Too late to drink coffee or too early to drink alcohol?

Recommended Posts

This is so true. Today dry sherry with cheese won at 4:30pm

The bad news is that alcohol should only be drunk when the sun is over the yardarm.

 

The good news however.....

 

SUN OVER THE YARDARM - origin. The expression is believed to have originated in the north Atlantic where the sun would rise above the upper mast spars (yards) of square sailed ships around 11am. This coincided with the forenoon 'stand easy' when officers would go below and enjoy their first rum tot of the day.

 

Note to joey24dirt

 

Some where in the world its always after 11am.. so open the bottle, charge your glass and propose a toast to "past 11am somewhere"

Haha. That beats me looking at a bottle of malt and contemplating a carajillo at 10am...

Just like Alcoholics Anonymous but one where you get encouraged to drink at 6am

Just make sure you use plenty of lube that could be an embarrassing trip to A&E :whistle:

Yeah I'm not so sure this was such a good thread to comment on. On the other end of the scale I can have a flat white at 11pm and go to sleep half an hour later no problem?!

Think I read somewhere before that coffee takes 5-6 hours to get out of your system. So you should adjust accordingly for your bed time!

Better still...a double espresso and chuck a Brandy in it (once the Sun is past the yard arm of course!!). Best of both worlds!! :coffee::liquor:

I had read that caffeine in the coffee can affect you differently at different times of the day because of hormone levels I think it was. Something to do with your body producing this certain chemical during the day at regular times throughout the day.

Yes i think I my have read something similar, stating the optimal time to have coffee is not first thing in the morning, but at 11am and again at 2-3pm. I can only last about 1-2 hours after getting up before having one, otherwise I'll have a horrendous headache.

or drink before bedtime and go sleep before the caffeine kicks in :)

 

tbh even if i have caffeine in my system i sleep ok, just gota turn the tv off and put the phone away, if i put my head down and close my eyes i will fall asleep

 

most insomnia issues these days are caused by people using their phones late at night, the blue light stimulates your brain to keep you awake, but then they say they are not tried so stay on their phones, put it down and go to sleep, it's simple

Another situation I get is the shot must be that strong with caffeine it will make my lips tingle and I talk funny for about an hour lol

Presumably you get a similar effect with the gin
