Coffee, Milk and Mad Science. · 11:51pm July 26th

So a while ago I decided to perform a little experiment: I had been thinking about what would happen if you brew coffee on milk - as in actually replacing the water with milk rather than mixing some into the finished coffee - and what the resulting beverage would taste like.

A few days ago I finally decided an empirical test was in order. I tried both brewing with ground coffee beans and using instant coffee, and will now outline the results since I have nothing better to do.

2438033 If all people were like you, the world would be denied harmony.

You base your goals on subjective inclinations instead of the objective ones.

Besides, clinging on immortality would make one a stain to future generations. Immagine you were born 1 000 000 years ago and you found a way to live forever. You'd now be among Homo Sapiens with just 50 IQ. You could never truly belong. Despite your permanent state, the world would just leave you behind, eventually.

If your cell phone starts dying, you don't do everything in your power to preserve it if it would cost more than buying a new one.

If the strong are to prosper, the weak and obsolete must perish.

Why keep old people around if you can just make new ones, though?

Well, for starters, those new people aren't me.

Priorities, you know?

The most contributions people make to society is up to their 40es.

It's not about contributions - we don't kill people because they happen to be useless. Everyone has the right to stay alive, including the old. Being able to prolong someone's life but deciding not to because they are considered inconvenient is barbaric.

After that, they're just a burden to everyone.

And that's why we need to figure out how to slow, stop and/or reverse aging so people can stay in their prime longer.

Because you're alive, one person is being denied existence.

This is a fair exchange, I'd say.

You're sacrificing others on your path to immortality. Do you think it's worth it?

For me personally? Absolutely.

I'm kinda hoping that won't be necessary. I'm still fairly young, after all, and the age of miracles is dawning. They say the first person to reach 150 has already been born.

Basically, by the by the time I'm actually old, science may have figured out how to keep people alive indefinitely.

Don't mention it.

Thanks for your help!
