The General Dumbing Down of the Human Race
Grumpy Geezer Gripes.
I give you this:
Pods. Kuerig machines et al. Coffee Pods.
It seems like everyone's into da pods.
Did you know that pods, environmental harm be damned, increase the price of your pound of the most expensive java by THREE TIMES. Yeah, 3 times. Plus disposing of those little cups into the landfill/ocean/air. Take your pick. Because: Nothing is recyclable. Think about it.
And on to washing machines and dishwashers.
Pods. More than twice the price of your regular cardboard box of detergent when you work out the poundage and load usage(always overestimated in the pods -h'm I wonder why?).
And they all need spiffy containers of their very, very own.
And oopsy! they poison children because they look like candy! And yes, elders beware. Because grandchildren!)
And premeasured lotioned arsewipes in a pop-up plastic box for those disdaining toilet paper. Septic system or stinky garbage can or sewer-ocean disposal? - take your pick again.
Like some of us can't be arsed to measure our coffee or detergent or toilet paper.
Or have lost the ability.
Or we're so far into idiocy that we're more to be pitied than blamed.
More grinding nasty labour for the Third World.
Less thinking for the so-called First.
