Bravely bold Sir Buka
Rode forth from Camelot.
He was not afraid to die,
Oh brave Sir Buka.
He was not at all afraid
To be killed in nasty ways.
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Buka.

He was not in the least bit scared
To be mashed into a pulp.
Or to have his eyes gouged out,
And his elbows broken.
To have his kneecaps split
And his body burned away,
And his limbs all hacked and mangled
Brave Sir Buka.

His head smashed in
And his heart cut out
And his liver removed
And his bowels unplugged
And his nostrils raped
And his bottom burnt off
And his penis
"That's, that's enough music for now lads, there's dirty work afoot."

Brave Sir Buka ran away.
("No!")
Bravely ran away away.
("I didn't!")
When danger reared it's ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
("I never!")
Yes, brave Sir Buka turned about
And gallantly he chickened out.
("You're lying!")
Swiftly taking to his feet,
He beat a very brave retreat.
Bravest of the brave, Sir Buka!

Oh, sure, only tell part of Brave Sir Buka's legacy.

I nearly fought the fierce dragon of Angnor!
Almost stood up to the vicious chicken of Bristol!
Wet myself at the battle of Baden Hill!

And just because I didn't know the capital of Assyria, I get tossed into the Gorge of Eternal Peril? Who does the Bridgekeeper think he is, Alex Trebek?

We never should have left the Castle Anthrax. We should still be granting the wishes of the naughty Zoot and her sister Dingo. Ripped off we were.

There is a theory that salt actually helps make coffee less bitter. I think whether true or not, if you need to do this you are drinking the wrong coffee.

But, if you like briny coffee, maybe a bacon garnish is a good thing....
I read some actual chemistry behind that. I was intrigued because my grandfather taught me that with camp coffee (always more bitter), and I still use it when I overdo things.

There's a guy named james hoffman, a fussy Brit that I really like to watch in spite of every rational part of me telling me I shouldn't. Anyhoo, he does really interesting coffee and espresso related videos, like the following one on salt and coffee.

Bacon causes butt cancer. Says it all.

Similar to the campaign in (IIRC) the Chicago area by PCRM.org (Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine). An actual billboard pictured below.

Where are they putting the bacon and hot dogs?

Get some Turkey bacon too. It's nice to have a lil variety every now and then.

Legend.. yeah love his stuff. Can't remember if we discussed him in LP#6... but I'll say it again: the best sweaters, glasses and hair (that people are obsessed with and discuss often in the comments section!)

His findings are consistent with my own (far less precise) experiences. A light sprinkle on the grounds works quite well for a full pot, and a few grains is sufficient for a mug. And it helps, but doesn't fix bad coffee.
