  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Never again, never ever again.
    That stuff just screws some people up. Some people can take it fine but I find it has serious impact on my personality, my eating habits and my tiredness levels.

    I desperately wanted a drink which was warm, all day drinkable and wasn't coffee and finally realised after years of drinking jasmine tea at my local Vietnamese pho house that it's been right in front of me for years.
    The caffeine content is vastly lower, no sugar is required to reduce the bitterness, the calorie count is 0 and I find I can drink it all day long.

    I now drink near a gallon a day (I have it quite weak) and feel so much better for it.
    I also had fatty liver and since moving to jasmine tea my liver has significantly improved.

    I do know some people have no problem and good for you but the impact on me is astounding. Especially if I have it after not having it for a long time. Last time I broke a drought and had 2 at a cafe over 2 hours with a friend they were basically in shock at my reaction to it. Couldn't stop talking or moving, incredibly energetic, much like I had amphetamines (which I have had before) - the feeling was almost identical.

    No thanks.

    The panela [] it's a traditional food used in many latin american countries. Here in Colombia we boil water with panela inside an this is called "Agua de Panela" or "Agupanela" in short. this beverage is used as the drink in the breakfast with milk or alone, in the lunch is used again alone or with lemmon juice and here it's name change to "Agupanela con Limon". in the dinner, again, it's also drinked alone or with milk. Also this beveraga cold and with lemmon juice "Agupanela con limon fria" is a refresing beverage used when you are exercising.

    How ironically appropriate that the comments section of the unscientific poll lead to so many anecdotal accounts of why what someone is doing is So Incredibly Healthy and Lead To Amazing Life Changes.

    Seriously: it astonishes me that people will take something like "I drink foo for breakfast, and now my workout routine is AWESOME" or "I used to drink bar but then when I quit my miscellaneous-probably-false health problem cleared up" etc. I mean, supposedly ./ is filled with geeks who love logic and science, but then I read stuff like this and realize we're no different than the other animals around us, just perhaps more computer/geek savvy.

    If you're unclear, I'll give you a hint: odds are overwhelming you're experiencing a placebo. Even if you don't believe it's placebo because of [insert reason here], I'll give you another hint: it is.

    Sad, really.
