Depends, where I am currently posted, in the summer, I don't drink that much coffee because it is light at 5:00 AM, but in the winter, it gets -20F and is dark until 10:00AM so I pour in down.

The colon has the refreshing and amazing ability to absorb caffeine.

I don't think it counts as contributing to a long life if you drink it for hangovers.

I drink it all day long at work. Not so much at home on the weekends because I make it very strong thus only needing a cup or two. Straight black, no cream or sugar.

Happy Birthday Andini!

I cannot stand the smell, let alone the taste of coffee. It is disgusting.

FYI, I do all my internet activity from 6 feet under, so I suppose their findings must be true. It is really DARK down here. I'd go crazy if it wasn't for the internet. I've already clawed so long that my fingernails are scraped to the bone. Thank goodness the inside of the lid is satin and not slate.

Hard to say, but by the way they measure it, 20+ cups a day. Z-I-N-G-!

I need a refill. The tell me this stuff has a lot of antioxidants. I knew some antibaptists once, I got on with them OK as long as we didn't talk politics. Speaking of socialism, did you hear France has a new President?

I would like to drink your coffee every morning..and I don't think your cups are too small either!

Not certain if the study factored in urination. Frequent urination might actually be why coffee appears to help with living longer.

I used to drink an entire 12 cup pot from home and then refill my travel mug once at work. Now I'm down to 2/3 of a pot at home....8 cups. Guess it is time to up the coffee again!

If that is the case, Willard Scott will be showing my picture when he is 136.

And you thought you were getting a pint of beer. Ha Ha Those are 'pub glasses' and only hold 15 oz. Nobody has pint glasses.

The sun should still be here for another 4 billion years, about the time the Andromeda galaxy and the Milky Way are expected to collide. The sun will however begin heating up (already has) as it dies and the earth will become too hot to support life in 500 million years or less. It is estimated that 12 to 60 life ending events could occur on earth long before the sun burns out.

Makes for a longer life, eh? I should be good to go for a bazillion years or so. Sure hope we find that next perfect planet before the sun burns out.

That torques my shorts also. A cup should be a cup whether it is coffee or tequila or canola oil. 6 oz. is not a cup! It is just like when the spousal unit's car speedometer goes to 160 mph, but the damn thing wont go faster than 110 unless you flash the ECU, then it tops out at 134 mph. Why do they put a speedometer in that goes to 160 mph? Why do they call a coffee maker a 12 cup coffee maker if it only makes 7?

I drink about 4 liters of brewed coffee a day.

None anymore. I get too jittery and start flopping around on the rocks. I should have had the Leavenworth Bankside stuff instead of the Lakestop stuff.

autie 1 year, 11 months ago

oh...about four to six a day I reckon. The best coffee is sthe fresh brewed Bankside Leavenworth blend.

Wow LJW . . . I would think a Senate rejection of the presidents budget by a 99-0 vote might be newsworthy.

What do you mean by "cups?" Measured cups or a regular coffee cup/mugs which is two measured cups. I drink four mugs or eight cups
