Re: Police misbehavior thread

You should definitely demand equal treatment out of principle. Otherwise it is separate systems for separate people which is not just.

I mean, you could say it's a ketchup version of worcestershire sauce.

England is very aware of the existence of worcestershire sauce - they are two separate entities with different uses.

Cold chains are a bitch.

Even things that don't need a cold chain can be a problem given that room temperature is a good 10C higher than US/Europe so things degrade faster than their use by date would suggest.
