    this just in ...

    People who drank more than seven cups of instant coffee a day were three times more likely to hallucinate than those who took just one, a study found.

    Anyone who would drink more than seven cups of *instant* coffee a day would probably be hallucinating even without the coffee.

    I didn't know you could have visions with living people.
    It's a little secret you didn't know about us women. We're all closet Visigoths.

    I find it rather fun to be hopped up on caffeine. I should switch from soda to coffee so I can hallucinate.

    You can have visions with anyone or anything you want! That's the fun of it!

    I'd fix myself a cuppa but the giant bugs are scaring me out of the kitchen.

    Yeah, not so much. Ever. I can only conclude that the study applies to coffee in any form....

    I dunnoh. Wouldn't instant coffee have some nasty chemicals left over from the process? Or concentrations of chemicals that you wouldn't get from brewed? What is in that stuff?

    According to the article, this 'research finding' was based on 'interviewing 200 students'. Hmmm....sounds highly scientific! Did they even bother asking if the students regularly binged on booze, drugs, or had more than 3 hours of sleep per night?
    And don't students hallucinate whether they drink coffee or not? Ah, the good ol' days....


    I remember we only had instant coffee in the house when i was growing up. Until I hit about 25, I honestly thought that was the way coffee was supposed to taste.

    I'd rather hallucinate about people stealing my bikes than have to down even a cup of Folger's crystals.
