Boss Beans

Recently our old coffee machine broke – and not a fan of doing things by half our new machine is a beautiful example of modern Swiss engineering.

As we all know caffeine is a central nervous system and metabolic stimulant. In theory it produces increased wakefulness, increased focus, faster and clearer flow of thought, and better general body coordination.

I wonder how much code would have been written, and how many dissertations completed, if it wasn’t for the wonders of this mysterious alkaloid.*

Although with this said, be warned, ingestion of large amounts of caffeine leads to tolerance and to a condition known as caffeinism. So it is a good idea to take a week off coffee every now and then – otherwise coffee just stops working its magic.

    You inspired me to have a “decaf week” myself. Just started today. I wonder how long I can keep it up… ;)
    (BTW: I’m a great fan of your work!)

    I’d love one of these. Does it come with an IV-line setting?

    (BTW … as my uber-marvellous nephew Dan will tell you, I am a paid up member of the Grammar Police. So … *its, not it’s.)

    Now that I’ve embarrassed Dan, my work here is done. Have an nice day, y’all.
