Cat poo coffee: $100 a cup – this doesn’t have much to do with toxoplasmosa gondii, but once again, it makes me wonder if we’re not all just puppets, and the real rulers of the world are these bizarre microscopic organisms… watch, as i get older i’ll get more and more convinced of this to the point where i’ll become obsessed with ridding the world of this microscopic menace… you wait… it will happen…
West Chester Gorilla Suit Construction Workshop – damn, i wish i lived closer… 8/
??????????????????????????????????2?????0410?????????????????? – no, it’s not japanese spam, but if you would like an anglicised version, thank ThinkGeek for at least partially translating it… these japanese are crazy!
this is ridiculous! it’s why i’m against work in general, but this goes far beyond just work. why don’t they take an earlier, or later train to avoid having to shove them in like this? and these days, why don’t they telecommute? especially in japan… i’ve said this more than once today, but these japanese are crazy!
Malware still malingering for up-to-date anti-virus users – apparently having anti-virus software and keeping it up to date is no longer enough to keep from geting infected by malware… if you use windoesn’t… if you use mac or linux, their virus detection software – courtesy of panda reaserch – doesn’t even work! no wonder i’ve been reading recently about how windows is collapsing…
Cat poo coffee: $100 a cup
April 10, 2008
LONDON, April 10 (UPI) — The British department store Peter Jones has announced plans to sell coffee, harvested from the dung of Indonesian jungle cats, for $100 a cup.
The pricey coffee known as Caffe Raro is a blend of rare Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee and Kupi Luwak, an Indonesian coffee bean that is harvested from the bodily waste left behind by Indonesian civet cats, The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.
The blend is made by Italian company De Longhi.
“It is in high demand from coffee aficionados. They will relish the chance to buy such a rare coffee. After all, only 200kg (440 pounds) of Kupi Luwak coffee is produced each year,” a De Longhi spokesman said.
Joe Teixeira, head of catering for Peter Jones, said the store’s customers are more concerned with unique experiences and an appetite for the weird and the wonderful, whatever the expense.
“The fact the coffee includes a bean ingested by Indonesian civet cats gives them an experience they couldn’t get anywhere else in the world,” he said.
The store said money made from sales of the coffee will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.
