    Isn’t “Children of the Cohort” a Stephen King novel?

    I enjoyed the bit of alt right bashing at the end. Looking forward to the legions of Carl of Swindon fans going “You’ve let your politics into the show again Marsh, shame on you for using the association fallacy! Carl of Swindon makes some excellent points, all you have to do is take a week off work, watch all of his videos and you will see them.”

    I’m from the American South originally (now living in Seattle WA). We drink (mostly) sweet tea in the south. Southerners tend to make this tea at home themselves with about 1-2 cups of sugar per pitcher. However, in the rest of the country, especially here on the west coast, people don’t drink sweet tea at all and generally treat me like a crazy person for liking it. Here in Seattle, tea is made with ice (but no sugar) in the spring/summer, while it is prepared hot during colder months. Hope that clears up some of the tea confusion. 😛

    Hit the post button before I was finished and I have no idea how to edit. Sorry! Anyhoo. I believe that the northeast generally consumes tea without sugar, much like the west coast. Basically, it is just the south that loves MASSIVE amounts of sugar in their black tea.
