coffee is a fucking meme drink for normies
>hurr durr le don't talk to me b4 my morning coffee
abstinence from your gay addiction is not an excuse to act like a fucking asshole to everyone
It is funny that usually the most useless people drink the most coffee. Tea is superior in every way.
I only drink coffee to break through a hangover and take a nice shit afterwards, otherwise this stuff is useless for an actually busy person.
Normie coffee is also fucking atrocious. Caffeine doesn't really affect me, but I love coffee for the flavour. I roast it at home and got a siphon vacuum pot brewer recently makes class coffee, with a tea-like quality.
But the coffee meme is shit.
caffeine is a big ol meme for sure
drank 2 redbull tallboy cans once, didn't do shit.
coffee tastes horrible too, i would probably have to drink several cups of it to feel anything
I really enjoy coffee, to the point of having a very decent coffee machine at my house that I use it with, but I don't understand people who have the need to buy pricey coffee at chains like Starbucks everyday.
Caffeine inhibits GABA, it dehydrates you making you sluggish while also raising cortisol levels, it also flushes key minerals out of your system, including magnesium which serves over 300 biological functions within the human body. The guy is right, you fell for a literal fucking meme and now you are drinking pesticide that tricks your body into thinking it is in danger.
>work at a cafe
>drink so much coffee all my teeth are rotting and caffein doesn't work how it's supposed to
>I need it just to avoid massive headaches
>my heart hurts
>it's slowly killing me so I'm more inclined to drink it
Tastes great tho.
Your body naturally gets tired throughout the day due to our natural sleeping habits which were small naps throughout the day. For example this is why you crash around 1-2pm and everyone whines about it at work.
But due to the way our modern life is now, we can never take these naps and we are forced to do big long days. The caffeine helps you do this.
Unless you have a job where you are able to take the naps you body is wired to take then you are either fucked or will need to take a stimulant or other drug such as modafinil
I used to work at a Starbucks, and I can confirm. Some coffee drinkers are cool, but the vast majority are the type of assholes who actually think the whole "don't even TALK to me until I've had my coffee" thing is fucking hilarious.
>I'm on moda right now doing an all-nighte
Fuck that reminds me.
Be careful with modafinil by taking it at the right hours. When I first got it I was studying for exams and I took some at 10pm like a dickhead and I ended up staying awake for nearly 48 hours.
The last 12 hours were brutal because even though I was physically exhausted (Heart rate was through the roof) my mind could not turn off. It literally was alert and wanting stimulation.
Anyone wanting to try modafinil make sure you only take it in the morning so that when it wears off it's time to sleep.
Or you could cut out refined sugar & caffeine, drink plenty of water and you will not have these crashes. People crash because they eat like shit and over use caffeine, which both cause these dips.
Long term use of caffeine actually makes you more tired than if you did not use it in the first place.
Drug habits only start being problematic when either the substance is seriously harming you or you are cut off from your source.
I'd much rather have 600mg caffeine, ty lad.
What are the odds that the person who made this cup is a woman? Jesus fuck they can't even do a completely normal activity like drinking a cup of coffee without acting like they're special for doing it. Yes, I'm a girl coffee drinker. Yes, I drink coffee over twice a day! Don't hit on me you silly boys~
>tfw your only joy of the day is waking up to a fresh pot of coffee
Modafinil is better in every way though.
>Removes fatigue instead of masking it with Jittery alertness like caffeine does
>Lasts for 11-12 hours unlike the hour or so caffeine does.
>Too much caffeine will fuck with your heart and brain, modafinil doesn't really do anything.
>i '"naturally"' run out of energy in the middle of the day
nigga this is why coffee is killing you, you are crashing from a caffeine high
if you didn't introduce the chemicals, you wouldn't have these problems
literally drug addict mentality
It's a narcoleptic drug
Turns the brain on all dam day so much so that you could not force yourself to feel mentally tired if you tried.
You can't sleep while on it or feel turned off.
It has two major drawbacks compared to caffeine, which is why I am not all too interested in it.
It's not well researched and access to it is somewhat restricted.
Caffeine has LITERALLY no drawbacks too.
I live in Australia and I ordered it on line. Delivers through mail to my door. They even got some doctor in Canada to create me a prescription and put it inside the package to get past customs. I take them 3 weeks on 1 week off.
thanks a lot pham, now i want to get some coffee
pretty sure every normie on /r9k/ is in this thread right now
Having crashes isnt normal, we are made to be on the go constantly, that is why humans are so great at long distance running and at peak can go pretty much all day if need be, especially when it came to a kill.
It is the caffeine that causes the crash, you are hooked. If you think back far enough, you never needed it in the first place, and you got yourself into a cycle for some reason of relying on it, could have been a late night that started it, could have been a day where you were sick, but you put this onto yourself.
>hurr durr le don't talk to me b4 my morning coffee
can be seen as another way of saying
>don't talk to me until i'm fully awake
which is a perfectly valid request/expectation regardless of whether or not you're a coffee drinker.
I hate it when people try to talk to me first thing in the morning when I'm not fully awake.
>Mfw coffee drinkers are not naturally energetic
Literally subhuman trash.
you should see
It also disrupts sleep, causing you to want it more in the morning. You literally do not need it, you only require it because you got yourself into a cycle of crashing through addiction.
>Having crashes isnt normal
It literally is through.
Every day after lunch, you find yourself overcome by drowsiness, and you can't get any work done because you just want to crawl under your desk and go to sleep. Why does this happen?
This universal phenomenon, known as the "post-lunch dip," represents a collision of biology and economics.
It is entirely natural for humans to want to go to sleep about seven hours after they have awakened.
But as the internal rhythms of the body call out for rest, the efficiency of the modern workplace demands continued exertion.
What is happening in the body that it craves rest after lunch?
First, the 24-hour cycle of the body, or its circadian rhythm, is naturally in a resting phase at this time. In the afternoon, it happens to converge with another physiological cycle - known as homeostatic - that measures the amount of time spent awake and that is also pushing for a rest.
It acts on histamine,noradrenaline and serotonin secretion, of which the first two which are involved in wakefulness (Histamine in the regulation of sleep) and noradrenaline which increases HR/BR slightly.
Serotonin is involved in memory retention and improving neurogenesis (generation of brain cells).
Caffeine just acts on your CNS, increasing your HR/BR but it doesn't block the release of hormones involved in sleep like melatonin which means you'll have fatigue when taking it for an all-nighter, but some alertness from the caffeine
Assuming you're UK/US, you can legally import it online.
no it's not you autist
being a groggy faggot doesn't excuse you from doing the things you need to do
it doesn't give you an excuse to be an asshole to people who didn't force you to have a shitty sleep schedule
I hate normie culture and the way they glorify and apply juvenile "wit" to mundane things.
>anything involving any mainstream sport
I hate Fagbook for this very reason. Just shitty, watered-down, rehashed memes posted by soccer moms and lower class idiots.
>hat is why humans are so great at long distance running
Humans are actually quite terrible at long distance running. We were designed to burst short distances quickly.
I am not sure where this meme originated but I believe Mr Shekelstein from Nike has something to do with it.
>Caffeine has LITERALLY no drawbacks
Are you LITERALLY a spastic? Caffeine is dependency forming, makes you jittery rather than genuinely alert and dehydrates you while causing you to crash after an hour or two.
I"m an infamous "straight edge" (according to losers on r9k) who will freely admit to being addicted to low dosage caffeine in coffee
this is because, drugs in themselves aren't a problem. It's what their effects on the body are. And low dosage (up to 3 cups) caffeine is completely healthy and proven to enhance intelligence so you're all faggots if you refuse to drink this
>select all images with coffee
It literally says in the article that some people do experience this dip. Most people consume high amounts of sugar, which is in pretty much everything a long with caffiene which makes more sense as to why it is happening. I do not get this dip, I know of others who do not either.
>We were designed to burst short distances quickly.
We are the fucking best long distance runners in the world over any other fucking mammal.
Rustling my jimmies mate
It is well researched, military uses it for their soldiers on longer shifts if needed, and many studies have done, they've also done an meta-analysis of every study done in the last twenty years and have concluded it does in fact work.
Caffeine has drawbacks, especially at higher doses.
I know this is a big surprise to you, but not everybody is nice and chipper in the morning like you. I know it's really difficult to grasp the concept that people are different and that not everybody is a morning person, but please, try to understand, if just for a moment. You can still feel shit and groggy in the morning even with plenty of sleep, there are plenty of other factors that affect how you feel when you wake up.
While I'll agree with you that being tired in the morning doesn't give you an excuse to be a prick to people or shirk your duties, at the same time, I think it's a perfectly reasonable thing to tell someone that you're feeling tired and shitty and don't want to talk right that moment, and conversely, it's pretty shitty to try and ramble on at someone first thing in the morning if they're clearly not a morning person and look like shit (assuming it's casual conversation and not something work related). It's just simple courtesy.
>We are the fucking best long distance runners in the world over any other fucking mammal.
You're retarded mate. You didn't choose to be but I still can't help but get upset by your ignorance.
Here's a tip: start learning about our endocrine system.
Then why was it mentioned that some people do not experience it? just because it is seen as a norm for people to crash, does not mean that the reasons behind it hard normal. Again, most people eat like shit, even when they think they are eating great. Low fat yoghurts, bread, juice, etc all sugar.
I used to drink coffee every single morning and feel awful for it. The last 5 years I've drank a glass of water as soon as I wake up and I've never felt better in my life, coffee is probably the worst thing you can put in your body if you want to stay awake. Inb4 muh caffeine.
Most mammals can sprint faster than humans having four legs gives them the advantage. But when it comes to long distances, humans can outrun almost any animal. Because we cool by sweating rather than panting, we can stay cool at speeds and distances that would overheat other animals. On a hot day, the two scientists wrote, a human could even outrun a horse in a 26.2-mile marathon.
Why would evolution favor the distance runner? The prevailing theory is that endurance running allowed primitive humans to incorporate meat into their diet. They may have watched the sky for scavenging birds and then run long distances to reach a fresh kill and steal the meat from whatever animal was there first.
Other research suggests that before the development of slingshots or bows, early hunters engaged in persistence hunting, chasing an animal for hours until it overheated, making it easy to kill at close range. A 2006 report in the journal Current Anthropology documents persistence hunting among modern hunter-gatherers, including the Bushmen in Africa.
Have you literally paid any attention at school man?
You can link all sites you want but it won't change the truth.
Heck, I can give you links to sites which claim the world is flat and we never landed on the moon all day but it won't make it true.
Btw, the first Marathon runner died from exhaustion. That should be your first clue ;)
I am at least taking 30 seconds to provide something of reference.
You are nothing more then a liberal arts degree reference of "Cuz i said so".
I am not going to bother to find the perfect scholarly published research paper but I at least did more then you.
>You are nothing more then a liberal arts degree reference of "Cuz i said so".
Nice ad hominem you've got there bitch boy. I'm in the STEM field if you have to know
This is usually what people say when they know you are right, but want to waste your time. Often they will disregard the evidence anyway, even after posting it.
>tl;dr Citations are for redditors who cant think on their own
> I'm in the STEM field if you have to know what made if obvious.
As I am. I have doubts that you are due to the fact you put so little concern in referencing your statements.
Any university worth half a dam would not even let you pass a science course of any kind without providing some evidence of your claims.
Soft science does not count as STEM.
>This is usually what people say when they know you are right, but want to waste your time. Often they will disregard the evidence anyway, even after posting it.
I am literally the one posting any evidence at all even if its half assed.
>>tl;dr Only citations are for redditors who cant think on their own
ITS RIGHT CUZ I SAID SO
NO! THAT REFERENCE IS WRONG
WHY? C-CUZ UM, ER I SAID IT IS!
Actually now that I typed this. 9/10 bait. Though the "I'm in the STEM field if you have to know" gave it away.
>I am not sure where this meme originated
Good thermoregulation would be necessary for a species to be suited to marathon or endurance running. You get too hot too fast, you gotta rest and cool down. Thus it generally doesn't help having a thick layer of fur which will not only insulate you, but will absorb sweat making it evaporate less efficiently.
Speaking of sweat, another thing important for endurance running is being able to deliver oxygen to your muscles. You are less capable of doing this if you rely on panting for thermoregulation instead of sweating.
Or, what, merely pretending?
>Lanky as fuck dude can run a marathon
>Built athlete can run a short distance incredibly quickly
Hmmm, I wonder what is more likely to be the natural state of primitive man, a build that requires relatively low calories or a build that takes years of hard work and eating thousands of excess calories to maintain.
Offical food of red... phhht 9gag more like. Goddamn. Why can't anyone have their own taste and not parade it around while saying "LOOK GUIZ! I AM ON OF YOU GUYZ! MEMEZ LOLZ."
>cave man sprints to catch antelope
>it runs away just like every other prey due to being slow
>Used small energy but in the end never catch anything
>Do this 20 times a day and fail every time then die due to no food or protein
>cave man runs after antelope
>It slowly gets away but caveman keeps in the hunt over an hour or two and causes antelope to collapse due to exhaustion
>used 10 times the calories of a normal sprint but was able to catch a large prey and won't need to do this again for many days
>Use extra time to evolve into modern man
A friendly reminder that this is coffee, anything else posted in this thread is just dirty water.
I love coffee and drink 5-6 cups a day, but I 100% agree, the coffee meme is the most enraging thing on earth.
I actually want to bludgeon someone to death whenever they make some stupid quip about their 'morning cup' or have a coffee mug with some smug fucking saying on it
I like coffee because it's easy to make. Mixing up some juice leaves room for error. Water through a filter of coffee grounds is always consistent. I value consistency. I'd drink coffee all day if I wasn't paranoid that as a stimulant it may give me body undue stress. Coffee and iced coffee are gods among drinks.
>1 cup of coffee
>$2-$6 depending on country
Why the fuck are there so many people who apparently don't brew their own coffee? I'm not even into coffee and I have a brewer because I'm not retarded enough to spend that much on coffee.
>BUT NO I SAID NO!
>LITERALLY YES BECAUSE X Y Z
>put on a pot a little while ago
>just took it off, tim hortons brew
>getting comfy and playing some comfy vidya
I honestly cannot believe that most people live their entire lives with their sleep/waking cycle being dictated by other people
It's so fucking bleak
Daily reminder that if you don't smoke and don't drink coffee and whisky, then you're a massive pussy who deserves to be alone.
inb4 enjoy dying, like I give a fuck
That's one of the only things I think coffee is good for
Preventing me from passing out when I'm drunk
Otherwise it's too dysphoric for me to make a real habit out of it
It's also good if you're trying to break a stim habit too
>Every day after lunch, you find yourself overcome by drowsiness, and you can't get any work done because you just want to crawl under your desk and go to sleep.
Speak for yourself.
>This universal phenomenon
No, no it isn't.
>Still handing out your sheckels to Mr. Goldstein and the coffee Jews
>Still ruining your teeth so you have hand out your sheckels to Dr. Sachs and the dental Jews
>Still wasting time and energy by preparing and drinking your Venti Lattes
Seriously, no wonder you autists can't get gfs. Every functioning human just buys caffeine pills now.
You aren't a true robot unless you sit at home on your computer with a nice hot cup of tea.
Why the hate on coffee? If I have to pull an all-nighter for university, I prefer this to tea. Tea is for staying (sic!) up, tea is for either getting up or calming down. I like both for what they are. Also:
>Not having your own coffee machine
