WhippingBoy: Last time I checked, Twinings didn't include that flavour in their sampler packs.


But they *do* have decaf, which ... I'm thinking you might wanna try.

No real reason, just a hunch.

Isn't it fairly safe to say that at some point virtually everything women have done that wasn't housework was considered dangerous by some?

Tea drinking? I think not.

Radical feminism is caused by the indoctrinated belief that under no circumstances whatsoever should a woman be held accountable for her actions. Instead, EVERYTHING must be blamed on an oppressive, hegemonic, imperialist patriarchy that continues to go out of its way to oppress women and other "downtrodden" people (none of which can ever be straight, white men).

They also believe that a bunch of neurotic, irresponsible whiners with degrees in "Gender Studies" will actually affect lasting social reform by biatching about things on the internet, spewing feminist 101 rhetoric, hate-mongering, and shaming (disagree with what a "feminist" says? well then you sir are obviously a bigoted, racist, MRA rape-apologist!).

We've come a long way. I don't have a woman and I barely need one. Think about what it's like to be a housewife today.

I need my dishes washed. I put them in the dishwasher. I wanted a double sink in my apartment to make washing dishes easier and faster, but hey now I can have a dishwasher! If I got a woman, she could load the dishwasher. Previously, she'd have to spend an hour or so each day washing dishes--all that mess from cooking, serving, three meals a day, and with a family... families might have one or two kids now, but imagine five? Cooking for five is tough; cooking for five kids (means seven total) is insane, and then there's all the dishes!

I need my floor cleaned. I'm putting in hardwood, but still. At the baseboard will be kick vents, and on the walls will be inlet recepticals. In the basement there's a power unit to apply vacuum pressure whenever a kick vent is open, so I can sweep into it; I can hook a hose up to the inlet receptical and vacuum. Vacuum out the couch and curtains.

Washing machine makes quick and easy work of clothes. Hell, I use a WonderWash and high-spin dryer. The little plastic washing machine is good when I want a small load in a hurry (who am I kidding? I can do all my laundry in 1 hour, rather than babysitting the machine between 1 hour loads); with the spin dryer, even towels dry in about 10 minutes. That thing sucks plenty of water out even after the washing machine's spin cycle. Laundry day used to be a whole day.

You can get all kinds of scrubbers for things. I have a brush I put on my DeWalt drill that I used to scrub the kitchen floor, it kicks ass. The dirt I couldn't get rid of for years even with a brillo pad and 20 minutes of scrubbing just turned into a thick black goo that I mopped right up. Ten seconds and I've got a big swath carved up and ready to mop. It'll take me 20 minutes to clean years of grime out.

If you own a microwave, you can bake an inferior but complete dinner tray including vegetables, meat, dessert, everything. Mashed potatoes, turkey with stuffing and gravy, lima beans and carrots, and some kind of apple in syrup for dessert. A home cooked meal is better but this is a fair replica.

The only thing a woman needs to do is get on her knees for 20 minutes a day.

No, you're just a pussy.

Perhaps, but I do enjoy a pot of tea.

Real men drink coffee. I take mine Michelle Obama style - hot, black, and bitter.

Really? A beverage for which the greatest expression of its "delicacy" are beans pooped out of a cat? Nah, I'll pass. Rolled, dried leaves works just fine for me.

Really? A beverage for which the greatest expression of its "delicacy" are leaves picked by trained monkeys? Nah, I'll pass. Fermented, malted barley works just fine for me.

You'll never get an argument from me against fermented, malted barley. Real men drink fermented, malted barley. Sure, we can dally with coffee, tea, what have you, but I doubt you'll hear much in the way of argument against fermented, malted barley - and, let's face it, those who argue against it aren't real men, and can thus be discounted.


To drink fermented, malted barley is to drink an unfinished product, like the teenagers do. Real men drink Scotch.
