While we’re on the subject of the money-grubbing Florida rodent:

I haven’t retained much from the Latin lessons I took for a year before I switched to French, but I do remember that Mickey Mouse’s Latin name is “Michael Musculus”.

    I was just at a conference at one of their hotels, and from talking with one of the event staff found out a large air pot carafe of coffee runs $60. The show ran through $11,000 in coffee in one(!) morning the day after an after-hours reception at a local bar….

    $60 cost for a carafe of coffee? Does that include the depreciation on the machinery to make the coffee as well as overhead on the building? I recall a co-worker calculating a few years back that the variable costs on a pot of coffee ran well under a dollar (this was before $1.00/ounce Starbucks and Peets and other gourmet coffee, which I will allow might bring the cost per cup closer to a dollar. But, $11,000 for coffee, I can believe THAT markup. A restaurant makes its profits on drinks, and that includes coffee.
