Not the normal submission I know but I felt the need to share. All I can say is that I feel bad for the robin that had to make that drink.
Reblogging because I like making Alan cry
Wait, I think I’ve heard of this! It’s like this urban legend among Starbucks barristas - supposedly, this guy came into a store when the place was dead, and asked how he could make the most expensive Starbucks drink possible. Supposedly, the barristas decided to take him at his word, and they constructed this monstrosity - each version I’ve heard has a different absurd ingredients list, but this might be the actual Patient Zero right here - just because they were bored and the guy was really cool about it. Apparently he left them a fucking awesome tip, too, which I could believe since he clearly had a wad of cash on him at the time (as evidenced by the “change due” at the bottom of the receipt).
So actually, rather than make me cry, I’m sorta happy to have evidence that this story might be real!
EDIT: Rachel pointed out the date on this, which is only a couple of days ago, and I was told this story months ago. So maybe… maybe this is a case of an urban legend coming true via the telling of it, and someone wanting to make it real? Either way - fascinating.
I like that there are urban legends about coffee in the barrista circle.
Like there’s a crazy caffeine Knight’s Templar mystery novel in the making, right there.
I bet that tastes like ass
I don’t know what really happened, ‘cause most baristas know that after one syrup the others are free except for chai. But holy fuck those 50 shots. That has to taste like coffee beans.
A 2500 year old mummy that had some amazing tattoos.
NO FUCKING WAY.
YO HOLD ON.
IT GETS BETTER.
This mummy, found in the Altai mountains of Siberia, is actually that of a young woman who died at about the age of twenty-five; she is thought to have been a member of the Pazyryk tribe.
She was buried with six horses and two similarly-tattooed men (the horned griffon that decorates her shoulder also appears on the man buried closest to her, covering most of his right side), possibly escorts. She was also wearing a horse-hair wig, silk, and elaborate boots, which is all a level of ceremony that would have likely only been accorded to a woman of high rank. You didn’t get inked like this unless you were very important, and had worked your way up to that importance.
…Hence, of course, the references to her by researchers as ‘The Ukok Princess,’ although due to the lack of weapons in her grave they have concluded that the woman was in fact a healer or a storyteller.
And now I’m all consumed with curiosity: Who was she? What amazing things did she accomplish? Why these symbols, and what did they mean? Who were the two men alongside her?
The most informative article about it can be found here, although I would completely eat up any other information you guys could find.
