And most of it mined in China, no doubt.

How fitting.

I think this was also the year he renounced Earth Day and vowed to the destroy the planet he once loved.

That's so obviously John McCain and not Biden that I'm concerned Meghan McCain will squirt out of it.

Okay, even if it is supposed to be Biden, this works as a joke for either the green face being Biden or McCain:

The fact that stuff can't be repaired is no accident. Corporations don't make money if you fix your shiat.

But the thing is a ton of tech and electrons still works just fine when it gets thrown away. See, we want the latest, greatest, shiny stuff and nobody wants your used crap.

If you paid $1000 for an AV receiver 15 years ago it probably still works fine, it just doesn't support 4K and the latest audio formats or streaming audio or Apple Airplay. If you're lucky you can sell it for a few bucks on eBay or at a garage sale, but those are both huge pains in the ass. So in the dumpster it goes.

TVs, computers and cell phones are worse. At 5 years old, you're lucky if you can give those away.

Our economy is built on disposable crap and it's not going to change anytime soon.

From a consumer point of view, yes. From a production standpoint, to keep things moving in a manufacturing-based economy we need to keep manufacturing things else the factories and knowledge dry up and then as goods become scarce the whole world goes the way of Zimbabwe. It's awful and stupid, and doing it some other way (I personally favour a radical luxury anarcho-communism) is preferable, but it's the business of getting to that point is too messy to bare.

That is supposed to be Biden?

Huh.  I recognized 4 of the 7 no problem:  Johnson, Macron, Trudeau, and Merkel.  Could *not* figure out which one was Biden, even though I'd heard a hint on the radio that he's been made out of circuit boards. I guess that I just couldn't imagine someone making him look like a terrifying badass.

Is it just me, or is his resemblance just not as good as the 4 others I recognized?  Or am I just a victim of my own bias about the man?

Yeah, Gillette and the disposable thing.

Not sure it applies to computers and phones.  Moore's Law has outpaced most consumer demands.  With the exception of high end gaming, CUDA, and mining, it's been this way for at least five years.  Maybe ten.  A 2015 computer or an iPhone 6 will work fine for most people.  It'll be this way until the next big software leap bumps up the min specs.  Dunno what that'll be exactly, but it'll be on the same order as Win3.1 to Win95 or OS9 to OSX.
