'Buying Air' .... a strange title for this post you might think, but we do it all the time, buy air that is!!
If you think of all the products that we buy that have air whipped into them to make them look bigger to fill the boxes or packs they come in.  Have you ever sunk your teeth into that lush looking deep sponge cake filled with whipped cream and then it all dissolves into a gloriously tasting flavoured air in your mouth.  No wonder we can eat way too much of some manufactured products and not feel sick until that sugar rush hits us a while later.
Open that huge pack of cereal and peer down into the depths to see where the contents are, yes the box is half filled with air ..... 'contents may settle during transit' ... why don't they give them a shake and let them settle in the factory then we can see exactly how much we are buying with our hard earned money.

All this came to mind when I grated my cheese and had to find a box big enough to hold the block once it was grated.
Half full to full to the top, and all I added was air ..... but at least I didn't have to pay for it!!
