This Is How Caffeine Actually Affects Your Brain 

TIME

Over 83 percent of Americans drink coffee, making the U.S. the world’s largest consumer of the potent beans. We probably love it so much because it’s also our favorite drug—caffeine keeps us going (even in today’s strangely wintry weather). But only a fraction of addicts actually understand how caffeine impacts the brain. Here’s a video that explains the addiction.

The Reactions video explores the chemistry of caffeine, which breaks up into three different molecules: theobromine, paraxanthine, and theophylline. The combined impact of these three compounds induces the wakeful state we all need to start our mornings.

Coffee Dilemma


The Coffee Dilemma


A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning.

 The wife said, “You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don’t have to wait as long to get our coffee”.

The husband said, ” You are in charge of the cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.”

Wife replies, “No you should do it, and besides it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.”

Husband replies, ” I can’t believe that, show me.”

So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and shows him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says:







“HEBREWS”

>Psalm Of Caffeine

>

This is actually one of my fav. verse in the Bible. Memorized!

Psalm 23 (New King James Version)

Psalm 23

A Psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD
Forever.

>I know what you did last week!…and last, last week too!

>Listen up, you! I know you know who you are. I dedicate this post to these you-know-who-you-are. Others not related can read up also. There’s never a secret within me, eh???!??!?! 🙂

To Perakians and Nizar,
Congratulations to all! Pls Pls, no more tussles…and help the Perakians who has been abandoned for months. For once, we want a law passed (like murderlized all Mat Rempits; oh that’s Federal law horrr). Sorry. Forgot my Pengajian Am already.

To investigator from IGB,
Thank you for the pompt response. I hope the investigation into the brick-fall incident can and will be concluded soon and come back to me when you’re done. I wanna know what actually happened. I hope the one responsible is found. If not, Vouchers also I accept wann…. 😛

To you, girl,
As a friend, what have been said is said. What have been done, is done for you. I don’t know what to say and do for you anymore. It’s only you who POSSESS the ultimate cure to solve this insomnia/depression and cry-when-no-one-is-around. Because I know you’re strong, that’s why I know you can make it through this. But also because you’re stubborn, that’s why you hold-on to it. Let go!! Some ppl take 2 years, some ppl take 2 weeks (I know who!), and some *dumb* ppl never get over it. Let me tell you the truth, the other species has ALREADY gotten over it. I know: He’s gotten over it. No point bringing you anywhere (clubbing, swimming, meet new people, makan, PicknBrew) if you can’t let go and move on. Because in the public, ppl can feel your insecurities and your inability to open up. Trust me, I am pro in this situation (pay me!). CAN’T MOVE ON, NO NEW LIFE. STUCK is all you get. But I know next week will be better for you. I know cause my EQ is high and I am freaking evil Gemini who knows both side of the gender’s punya thinking (now pay me!). Hahahaa…….

To my boss,
Aisehh, give me a break marrr. I didn’t know I have to teach lehh cause: Wesak day = public holiday = I also holiday.

To Mum,
Sorry arrr, didn’t know you played reverse pyschology just like I always do to many. Karma. You did ask me not to come back to Ipoh marr during Mum’s Day. You said soo mah-fun. Now you say I ngm-hou-soon to you and lonely! Nevermind, your beloved son coming back from Kansas; all my problems (with u) solved. Kakakakkaa!!!

To Ivy Chai,
GO TO SLEEP , god-damnit. It’s 2.50am.

>First trip to Kluang, Johor

>Although my seniors went to Kluang several times to collect insects there, I’ve never followed. Most of the time, they come back with some insect larvae, I would gladly just take them and make them my OWN culture. What a pity – they were sweaty, tired and with just a day’s trip there, and all credit goes to me.

There was no escape this time. I must go to Kluang. Kluang is famed for its agriculture and their coffee. I’ve one SIF friend that is a Kluang-born kid, now working in KL – O. Puay Seong (sorry, FFK during raya!). I’ve tried Ipoh Original white coffee, Kemaman’s White Coffee, and now the original Kluang RailCoffee (but it’s famous for the Kopi-O, not the white coffee). It’s a buzzling town, selling loads of shoes and kain for baju kurung/Melayu. The main reason I went there, however, was to screen through the all Kluang’s hardware shops for ONE particular pesticide sprayer that I desperately looked for.

Not surprising that small towns usually cooks good food. Not talking about the Kluang Railstation food but the Malay stall down the masjid which cooks the most delicious Kuay-Tiow goreng. My Professor, the driver, Arshia and I shared(!) a plate of kuay tiow goreng (everyone jaga health marr), but ended with each of us (except me) tah-pau another packet home. My Professor said, “Charge everything to our research grant. Tah-pau more. Buy more”. I should have just bought a pair of shoes and charge it to our grant 😛

We visited the kilang membuat sprayer – the ever worldwide famous JungChung Sdn. Bhd. World famous, but I bet none of you would have known 😛 Come on, who the hell does all this spraying experiments but me and my 7 other labmates. In this Malaysia, only 8 person cares about such company.

Reached UPM about 10.30pm. I was tired, but not sweaty. The van driver blasted the aircon. Arshia and I hugged each other behind the rear seat to sleep…………

………YOU WISH!

>A ‘horror’ movie called "The Urge"

>

I decided to head back to Ipoh. Meeting a family doctor and a family who celebrates the return of their VIP daughter to Ipoh. Since the afternoon barbeque at a farm in UPM (see previous post), I’ve not pass motion. If I get my maths right, it’s been 14 days(??!??!?! ) since I last poo-poo. This remains the most embarassing medical condition yet for me, but hey, it’s an extremely SERIOUS medical condition – not a laughing matter! Many people theorized about my condition for not having the urge to go toilet and I think I would gladly sum up their reasons and publish a paper entitled “No Urge in Poo-ing Is a Big Problem for Ivy. Coffee may be the cause.” and get a Ph.D.

I know everyone’s being helpful, but I unless I go to see a doctor, no solution is reliable. Solutions/Reasons proposed by various individuals: Prunes, Durian (!?!), Vitamin C, Lack of Magnesium, Lactose intolerance, Petai, Papaya, Dragon Fruit, Durian (?) Durian(?) and ya, Durians (REALLY?!). Thank you, my new housemate for buying me prunes extract that costs her a fortune, but unfortunately money can’t buy my Urge.

And people, please STTTOOOPPP blaming my Starbucks. My medical condition has nothing to do with coffee. I’m sure of it. If non of this stop, I will post a video on Youtube crying and begging everyone LEAVE MY COFFEE (habits) ALONE!! (hint: leave-britney-alone video) 😛
