I'm saying that no rational, un-biased individual, would read this flyer as applying to coffee transactions. It very clearly applies to people using cash to purchase computer access. Its common knowledge that terrorists use Internet cafes for anonymous Internet use.
Another intermediary step in the Internet revolution that is now obsolete is the Internet café. It used to be that these cafés lined the streets of various urban locations. They were trendy new "it" place to be seen while sipping a latte and checking your email. For those who are simply too young to remember: an Internet café was a store that had computers inside of it that you could rent by the minute to access the Internet. Sometimes there was a proper café area as well, where you could order a coffee or a scone to munch on while you browsed the net, you had to be careful with the keyboards, of course!). But now that you can buy a small laptop for $300, and then take it to any library, café, or airport and get online with no trouble at all, these Internet cafés are simply irrelevant. What´s more, in most public and private locations, you can access wireless Internet for free! Article Source: EzineArticles.com...

OH MY GOD!
Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.
Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.
This planet has—or rather had—a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
And so the problem remained; lots of the people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches.
Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans.
And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, a girl sitting on her own in a small café in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place. This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything.
Sadly, however, before she could get to a phone to tell anyone about it, a terrible, stupid catastrophe occurred, and the idea was lost forever.

Oh snap - I wonder what they would say about people who actually make coffee at home!
Do people still do that, with Starbucks on every corner?
