    Cool I'm James Bond on Red Bull

    What does that sentence say? No more clues. Sorry

    Thumbs up Re: I'm James Bond on Red Bull

    Well, James Bond: handsome, athletic, clever, cunning, deadly, with a voracious sexual appetite; Red Bull: improves stamina and energy...could be a dangerous combination.

    Thanks a lot, but let me ask you something more on that. How would this dangerous combination result? As a letal person, or as an athletic lover? Or are both meanings OK?

    Thanks

    Well - without context it could be either or both

    Re: I'm James Bond on Red Bull

    I'm pretty sure SB is right to suggest that the two ideas (dangerous/athletic person and energy drink) are unrelated. But it's possible that the writer knew these two facts:

    James Bond drank martinis mixed with vodka.

    An infamous drink (popular in some circles, but banned in some pubs in the UK) is Red Bull mixed with vodka - which virtually guarantees violence.

    Re: I'm James Bond on Red Bull

    That quote comes from a film called Code Name: The Cleaner. Cedric the Entertainer wakes up in a hotel room with amnesia and believes that he is a spy. But not just any spy - a revved-up extreme version of James Bond. A James Bond who has been drinking a lot of Red Bull.
