I drink coffee because I love the taste and it prevents me from killing people.

Pretty much why people don't list me along side Vlad the impaler and yes I freely admit caffeine is a drug and I am addicted to it. :coffee:

When I was younger and angrier I had this memorised off by heart for whenever I heard people say god works in mysterious ways.

“There's nothing mysterious about it, He's not working at all. He's playing. Or else He's forgotten all about us. That's the kind of God you people talk about, a country bumpkin, a clumsy, bungling, brainless, conceited, uncouth hayseed. Good God, how much reverence can you have for a Supreme Being who finds it necessary to include such phenomena as phlegm and tooth decay in His divine system of Creation? What in the world was running through that warped, evil, scatological mind of His when He robbed old people of the power to control their bowel movements? Why in the world did He ever create pain?”
