20,000 Leagues Under the Sea – The Ride

I’m nearly certain I found this at BoingBoing but I have no idea.

I am sad to see that the ride is gone; I went on it in the late 1980s. And, by odd coincedence, I got the DVD of said film at the library the other day. I don’t know if I’ve actually watched it, before. But I did have the record-book of it.

Milk Bags V.20

Those Clever Canuckistanis sometimes store their milk in Milk Bags!!! Who’d a thunk!

Actually, I remember getting milk in a bag when I lived in Hungary. You’d drop it into a special pitcher/holder and snip off the corner.

World.org confirms that I’m not alone in thinking this goes beyond the confines of Li’l Old Canada.

UPDATE 03.28.05 : Much more information on Milk Bags

A lot of advertising: Hungarian TV commercials from the 1980s.

A bit before I was there, sadly.

Via spring-with-one-name-twice, of course.
