I drink coffee but can quite anytime.
I am addicted to coffee and have physiological side effects when I do not drink.
I do not drink coffee.
Richard Alpert drinks coffee and it has made him ageless.
Richard Alpert drinks another herbal concoction that makes him ageless.
Richard Alpert drinks water religiously and it is distilled and filtered.
This thread is morphing into a Monty Python's Flying Circus thread!
Richard Alpert probably thought of Monty Python after he heard about Walt and the dead birds outside Room 23.
"This bird is dead."
"No, it's only resting," chuckled Richard.
Nice OD! I remember that. Kate has a great sarcastic face.

Omg. This thread made my morning cuppa even more enjoyable than normal!
Thanks for your message, Beatrice828! Welcome!
Several pages back, I discussed the art of reading coffee grounds. I must confess I am only a practitioner at drinking coffee, not reading the predictions and portents in the sediment!
Here are some pictures of one specimen from April 11, 2009. This was the result of two cups pf coffee. Any ideas, other than my anxiety about filling out U.S. income tax forms that were due in four days, would be appreciated. The wilder the better!
The cup I was drinking from was a Boleslawiec Polish Pottery cup pattern #56 Peacock.

Now...lets see.......this apears to be a message of great hope to me.....
up there in the uper right hand corner, it kinda looks like a baby inutro. I'm going to say this is the birth of the idea of richard alpret's coffee mug.
You can see the next set of grounds below it, are the building blocks into making said coffeegoodness a reality.
On the right, we have the coffee mug actuallized. Note, it is not as perfect as the "form" of the coffee mug, but it is still durable. strong. constant. like time, and richard alpret himself.
The grounds below it represent us, the loyal coffee followers.
Thanks, Beatrice! Those are comforting words of hope to coffee drinkers everywhere!
And the internet is a'buzz (no pun intended) with the question that affects our concepts of ageless Richard and his coffee drinking,
Did the ancient Egyptians enjoy and drink coffee?
asked by Paul W at
Bhagirathy joined in:They did. Even though many people disagree, some claim that coffee came from Egypt. My only source is an Egyptian friend that told me about it. So, there is no telling if the statement that coffee came from there is correct or even if it was enjoyed back then.
TheEmperor said emphatically:im a very big egypt fan.. i wanna be an egyptologist.. i have no idea as to the egyptians drank coffee or not, i think so beacause they slept less and worked a lot.
Then, elsewhere, brittany okalani cardoza asked on Tuesday, November 25, 2003, at http://egyptologist.org/discus/messages/32/10173.html?1141696958Yes, they did.
Egyptian's drank a hot breakfast drink, which now is the most popular drink throught the world today.
Any suggestions as to what reference books I can find this in.
Please Help !!!!!!

Hello Brittany, this hot "breakfast"-drink must be Tea ( and not coffee ! ). the old egyptians did not know coffee, because coffee ( starting from Ethiopia ! )in its roasted and water-boilded form was used since around the 12/13th century BCE ! the egyptian tea is offered in several ways: as BLACK TEA, boiled not too hot, very sweet, called SHAI,( another more modern form of black tea with milk is called "Shai bi-Laban" ), and a very popular tea as well is the MINT TEA, well refreshing, called "Shai bia na'ana" ! but some other herbal teas are offered at the same time, for example the cinnamon-tea, called "Irfa", or the aniseed variant, called "YASOON", or the "Helba"-tea, a yellow fenugreek variant ! surely the old egyptians knew some of these tea-variants, but the old egyptian hieroglyphic expressions (or words for something like tea), if existing, i myself do not know ! (sorry) greetings: Bernhard
Later, he added:Hello Brittany, .. a little Correction: the usage of roasted (water boiled) coffee first started around the 12/13.th century CE (not BCE !), therefore only around 800/700 hundred years ago ! i used to type in "BCE", because we here are mostly talking about the very more older time-periods of thousands of years before the beginning of the christian era ! - Bernhard
