A post I made and then lifted straight from FPC (see what you’re missing?):
Friends, FRC and FPC fans, this may be the most important post yet. I glimpsed this article just now: Coffee for Introverts??
Anyway, they write:
A new study of 2,000 coffee drinkers in the United States found that those who prefer cold brew or iced coffee are more likely to travel and to be introverted. They are also more likely to prefer warm and sunny climates and binge-watch science fiction shows.
In contrast, hot coffee drinkers tend to be more extroverted and prefer comedies. They also like overcast weather and listen to musical artists like Taylor Swift.
This isn’t a judgment call on anyone (except maybe my email spam filter); if you’re buying Freedom Roasters, we’re happy. But, these findings are suspect. I had a conversation with a friend, yesterday, and it came up as to whether I’m a very gregarious introvert or a mildly-misanthropic extrovert – jury’s still out. I like the sun and traveling (or did, pre-hoax) but I like the java hot, strong, and black [inset pun]. I also like cloudy weather, accept some comedies (like the current “administration”), yet I detest both sci-fi TV and Taylor Swift’s “music.”
They also mention something about adding soy and milk to coffee??!! If “soy n milk” is a brand of Scotch with which I’m unfamiliar, then that’s one thing. Otherwise, WHAT?
I thought I’d share this alarming or enlightening news with the discerning crowd. What say you, preppers?
This ramble brought to you by FRC Espresso.
Is coming from Freedom Prepper.
This Friday, there’s a new video/podcast presentation coming. I’ll have the link just as soon as it’s ready.
And, okay, it’s two treats from FP. The other one is something you can (and should) drink. More on that when it’s brewed.
PS: Thanks for everything! Today, this month at the blog became the highest-traffic in October in three years! In a day or so it should beat January for the best month of 2020. Next month, I’m aiming for 12 visitors and 9 page views!
Hey! They embedded a question in a headline: Diet drinks linked to heart issues, study finds. Here’s what to do[?]
Drink water, even if it’s carbonated. Water is the perfect hydration for the human body, experts say. If it’s not your favorite beverage, try to add some sparkle.
Better than “sparkle,” try adding some coffee beans and heat. To that end, I will soon have a major, tasty announcement.
PS: Congrats to all who want to shed the weight. Phenylalanine ain’t the answer. 1) Eat less, 2) move more. 3) drink water, with or without coffee.
Go ahead and have that cup of coffee, maybe even several more. New research shows it may boost chances for a longer life, even for those who down at least eight cups daily.
In a study of nearly half-a-million British adults, coffee drinkers had a slightly lower risk of death over 10 years than abstainers.
The apparent longevity boost was seen with instant, ground and decaffeinated, results that echo U.S. research. It’s the first large study to suggest a benefit even in people with genetic glitches affecting how their bodies use caffeine.
Overall, coffee drinkers were about 10 percent to 15 percent less likely to die than abstainers during a decade of follow-up. Differences by amount of coffee consumed and genetic variations were minimal.
The results don’t prove your coffee pot is a fountain of youth nor are they a reason for abstainers to start drinking coffee, said Alice Lichtenstein, a Tufts University nutrition expert who was not involved in the research. But she said the results reinforce previous research and add additional reassurance for coffee drinkers.
“It’s hard to believe that something we enjoy so much could be good for us. Or at least not be bad,” Lichtenstein said.
There you have it: “Coffee is the fountain of youth.” You probably already knew that. I’m sure this woman is still alive thanks to coffee:
A South African woman was mistakenly brought to the morgue and stored in a fridge after she was declared dead following a car accident.
The unnamed woman was discovered breathing by a morgue worker who was reportedly writing a report and checking on the body, according to TimesLive, a South African news site. The Distress Alert paramedics who brought her in said that she had shown “no form of life.” She is currently being treated at a hospital.
The fountain of youth and it also revives the dead.
This morning I woke on time and actually felt good, great maybe. I plugged away for about three hours and then it hit me – a sluggishness with an underlying sick feeling. I suspect it might be the coffee and the powdered doughnut I drank and ate conspiring with or against my summertime diet. I think they call it a sugar crash or something. Then there’s the threat that’s been brewing in the back of my mind for three days.
I’m going to keep going. A real breakfast and a trip to the gym (arms and shoulders today) will cure the tiredness. I specialize in dark threats; soon that brooding menace in my mind will be worrying about me.
Moving on is all you can do. With anything.
Nearly fifteen years ago I was in D.C. I was standing in a ballroom at the Mayflower talking to Steve Forbes. He had just given an inspirational address on the sorry state of our monetary policies. Then, as now and ever, those policies are ruinous. His inspiration came from how he approached the topic.
Even a connected and educated billionaire is a small thing when set against the monolithic evil of central banking. He was (and is) in the know, understanding more acutely than most what’s wrong and what it is doing to our country. He knows the windmills must be tilted though failure seems assured.
I asked him what we, any of us, could do to make a difference. He answer was amazingly simple, “Just keep hammering away.” He told me it wasn’t really about winning (though that would be nice); it’s about the fight, about doing what’s right no matter the outcome. Just because they’re evil and they keep winning doesn’t mean we retreat or concede – ever.
For old times sake, let me now wield that hammer: the Federal Reserve, its practices, its supporters, and beneficiaries are all pure evil. They are the bane of freedom. They need to be destroyed. There, I got that out of the way for the morning.
Now it’s time to cure my coffee hangover.
You? You just keep hammering away at whatever it is you’re facing today.

*Ads ahead: caution…
Ah, Sunday morning! To hear Johnny Cash (or Ray Stevens) tell it, one should be feeling alone right now. I’m not, even as I am, so to speak.
Sunrise, coffee, a morning cigar, and a perusal of the (usually slow) news of the world. Sunday is generally the only day worth reading a hard-copy newspaper anymore and, then, only one section:
I’ll add that, today, in these four strips, there’s a high degree of political incorrectness and a touch of rebelliousness. Almost as refreshing as coffee.
Happy Sunday morning, world.
