Accordingly, wonder what's going on on the Auckland harbour bridge to require the closing of six lanes... :0 Anyone got any idea?

Why does there need to be a fancy cheese section and a regular cheese section. Fucks me right off when I get to the regular cheese section only to realise I have to go back to the fancy cheese section to get cheese that I think is pretty regular.

Well designed supermarkets have 'em right next to each other. But the Palmy ones seem to all want to put the two sections miles apart. I wonder if it's because people won't buy small-brand expensive cheese when there's cheaper, big brand, similar stuff like those premium big brand cheeses (aged ones and shit) right next to it. I can generally only afford the regular cheese because it's "cheaper" (ha!) but sometimes I like to browse and imagine... And sometimes there's near expired stuff for cheap of course.

Also, an excellent place for cheese is Steve's Bulk Barn. Steve is a nice fulla too. (If his name is even Steve...?)

A well designed supermarket makes you wander the isles as much as possible, picking up crap you don't need. Hence bread and milk in the back corner.

Yes, Steves BB is awesome.

That's well designed from the supermarket's perspective... Well designed, according to me, means all the cheese is together in one damn place :D

Different, but also where they are placed depends on whether they are considered snacks or baking goods, and sometimes they are considered both.

Sultanas are raisins from white grapes, whereas raisins are raisins from dark grapes. Essentially the sultana is a subspecies of raisin.

Babbs is a grapist?
