Human beings are the most intelligent animals on the planet and the dumbest animals on the planet. I'll leave it up to others to determine the percentages but my guess would be it's about 50/50

Even worse than the ripped jeans phenomena.

I was thinking about a similar scam for the avocado toast crowd: selling vegan eggs from cage free hens. Technically they're vegan because an unfertilised hen will always plop out an egg. You just have to be nearby to pick them up before they go bad.

I'm thinking I could sell them at some farmers market for $30 or $40 a dozen. What do you guys think?

You, sir, are IMO overly optimistic!

If it doesn't fit, force it.
If it breaks, it needed replacing anyhow.

Really? That's a thing?

That's for all those bubble wrapped kids that grew up never getting dirty doing ANYTHING.

Go spend that same money on a $425 car and I'll bet ALL your clothes will look like that in short order.

I know mine were from the age of 14 to about 36 when I finally bought a 4 year old car....after a long trail of $500 beaters.

That was like new, to me.

This is only because man kind has thwarted natural selection when it comes to the human species.

Are you suggesting that man can do things that are supernatural? Haha j/k

However, when it comes to survival of the fittest you may have a point. Man does lean toward tending to the infirmed and as long as the safety net doesn't become a hammock, such action is not only natural to man but also commendable. The problem arises when personal giving and caring for our fellow man become institutions of government... that's when the result is generation after generation of snowflakes.

We interrupt this program to bring you this special announcement...

When I was of school age, the last person on earth I would notify if a teacher found the need to become firm with me was my father. I would have gotten my rear end tanned for having done something that provoked the teacher to react. Today, the teacher, the school, the county, the state and anybody else they could find would be sued, damages awarded, new guidelines instituted and a litany of sensitivity training courses made mandatory... all because a snot nosed kid decided to wise off to a teacher. We bring it on ourselves when we remain silent in the face of such nonsense.

We now return you to our regularly scheduled program.

Nobody gets out of this life alive.

Ahh, the good old days, before the dawn of what I call "displaced responsibility".
