Just take Brookfield seriously. I've been here for a while, so I know what he's like, but I sometimes wish he did have some sense of humor...
Heh, just kidding.
About energy drinks, try getting one bottle of Bawls and one tin of Bawls mints. Pour all the mints into the bottle of Bawls and shake it up to mix it up. Then drink it all.
That's what my friend did at a LAN party.
