What is the worst designed everyday object?
I'll agree with the commenter who posted:

The tightly-seamed, clear plastic (blister?) packages in which everything seems to be displayed and sold. Everything even slightly valuable, that is. You know what I mean. Memory cards come in them, as do children's toys and disposable razors. They are designed to make theft difficult, without any consideration of the difficulty they impose on the legitimate end user.

I'm thinking of the time I bought a pair of kitchen scissors and it came packaged this way. I can't open these crappy packages without my kitchen scissors! And, even then, I cut or scrape myself half the time.

This has nothing to do with your post, but i can't email at work so....
have you read this

December 05 2006

I haven't, because I haven't seen the whole season of The Wire. I've been staying away from reading anything more about the show, until I finish. I have 10 days off over Christmas and I suspect I'll be catching up then.

It barely mentions the current season. It's mainly about the writing process and the subject matter. I strongly recommend reading it, he has some really fascinating points on capitalism and out society in general.

Ah, thanks. I'll check it out then.

Agreed. I can't open those things without muttering at least 10 swear words.

Type something and click Post. It's that easy.

Remember personal info?
