Aluminum Foil In The 21ST Century
« on: January 15, 2020, 07:03:48 PM »
A petty issue and question of mine ... Why is it that living in the 21ST century we are still having to use the crappy and flimsy cardboard dispensers of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries?

You know the ones.

The rectangular cardboard boxes with the tearing, ripping, foil destroying ... cutting edge thingy on the outside!

Even the eight dollar foil I buy rips the foil to shreds as if I had let the cat loose on it!😟

I cut it with a knife. Never use the  'cutting edge thingy'.
Same with saran-wrap.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

I do as well.  But I realize it has been Aluminum Since before my parents born.  Strange I use the name of product I've never seen.

@rustynail

I actually thought that my question would be answered with a bunch of wisecracks.
(I never really believed that there would be a sincere answer!)

I can't Thank You enough!

Even at the 'almost' age of seventy .. You showed me that Everyone, regardless of age, can learn something new!

I'll bet that there aren't many folks that knew about this!

Again ... Thanks!

I've known about that "hack" with the aluminum foil box for years.  It's written down, right there on the box where you poke your fingers.  And I never in my life called it "tin foil."   :shrug:
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.
