    I saw something I've never seen on an exam today: I'm guessing the student couldn't quite remember the distinction between your and you're, so she hedged her bets with you'r.

    Also, MrG will love this one: instead of gratification, I had a student write gradification.

    He does not know what his grade is yet. (I can't remember, honestly, because I don't have it with me.) At any rate, if it's a good grade, I'd love to write "congradulations" at the top of the page.

    :rolleyes: You got me.


    Never said it was. But the chemicals in the beans don't change significantly from the grinding process, and stored away from heat and light there's really nothing to cause much of a reaction. Any reactions that do take place would be incredibly slow, hence the extremely long shelf-life. The expiration dates are usually the same for both bean and ground forms for this reason. There's just not much of a difference. If anything, I figure mechanical agitation of the grounds would cause the coffee to deteriorate more than any chemical reaction. But I'm not a chemist and this is just my intuition, bolstered by the fact that expiration dates on ground and bean form of coffee are similar from what I recall.


    Nonsense. See above. Also, the bag will not burst since it needs to reach its dimensions at standard air pressure before it even endures any strain. Not all factory-ground coffee is stored in bags, anyway.

    I've never seen anyone adjust the grinder. If they do it, it's probably at the start of their shift.

    He can and probably would, I'm sure. Still, I laugh at that thread when I see it because it's a big hoo-hah over nothing and not any different from the goofballs on Chowhound or whatever foodie sites there are discussing their silly pretentious hobby of seeing who has tasted the rarest foodstuffs, the vast majority of which are inferior to what's more or less considered a no-frills, no-fuss, standard version made elsewhere.

    I disagree. Italian chocolate isn't the 'world-best' by any means. It's good, but it's just an inferior version of stuff from Switzerland, France, and Belgium. Specifically, I think Italians make the chocolate too sweet because otherwise it comes out too bitter. But I don't know enough about the process, I just know that I consider the chocolate boutiques and factories here to produce generally-overpriced chocolate that's too 'candied' for me.

    Thanks for everyone participating in this little digression, though. It's given me a reason to check some things out and see if it'll change some old preferences.

    Congrats.

    What type of law do you plan to specialize in? (If you say "med-mal" you are dead to me.)
