I'd much rather enjoy a cold glass of milk any day.

Coffee or milk isn't really the choice I was making, though. I wanted a caffeine source, and since most milk I'm familiar with isn't caffeinated, it was coffee or Red Bull, haha.

If the end goal was "enjoy the taste of what I'm drinking," I wouldn't go with coffee. I wouldn't really go with milk there, either, though. A cold Pepsi is where it's at for me.

...Unless it's strawberry milk. Then I'm down.

Agreed, Cowboy, black coffee has numerous health benefits.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to say that coffee is really bad for you, just that it doesn't offer any benefit that makes it worth getting over a distaste for it.  I don't drink colas or any sodas or energy drink.  I avoid caffeine as much as possible.  I also find co-workers and friends that make a big to-do about not being able to start their day until they get their coffee annoying.  I'm always surprised by the number of coffee drinkers that need to announce their intent to get a cup of coffee.  Who else would be interested? Maybe I should be posting on the rant thread now.

Wasn't there a story just last week about some sates passing a law that would require Starbucks et al, to print a cancer warning on their cups?

It's just small talk.
It isn't really about the coffee at all.

That's what I always assumed that kind of talk was.  People crying out for human connection (even in the smallest form) in an otherwise endless sea of deafening silence.

With the current topic of coffee, addiction, and cliches, I feel that this is now relevant:

Who has had their morning coffee then?

I'm on cup 2. Illy, yum yum!

Black and strong for me. Occasionally a splash of milk when I get an urge for something lighter but it doesn't happen often.

Do not Google Image search "women in a cup" in order to post a witty photo in response to Dave's comment.

Good coffee - black.
Average coffee, however, can be used as a substrate for cream and sugar.

I have to use milk and sugar. I can drink black coffee if it's good, but I still prefer it mild, partially for taste, but also because I can't handle pure, unadulterated caffeine.

I like my coffee without any sugar. And without any milk. And without any form of coffee. And I like it cold, but not too cold. :p

My rambling for the day.

Sort of related but also not about anyone in particular.

I feel really torn when it comes to disagreeing with people on the internet. It's often pointless/silly but sometimes I really want to. People can be so ridiculous.

I remember when I first joined this site, I said something stupid and I got schooled.

It changed my perspective a bit, even though I was only half a year in I felt like I knew it all. So the slight telling off really brought me back down to earth.

So yeah...I dunno.

Also I just love a good row, especially when I can win.  ;D ;D :laugh: :laugh:
