Coffee extinct by 2080?

Lies and slander, I say!

If there is any truth to a recent study by Kew Gardens then there is a possibility that climate change can wipe out the vast majority of the world's wild arabica coffee plants by the year 2080. 99.7 percent of the bean growing regions of the world would become too hot to support the plant, thus driving it to extinction.

What's wrong with you, brain?

Strange dream-like phenomenon

This was by far the absolute weirdest experience ever. Let's start by clearing something up: I've been having a really really screwed up sleeping schedule as of late. I am usually in bed somewhere around 6 a.m. and awake by no later than 10 at best. I realize this alone can do insane things to the functions of one's mind. Yet I'm stumped on exactly how this situation played out.

Giving it to charity

Lucas not keeping most of his profit

By now everyone is well aware of the buy-out of Lucasfilm by the Walt Disney Company. With the amount of talk this generates and the uproar it's caused in diehard fans, it's easy to get swept up and miss “even more” news coming out of this deal.

The $4.05 billion sale of Lucasfilm should be final soon, which honestly I'm shocked Lucasfilm went for so cheap. George owns 100 percent of that corporation, which then means all that money goes straight to him. However in a move to "celebrate a new direction in life and focus more on philanthropy, it has been decided that a majority of the money from the sale will be sent to charity." That's basically saying that Star Wars was the most successful bake sale in history.
