Coffee, one of the most consumed products in the world. We drink a lot of coffee, the whole world consumes close to 2.25 billion cups of coffee every day. That is if I did the math correctly 821.25 billion cups of coffee every year. I should drop out of college and invest in the coffee industry. If only everything was as easy as it looks. Turns out that our beloved coffee is slowly dying. According to scientists, half of the world’s coffee could disappear by 2050. Why? You may ask. Thanks to a fungus known as coffee leaf rust.
This fungus isn’t something new for us. The problem is that our friend good ole climate change has made it easier for the fungus to spread killing more coffee plants. Before I keep explaining this, I will give you a quick coffee lesson.
There are two kinds of coffee that we drink in this world, the arabica and the robusta. The arabica provides a high-quality coffee bean, is more expensive and it’s not something that every coffee farmer can grow. On the other hand, the robusta is of lower quality, cheaper and easier to grow. Now guess which one of these two coffee kinds are being affected by the coffee leaf rust. If you guessed arabica congratulations, you win nothing.
This means that coffee farmers affected by the fungus are changing from arabica to robusta. Should we be excited because the price of coffee will be lowered? Absolutely not! This is not the kind of world we live in. Our good ole friend climate change strikes again! Climate change will also make it difficult for coffee farmers to cultivate robusta coffee beans. If you still don’t see the big picture, this product that so many people are addicted to will become more scarce.
So, how will this affect us coffee drinkers? Prepare to start spending more and more money every year on this product sent by the gods. Your morning kick will be more expensive. However, after giving you all these facts, I don’t believe that we will reach a point where we will pay 15 euros for a cup of coffee. We humans can be smart if you don’t think about all the stupid stuff that is happening in the world at the moment. My opinion is that some scientists will give life to a coffee plant that will withstand rough conditions. Because what I’ve learned in the past few years is that we as humans like to fix only part of the problem instead of fixing the root of the problem itself.
Sometimes I am thinking about the things I look up on the internet, and which things the internet provides me, or suggests. It is possible to speak about the dark net for a long time, and I will of course speak about it some day, but at this point let us look into the world of dank memes.
To make your life easier, I have looked up some definitions in vocabularies for the word “dank memes”. The short description would be: “A meme that is just really radical, cool, and neat.”, and the more explicit definition of a meme which is taken from the Urban Dictionary:
“”The real origin of the term: dank is a slang word from SF bay area that meant ‘good weed, it’s been around at least a decade.. eventually it just came to mean ‘cool’ in SF Bay Area Slang.. so seeing that tech culture emanates from the bay area people just probably started saying “dank meme” as a joke and others started using it ironically or unironically whether they knew or didn’t know the origin. It’s still a pretty dank word I use it all the time.”
I recommend taking with with you along your way in life as I see this as very important piece of information for you life in general. The problem here is that the majority of people do not understand the concept of dank memes, but trust me… I got so many people addicted by the memes I provided for them and the videos I was sending them. Small explanation of the adaptation to memes.
Step one: Shock
Step two: Ignorance
Step three: Boredom
Step four: Trial Period
Step five: Slow adaptation (this varies per individual)
Step six: Addiction
This is how it usually goes with anything, but keep in mind that there are always special cases of the addiction process towards memes.

A lot has been happening in the world lately and by the world I mean the United States, thank you mainstream media. It’s crazy how other events that have happened in the world are not receiving the coverage they deserve. For example, there was a shooting in Quebec, we had a Holocaust Remembrance Day and amid all the confrontation in this world, NATO decided it was best to show off their troops off the coast of Romania in an exercise. You know, the Black Sea, the place where Russia took over Crimea. A sign of peace, don’t you think?
On top of all of this, CATS ARE TAKING OVER! Don’t believe me? You can see the evidence down below. Thank you to redditor: happyantoninscalia for unveiling President Trump’s hidden agenda.
Have you ever thought that the Media picks only on sensational things which will grab public attention? This is because controversy and scandals sell the most in our times. It is of course important to know what is going on in the world, but what is the price to that? Continue reading “White House Update”
