I was really hoping this thread would take off again and my fellow sinfesters could experience the cathartic release of confessing their secrets. but if you find it too embarrassing without ms. frisby to post your secrets anonymously, please feel free to pm them to me and I will post them with every confidence intact.

I drink out of coffee stirrers. They are the perfect size for coffee mugs, so I never thought much about it. But then I recently read that some people are offended by this practice, so I thought I had better come clean to you all.

In honor of this, I am drinking out of two right now - because for some reason that was fun when I was a kid, and I want to recapture the magic.

isn't that why they are hollow? because otherwise, they are just stealing perfectly good coffee from you.

I never used to understand why people didn't drink out of them. But I also still don't understand why people drink coffee.* >_>

*I do but I'm really just emphasizing that I think coffee is disgusting. And I realize this will likely result in someone going BUT HOW CAN YOU NOT or OMG YOU'RE SO WEIRD!

if people actually think drinking through coffee stirrers is offensive then that is all the more reason to do it

I had no idea it was offensive to some. That seems like a really ridiculous thing to get in a fit over. I just don't do it because COME ON I do not have patience for that bullshit, give me ALL THE COFFEE IMMEDIATELY thank you.

Apparently, pretentious women drinking cocktails with coffee stirrers is a thing, and that's why it is offensive. I don't know how common the sentiment is, but it was all I was finding when looking up 'drinking out of coffee stirrers' earlier.

I can attest that drinking out of double coffee stirrers is as exhilarating at 30 as it was at 10, though I still don't know why. And you can get five times as many coffee stirrers as you can big straws.

Also, I don't ever drink coffee, and I usually drink cold drinks out of them. I also don't find them hard to drink out of, so maybe I've just got great suction powers.

I never really trust plastic coffee stirrers (for stirring or drinking) because some sort of deep-set dislike for mixing very hot liquids and plastics. The whole Nalgene BPA fiasco didn't help either. I refuse to use straws with hot drinks (or highly alcoholic ones) for the same reasons.

I generally drink my coffee at temperatures approaching the surface of the sun though, so maybe that's why. Pulling a floppy straw out of your coffee isn't very appetizing.

You can get special paper straws, and there are also glass straws and steel straws. Though none of those, espexially the steel ones, are good for hot drinks. The glass ones are good sometimes, but I've heard they can crack. And I'm sure paper straws get woobly like noodles in hot drinks.

I've used metal straws for hot drinks (specifically a Bombilla) and it worked just fine.

Heh. I've tried to kill myself a couple of times. This year. I'm in therapy so it's fine.

Depending on the type of Cocodamol tablets, that dosage would probably cause death via hepatotoxicity due to the mixture of alcohol, paracetamol, and codeine. It would be extremely unpleasant (I cannot emphasize this enough), with the possibility of lingering for multiple days while your internal organs slowly shut down (your liver and possibly kidneys, most specifically). Meanwhile, you'd have to deal with seizures and intense vomiting and extreme internal pain.

So yeah, don't do it is my best advice.
