I feel like my coffee abstinence has been validated.

Actually, as basically the guy in these videos, the lesson to be learned here for me is that the world needs to be more accommodating of coffee drinkers -- or perish.

Also, I get a special kick out of bumping this thread to the front page every time I post in it. BECAUSE I AM A CHILD.

(I hope I don't get fired.)

I blame the cat.

And the "Funny Games" ending is cute too.

most definitely a first world problem in which I am totally victimized. I am merely a coffee drinker so don't judge me. Kiss

kind of related -- at least in the coffee vinicity (and it posts the thread back on the homepage, much to CF's delight):

How the Hum of a Coffee Shop Can Boost Creativity

The site, called Coffitivity, was inspired by recent research showing that the whoosh of espresso machines and caffeinated chatter typical of most coffee shops creates just the right level of background noise to stimulate creativity. The Web site, which is free, plays an ambient coffee shop soundtrack that, according to researchers, helps people concentrate.

Yeah. Gotta love those learning games. I like holding back on the sugar just to watch them throw it up on the sidewalk.

I gotta tell ya, I'm really digging this coffitivity thing. It's a new way for me to feel like I'm interacting with society when in fact, I still don't have to talk to anyone. Cheers to the internet.

One more post about that deluxe white noise app and I will ban you for spamming, Kaitlin. You and your fucking coffitivity.

Just remember never to turn down a cup of Wilkins coffee. Ever. Or Kermit will murder you.

Tales from our baristas:

O’Connell, like most of the other baristas I talked to, said he’s proud of his profession and there’s nothing else he’d rather be doing.

“I just developed a patience,” he says, “a liking for it.” O’Connell wakes up at six a.m. every day so that he can ride his bike and be on time to open his shop at seven. “The hours were never an issue,” he says. “I’m used to it. You just kind of button up and get into it.”

“A lot of time you’ll get the question, ‘What else do you do besides coffee?’” says Brye Roth, a barista at Southside Coffee in South Park Slope who has been making coffee in New York City for nearly a decade. “And for people who think, ‘Oh, barista, that art school degree must not have gotten them anywhere’ - screw those people.”

"The Coffee Shop Series" are short unusual and surreal stories that happen to “Carol” in Coffee Shops. Carol just returned to Portugal after living in New York, where she studied Visual Arts. Now that she’s back, she’s trying to decide which art to master. What we see is that she goes to a lot of cool Coffee Shops

Here's one fellow who really enjoys his coffee.

Really, um, peculiar account, to say the least.

Hrm. Funny, then disturbing. That's Twitter for you, I guess.

No coffee enemas, at least.

Ha! I was going to post something in the other thread, but decided it wouldn't be fair to fans of that unfortunate condiment.
