    things they should have in the world but they don't.

    Bigger tins of tuna.


    The little bite size ones that they have never seem to have been changed.
    i want at least double in my tin and I'd be willing to pay about 10% more.

    Why don't they make bigger tins of tuna?

    Those 'little' tins last me about 3 days, or one main meal(salad) for 2.

    Beer ice lollies.

    When I was a kid we had cider ice lollies. They were pretty good.

    You must be fukking joking stroll.
    There's only about 3 large spoonfuls in a tin.
    And don't even get me started on the tuna salads in restaurants where you have to play hunt the tuna.

    Tunas are fukking big fish, they should make bigger tins to fit more of them into.

    I'm very fond indeed of tuna so this is something that has bothered me for a long time, not too much but a little bit.
    Everything else seems to come in the appropriate sized tins.
    I am more than happy with a large tin of beans or processed peas. Not too much, not too little.
    I don't like crisps but if I did, I'd have a choice of sizes to suit.
    Why not tuna?
    There must be a reason.

    Actually you should probably of mentioned tuna somewhere in the title. I 'm actually quite happy with the size of tuna cans, you can buy big catering ones in Macro or alternativly just use two cans.

    I've said this before but so what, dolphin friendly tuna just does'nt taste as nice
    I have more than the average number of arm and legs

    I know that, but I would like to be able to buy 1 double sized one at a slightly discounted price.
    I can't be alone.

    Also, cans of soft drink should be available in large beer can sizes.

    in Thailand (because they had it in Zambia) - a pack of 30 ciggies. 20 is not enough, and 40 is too many (for one day)

    You could buy a bottle, I think coke tastes nicer from a can though, not that I drink much of it. You can buy the 4 pack's of tuna in most supermarkets at a discount rate

    They should have nuked China. The fallout blowing around the world from those A bombs is about equal to what China's putting out today manufacturing fake Tupper Ware.

    There should be a reliable, matchbox size bullshit detector available, with an automatic taze or ink-spray option.

    And powerfull batteries to keep it going for the day.

    Not real fond of tuna myself; in the US it comes in extra large cans about 2.5 X, by weight; white albacore in spring water...
    Move to the US and you will be very happy with the tuna cans.

    raw fish, what's the attraction? texure of half chewed gum, minimal flavor, the only thing good about it is the wasabi, that tastes a helluva lot better on nice battered and fried cod.

    Sushi's extremely nice, but I don't recommend to use frozen fish for it.
    And no complaints about lack of flavour regarding the local Lab Pla - and it melts in your mouth, add some sticky nrice for chewiness.

    They should make x ray glasses like the ones they used to advertise on the back of comic books that actually work.

    It's the wasabi with nice soft fish.Salmon is the best IMO.

    Yeah, what's the deal with that?

    I'd like decent wine in sodapop-sized bottles -- I've seen them for cheapo wines and for winecooler s**t, but not for good stuff.
