    I find if I eat cake and chocolate after green tea I go back to zero calories its truly miraculous.

    I noticed when I tell people that I exercise every day and then I eat less or I eat better things like 2 cups of spinach instead of 2 cups of sesame chicken there are shocked or their disappointed or they say oh you'll never keep the weight off that way... But if I make something funny up everybody wants to try it. Lately I've been losing weight again and people have been remarking about it to shut them up I told him that chasing down the animals to sacrifice to Satan is a lot of calories burned! Obviously they know I'm joking but it's not funny they get upset and they don't bother me about my diet again

    I love correlation =/= causation graphs!

    Inverse though it may be, my favourite is always going to be that the decrease of piRRRRates on the open seas correlates to the increase in the average global temperature

    My favorite responses I've gotten when I tell people I count calories to lose weight:
    "I count calories."
    "Oh I tried that... but i would eat 1200 calories a day and not lose anything."

    and my recent favorite:

    "How do you count calories?"
    "Well I weigh every single thing I eat."
    "Oh... that's too much... I would rather be fat."

    Haven't you heard about the Lose Lard Latte?

    Green tea is so yesterday...

    :)

    Wait.... isn't that the same thing as Bulletproof Coffee?

    Aw man, when I was at Uni, Wednesdays I had a tute that finished at 1, then a philosophy class that started at 5. The Uni bar happened to have a deal on Wednesdays where you got 2 shots of Vodka and a can of Red Bull for $6. I think you were supposed to share it with a friend or something - we used to just put the lot into a pint glass. Nary a sober philosophy class occurred.

    Sisters from another mister! Same thing here, but Mondays. Had lectures until 12pm, then an evening tute that started at 7pm (all other times clashed with my practical labs). Archaeology tutes were always interesting through a beer goggle gaze.

    Does this count as hijacking the thread? I'm sure we were talking about tea.... Is there tea flavoured vodka? Could we market that instead?

    This was hilarious. Congrats on your weight loss.

    I think we should all start saying that wine is our secret and make the office a little bit more fun.
