Studies have shown (according to Dave Ramsey) that whenever you actually have to hand over cash to someone else, the little neurons in your brain actually fire off in such a way that it mimics a painful experience. However, whenever you pay using a card, the brain patterns are quite a bit different; the "pain patterns" are not there. There's something about handing over a stack of money to someone for a drum set as opposed to just swiping a card. Those are two different experiences in my book. When I bought my Taylor guitar in $100 bills, I still remember what that felt like. I don't think I had held that much money in my hand at one time, and while I enjoy my guitar, I won't soon forget what that felt like.

If I don't have to cash to pay for new gear, I don't buy it. Also, whenever I buy something, something has to go. I only buy what I need, not what I want. Each piece of gear I own has a specific purpose. What doesn't serve my needs gets sold. As a matter of fact, I need to put some stuff on Craigslist this week.

Death Wish will ship to you. https://www.deathwishcoffee.com/. If it would get me free coffee for life, I would totally get their logo tattooed on me.
I'd go for the "Death Cups" (I use a pod machine at work) but they would have to be compatible with the Caffitaly system to work (can't tell from the website unfortunately).

It's some variety of nightmare bean.
I drank a cup of that stuff and then told everyone I wanted to go home.
I think it's brewed with lsd and clowns.

We buy the Death Cups. Our machine is Keurig compatable, don't know if that helps.
