My wife and I have been watching our friends' 9yr old son for the past week. I made the mistake of letting him drink a Mountain Dew at 8pm the other night.

Needless to say, I completely understand 'the parents' requests in this article.

He's a naturally 'high strung' kid to begin with... 'bouncing off the walls' is a complete understatement.

Long overdue, these drinks should only be available in Liquor stores - the damage all that caffeine would be doing to the kids developing kidneys alone should have authorities taking a strong stand.

Good on you Shop Keeper - definitely one of the good guys.

In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

If there's ever a 'next time', try the old "Does this cloth smell of chloroform?" trick.  It's tried and tested!
