Paraphrased from Wiki:

Peaberry is a type of coffee bean. Normally the coffee plant contains two "beans" but sometimes only one is fertilized and the single seed develops with nothing to flatten it. This [little] pea-shaped bean is known as peaberry. Typically around 5% of all coffee beans...

Peaberries roast differently than flat berry beans; to ensure an even roast in high-grade coffee peaberry beans are separated.

Peaberry beans are widely reputed to roast better than flat berries, being said to roast more evenly, however, some sources claim that the major benefit of peaberry beans is that they have been carefully selected, which is essential for optimal quality regardless of bean shape.
But they're the best.

Just like my huney bunny.

The butterflies will land on you if you're calm and quiet. Then they'll fly off ... unlike your lab deposit ...

Wife and I went to one in Key West. We went and sat down to watch. After about 10 minutes folks started taking pictures of us... because there were butterflies all over my wife's hat! (A few on me, shows most of them butterflies had good taste...)

Did you leave it under his tail and then smell your finger?

Sometimes you baffle MM.

Brookfield Zoo near Chicago has a butterfly exhibit. My daughter and I take my granddaughter to the zoo often. They have a family pass and can go whenever they want. Once we also got to pet sting rays as they swam past us in a large pool. The sting rays even put their 'wing' over the top as if inviting us to touch. They are scratchy like sandpaper on the top and smooth on the bottom.

People ask me why I road rage so bad. Lemme break it down.

Would y'all get mad if someone on the range flagged the firing line and started popping off random shots?

Well, when people drive around with their phone stuck in their ear, or otherwise not paying attention, and they pull out in front of you or someone else, or drive erratically, it's the same damn thing.

A multi thousand pound moving piece of steel is every bit as dangerous as a fully automatic machine gun.

And just like a gun, it requires the operator pay close attention to their actions and respect the lethality of their vehicle just as gun owners respect the lethality of their firearms.

So when someone pulls out in front of me, or cuts me off, they may as well have just had a negligent discharge in my direction. THAT is why I get murderous mad.
