      Oh don’t worry. This WordPress trainwreck that’s been inflicted on the site has stopped us!

      We strictly spy on the YouTube comments at AdoredTV now (and you wonder why the Chinese are taking over).

    Coffee Conundrum…
    I think with the Millenials spending so much on specialty coffee. Not such a big deal. I mean you need to treat yourself. And Millenials have a heck of alot of other issues in their lives to deal with.
    But limiting yourself to a few big ones (large Coffees) per day is probably a healthier option in the long run. However with all the conflicting coffee consumption health studdies, that have come out over the years. Its hard to know…

  1. Any Atlanta-area gerbils (Nanoflower, Ryu Connor…) want to meet up at Desta Ethiopian Kitchen for weekend lunch or any night dinner? The city’s best Ethiopian restaurant also has pizza, LOL.

      I don’t always believe that ROUS exist.
      But when one jumps on me, I prefer to press F.
