I used to be a demon coffee drinker and then I suddenly stopped. Later I thought I'd try a cup of coffee after about 6 or 7 months' of weak-tea-driven coffee abstinence and, within ten minutes, I got serious palpitations, sweats, flashing tunnel vision and felt really disorientated and hot wired to a death trap.

So this question is very close to my heart. How many cups of coffee would I need to drink to actually die of caffeine poisoning? Is it even possible?
