    Starbucks FTL. That i don't understand. The fascination for paying 4 bucks for a coffee.
    If I liked coffee, I would never buy starbucks. But, the reason their prices are so high is because they pay more to be environmentally friendly and to subsidize poorer farming in other countries that grow their beans. So, rather than just getting cheap beans from anywhere, they pay more to make sure the process is eco-friendly, that the beans don't have any harmful chemicals in them, and they help struggling agricultural economies. It seems like a bad business plan, but it's obviously working.

    Still won't go to them though.

      Or that the fact that it has become so popular drives up the demand for it, and they have absolutely no incentive whatsoever to lower prices. Wait till some new innovation comes out where you can make Starbucks-esque coffee at home, people catch on, and see if they still go the extra mile to use harmless beans.

      • Coffee is the shiznit. I drink decaff all day just for the taste and bowel movements.

        What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
        they get smoked.

            I'm not sure what it is. Maybe it has fiber in it or something? I know it makes me poop and fart like a madman.

            Drinking a pot of coffee the morning after a long night of drinking is disaster for the porcelain throne.

              Coffee and Cigarettes will both cause someone to poop sooner

                Yeah, i know cigarettes do. I've proven that theory countless times.

                • Smokeless tobacco ( Cope) makes you poop much worse than cigs. Its instantaneous.

                    My roommate drinks way too much coffee, so much so that he bought a coffee maker and an espresso machine.

                      they need an extra bowel movement or two in their day.

                        That's probably more from all the freaking dairy creamer they put in there. What's funny is that those drinks end up with like 400-500 calories for an 8 ounce cup.

                        By the way, Jamba Juice/Smoothie Factory/Smoothie King/Orange Julius fans? There is a Smoothie Factory about a block from here that I have a bunch of free smoothie coupons for. And my friend works at Jamba and hooks me up on occasion.

                          There's one at school, don't know the name but it's one of the middle two. Never had any of them, although i see a ton of people with their damn little cups. Add that to the list of things i've never saw a fascination with. Are they any good?

                            Fruit smoothies? They're okay. I think of it as more a treat than something to consume regularly. It's best to make your own.

                            • I get a fruit smoothie at a little coffee shop up the street occasionally. They make em right in front of you with real fruit n everything so they are actually somewhat healthy.

                              Sometimes at movies I'll get a couple of those mini liquor bottles n put a few of em in a big smoothie from the smoothie king they have. This old dancing azn dude is ALWAYS working there n its pretty funny.
