Stuff don’t last like it used to…

Yup, Grandpa’ was right: they really don’t make things to last like they used to.  In fact, most electronics are manufactured so they last only a few years or even only a few months-just perfect timing for when the “new” version comes out, you are  ready and anxious to replace your old broken-down beat-up one.  All this to worship our precious consumerist ways:

    This is why I will not eat at KFC today. I just saw this entire video… listening as I got ready for my day, very nice reminder.
