The setup:

You're feeling under the weather. Figures, it's January, deep within cold and flu season.

You stumble towards the bathroom, heading right for the medicine cabinet. Opening it up, you come across an epic battle.

On one side, NyQuil, the green liquid of death. Known for knocking a large man flat on his behind by just looking at him. Not a med to take when planning on doing anything.

On the other side is Buckley's, "It Tastes Awful. And It Works". Known for tasting like liquid fire, mostly blamed on its pine oil content.

Two cold meds enter, one cold med leaves!

Honestly NyQuill isn't that deadly. :P

Dunno never managed to knock myself out after taking it. I feel like I've been discluded from some club. :O

I get knocked out faster with liquid NyQuil than with Buckley's. The tastes are about equally bad - NyQuil tastes like candy gone very wrong, while Buckley's tastes like BURNING.

It may taste like burning but at least I'll know that I will be better soon!

Gotta go with Buckley's here, though that might be personal bias talking. The taste of Green Death tends to linger while the taste of Buckley's is rather fleeting, as far as I remember. Plus I've found that Buckley's tended to work a lot faster and has never made me feel sickeningly woozy.

Then again, I was always more of a fan of taking a Sudafed or two. Though last time I took that I ended up having hallucinations for a few minutes, so I've since switched to Tylenol Night and Day. Not as effective, but at least I won't be seeing little Nintendo characters jumping on my bed again.

Buckley's is like the old grizzled veteran that totally pwns the alcohol induced youngster (NyQuil).

That's right. Even the old can pwn.

Buckley's. I spent most of my childhood either bed ridden or damn well close to it due to severe colds and bronchitis, I had robotussin and antibiotics and inhalers and crap--none of them worked like the horrifying Buckley's.

Made me WANT to get better so I didn't have to take anymore.
