He wants coffeeAnd to round out the fun stuffs today, some facts about coffee because…COFFEE! Right? RIGHT!

In days gone by, Turkish bridegrooms had to promise that they would always provide their new wives with coffee.

This would keep my marriage happy!

A La Trobe University study has fond stressed people who drink five cups of coffee can exhibit signs of hallucination. They study determined that stressed people who had drunk about 200 mg of caffeine during the day were more likely to imagine hearing things.

Is this why writers drink so much coffee? I like those voices in my head. Just sayin’…

For women, caffeine may prevent long-term memory loss. Because caffeine is a psycho-stimulant, older women who drink three or more cups of coffee or tea a day have less memory loss and cognitive decline than their counterparts who drink less or none. Unfortunately, caffeine consumption doesn’t seem to have any preventative effect against dementia.

Yippee!!! 😀 And…bummer. 😦

  1. Go Coffee! Yay!

    Either I’ve never been stressed enough or I’m not drinking enough coffee, because I’ve never hallucinated with coffee. (Valium, on the other hand… :shudder:)

    I didn’t participate too much with the Twelve Brides thing on FB – night time is my work time – but I still had a lot of fun. And I used the gift certificate I won to pick up most of the 12 books. Yay!
