Maybe they should make manhole covers out of plastic bags, too.

Also the metric system is superior, UHT doesn't taste like shite (and is exactly what Pakoito meant), and trying to measure things by cups/glasses/bowls is stupid because they are not standardised units.

The reason I'm glad I don't use the metric system is the same reason I'm glad there are still different dialects of English.
I like my containers convenient and my languages and measuring systems eccentric.

this system doesn't look that much more inconvenient to a plastic jug, I still wouldn't trust 7am me to not spill it everywhere. And I'm not arguing that the metric system isn't superior, I just don't see why we should stop using pints for things like beer and milk when everyone already has a clear idea of what a pint is.

Hospitals made out of plastic bags would be so easy and cheap to make, so light on material costs, so easy to modify for different sizes, produce so few waste materials, be so easy to recycle and transport.
Hospitals made out of plastic bags are the future. Heck, they're probably used in Canada already.

In the the wide-open bits of the US, a lot milk is sold by regional dairies who have ironed out some sort of mafia style territory system. A couple of national syndicates will try and elbow in every so often, but they can't touch the local prices since the cows are usually within a couple hundred miles of the stores. Watching with their big sad eyes.
Anyway, you can get different milk packaging just by visiting the grocery a few counties over as a result. Also different flavors of ice cream and various cheeses. Someday the MILK LORDS will take over, but they'll have a fight on their hands.. hooves.

Oh grief, someone in our flat bought UHT milk and I just poured it on my cereal. Blegh. My crunchy nut is RUINED!

UHT is horrible, I have no idea why anyone can stand that stuff. Sure when the apocalypse happens we might have to get used to it. But until that day happens I think I will get the nice stuff.

Plastic bags as a vessel for selling and supplying milk, compared to other methods, are at worst mildly inconvenient and at best cheaper, more ecologically sound, easier way to do it.
Plastic Hospitals, compared to regular Hospitals, would be sh*t.
Plastic bags for Milk are hardly a change in quality from what we currently have, they still function largely the same way. Plastic Hospitals, on the other hand, would NOT function anything like current Hospitals do.
So, OK. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe you CAN use the same reasons (if you're an idiot)... But, it doesn't mean those reasons will be convincing, as even a cursory look at the situation will tell you.
Just extend your logic, for even a tiny fraction of time Berzee. You're saying that the arguments for A, any A in the world whatsoever, can be used for B, regardless of how wildly, vastly, incomprehensibly different B is from A.

@DigitalSignalX -- it's "del" and "/del" in angle brackets.

However, now that you've brought degrees of inconvenience and other such disadvantages into the problem (instead of only the advantages), of course only the maddest (geniusest!?) of men would attempt such a hospital revolution as I propose.
