitter to be tolerable. When I worked at an AM PM store I tried these things out. Most people don’t need these things they are just replacements for cola and coffee.
    .
    Taurine is named after the Latin taurus (a cognate of the Greek ταύρος) which means bull or ox, as it was first isolated from ox bile in 1827 by German scientists.
    .
    Taurine is regularly used as an ingredient in energy drinks, with many containing 1000 mg per serving, and some as much as 2000 mg.

    A 2003 study by the European Food Safety Authority found no adverse effects for up to 1,000 mg of taurine per kilogram of body weight per day.
