Starbucks, Coffee Bean and Folgers are basically drug dealers, right?
Coffee tastes like shit and if you think you need it every morning, congratulations! You're an addict! I don't drink the stuff and I can still pull 18 and 20 hour days for weeks at a time. Coffee does one thing, it tricks your brain into thinking you're not tired. That means you never get any real sleep if you're drinking a ton of coffee, which makes you more tired and makes you crave more coffee.
So, the point of the video is that coffee is a "drug" with no major side effects?
If anything, this video makes me think more drugs should be legal...
So, a lot of people are miserable to produce coffee? That's a good point, but it's just not really expanded enough... who exactly is suffering to produce the coffee?
As for the bitter taste, I agree that's a bit "stockholm syndrome", but that point doesn't really apply to people that's already used to the bitter taste.
You forgot to mention how medical "experts" say coffee actually helps prevent heart disease and a cup a day is healthy. I learned that from my mother who gets angry when I tell her they're just telling people that because the last thing a drug dealer wants is a consumer who wants to quit.
That's why I don't go to Starbucks I prefer Wawa and if you don't know what Wawa is you're obviously not from Pennsylvania or New Jersey let's just say the coffee is cheaper and they won't write your name on the cup
Would have been so kool if he also said "But hey dont feel so bad for falling for it , because its not just poor people i get . Some rich people buy this one brand at $500 a pound and it that comes out of a lemurs ass." ( puts hands up and laughs evily )
he keeps saying "drug" like it's supposed to mean anything, but littereally evreything could be considered a drug. sugar has a bigger effect on us than cafeine, and yet sugar in moderate amounts is absolutely essential (the brain only accepts carbohydrates as energy). Cafein is not acctually a dangerous drug (at least in the amounts you could possibly consume from coffe), it acctually has benefits. and to all you americans who suffer from drinking shit coffee, try drinking a real cup of italian esspresso, it's fruity and has lots of depth to it.
they did however have a point in terms "fair trade" and the global market.
Caffeine doesn't stimilate neural system. It only blocks adenosine which causes sleepyness. It has no effect on already active brain. Second, people become tolerant to caffeine really fast as your brain develops additional adenosine receptors in responce to them being blocked. It can cause something of a withdrawal symptome if you stop drinking coffee but it's fixed by something as simple as a good night sleep. Third, adenosine isn't even the only thing that's responsible for sleep and people can actually sleep rather okay even after a cup of coffee if they are actually tired. Oh, and blood pressure increase is only noticeabe for those who drink coffee rarely.
Other thing about coffee is that they can literally buy the politicians from the undeveloped countries. For an example, in Brazil, from 1889 to 1930 all the governments represented the coffees elite rather than people (all suported by US, of course)
don't forget that if you don't pour it down your throat like its got the cure for cancer in it, that shit gets cold, all the flavor we associate with coffee will oxidize out and you will be left with a cup of liquefied bitter ash. I mean at least it had cigar flavor when it was fresh. once it gets cold it tastes like chewing up a fist full of Tylenol.
GNN THY WILL BE DONE++++Starbucks Coffee, Pesticides, Parasites, Radiation - SOQI ...
Starbucks coffee addiction, pesticides, ... COFFEE - Starbucks Addiction ... The liver can become overloaded trying to detoxify out all the chemical residue in coffee
aNY cOFFEE DRINKERS PLEASE SHARE AND STY AOUT OF STARBUCKS FOR YOUR OWN HEALTH..YOU CAGO TO A SPEED WAY OR LOVE STATIONS AND GET THE SAME FROOTH ON THE TIOP IF YOYOUR COFFE FOR 1.50
See told ya all they were coming for coffee next. The FDA is trying now to ban kratom which is in same family as coffee and tea. Funny video but this is actually happening in real life. Kratom is no more of a drug than coffee. It's just tea is all it is. Don't listen to the negative propaganda. Basically big pharma wants to turn kratom into a pill so their bribing FDA so they can create a monopoly. A lot politicians are fighting to keep it legal while others are getting their pockets lined by big pharma. Big pharma can't patent a plant so they need to ban it to get sole control of it.
Realistic? Yeah, everybody gets dressed and heads out to the yard for the first cup of coffee. More than likely, you're still in underwear or sitting on the toilet at the start of that first cup. Lame!
If severely underpaid people grow and harvest those bitter seeds, then why is coffee so dam expensive? And,, if you're going to cry the blues about ' underpaid ' workers, Nancy, then why is almost everything sold in the United States made in China?? You remember China,,,, where millions of low paid workers have taken over millions of better paying jobs from us,,, THAT China?
>What new contribution have you made
Do you guage contribution based on new knowledge introduced to a topic?
This contributes a new, entertainful and satirical format to a topic many people would still be ignorant on. Easy to consume and easy to process.
you forgot that as one of the top three addictive substances sold legally in the US, it's distributed to children, without need to prove age, and nobody looks twice... but then that's mostly in soda and "energy" drinks.
i thought you were going to say wet cigar butts and ass... not asphalt. close enough!
Coffees awesome and Last time I checked I don't see dragons after drinking a cup also it's not addictive I drink coffee everyday but have gone months at a time without drinking it also I don't think anyone likes there job so the fact people don't like picking coffee doesn't say much
By the way you never hear about people drinking coffee or smoking cigarettes and then getting in their car and running over someone and killing them you want to know why because nicotine and caffeine or not mind altering substances they do not cause Euphoria and do not alter your perception by the way I can go for days weeks even months without drinking a cup of coffee if you're so weak minded that you have to get addicted to something then you need to be locked away in a padded cell
Here's some more communist liberal horse yet to warp your mind you can't smoke a cigarette or drink coffee but you can put other mind-altering drugs in your system like marijuana cocaine and everything else this is the result of a brainwashed fucked up socialist society that needs to be destroyed
Actually first of all caffeine is not a mind-altering substance it doesn't have a narcotic effect they want to legalize marijuana but now they're talking about banning coffee and cigarettes sounds stupid to me
