EU To Ban Olive Oil Bottles From Restaurants

Traditional olive oil jugs are to be banned from restaurants across Europe following a decision in Brussels.

The European Commission has declared that only non-refillable, pre-packaged factory bottles with tamperproof lids can be used from 2014. It will end the practice of restaurants sourcing their own artisan products to be used in bottles and dipping bowls.

How did humankind manage to survive all these many years without government regulation of every single freakin' aspect of their lives?
“My god! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy? I confess I had no idea of it myself.” Jefferson writing to Madison on America in 1785 while in Paris.

It takes generations of grooming to get a populace to the point where they feel incapable. My parent's generation, both here and in Europe would have told the powers that be to shove it.

You wouldn't believe how unpopular this is. Not so much here, but my mother in law and sister in law (Italy) won't shut up about it.
