One of the tactics the Union army employed during the Civil War was to blockade all coffee from getting to the southern states in order to keep them quite decaffeinated.

~and of course this led to their eventual loss in 1865.

It is rumored that Spartan soldiers used skulls as pillows when camping out on a campaign.
They likely weren't caricatured skulls, being oddly shaped and uncomfortable.

Beethoven was persnickety about his morning cup of coffee.  
He refused to drink any cup of coffee that was not made with exactly 60 coffee beans. 
Sometimes he would count them out himself to be certain. --His brewing method, reportedly, was grinding 60 coffee beans, pouring hot boiling water over them and letting them steep to death.  It was too ridiculously strong for his contemporaries!

Interestingly, that's about the same amount of beans in a standard cup of coffee-shop coffee nowadays... a little less, even!

It's 'Hear-Hear!' as in listen-listen to what the guy is saying.
not 'Here-Here!' as in location-location.
Unless you want everybody to listen to what YOU have to say...
in which case the expression is 'Hear-Hear-Here-Here!'
or possibly: 'Hear-Here-Hear-Here!'

are you listening to me?

Huskies can run long distances on very little food as they are able to burn a large amount of calories without accessing their fat and carbohydrate stores; Huskies do not tire easily.
They regulate their metabolism better than we humans.
(who are relegated to our daily coffee infusions)

works for me...
