    this is pretty stupid...the body can only absorb a certain amount of a vitamin per day, so 70 lemons worth of vitamin c is stupid, you'll just piss out what you can't absorb

    Thanks Mr Science! You are so smart!

    when you hear Coke bought it, it confirms your suspicion that it was unhealthy

    much less stupid(and health detrimental) than chugging down 150 calorie of simple sugar (~37.5g) in one sitting. That's about half of the recommended daily limit of added sugar.

    Lets just put it this way... Drinking more than about 8 oz of water when you are "thirsty" but not "dehydrated" (there is a scientific difference) is pretty stupid too, since your body won't absorb it and you just piss out what you don't absorb.

    Actually, drinking more water than you need is bad for you. It "flushes" out all the stuff you need. Thins out your blood, and can cause a host of problems. Basically, the point is this, who gives a crap. The argument that more vitamin C is wasteful is dumb. It doesn't hurt anything. More sodium than you need is actually HARMFUL, but you don't see anyone pointing out that you shouldn't drink too much Gatorade. Stop nitpicking, fool!

    I just thought they might have wanted to say 70 lemons on the front. Good marketing Ploy.

    Also I really didnt dig the CC Lemon. I dont know why, maybe too much lemon?

    If you piss out the remaining Vitamin C, then it ends up in the ocean, and, through the water cycle, it ends up back in the drinking water. Then people drink the water and prevent scurvy. So actually, drinking that much Vitamin C is not only not stupid, it's actually being a good world citizen.

    Yeah but then we can't have proper pirates shouting "Avast ye scurvy lads!" because it won't make sense anymore... think of the pirates!
