(c) The authority figures train the kids to be early and late retards,
tru games, publications and tv.

The article does not mention if she had other drinks (of the highly
caffienated variety) or if she had eaten or not etc etc

Interesting.

"cannot stand the sight of coffee"

But, but English girls (and to a lesser extent blokes) are world renowned,
apparently, for being binge drinkers but that doesn't put them off alcohol.

It does for the next morning (unless they subscribe to the "hair of the dog
what bit you" theory). I suspect our victim will recover her taste for
coffee as well after a while.

There is an urge for excessiveness in human nature that has to be throttled
or it will kill you, or at least send you to the emergency ward. It is a
natural logical flaw - a little of X is good, so more is better and a whole
lot more is better still. This is nothing new. What I think is new is that
(a) kids today have more access to "X" of every kind and (b) there are fewer
respected role models (parents, teachers, ministers, etc.) to whom kids will
listen and actually believe and obey when the authority figure tells them,
don't overindulge in X.
