1) From: Alchemist John
In humans, it is 50-80 mg/kg.  In rats where they actually had test 
subjects that could die, it is pegged at 75 mg/kg.  This translates 
to 3-5 grams of caffeine in an average human.  Somewhere in the 
ballpark of 40 double espressos at one setting, or two gallons of 
coffee.  Something like 1.5 lbs of coffee turned into drinks.
