because Jams O'Donnell commanded me to do so.
No, you fool! Something interesting, not "something interesting."
Don't listen to the voices in your head, unless they tell you to burn stuff down - that is ok.

How come some rich countries such as UK or Norway have so lousy, bad tasted milk? It's like the farmer never cleaned the cows tits, and makes the milk watery and taste like grass and poo. Lasts one afternoon outside the fridge and two days inside.
Pasteurization, seriously. Milk tastes cleaner and can last months outside the fridge, in summer, in Spain. It's 15 year old tech, cheap enough for everyone here to have it.
In related news, did you know they've made great strides in dried milk recently? (The powder you add water to). It used to taste awful like 10 years ago, but now it tastes almost like normal 2%! if you aren't paying too close of attention you might even be fooled for a minute or two
We keep some in our pantry for those times you run out of milk and are just too tired to drive 5 minutes to the milk shop
Speaking as someone who handles these kind of milkbags on a daily basis where I work, I cannot put into words how much hate me and my fellow workers have towards these kind of bags.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I just don't understand why they exist. Is there something wrong with milk bottles/cartons? Have I been unable to reach peak milk pouring efficiency all this time? Surely some Canadian RPSers have an answer to this, or at least an apology to offer.
We have milk bags in cafeterias in the US, you only see them when the dispenser is being refilled, but they look really hard to deal with, also gross.
I saw a milkbag in the fridege in our house once and was profoundly confused for at least an hour afterwards. Thankfully I've since recovered from this traumatic experience. The fact it was fully skimmed milk made it all the worst. How anyone prefers that junk is beyond me.
The jugs can be recycled, the cardboard cartons can be recycled and the bags can be recycled. Doesn't really matter what you make it out of if it's going to end up in a land fill because no one is going to recycle - frankly I'd rather the landfills be filled with the cardboard kind. My guess is the bags are simply cheaper to make, and they can make more money because obviously the price isn't going down.
In the states, I've noticed all sorts of crap like a 5 LB bag of flour is now really 4.5, but costs the same. Ditto that sort of strategy for sugar, coffee, oil, etc.
All times I have enjoyed greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those that loved me, and alone.
