    Well, the title makes anything I write here a bit redundant...

    I'll start off with a couple, and you keep the ball rolling, keep it fun but at the same time factual.


    You know you are in Norway when the hardest thin a unemployed person has to do is decide if he/she wants the Iphone 5 or the new samsung model..

    You know you are in Norway when you have pay $20 (USD) for a pint of beer at a restaurant.

    You know you are in Zambia when a cop pulls you over, checks your vehicle registration card and says you must change it because it says the car is yellow, when in fact "Your car is yellow with a white roof, so you must change it to say multicoloured".

    Yes, multicoloured would be better because its so accurate.

    You know you're in Gaza when you are awoken by an explosion at 2am to find that your children have been reduced to their component parts by a "carefully" aimed shell.

    I'd buy it if it came in bags... IIRC Waitorse and a few other places used to sell it in bags... shame it didn't take off because most brits are too lazy to wash a jug...

    Tried those things, they were a pain in the tits. Easily punctured accidentally by other stuff in shopping bags and annoying to store in a fridge unlike a bottle which sits on a shelf nicely as it can retain its shape. Nice idea but not brilliant in reality IMO

    My Local Tesco and Sainsburys both sell milk in bags, I've never tried them because of the came concerns as RTT.

    Yes, we at Waitrose did sell it, I think it was more of a trail than anything. There's been a major drive in most supermarkets to use less packaging on products, especially on fish and meat products.

    I did buy them when they were available, but they were nowhere near as big as the ones TheBlackSwordsMan showed... I found them no more prone to leaking than the bottles [in fact i cant recall ever having one leak/burst, not so with the plastic bottles which are getting ever flimsier]

    Fixed that one for you ;)

    you know your in England when you have to navigate a minefield of ''hooded youth's'' to get to your local Tesco's

    also with the whole Milk in bags idea, i think its fantastic and did buy it when it was available but it was discontinued
    'one middle aged gentleman - milk in bags what a retarded idea it would just fall over and spill everywhere'
    ' me - have you not heard of placing the bag in a jug and pouring it from there ? '
    'middle aged gentleman' wouldn't it just fall out of the jug ???

    sigh....
