Caffeine is a "base analogue" of Adenine, and in fact can sometimes be incorporated into a growing internal linkDNA chain, instead of Adenine.  Caffeine is a weak mutagen, for this reason.

basically, our current  economy legitimizes this legal stimulant and gives it away free at the workplace.  the effect is to "stimulate" you into being more efficient and productive, "stimulating" the economy.  this is why pot, which relaxes you, heals you (the medical INDUSTRY cannot prescribe it yet), and makes you less violent (no need for the paid police force to break up fights.  that's why alcohol is okay and perfectly legal). internal linkecstasy makes you happy and communal, and touchy feely.  nothing dangerous or money making in that. ILLEGAL. internal linkhallucinogens takes away eyeballs from advertisements, distracting you from billboards and tv commercials.  not to mention the internal linkboundary dissolving effects it has on one's internal linkperception - how the current system is so utterly backwards at this point.  can't have that. ILLEGAL.   the legality and illegality of chemicals has nothing to do with health.  it has everything to do with taxation and money.  if we become complacent, then we don't work, or even want to. (that is why power suited cokeheads pay exorbitant amounts to snort shit up their nose - so they can feel more confident and productive).  luckily for me, i don't like working, and i don't even smoke pot.  what i do like is time to myself, without some middle guy coming in and swiping a share away from me.  my time is spent NOT making money which takes it out of the current system.  when i go to work, i load up on the stimulant caffeine, and labor for a few  hours. when i go play, i load up on more interesting visionary substances, currently illegal (how can anyone make a fungus or plant illegal? it's like making poison ivy illegal) but incredibly safe compared to crap like beer, alcohol (i don't touch that shit - i equate it with heroin), cocaine...basically all government sponsored and imported drugs.   i definitely have my personal decisions, and that's just that - personal goddamn decisions.  so go get stoned, drunk, and shoot up if you have to.  make your choices. no one can completely abstain from drugs.   - @Om* 3/25/00

Coffee has become a religious experience.  At least that is how the folks at internal linkStarbucks and the Family Christian Center in Munster, Indiana feel.  The church is the first in the U.S. to open a Starbucks in its lobby. Religion has always been drug pushers of the legal stimulant caffeine.
