Many years ago, as I was on t.p.d on usenet, there was a debate about the number of chemicals in certain things, and how little we know how they
synergise, hence why medical so and so never really worked for people.
Coffee, I read, has over 400 chemicals in the beverage. But then as I was in IRC one night babbling to fools and freaks someone challenged me on that
fact. I could not for the life of me find it again.
But I read it and it was not on a blog (blogs didn't even exist much back in 95/96, wikipedia was unheard of, google was a good search engine, deja
news stored usenet posts in an archive and the internet was fascinating, compared to the bland tepid pool of murky crap it is now) and it was indeed
from a reputable source as I was fact finding to fight against ignorant politically correct neanderthalls that would justify slavery because "IT WAS
so, somewhere someone knows this also, 400chemicals.
One day they tell us caffeine is bad for the heart (it has no noticable effects on hypertension however) and to limit our daily intake, and then they
tell us that it's good for the heart and more cups per day is in order.
I knew a cop once who told me that if he had his way, tea and coffee would be illegal.
Imagine you wake up in the morning, and bam.. no java to kick start those first morning doldrums into motivation.
But I drink about 4-5 cups a day, in a soup mug, with 3 heaped teaspoons per cup. and nothing beats sitting down with a turkish grinder and grinding
manually by hand your own fresh beans, and making turkish coffee. It's like MUD, but god damn it's wonderful java!!
