When I lived in Taiwan we used to (not sure if we still do) buy hot soup from stalls and we carry them in very thin transparent plastic bags.

For cold beverages, it's not that unusual is it? I thought this is a popular thing

Those aren't exactly bags.
The soup thing sounds dangerous, I would be so paranoid of sharp corners on things.

But why? Why would you ever put beverages in a bag?
Have you read the wiki page?

I like the idea of milk bags although I've never seen them in the uk. The plastic bottles we get always leak if you lay them down, are prone to breaking and take up far too much room in my recycling bin.

Yeah, nothing as reliable as a half millimeter thick plastic sheet.

True but once you get them home you can decant them to a reusable jug. The environmental implications have sold the idea to me.

The thick white plastic bottles I get are indestructible. For recycle I loosen the cap, step on the bottle to whoosh out the air, then tighten the cap again.

On the other hand some water bottles are so thin that they are hard to open. By that I mean that if I squeeze the middle of the bottle to open the cap I get a bath when the cap loosens.. Put the bottom of the thin bottles in the palm of your hand and open the cap carefully.

This information is for professionals only, do not try this at home.

[sarcasm] Hey you know what's more fun than having two surgeries a week apart? Being on antibiotics for two weeks straight leading to a serious case of the runs! [/sarcasm]

I am now stocked up on yogurt and buttermilk. Just need to find some miso and figure out how to make stuff with it.

At least my boss is cool with all the time off I have taken. I get to do some paperwork for Grad school, play on PF for a bit and, best of all, catch up on the new Cosmos episodes.

In other news, I'm not overly impressed with the educator.com courses. They are likely useful as an adjunct to a college course but on their own they are like a pre-recorded tutoring session (atleast the stats and ODE courses, haven't looked into the others).

I read a very disturbing yet relatable quote today

I agree with lisab.

One's word, honor, credibility, self respect -- these are things worth having.

I agree with collinsmark.

I equate cheating, with laziness, which, IMHO, should to be squashed, like a bug.

Oh how noble and good you all look on paper...

I agree with whatever at the time works best for me. Sometimes we all cheat and you can all go to hell if you tell me you haven't.
