Hm, I fail at embedded youtube. Again. Why is this hard?


Hm. Interesting, now you just stick the link in and it auto-embeds it instead of needed the YT quotes. OK.

A standard cup of brewed coffee has more caffeine than a single shot of espresso. The belief that the reverse is true results from espresso having a higher unit volume of caffeine, which is offset by the much larger volume overall of a regular cup of coffee.

And the fact that roasting destroys some caffeine. Espresso beans are almost always darker roasted.

Edelweiss is not the national anthem of Austria, but is in fact an original composition created for the musical The Sound of Music. The actual Austrian national anthem is Land der Berge, Land am Strome (Land of the Mountains, Land on the River).

The historical Buddha was not obese. The "chubby Buddha" or "laughing Buddha" is a 10th-century Chinese folk hero by the name of Budai. In Chinese Buddhist culture, Budai came to be revered as an incarnation of Maitreya, the Bodhisattva who will become a Buddha to restore Buddhism after the teachings of the historical Buddha, Siddhārtha Gautama, have fallen out of knowledge.

Chicken sandwiches are not copyrightable, according to the US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit:

http://media.ca1.uscourts.gov/pdf.op...-1698P-01A.pdf
(contains subtle federal judge humor.)





This will be my last post from my present location in the hick suburbs of the Hudson Valley. I hope to resume activity shortly from more accommodating surroundings.

Until then, I leave you with this:

Many berries (black, rasp, blue) will generate plasma arcs in a microwave. Stinks like an SOB.

It is a common misconception that Joe is a robot this week.

Are you giving it away/selling/giving it away again?

For a free car I'd consider flying out there to pick it up and driving it home. Driving cross county in a Miata sounds like fun, and I've got a metric buttload of vacation stacked up.

<p>It is common, in Arizona, to heat swimming pools in the summer. Otherwise, the evaporation&nbsp;rate&nbsp;makes the water too cold for enjoyment.</p>
