I have just opened a new can of paint

and I have come to the conclusion that a new can of paint is a pain in the neck to deal with because it is full.

When a can of paint is full it is somewhat difficult to deal with and it would appear that there is a simple solution for this, and there really is.

The paint maker simply puts the gallon of paint in a five-quart pail.

For me that would make the whole thing a lot easier to deal with except for two things.

First of all, there is a part of human nature that say that they will feel cheated if they open the can and see space in it because they are not getting their full measure. Customers will be disappointed and gripe.

This will lead to the paint company filling the can up and decreeing that it is a new size, the magnum gallon or some such crap.

Where are we then?

Not back to square one, but back to square minus one because we will now have a chock-a-block full FIVE quart can to deal witn.

When you get right down to it, there are some problems where there really is no realistic solution.
