"I almost always use a French press, except when we have guests who drink coffee then I will break out the drip coffee maker because it will make more coffee than my French press. When it is just me, it is always the French press."
"I definitely fall in the "Don't reheat" club. I will add, you can get away with maybe 20 seconds or so in the microwave if the coffee is at room temperature without changing the taste, a little longer if you have added…"
"We live in a relatively safe environment and people have grown used to and learned to not trust their intuition and body signals that would have otherwise protected us from danger. It is still there, just people need to reconnect with it.…"
"To me, trying to define a warrior is difficult. In my opinion a warrior embodies the following character attributes:

Many years ago, I obtained my private pilots license and enjoyed flying until it became too restrictive and expensive.

"What you say is true.... But the other alternatives are even more damaging. Socialist and communist economies concentrate the power even more than capitalism and democracy. What ever system you pick the outcome for the people you describe would be…"
