Daily Dose of Weird: Milk Gets Redonkulous
Sometimes I look at this world and I shake my head.
Other times, I laugh.
When it comes to this story, I’m not sure which I should do.
Nakazawa Foods, A Tokyo-based company, is preparing to launch its new line of “Adult Milk”, products targeting people “who live in a stressful society”.
These new products, including actual cartons of milk, will be extremely rare and special because they include liquid “taken from cows once a week at the break of dawn as they discharge a lot of a stress-relieving hormone called melatonin during the night”.
Yup. Milk that helps fight stress.
The whole thing doesn’t sound too bad until you realize the company plans to sell their new products for 30 times the price of normal milk, around $40 American dollars.
Milk that may defeat stress? Good. Paying $40 for stuff that hasn’t even been proven to work? Absolutely the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of.
If you’re gonna waste your money, at least waste it on something awesome.
Something like this.
