Btw, I hate the "drinking the kool-aid" cliche. You guys probably don't know but that phrase is a reference of a massacre in Jonestown, Guyana.

"In the Jonestown cult suicide, Jim Jones, the leader of the Peoples Temple, had persuaded followers to move to Guyana and found the commune of Jonestown. In November 1978, faced with exposure of some of his misdeeds, he had the visiting U.S. Representative Leo Ryan killed and ordered the residents to commit suicide by drinking a flavored beverage laced with potassium cyanide. Those unable to comply, such as infants, and those unwilling to comply, received involuntary injections. Roughly 918 people died."

Very off-topic, sorry about that but I had to say it.
Wow, I knew that story but didn't know that's where that saying came from.
