Why is this forum here ? I'm sure it is not free to host and manage a forum like this. I dont see any ads so somebody is paying for it from their pocket. Why do you suppose they would do that ?

Hi littlejohn and welcome to CC. You are correct, the site is not free to run - I pay for this place to exist because I value it and believe in it. As for the purpose of the forums, I recommend you read the About Captain Cynic section as it is a gives a good introduction into the purpose of this site.

pickup, no there isn't a donation button, I don't feel like that is something I currently prefer to do. I don't want CC members to feel obligated in that way though I do appreciate your sentiment. As for that coffee, can I take a herbal tea instead?

haha I like a cup of chamomile myself , I am not a big coffee drinker but there was this sort of indie movement that compared donating to their art by buying them a starbucks coffee for something that they made that will last you your entire life.

It's sort of a satire on corporate greed and on how we willfully waste money on things that really don't seem to matter as much.

I do however enjoy marleys mellow mood from time to time which sort of like an anti energy tea supplement drink as I can be very high energy from time to time.

starbucks coffee in particular gives me the shakes, it's like crack really when you look at the amount of caffeine in it. Thank you for this site it's awesome and so are you

I am going to stop being such a jerk to people that I see as bullies on this site and try to turn the other cheek please forgive my transgressions

Well I'm glad you're here and that you're enjoying the site.

LOL - I just read your personal quote - I love Carl Sagan! I love watching the beginning of the first episode of the Cosmos because of Carl and his warm words
