Since I never go to Wal-Mart and the nearest Costco is 200 miles away I reckon I'll never see them.

Well, don't rule it out, one thing about the business world, if something catches on, it spreads to other areas.  So, if it goes over well at Wal-Mart and Costco, I expect other stories (Target, et all) would copy it.

I don't know why we don't go back to the old cardboard milk cartons, bio-degradable and eco friendly. Unlike the plastic ones which last forever and are made from petroleum.  Tiny little paper cap and recycle the rest.

Well, they still have those for half-gallons.  Did they ever use them for a full gallon? 

Hell what was wrong with the glass ones?

Dunno, although it does have this annoying habit of breaking when you drop it.  Also, I doubt mass manufacturing of glass is cheaper than the alternatives.

You know, I just thought this was the usual complaining, but I was wrong.  I used one of these today and it gushed out all over the counter.  VERY poor design.

A local example for me.  Where I live we have roughly 4 chain grocery stores (Giant Foods, Weis Markets, Wegmans, and Surefine Markets)  we also have a bunch of smaller family markets as well.  Anyways Weis started to sell Jones Soda products in their stores.  For a long time the only places I could them were gas stations.  Anyways so Weis started carrying Jones soda in their stores.  While it was great the selection was limited so it was a tad disappointing.  Anyways when I knew Weis had it, Giant would soon follow suit.  Some months later the eventually had it.  I didn't include Wegmans in this one since they had it from the time the store near me opened up.  I'm not sure if Surefine has it, since the closest one to me is 12 miles away and I don't feel like driving to go there.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
