A serious case of caffeine overdose

The Guardian

By Oliver Burkeman

If you stand on the corner of Regent Street and Wigmore Street in central London, you are within five miles of 164 branches of Starbucks. This is a fact that is liable to provoke sudden dizziness, followed by a deep, soul-corroding fear for the future of humankind, sending you scuttling to your bedroom to throw yourself, sobbing, underneath a pillow - although this won't help much either, since that pillow itself is within five miles of 158 branches of Starbucks, if it's my bedroom you're in, which, now I come to think of it, I hope you aren't.
