is it possible to be a teachers’ pet while at the same time constantly undermining their authority because that’s how I’d describe my work ethic
this is how I describe all of 8th grade and some of those teachers are now really good friends of mine.

I took my girlfriend to an improv show the other night and during intermission we were passionately arguing over whether half a 5 Hour Energy shot would give you 2.5 hours of energy or 5 hours of half-assed energy so we turned around to ask the opinions of the three people behind us and one of them said “Are all your arguments like this because we heard you in the lobby earlier fighting over the right way to pronounce ‘egg’?”
So 1) Funny story. :)
2) I think the active ingredient of 5-Hour Energy is caffeine, which means the answer depends both on 1) the minimum dose of caffeine to achieve the effect from a full shot and 2) how long the caffeine lasts in the brain. Caffeine acts on adenosine receptors in the central nervous system, which means that half a shot doesn’t necessarily translate to half the energy; there’s a classic pharmacological study which demonstrates that maximum effect can be achieved with less than full receptor occupancy. I have no idea what the dose-effect curves for caffeine look like though, so I can’t say anything specific about time course or potency except that half a shot wouldn’t necessarily halve either. I’d look for more info because this is interesting but I have a paper to finish tonight.
