Actually, very surprised. Good milk should less much longer. Date on the bottle is not the expiration, but rather "best by". Pasteurized milk should last longer. Growing up we did not ha e pasteurized milk. It would only less two days at the most.

I'm saying...it's almost more economical, for me, to buy a few individual 12 oz. milk containers, that have a far future expiration date, than it is to buy a big jug of milk which has a much sooner expiration date and will go bad before I use half of it.

Good point

i'm starting the rumour right now!
The last naturally occurring case of smallpox was diagnosed on 26 October 1977 (there was a death in Birmingham in 1978 but that was a lab connected infection) and the world Health Organisation certified the global eradication of smallpox in 1979.

The virus is stored in two labs, one in Russia and one in the USA.

And the milkmaids didn't get immunity from drinking milk. Their immunity came from contracting cow pox from handling the udders of infected cows.

MC I was visiting my girlfriend in Atlanta, Georgia. She was driving around showing me the sites and she turned into the driveway of the CDC. That is where the small pox sample is kept in the USA. We turn into the driveway and drive right up to the fence. All of a sudden two heavily armed guards with guns pointed right at us asked what and who did we want to see. All of a sudden very quickly I heard, "I am so sorry. I thought I was turning into the next right turn. I wasn't paying attention to my driving." They sent up on our way. And not through the gate at the CDC. So I can now tell folks I was at the CDC.

It will last a good long time if you make cheese out of it.
