Subject: RE: BS: Red Bull Energy Drink - Anybody tried it
The trick to making a fortune is to invent or mix up something that is cheap to make and completely useless, set the price by multipling the cost of manufacturing it by a factor of 1,000, then convince the world that it can't get along without it. There are eleventy-umpteen such products on the market (by actual count).
I rarely drink soft drinks, for example (unless it has a shot of rum or somethng in it). If I'm thirsty, I prefer water, or sometimes fruit juice (made from real fruit). I go along with the sage who said, "I'll drink Coca Cola when and only when I find a fresh stream of it flowing down from the mountains."
Red Bull? Yeah, bull!
