Invention

They say that necessity is the mother of invention, but if that’s the case, how in the blue hell do you explain those vacuum-formed plastic containers that just about everything comes in now.

Someone must have sat down one day and said:

“You know, these cardboard boxes are just too easy to open! Why are we making our packaging out of this recyclable, bio-degradable packaging when we can cocoon our products in an impenetrateable plastic shell that will take our customers fifteen minutes with a pair of scissors to get open and then spend eternity in a landfill?”

Because of those few jerk-offs who try to steal everything instead of buying it. It's the same reason that whenever my kids get a toy, I need bolt cutters and a plasma torch to get it out. And then buy batteries.
