RAMPAGE COFFEE CO RIOT BLEND REVIEW

Image
Rampage Coffee Co. is located in Saskatoon Saskatchewan and is a small batch coffee roasting company that makes 3 different and very unique blends.
The company is still small and the owners still work in other jobs. They are also very community minded and donate part of the profits to upstart artists, musicians and the like.
Today I fired up a fresh ground pot of "Riot Coffee". I had to say it was a very enjoyable experience.
There was a very fresh taste to the coffee, a lot more fresh that I have ever had the pleasure to experience in the past. Also had hints of caramel and chocolate in the background. The acidity was low compared to a lot of coffee I have had and it was only slightly bitter. It was a smooth cup of coffee and the aroma was wonderful and full bodied.
This is how I would like coffee to be. You can't expect to get any more fresh than this. It is made per order on a Monday, packaged on a Tuesday then mailed out on a Wednesday. Depending on where you are in Cana…

GOD IS CONTROL

Image
In my humble opinion I think that religion was born of the desire to control the masses and keep them in line. With rules like "if you don't believe you will be punished for all of eternity", how can you think any less? Does a loving parent demand 100% loyalty all of the time under threat of torture beyond imagining? No they don't.
The modern form of what we call religion in the west (Christianity) was formed for the most part in a time of crushing poverty and discontent. It was not enough to just say "we will kill you if you don't follow", there had to be more control then that.
The fact that torture and terror where used to back up the demand that you follow the words in a book should tell you something. Fear was the motivator in the beginning then along the line it became belief and a feeling of belonging that controlled the actions of people.
In the early days it was beating them over the head with the fact that God wants you to be the best slave to th…

I JUST DON'T AGREE

Image
So did this quiz on how gay you are. Well it said "If Elton John was a candle you would be a flame thrower". Come on, Not even. Look how manly I am over here (glances at the Pusheen the cat toys on every flat surface in the apartment).
Then there is the fact that my best friend is a woman I'm not romantically interested in. Oh wait...
There was that time I made love with that woman who looked like a lumber jack... This is not helping either.
Never mind.

BEANS, COFFEE AND DRUGS

Image
An entire moth of beans and tomatoes to be cooked up as food on my "bean diet". Also a moths worth of coffee and a pile of medication. On the far left we have the leftover meds from last time. I had made a trip to get a medicated cream, so I got refills while I was at it, so now it looks like I'm completely screwed with the hoard of meds I have up there LOL. As for the canned goods, they are lower in salt than other discount brands - so it's all good. The coffee was because I could not afford my normal Nabob, but I realized this is not bad for the price and I'm sticking with it from now on. The rest of the food is in the fridge. I have several bags of frozen veggies and some hotdogs and buns in the freezer. Once a week I do hotdogs instead of the bean mix. Anyways, shopping went well this time and I got a good saving and a lot of points - so next month will be good as well because of the $20 off I will get - with luck there will be the same deal on the canned goo…

ICYHOT ADVANCED REVIEW

Image
OK I got this off Amazon the other day and have tried it several times now. I am liking how it's working. I have used the original for a long time and it always worked for me. The Advanced seems to be working even better.
I however don't like the smell of this stuff. The original was not as noticeable. This has a citric smell to it not just the small of the Camphor and the Menthol. I am sure it's to hide the smell of Camphor which is not that great, but I don't like it. I will however put up with the smell because it does the job.
I am resistant to most over the counter pain meds and narcotic pain meds to an extreme when it comes to pain relief. For the most part nothing works well for me. So it's nice that this will work on my back and neck or knees when I need it.
I still don't get how this stuff works localized like it does. To me it makes no sense, I just know it does work. You would think it would get into the blood system and distribute, but it seems to just…

BIG DIFFERENCE IN THE PRICE PER UNIT

Image
Here is an interesting one. I use this to try and clear up a reaction I had to contaminated inc in a tattoo I got. Well, the tattoo is TOAST, but that's not what I want to talk about.
I originally got a scrip for a small amount of this stuff. The original tube was 1/6 the size of this one. The price difference of this was $5 between the small and large tube. I find that interesting and it shows you just how much you get screwed by the drug companies.
It's not the only thing of course, a lot of products the small size is lot more money per volume. The strange thing is now that people have realized that, now and then you will get a large size that is more money per volume than the smaller size. You really have to look and see.
When I get toilet paper for example I price it out per unit (roll) and see if the on sale one is the best deal and now and then it's not.
I've also noticed a lot of stores will up the price of something 15% 2 or 3 weeks before a sale then put it on for…
