    How about having some mate while listening to Soulfly? Contrary to another post that said mate is relatively mild, I've found it very high in caffeine. And Soulfly is very high in aural stimulation--you might get some interesting positive feedback going <grin> I've found both mate and Soulfly too intense for my old age . . .

    Is a beverage like mate (like tea, like coffee, etc) a meme or is its use a meme? It's role in the society where it is used? (as with coffee's close association with sociability in US society?
