(Telegraph)   The reason you pay so much for milk and bread at the supermarket is because the supermarket needs to overcharge you for everyday food items in order to afford to sell its alcohol at low, low prices   (telegraph.co.uk) divider line 19

Milk in the US is expensive because Congress mandates a minimum price. Why does Congress hate children with rickets?

I have gathered, after hanging around Fark, that if you drink enough beer you don't need bread, plus the Tums taken for the alcoholic gastritis supply all the calcium one needs.

Should I get out more I wonder.

ladyfortuna: ramblinwreck: jm105: They sell alcohol at supermarkets?

/Lives in PA

In CA, grocery stores sell everything. Booze, wine, beer...everything. I move to MS after getting orders...holy cow, these people are clueless on how other states operate.

Allow me to demonstrate: NSFW in general but this one isn't too bad


I would laugh at that, but it is a little too true. My local California gas station went from just selling gas to now being a head shop as well. You can buy bongs, rolling papers and other things in the store. It also has a Taco truck parked in front of it pretty much permanently. The buck fifty tamales are pretty good.

Yes. Me and you, both. Off the gdamm internet and outside. People are actually not always so bad. People talk to me when I go food shopping. They have no idea what a total dooshbag I really am, I guess I hide it well.

If you agree to the price, you're not being overcharged.

Milk used to be a loss-leader. (For those too young to remember the time before capitalism raped everyone up the arse, that was when they sold something at a loss to bring you into the store to buy more things.)

Around 2004-2006 it became a money maker. I know, I read an article in Discover magazine about it. Bow before my education.
