Plastic sandwich containers

If I could make every last clear-plastic takeout container disappear from the face of the earth by waving my hand, I would do that. Is there anyone who doesn’t hate these things? Who doesn’t wince at that sharp loud sound that happens when you try to compress or scrunch them into a garbage can? Who doesn’t find them generally irritating and pointless and just awful? Styrofoam sandwich-and-potato-salad containers are nearly as bad, but at least they aren’t so noisy.

  1. Norman Mailer thought the devil lived in plastic. I tend to agree (on a less literal note than Mailer intended).
    Just trying to rip open a hermetically sealed bag of potato chips is enuf to convice the hungriest atheist.

  2. Have y’all read “The World Without Us” by Weisman? All this fucking plastic is going to be here for a billion years. Damn us. Damn us all.

  3. So pro-gun advocates should be happy to know that Bush’s reversal of Clinton’s semi-automatic weapon ban lead to (surprise, surprise) eight people in L.A. being injured by a nut with a semi-automatic. But they’re not white, so who cares, right?

  4. Here’s an idea… instead of “scrunching” them into a garbage can, how about finding a recycle bin?
    Styrofoam is actually much worse as it can’t be recycled.
    Sorry… that’s the liberal independent in me coming out.

  5. “Slow news day,” LOL. I love how Jeff’s rug is always getting a starring role on this site, cause man, it ties the room together.

  6. Whole Foods uses waxed cardboard boxes in their salad bars now and they seem to work just fine to me.
    The rest of the store (especially the desert section) is still full of those godawful plastic containers though.

  7. Not a big fan of plastic or styrofoam, they always melt through in the microwave. Although the thought of bread pudding in a bag is less than appetizing.
    I’m also not really much of an environmentalist. Teleportation technology probably isn’t too far off, in 50 years we’ll be zapping all our garbage into a black hole.
    If not, oh well. I’m never having kids and I could honestly give half a shit about anyone else’s. Looking at the current model of ignorant, apathetic little shit that people are making nowadays, it won’t be much of a loss.
