Something we really needed ...

High-Tech for the Kitchen
Scientists Develop Intelligent Coffee Mug

By Sabine Wygas

Materials to keep drinks cold or hot for longer have been around for quite a while. Now a pair of German scientists has come up with a high-tech mug they claim keeps coffee at the perfect temperature.

The idea came to the researchers at the Christmas market in the Bavarian town of Rosenhiem. "We got upset because the mulled wine" -- Gl├╝hwein, in German -- "was always either too hot or too cold," say Klaus Sedlbauer, the head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics (IBP), and his colleague Herbert Sinnesbichler. "We had to find a solution."

@Foofie,
you need to keep in mind (not that you don't) Walter is German and spent his holocaust years sipping tepid coffee. I don't think he has yet recovered.

@Walter Hinteler,
keeping coffee hot is only 1/3 of the battle. If you let it lie around undrunken, It oxidizes and gets funky tasting. I hate old coffee more than I hate fried liver on a stick.

I don't like hot coffee .... I suppose, I really should try fried liver on a stick, too.

@Foofie,
There are people who exclusively live in the past and that gets tiresome, if
not downright offensive too! Foofie you're an old fool, and nothing but....

Hey Walter...this reminds me of the TV reporter who was asking people on the street what the greatest invention of the 20th century was.

An old wino shuffled up and said it had to be the thermos jug.

The reporter looked puzzled and asked why.

''Well,'' said the wino, ''if you put something hot in it, it keeps it hot. But if you put something cold in it, it keeps it cold.''

''How do it know?''

@Foofie,
Foofie, quit playing the martyr, you're just an old fool. Nothing ever happened to you! You're treating your religion like it is a lifestyle. If you're that much into Judaism why don't you go down to a Kibbutz and help your fellow Jews in Israel? Instead you're complaining to no end about the
Germans while sitting comfy on your worn out sofa.

For your information, I was born and raised in Germany and have plenty
of jewish friends in the U.S. and Israel who neither think like you nor ever
will be as narrow minded as you. So don't hide behind your religion, you're
just a miserable person, period.

@Foofie,
This is, without question, the second-best coffee-mug-holocaust thread I've ever read.

And another thing, Foofie, I just want to say...
