Bonus from drinking coffee- I don't cut to ribbons the first person who annoys me.

That list applies only to those who drink a cup of coffee every hour on the hour.  For those who drink a couple of cups a day, you might get a mild headache after 36 hours. . .maybe.

You can get my coffee when you pry it from my cold, dead hands...

There are some convincing arguments for lowering coffee intake, but I nursed my latte through that whole trite, slapshot article.

I don't drink coffee, but I will be the first one to offer you a cup.

I got really bad with my espresso maker, only when I came to empty the hopper did I realize I must be throwing back 12-15 a day. Plus tea. But it doesn't really do anything until I stop. Then I get lethargic for a day or two, then I get better. No headache.

If I don't get my coffee I start to go over all Communist. Two days without and I am braying for the blood of the parasite class.

I swear this genuinely is 100% true.

That's why I crush the beans up instead and do a couple of lines of coffee in the morning.

No wonder you're an asshole.

Can someone call me when it's healthy again?

Also, are eggs still healthy, or did that change too?

Glad I only drink one cup a day.

I can function without coffee, in much the same way as an internal combustion engine can function with a broken water pump: Not for very long and not at peak efficiency.

However, there's a happy medium between this:

Hahaha! Don't shoot the messenger. The universe is clearly sending the following message: "No one's going anywhere." Not my fault you don't listen and prefer to substitute sci-fi to reality.

I'd rather be an asshole than the kind of naive, wide-eyed idiot I recall you to be.

I'm the same only with freebase cocaine and a broken lightbulb. Er, I mean caffeine.

During a vacation in New England recently, I drank more coffee over the course of a week than I have all year. There's something about cold weather and Dunkin Donuts coffee that just goes together.

The new pumpkin donuts don't hurt either...

Well, I presume you substitute idiot for holding different points of view than you, which is fine. There's a difference, though, in disagreeing and being unecessarily abusive to anyone who disagrees with you.

FTA It can make hard workers slack off says one University of British Columbia study. The University of British Columbia did a study in which it gave 40 rats amphetamines and caffeine. The amphetamines made lazy rats work harder and hard working rats more lazy. The coffee, on the other hand, did nothing for the slackers. It didn't do anything for the workers either.


Journalistic standards and reading comprehension have gone WAAAAY down since what I get from that is coffee does nothing.

I don't care if coffee is bad because I enjoy drinking a lot of it.

/2 cups a day
/no, I will not be cutting back

It doesn't count if the coffee is in Frappuccino.

You can have my coffee after you pry it from my cold, dead, still jittery fingers.

I knew someone who used to buy one of these every morning and drink it all himself.

Sure, but so far, flapping your arms really fast is self-demonstrably a false belief. Belief in the unknown, or at least an unwillingness to rule out the unknown? So far, we can neither disprove nor prove it. It does not make you an idiot to believe there's more to the universe than we can observe right now.

I've lost most of my faith in gods and beings that directly affect my life. I haven't stopped believing that there's more out there than we understand.  And belittling people is not the same as teaching them. You think you have the superior position? Educate and convince. Don't just hit people over the head with it.

Nothing you do counts if the coffee is in a Frappuccino.

If drinking too much coffee at work is really an issue, just water it down a bit and fool yourself into thinking you're drinking the same amount.

I'll wait for you to stop laughing.

Kit Fister: It does not make you an idiot to believe there's more to the universe than we can observe right now.


But it does make you an idiot when you believe that this "unknown" is somehow the future of the species and that everyone must leave this rock... That's a religion. Suddenly your "unknown" is actually just a rehash of all the tired old Space Age propaganda and fantasies.

Fine, it's "unknown". But so far, we have a HELL of a lot of "knowns" that point to one conclusion: "No one's going anywhere".

Pretty much everything on this list is common knowledge, the only one I didn't hear of was the liver thing which is scary since it's my hangover cure since you can't take acetaminophen.

I used to drink a cup before going hiking, but soon discovered that it makes me have to poop RIGHT NOW, about 15 minutes into the hike. That means it's 15 minutes back to the car by the time you realize it. And then another 10 back to the house.

So I only drink coffee when I know that I'm going to stay home.

Coffee has kept me regular all my adult life. I drink 2 cups in the morning before getting ready, and I never have to crap in a public toilet.
My coffee mug is 10 Ozs, and I usually get a 20 Oz at Sheetz. That 40 Ozs per day.
