Gone with the wind...

Is there any sort of irrational fear you have that you identify AS irrational, but still fear it?

For me, I am afraid to go up in a hot air balloon, despite their only being 21 deaths directly related to being in a hot air balloon from 2002-2016 (https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/hot-air-balloon-accident/how-deadly-hot-air-ballooning-fatalities-are-rare-stats-show-n102116), and no one is forcing me to go up in one! I was thinking of this today as I flew through the air in a metal tube going hundreds of miles an hour while being 32k feet above the solid ground. Kinda ridiculous when you think of it.

Best instant coffee?

Hi peeps, I'm planning an event in June. I don't want to rent or lug a coffee urn or coffee maker. I plan on bringing a kettle and having tea and hot chocolate.

The community hall isn't near a Tim's or SBUX, so I can't get a coffee to go because it would be cold by the time people arrived,

I don't drink coffee so I am at a loss.

What is the best instant coffee that I could bring for coffee lovers that is made with hot water?

EDIT: Turns out Mom has a mini coffee machine that I can borrow. I will get some Cafe Bustelo just in case :)

end of year oblivion question

if you want to do something depressing, look at all the species that have gone extinct in your lifetime.

that being said, is there something that you wish would go extinct (doesn't have to be an animal)?

bonus...what do you think would be the far-reaching consequences of that extinction?

(i would say humorous or non-humorous welcome, but it's pointless since people will do whatever they want anyway! 😁)
