     from the Ted talk series

    "It takes an entire civilization to build a toaster.
    Designer Thomas Thwaites found out the hard way, by attempting to build one from scratch:
    mining ore for steel, deriving plastic from oil ... it's frankly amazing he got as far as he got.
    A parable of our interconnected society, for designers and consumers alike".

    That's the kind of people I love to be in company with  Big Grin 2
