It took me until a few weeks shy of my 40th birthday to discover that the cups marked on a coffee pot are not 8-ounce cups. They're actually 6 ounces. I couldn't figure out why I made "8 cups" of coffee for iced coffee tomorrow and discovered it did not fill two quart jars. It made 6 cups. Okay, so I'm a little slow, but this is a revelation to me. Shabbat shalom!
