What's for breakfast?

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”

Thin cut, baked pork chops and Honeynut Cheerios in milk. Need protein for my stretch at the gym.

I used to like using folgers singles, especially when traveling, but it's getting harder and harder to find these days as everyone seems to be into Keurig craze. I did come across this one the other day at the supermarket. Giving it a try right now (although I'm usually not a fan of Maxwells House)

How does it gain 1.75 more caffeine? Do they spray on some chemical compound?

I really don't know, Wendy. They probably just market based on caffeine level.

...I wonder if they just raised pH level of Folger's dark roast to make it taste "smooth as silk"

They say that we are to eat like a King for breakfast

Like a Prince for lunch

and like a pauper for dinner.
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”

“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”

Not my breakfast - his painting. It doesn't really look too delectable, does it?

Any conversation about the oil paintings of Netherlands-based artist Tjalf Sparnaay usually begin with a question: “Wait, that’s a painting?” Working in the hyperrealism genre, Sparnaay’s work is so richly detailed that it has helped spawn a subgenre known as “megarealism.” And it’s easy to see why with Gebakken Ei, an image so evocative that one can practically smell and taste the dish. Though he works in a manner similar to the early Dutch masters, Sparnaay’s focus on food is one way in which he creates a universality with his subject matter. This may be his best known image of a baked egg, but it’s an object he has returned to several times—and even wrote a poem about it: "The sun shining behind the clouds smiles at us every morning with its fried fringe like a coastline with beaches" —Jennifer M. Wood, writer

I wonder why there has become such an obsession with food. lol
