Caffeine

Servings of caffeinated beverages I have consumed while living in the UK:

Coffee: Approx. 500
Tea: 4

Currently consuming tea number five, the first I've actually brewed myself. I think there's something to be said for tea. It's more of a comfort beverage than coffee, and the tea brewing process itself is actually quite soothing. First you boil water, then pour it over the tea, wait five minutes, add sugar and milk to taste. The whole process takes about ten minues, and for this reason tea drinking would never work well in the United States. Tea is a productivity nightmare. The process takes far too much time and contributes nothing to the economy, and the end result is more soothing than stimulating.

Real men don't put milk in their tea.

No, real men don't drink tea at all.

Real men don't talk about what men ought - or ought not - to do in order to be real men!

Seeing as the original comment was made by a woman, I think my response falls under some sort of exemption to that rule.

That may be true enough. However, from what I've seen and experienced firsthand; this is what women talk about and men often beg to listen to such conversations.

Right. We have to pretend to be interested in what you say behind our backs, otherwise you'd all go insane from lack of jealousy or something.

Some very perceptive posts here.

I am sure you are right, but would be loath (for fear of being thought sexist) to inquire whether one sex were better known for talking, and the other for listening! ;-) :-)
