    Just goes to show what I always say, having a degree =/= having common sense. Hope that fine is going to the victims of this f***ing retarded incident as compensation, as they'll probably have cardiovascular issues for life now.

    You would think they would know the safe daily amount, which is 400mg. Wonder how much compensation that was worth.
    £400k I think.

    Agreed.
    I suspect what it was was a lot more than the equivalent of two cups of coffee. No idea if they still sell it to the same strength as they did back in the 1990's. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced before. [And I drink lots of strong coffee; about five or six cups every day]. That's like drinking tap water in comparison.

    Wasn't it the researchers who ****ed up, not the students?

    You have no idea where they got their degrees from.

    Yeah the researchers ****ed up, but the students still ingested 30g of caffeine.
    the students are also sport scientists as mentioned in the article.

    A doctor tells someone to take a certain drug, they get bad side effects. Who do you blame, the person who administered the drug or the person who took it?

    I'm sure if they knew that they were being given 30g they wouldn't have taken it. This idea that they are somehow to blame for the position they found themselves in is absurd.
