Michael Poland is probably like any typical teenager. Sometimes teenagers take unnecessary risks. Sometimes they play in areas where they could easily die. This is just a fact. Luckily for Michael, his friends tossed him a milk crate so that he’d have somewhere to sit while the ice floe that he got stranded on floated down river. He had to spend the night in jail for endangering the lives of his rescuers and for disorderly conduct. He looks perfectly orderly to me, chilling on his ice boat/milkcrate captain’s chair talking on his cell phone.

Design Sponge did a little piece about throwing a party for kids on a budget. The party is quite elaborate and includes a photo booth, with a vintage milk crate stool for the kiddies. I think I could put my dogs Punkass & Snoop Dogg up there. They’d mug for the camera. –> A Creative but Budget-Friendly Kid’s Party via Design Sponge
Anthony has pimped his Corolla with an innovative milk crate storage rack. It adds extra storage beyond the trunk. It is done with serious conviction and execution. I love it.

A fan of the Canberra Raiders, an Australian soccer team, fell during an on-field half-time competition. The game consisted of catching soccer balls in a milkcrate. The sponsor of the event was a local dairy, Canberra Milk. The participant fell and lost consciousness. He may have hit his dome on the milkcrate in the spill. He is now suing the team for his injury and for the sad state of his life. I one main question: why was a dairy promoting a game where milk crates are in use illegally? –>via LiveNews, Raiders fan sues over half-time catching contest injury and –>via The Canberra Times, Fan sues Raiders for injuries
Despite what we believe, milkcrates are not invincible. Treat them with kindness.
