Hello, people who drink instant coffee, even when there's freshly brewed coffee right in front of them. :)

Six whole years I have been a member of this site, and it is almost unbelievable how fast time has passed by. It is a sad thing for me to sometimes see many members, but few to none of those I have spent my most dear moments with on the site. It's always sad to see a great generation pass, but that's part of life. I hope you all enjoy the time you spend here, for it can be used for great purposes, and the people you meet can mean a lot, one way or another. And, before you know it, many years will pass, and many people you felt were a constituent part of the good things about this site will be gone. So, enjoy it while you can.

One of my favourite beverages is Turkish tea. If you haven't tried it, you should. Look at it: http://traditionscustoms.com...

I just have some straight whisky instead of coffee.

But that's so true...all of that you've written. I've been on this site for already one year but technically I was only active for ten months because I got busy during the four months that I was not active in which is hence why I was not active.

We like artificial things (and are inherently artificial) even when a more natural and better option is just as easily attainable.

This naturally has been what has lead to the US becoming the strongest nation in the world, leading the world in technological advancement, and being a major proponent to social development. But we suck anyway, and don't you forget it.

Yes, yes it does. :) It's good you got it, because I wanted it a long time ago, which wouldn't have been good because I was very authoritarian. Lots of curse words would have been banned, which would severely limit the choice of words some members use in their posts. :(

Agreed. I personally like to slow brew Columbian coffee. It has just the right amount of cocaine in it.*
