Seven Cups of Coffee a Day May Lead to Hallucinations

(via Buzztimes):
"According to research in the UK, consuming the caffeine in seven cups of instant coffee a day may leave you more likely to see, hear and smell things that aren’t there.

Durham University researchers found in a study of 219 college students published today in Personality and Individual Differences, that people who drink at least 330 milligrams of the stimulant a day were three times as likely to have hallucinations as those who consumed less than 10 milligrams a day."
I have trouble believing this. As does the pirate and his pet giraffe standing next to me.

The good news is that I'm still far, far from the 77.66 cups of drip coffee that would be required to kill me.
