Homework for H1 students

I was looking for a nice video I promised you and I thought about Kuba and his coffee-drinking. Obviously, I had to go with this stuff 🙂

Now, that’s your hw: I want you to watch the video, understand what the girl says (shouldn’t be THAT difficult, but hey, that’s how real people speak) and write a short summary. Check the additional questions, please and be careful while doing science 😛

Caffeine!! – Bite Sci-zed

Have a nice Easter and see you on Wednesday 🙂

Oh, feel free to use relative clauses in your summary 😉

  1. Coffe – foreign, addictive ( Every year we eat/drink about 120.000 tons of coffeine – it is addictive isnt it ? ) drug. Why is it addictive we may ask. ( I have got 6 from chemistry. I should tell something smart ). I think that we should concentrate on the main reason of “entusiastic” effect of coffe – caffeine.
    Caffeine – psychoactive organic compaund. We may meet him at coffe, tea, cola and even in cocoa. How it will work on human ? First we will start be more entusiastic. Our blood will be faster. We will have good mood. You wont feel so tired and it will help your “short” memory. Unfortunetly it has disadventages too … what I wanted to say ? eeeee yes hmm … our long memory wont be happy of too much caffeine. You might be a little scared ( It has Anxiogenic. And this smoething scary about caffene:

    I found sthg more intresting about caffeine. In our body process into three diffrence compaunds.
    Paraksantyna – it will give you more ( God damn ) fat acid ( <— there are only a few things which i hate in chemistry it is one of them )
    Teobromina – it makes our blood vessel weider
    Teofilina – something used in curing of asthma

    Everything have adventages and disadventages. Drinking coffe wont kill you and in small parts it may help you. And I still prefer tea 😉

    Adenozine – sthg makes you sleepy
    Anxiogenic – this will make you scared

    1. Seeing caffeinated spiderwebs explains my brain (or lack of it) in the morning 🙂 Fortunately, I don’t drink more than a cup per day 🙂 Many tanks for giving more info – awesome (fat acid? seriously? o.O), I will give you the corrected version on Wednesday (you might have used spelling check, really ;p).
      Cheers and see you ^^

  2. Well, Artur … I think I shall just think of the positive aspects of coffee and ignore the rest? Because coffee in all its wonderful varities is simply divine – and yes, I’m addicted and I don’t care about the ‘fat acid’ – yet 😉 So I think now is a good time for a nice cup of coffee – as the adenozines will make me sleepy, right?

  3. I definitely should have checked my spelling in this essay.

    “I think I shall just think of the positive aspects of coffee and ignore the rest?” As it is a rhetoric question i will not answer it.

    Unless i will…

    Is it me or this statement sounds quite… communistic, doesn’t it? “We will drink more coffee in name of revolution and ignore casualties!”

    “[…] as the adenozines will make me sleepy, right?” That’s were biology begins, i am out.

    Don’t remember anyone named “Silke” in class though…

    P.S. Well, some would say i wasn’t particularly enthusiastic in answering these comments. Surprise, surprise.

    1. Artur, is that really you? Oh gosh, oh gosh, oh gosh 🙂 fb me, let me know how’s life? Hope you’re fine 🙂
      Well, as far as I remember, you weren’t overly enthusiastic generally, but your sense of humour made you an unforgettable student of mine 🙂
      Glad to know you’re alive 🙂
