^ Perfect .gif for the occasion.

Don't worry about any continued awkwardness, guys. I'm out. Seriously.
It's been fun for the 4+ years I've been a member of this board, and most of you are really cool, but the joy of posting here has pretty much been removed at this point...

Adiós.

B) fake pumpkin flavored coffee is the grossest misappropriation of taste this side of cherry wheat beer.

Didn't Starbucks claim that they started using real pumpkin a couple years ago?  I wouldn't know, never actually tried it.

I'll say this though: I love pumpkin ale.  Love love love it.  Why is it even a seasonal thing?  I would drink it year round if I could...

Clearly I've missed some sort of long running feud here.

Can we get a special badge for Rucks that says "This goes way beyond pumpkin spice" underneath it?

You best be back, @Frostillicus . :(

Would it be considered an abuse of mod powers to make that a thing?

Forum drama has always been a weird thing considering that every forum has an ignore function which it seems people are hellbent on not using as they prefer seeing whatever causes issues for them instead of blissful ignorance.

Let's all carve a pumpkin, roast the seeds, sprinkle them with pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg), and enjoy with a nice cold glass of apple cider. 

Come on, who's with me?  We'll wear costumes and watch classic monster movies and everything. 

(I love roasted pumpkin seeds.  They taste like earthier popcorn and they're apparently rather healthy.)

As for haps, earlier this month, I was able to hold my nightly plank for anywhere from 2:45- 3:00 minutes, but this past week I'm barely able to hold it for 2:30 without buckling.  What's up with that?

At the risk of dragging out a nonsensical argument even further...

Why is anyone angry about pumpkin spice in the first place?  If you don't like it don't drink it.  But using it as a symbol of American complacency is just...strange.

Whatever you might think about their coffee, Starbucks treats their employees very well.  They pay well, offer health care benefits even for part time employees (which they are definitely not required to do and many places try to keep people part time specifically to not have to give them health care benefits), and is consistently ranked as one of the best companies in America to work for.  Walmart they ain't.  I think you can rightfully make the argument that places like Walmart have been very destructive to communities, forcing people into low-paying dead-end jobs as they drive every other place out of business.  You can make a moral argument for not shopping there.

But Starbucks?  That's just nonsense.

Not liking their coffee doesn't put you on any kind of moral high ground.  And it certainly doesn't give you the right to condemn people for liking it.

Pretty sure Rucks was just starting it as a joke, as being "basic" is literally just being stereotypically white and boring....I honestly giggled...

Then again, this is the same guy who actually used the word cisgender as an arguementative phrase against me... so there's that.

Also, coffee sucks.

TASTY!

Cisgender just means that you were born the gender you identify with as opposed to transgender people. It's just a word, don't be scared.

I came here to complain about the fact that my attempt to get properly fitting clothes is somehow forcing my posture to correct itself. And while that is something I have been trying to do fro a while, it freaking hurts. What the heck did I just walk into? It has only been 10 hours since I was last here, I am so confused. O.o

Also, coffee sucks.
Well at least there is some sanity in here.

Count me in.  I think I'll microwave my cider, though.  The weather up here is starting to turn.

I thought I was the only person in the entire universe who doesn't like coffee.

The basic thing WAS a joke...

But everything else wasn't about coffee, it was about a whole bunch of other issues that he and I had argued about over the last few years (that there is no point getting into now) and gross pumpkin coffee was just the straw that broke the camels back.

Admittedly, the cisgender thing was me being too preachy.  It's not really my place to use that term (in the manner in which I was trying to use it) anyhow.

It gives me terrible heartburns... so yeah... I haven't drank it in years.
