• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

I know that smile.
He first had to wait behind a bunch of people ordering everything BUT coffee with paragraph-long names. :)

Nice try...The Maya invented chocolate. Served in that era, as a bitter beverage mostly to royalty. Unfortunately for them, they hadn't invented sugar yet. Although from the looks of him, he probably was a king or some kind of nobleman. And...that does look like a bunch of plumbing he's facing...

Watch a program on the History of Chocolate on the History Channel. Said program is very interesting. Coffee is from Northeastern Africa / Yemen. Haven't you ever heard about the legend of the "Dancing Goats"?

I used to work in an office building opposite (and downwind) from the Starbucks roasting plant in Seattle. They received Coffee beans by the rail car load. When they started roasting those beans...whew! it got pungent around there. The resident Coffee addicts noses were twitching like crazy.

Ah, yes! The famous coffee plantations of Seattle, and the Yoga goats. I had forgotten. That dude in the Codex couldn't possibly have been royalty. Otherwise he wouldn't have had to wait in line "behind a bunch of people ordering everything BUT coffee with paragraph-long names."

[I won't discuss the time I walked into a Starbucks, and ordered a "cup of coffee." I grew up in the days of roadside diners, where the waitresses were a bit more lucid.]

So Moby Dick was plagiarized from the Mayans?
We'll never know. The Spaniards, in a moment of religious zeal, burned nearly every Mayan written document they could lay their hands on. Unless...unless an unknown Maya codex was secretly translated into Spanish, was passed down through a hidden cathedral archive in Spain, and eventually placed into the hands of that famous, Spanish novelist, Herman Melville.

Good catch, CV!

EDIT: I checked. None of the on-line plagiarism checkers do glyphs.
