    Brain matter keeps heat for a bit. So you just see their mouth area generally.

    I metioned laser pointers in the other thread but other than that I have never really bought anything stupid online. I did buy some ebay coilovers once but they where on for maybe a week or two. I needed something that would get me to work and the price was right.

    why are we keeping this out of NWS anyway?
    doesn't that get more traffic than ML?
    are we allowed to mention a box of dildos in the ML or is that gonna send this thread back to nws?

    because if it's in NWS, someone might post a pic of some titties. I browse HS at work a lot, and I don't want to see titties while I'm at work.

    And yeah, I probably make too much money.

    My parents run a coffee shop and I still don't drink coffee or espresso. Go figure.

    I don't really purchase things that I don't need online... most of my impulse buying is small, cheap shit at the store.

    Edit: I drink espresso 2x a day.

    I dunno if I want to floss the rear of the Fit. If I do, I'd better do it soon before the paint fades.

    not drinking starbucks is nothing to be ashamed of... their "coffee" tastes like shit... ive been to several starbuucks' all over the place and they all taste like they burnt the shit out of the beans, then brewed the coffee too strong... then burnt the hell out of that... then tried to water it down to correct their fuck up... the only way their coffees are even tolerable is when they dump asswads of flavor syrups in them and top them with mountains of whipped cream so that it doesnt even taste like coffee any more... to which i must ask "whats the fucking point??"
    the only people who "like" starbucks are the simple minded assbags that bought up the marketing that told them "this is what coffee is supposed to taste like... this is coffee for sophisticated people... if you dont like this you are not sophisticated enough"
    thats why they go in and order their, tall/grande/venti, half caff, nonfat soy, choco-frape-mocha-caramel-latte-machiado, in the most pompous manor they can conjure up... they do this to feel sophisticated
    basically people "like" starbucks because they are stupid
    its like paying $80 for a bottle for Boones Farm and acting like its great wine

    I agree. But at that, all coffee/espresso is served like that in washington. With all that extra shit.

    Me, I get a latte or americano. Once in a blue moon I go for a mocha on a very very cold day and get it with a quad shot.

    Straight espresso ftw. It's even better if I have lots of time before something, and I'm able to put like 20 shots of espresso in a thermos.

    "Triple vinti latte"
    or
    "triple vinti mocha".

    I used to order that shit every day, several times a day. I totaled the reciepts in my console one day.. In one week I'd blown $90 on starbucks. I haven't been back since. You're right. Its shit coffee. But the caffeine level can't be denied. Its great for working 90+ hour weeks.

    Now I work 50 hours and kill a redbull for a boost.
