Keurig B30 won't brew

Has anyone had any problems with a Keurig (K-cup) B30 coffee maker? My mom's is on the fritz and I'm having difficulty fixing it for her. The water heats up but doesn't make it to the cup. I've googled and no luck.

Why does caffeine give me a paradoxical effect?

For the past year, caffeine has had a strange effect on me. I drink soda or coffee -- and within minutes, I feel groggy, fuzzy headed, and almost kind of drunk. I get absolutely no stimulating effects. The more I drink, the more fuzzy-drunk I feel. Caffeine used to make me feel wonderful -- awake, cheerful, on-point. I've never drank an excessive amount (2 coffees a day, max). Can anyone explain what might be going on in my brain chemicals?

How to make coffee ice cream pop?

How can I make a strongly coffee-flavored ice-cream pop, not using an ice-cream maker, which has a firm but creamy texture, not an icy popsicle-like texture? Preferably low fat. Although I have a sneaking suspicion that fat content is a large part of the reason for the difference between ice cream and popsicles...

What's a Casual "Let's Get Together" Phrase if "Go for Coffee" or "Go for a Drink" Won't Work Well?

Semantic question: When initially proposing a "getting to know you" predate, the common invitation is to go get some coffee or to go get a drink. If you don't enjoy coffee or alcohol (yet), what alternate phrase can you use that doesn't sound weird? "Get a soda" sounds like "let's go get a malted!", and proposing "getting a drink" and then not drinking alcohol yourself can be problematic — and engaging in even a one- or two-sentence-long explanation about how you don't drink takes the question's tone away from casual and into "sounds complicated-neurotic" territory.
