Something, something, do you have a pH of 10 ... ?

That is indeed a redeeming quality

And RARE (not raw ) steak
If it's rare it is raw to me. Have tried it can't stand the taste or texture of rare steak. Just can't eat it.

Does having at least two slices of pumpkin pie every year over Thanksgiving buy a pass?

I'll admit the whole pumpkin thing isn't a flavour I actively seek out and it will never, ever, displace strawberries for a cheesecake topping out here where the humble ribes nigrum has been deemed a pest (even if my lovely wife managed to find some, inexplicably Downton Abbey branded blackcurrant jam for me for Xmas), I don't hate it with the passion of a thousand burning suns like a lot of people seem to either.

Granted, apple and cherry top the pie charts (NO PUN INTENDED) for me every time, but slather enough whipped cream on there and pumpkin pie is more than palatable. **** off with sweet potato pie though, that shit is rank.

It's OK to like your steak whatever way you want to like it. For me, the rarer it is the better it tastes, but WGAF what I think?

Stollen has raisins, we've covered that - Nutek is welcome to all of it.

My wife doesn't like coffee, so since we never have it around the house, I have just got used to not drinking it, but when I do, I usually like it black and unsweetened, unless it's really rank and I have no other option, then cream and sugar can rescue the flavor somewhat.

I don't see why not.

Each to their own. Fortunately we can all get it just the way we like it.

Have you ever asked yourself why some plants produce nicotine or caffeine? The answer is illuminating.

THC is thought to have a different purpose (similar, but different target), the same purpose as capsaicinoids.

No but I know they can be harmful?

Caffeine can have both positive and negative health effects.
