Detachable Six Pack Rings

Better for the enviroment

When drinking something that comes from a plastic ring pack, people recommend cutting them with some scissors, so animals wouldn't get stuck in those when they throw them away, but sometimes people don't have scissors when they drink.

So I think the solution would be to make them detachable, the plastic rings would feature a line that you could snap of with your hands to cut the ring, or you could try pulling the can and the ring would snap off, and no need for scissors.

       I agree they should only be removable by breaking the perforation.

       Or just set fire to them and watch them burn.

       //just set fire to them and watch them burn// the environment, or just the animals?

       All of the above.

       I think someone who is sufficiently unevolved not to understand the basic concept of a litter bin is very unlikely to be competent with a pair of scissors.

       How soon they forget ... need we remind you of the unfortunate "incident" in the Third-Best Pineapple Conservatory nvolving Mrs. McGrembly and Tarplin the junior Aspidistra trimmer ? We said from the outset that Tarplin was not sufficiently evolved to qualify as inside staff; only two of that clutch hatched and he was the only one to pupate successfully. Even Sturton thought it was a bad idea.   

       How anyone (anything ? ) can mistake an elderly Scots cook in a green dress for a rampant aspidistra is not clear. A triffid pehaps, but not an aspidistra. The dress wasn't even very green (although it was hard to tell, what with all the bloodstains and all).   

       Strange how the only part he didn't eat were the big toneails. Must be some funny religious thing.

       I'm surprised at [Max]'s familiarity with these plastic things - can you get them for decanters?

       //the unfortunate "incident"...//   

       Now you're making fun of me. You know full well that we only have two Pineapple Conservatories and that, since the economic downturn, the trimming of the Aspidistrae has been handled by the viticulture trainee. I happen to know that you are _very_ familiar with this trainee - the signs alerting guests to the CCTV are quite clear, so you have only yourself to blame.   

       //surprised at [Max]'s familiarity with these plastic things//   

       I have seen some members of the staff's staff with them.

       I prefer not to look at any man's staff, especially not when he's doing something questionable with a plastic ring.

       Tone, [Rayford]. Try to preserve the tone.
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 13 2014
  

       By noticing the lower orders? I don't think so.
pocmloc, Oct 14 2014
  

       [pocmloc] Yes, I get bored towards the end of a cricket match too
hippo, Oct 14 2014
  

       Ah... hmm.. oh right. Let me go off and practice a bit more... 'the rain in Spain...'
