Oh neat, there's a really nice guitar part in the left channel during the middle 8 that I'd never heard before

You can hear Van Diemens Land in the background of WUDM?

Now, I'm going to have to try and hear this carrot stick thing

That cordial would probably send me into one of these misery spells if I had one. My 16th birthday cake did it to me because it had too much sugar in it. It was so sweet that it made me sweat as I ate it.
I don't typically (or never did) get on sugar highs. It never affected me.
Yikes! I just don't seem to respond to stuff much at all, whether it's sugar or booze or whatever. I remember once when I was trying to stay up very late (4am when I normally went to sleep at 10pm), I had a glass of fizzy drink at about 3am when I was this close to falling asleep and for a couple of minutes actually felt a slight surge thanks to it.

Oh, and I do respond far too much to those nasty energy drinks like V and Red Bull! Give me one of those and I'll probably go walk around the block twenty times without building up a sweat.

Yeah. I can't remember exactly when it is off the top of my head, but it's buried deep in the mix. There's LOTS in WUDM's mix, and it pretty much shoots holes in the "they had insufficient time on Pop" theory. Either they're just being revisionist twats with their own history, or they wasted far too much time on WUDM at the expense of everything else and only have themselves to blame for poor time management!

Yeah, it's a pain in the arse. It depends on what the source of the sugar is though. Carbs, for example, don't tend to do it. So I can eat as much rice and stuff like that as I want without a problem. But straight sugar from cakes and stuff will do it if I've had too much. Again, must stress that it does take a little bit for it to actually happen, so I am pretty convinced I deserve it when it does!

When I was still a soda drinker, I was able to drink a can of soda and go straight to bed. Never kept me up at all.

And as for energy drinks? Those usually make me miserable. I never do bother with those. They don't affect me much except make me feel like I'm going to vomit for an hour or so.

Huh, now I gotta hear this while my movie is rewinding!

I never do listen to Wake Up Dead Man much, so I am gonna have to hear this.

You got a problem with talking to yourself?

(Actually, I am pleased to say that for all my postwhorishness, I have never gone on a lengthy spree of talking to myself on the threads like some have done!)

I have a new theory regarding the reasoning behind VDL's presence there.

VDL was written by Edge, and has a sort of desperate, although not directly religious feel to it. In U2 by U2 they said that Edge was the one who came up with WUDM and wrote the opening lines while depressed after his separation from his first wife.

So you can kind of see the connection there, to have this depressed, angry at God song, and then buried underneath it, a plea of 'hold me now, oh hold me now'. Also, in the middle 8 Bono's essentially telling you to listen to the hidden message underneath the music

Huh, that's weird, and a pain. I just have to watch out for egg, myself. If it's just one egg thoroughly mixed and cooked through something big like a cake, I'm fine. But if it's six eggs, then I have to be a bit careful.

Yeah, same here. Unless I am astonishingly tired like in that example and actually pushing myself to stay awake when my eyes want none of it, I don't feel any effects from fizzy drinks. But energy drinks can go to hell. They taste nasty and they make me feel so restless that I end up pacing everywhere if I can't actually go out for a walk.
