Further evidence that the coming generation are helpless idiots @ 12:54 pm

In addition to not having to walk uphill both ways to school, students will no longer have to deal with the difficulty of opening milk cartons, a task apparently beyond the capabilities of this new race of Morlock-like beings.

I'd say they're far more Eloi than Morlock. Pretty, but completely useless. May their fingers fall off.

My dislike of milk goes waaay back, but adding it, was the gradeschool milk carton: never as cold as you wanted it to be; opening reluctantly, possibly with a thin spot on the edge, forming its own dribble cup; with an unpleasant, rough, hairy torn-cardboard feel against your lips as you drank from it; and with a sour-milk smell adhering to the opening. No, I think the new plastic containers are a big improvement.

Welcome to your non-lurky not-quite-so-anonymous self!

I remember the same drawbacks as you do, but I think dealing with problematical milk cartons made me a stronger person. Ha.

However, I'm lactose intolerant, so it doesn't really affect me one way or the other. I buy soy milk in a tetra pak.

I never thought I'd see the day when juice bottles would be referred to as "sexy."

''Those ... square containers are awfully hard for kids,'' ...''Teachers say you can spend the whole lunch period just walking around and opening those containers.''

damn tricky cartons.

I spent many a childhood lunch cracking open the peel on other kids' oranges. However, I also spent a lot of time in emergency rooms after falling over on level ground and shit like that, so I can't mock anyone for lack of coordination.

Milk in cartons tastes better, though, and has more vitamins. -K-
