In case a no coffee age comes what will happen to the coffee producing farmers in the third world ?
What could they produce instead ?

I am ready to join an unofficial no coffee and no smartphone league.
Even without having read all the material collected and posted by Mr Gloominary.
Don't get me started on cell phone and computer radiation *laughs.

The world needs to re-wild itself, unfortunately there could be some casualties, but it has to happen, civilization isn't at all sustainable at present.
Back to nature, yes.

Instead of listening to music records from the internet or the radio, we can sing ourselves, whatever tunes come to our minds.

Simple does it.

What humans are doing is natural, it is what humans are evolving into. The world is changing and there is no going back. If you really don't like technology, why are you using a computer? Go back into the woods, live by your self and let everyone else do as they wish.

I always smile about people who rail against technology on a computer, they are real hypocrites.

Working on my third (and not last) cup of the day.

About to have (another) cigarette.

There is a difference between eating one chocolate egg at Easter and a bar of chocolate every second day.
There is a difference between drinking a bottle of Scotch every evening and a glass of wine once in a while.

Up to a point technology can foster my humanity. Most people dehumanize themselves by using it excessively.

For some people smelling coffee can be enough. It´s not necessary to drink it oneself.

Go for it! Nothing wrong with coffee or caffeine. I would be drinking coffee all day long, except that it upsets my stomach if I drink too much. I used to have my last cup each day right before I went to bed at night, I never had a problem sleeping.

Just finished #6 (had it with lunch).

Not jittery, or psychotic, or deranged, or delusional, or any of that crap Gloom sez comes with heavy coffee-drinking.

And on the off-chance that mebbe I'm too coffee-addled to accurately self-assess I asked Leon what he thought...Leon sez I'm doin' just fine.

I'm heating up the water for mine right now, I'm currently using a French Press. Though to be honest I make my own blend, which results in 50% less caffeine, not because I don't like or can't handle 100%, rather sometimes it seems to raise my blood pressure higher than it should. But I'm confident that when I get down to my optimum weight, it'll be 100% again. ;-) BRB, it's whistling just now! ;-)
