The cup of coffee is farmed, picked, processed, shipped, sold, made and then drank. So "just a cup of coffee" is undervaluing the coffee. You know this. ;)

Question my tastes as much as you please.

To question the coffee, have a cup yourself. :-D

I like my coffee with three teaspoons of sugar. So I guess it's not just a cup of coffee after all. It's just a cup of coffee with three teaspoons of sugar. :-P

This is because all Japanese people are in fact Jewish.

In fact everyone is Jewish, as the first man was Jewish. So it's nothing special.

vertical line I don't watch what you see.
I don't listen what you hear.
I don't smell what you scent.
I don't taste what you lick.
I don't feel what you touch.
I don't know what you think.

vertical line A Rabbi entered the sacred meeting house to find his disciples playing checkers. "Ah, ha!" he exclaimed. "Do you know the rules to the game of checkers?" Too taken aback to answer, the young men maintained a guilty silence. So the Rabbi said: "Very well, I will instruct you in the rules to checkers. The firt rule is that you can only move forward. The second rule is that you can only make one move at a time. And the third rule is that, upon reaching the back row, you may move in any direction you wish!"

vertical line A student undertook a food and water fast for one week. On his way to see the Rabbi on the last hour of his fast, he went by a well. Overwhelmed by temptation, he drew a bucket of water. As his lips touched the ladle, he decided that to yield to thirst would wipe out a week's work. So he went off to the meeting house instead. When he entered, the Rabbi looked at him and said, "Patchwork!"
