    I did it......

    I got this thing in the mail yesterday, one each, my wife and I.......
    It had boxes to mark off, we did, first time in over 12 years.......
    I already took them to the drop off box.
    If you knew me, the GREAT procrastinator, that was a HUGE change of behavior.

    Do it too......

        Wait, people still bother with Decaf?? Funny fact... There are several processes they use. One is that they don't really take the caffeine out of the coffee, they take the coffee that has been roasted too much and can't pass QC process, then they roast it some more to kill additional caffeine in it, then they grind it and they add a compound that neutralizes caffeine. Another is that they use Methylene Chloride or Ethylene Acetate to soak the beans in to remove the caffeine.

        Either way... fascinating stuff.

      Few years ago I visited my parents. Crashing headache for days. Tylenol didn't do a thing. On day 3 I looked at the coffee jar. Decaf.... I jumped on a bicycle, raced to the store and got some proper coffee. 10 minutes later the headache was gone. Coffee is a terrible drug, I am glad DOT allows (and encourages) its use....

          If he feeds them the proper mix of coffee and sugar, those pot will come up in a hurry. Of course, there is the problem of managing them when not employed pulling the pots....

            It's not the coffee it's the caffeine which is a stimulant. Trying to quit caffeine cold turkey whether knowingly or not will give you one big time headache. I once decided to quit Pepsi cold turkey. A couple of days later I had a pounding headache. Actually was worried and went to the doctors. Mentioned that I had quit Pepsi. He said go out and get a Coke or Pepsi and drink it and your headache will go away. Did that and sure enough headache gone almost instantly.
