Good quick read about several energy drinks and their secret ingredients.
Besides the heart-throttling levels of caffeine and sugar, just look at the virtual medicine chest of exotic, unregulated, plant-based ingredients that pervade today’s popular energy drinks. These herbal potions offer a variety of semi-medicinal, completely not-approved-by-the-FDA benefits like stress reduction and increased blood flow to the groin, plus a high to rival whatever’s in the average adolescent bong. In the interest of good health and maybe child safety(?), we present the weirdest stuff they’re putting in energy drinks these days.LINK: http://www.vocativ.com/02-2014/new-teen-gateway-drug-energy-drinks-secret-ingredients/

I've created a seamless texture of a B&W image for your enjoyment. No real hidden image, but still fun to look at... for a few seconds at least.
This Seamless Tileable Texture (Wallpaper) is made by Patrick Hoesly and is released under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

How did you make it?
This texture was made using software specially designed to aid in seamless texture creation. Some of the tools I use are Photoshop, Illustrator, Filter Forge, Genetica, Image Synth, Alien Skin, Topaz Labs, Allegorithmic and even good old fashion hand drawing/editing.
What is a Seamless Texture / Pattern?
A seamless texture is an special image, where one side of a image exactly matches the opposite side, so that the edges blend into each other when repeated. Seamless textures are used for desktop wallpaper, webpage backgrounds, video games, Photoshop fills and in 3D rendering programs.
