Engineered Obsolesce

by Jason John Bartholomew

How many pieces, coming unglued or just missing, before we agree it’s broken? How many degrees of function loss can reasonably be transversed before the brokenness can’t be reversed and we agree it’s not worth it and can toss the whole mess in the trash without feeling like we’re doing something bad? Might it go faster, of course we won’t tell, if we take a stick and beat it to hell? You’re always so good at keeping the score, how many pieces does it take? How. many more?
