I ain't got no problem with that. Breasts for the win.

Vegetables are fine but boobs seal the deal.

I tried the breast feeding route, but she called the cops.

As I do in every study that shows a relationship between drinking coffee and some health benefit, I will suggest that the main benefit of drinking coffee is the fact that you are less likely to be guzzing down Mountain Dew.  People who drink coffee, on average, drink less Mountain Dew (and other sugary drinks), and that's almost certainly the major difference.

If you correct for the Mountain Dew effect, maybe you'll find that coffee does have some real benefits.  And I'm sure some of these studies do at least correct for sugar consumption.  But we don't know that, the articles rarely cover what factors they corrected for; you'd have to look into the methodology from the study itself.

For that matter, main benefit eating vegetables may be that you eat less* potato chips.

Yeah but most people put lots of sugar in their coffee.

Not me I drink it black. But most people do.

Wow, a fark snarker who makes up things about people to snark about.

I obviously do know the difference between fewer and less (and you knew that), I just don't care.  And recognize that the difference is the same kind of tightassed schoolmarmish prescriptivism that goes into rules like not splitting infinitives.  You don't own the language.  As for the study, well go ahead and guzzle down a gallon of coffee every day and tell us how it works out.  Until then, eff off

I thought you were making a clever social commentary that the only way to eat potato chips was by the handful, and therefore individual chips cannot be easily quantified.

I'll just double down on the breast feedings... those are my two choices.

So you're telling us that you're in the market for someone willing to breastfeed you now?

Pick two.  hmmm, I don't drink coffee and not a fan of vegetables, I think my choice is made
