    So I've run out of milk, but Milk Rumors is reporting that 7-Eleven is going to have a fresh delivery in 12 minutes. Do you think I should wait or buy now?

    How close are you to Wisconsin. They have lots of cows there. Perhaps you could get some fresh milk there faster. (depending on local.)

    Hey thanks great idea, maybe some cheese too while I'm up there. Now should I go straight to the dairy or use milk.com? Has anyone had good luck with UPS dairy delivery? And would I have to pay sales tax?

    I can't wait until Milk World San Francisco, I can barely sleep.

    Are you lactose intolerant?

    Depends on your current supply of Oreos, chocolate syrup, and how much space you have in your refrigerator.

    Of course course if the fridge is full Yoo-Hoo is always good alternative.

    If you don't feel like putting the money out for new milk, you can always try the refurb store.

    I've got an open gallon in the fridge that I'd be willing to trade for beer. There's still a week left before it expires. I'd throw in, like, a few bucks too if you wanted.

    I'd wait, I hear the new iMilks are going to have better chips.

    Have you checked to make sure it's plugged in? Maybe you aren't out of milk at all, maybe it just needs to recharge for a while.

    That milk container is called a wife/GF with a baby, and if you try to plug her in before she ask for a recharge -- god help you.

    I've heard the new delivery may be a bit sour due to it being produced by different cows. If you can wait until subsequent deliveries, the milk will probably be fresher.

    You should try soy milk. It does the same thing, comes in almost the same container, and even better, doesn't give you lactose problems!

    "Soy Milk Rocks"! -- I think this is a quote from cowdog,, Also a hearty MOOF! I say buy, as long as you have the right place to keep it.

    if you can wait just a few months they'll be coming out with new milk and your old milk will be worthless and will no longer fit in current jugs.

    Yeah but I hear that the Jobs Dairy doesn't even care about selling milk anymore, they're focusing on ice cream. Milk is so 20th century.

    I think the current row of pint sized milk jugs are rotten, does anyone agree? I can't wait until they deliver new ones.

    Well it sure wouldn't hurt to mosey down to the dairy to check out a few
    jugs just for kicks!

    But you might end up leaving some bacon at the counter.

    I peaked in the back of my local store and saw the delivery man unloading what looked like a new type of milk, the jug looked completely different.
