Ever use Red Bull to get a set of wings?
Ever wonder what those wings are made of? Wired did, and wrote an interesting article called What’s Inside.

Least surprising result? Caffeine is the main ingredient in wings.
All the things this drink is supposed to do for you — increase concentration and reaction speed, improve emotional state, and boost metabolism — are known effects of this white powder, a distant cousin of cocaine.
Though it might not change your addiction to the little blue can, at least you’ll know what’s giving you wiiiiiiings.
