The idea was, if you don't live in a very small area in sub-Saharan Africa, you're an immigrant.

That, and white protestants don't like non-white-protestants. Racism is just one head of the (more-than) seven headed dragon (which is also a fictional and metaphorical character).



Also, **** che guevara t-shirts.

Cheap labor, whether from catholics, the chinese, or mexicans; is rarely bad for the economy. It just makes people think "damn, those immigrants work in terrible conditions for shitty pay.... What happens when the start writing programing code?! I'll be out of a job!"

You most of the crap is animated right now. You no longer need a factory full of people to run manual lathes. You no longer need a factory full of people running manual mills. Now a single person can run 4-5 cnc mills or lathes depending on how long the cutting process takes. Same with many other areas such as agriculture. It's a shame that **** is getting more and more expensive instead of it getting cheaper. The living conditions and prices should be better than they were say 50 years ago but they are not so where is all that extra money going in?

Put simply, most things are cheaper today than they were 50 years ago. And our living conditions (in terms of purchasing power) *have* improved.

In the mid 60s, a VW Beetle would run you about $2,000, which translates to about $14.3k in today's money. Today, I can buy a new Nissan Versa for about $12k, getting air conditioning, ABS, airbags, a CD player, non-lethal handling, a 5 year powertrain warranty, and nearly triple the horsepower in the process. Heck, how many families did you know who owned two cars in the 60s?

In the early 80s, a typical home computer like a C64 sold for around $600. Today, I can get a fairly competent laptop for $600, except that adjusted for inflation, that's the equivalent of $275 in 1984 money.

The adjusted price of homes has remained sort of stableish, which I blame on them being treated as a commodity and tied to a piece of real estate. But you're getting a lot more for your money these days than you were in the 1960s. Multiple bathrooms, roughly double the square footage, air conditioning is pretty much standard, much greater energy efficiency, etc.

Yeah, but is the quality and longevity of those new products any better? I'd be willing to bet it'd be cheaper to keep an old beetle running after 20 years (assuming it hasn't rusted out ) than trying to keep a 20yo versa on the road. TPMS sensors alone would debilitate the car after 5-7 years, since nissan sensors are among the cheapest made and least robust.

Are new houses built today with chicken-wire and filler better than the houses they built in the 30s? It's scary to see what happens to a new home over the course of 5 years, they're amazingly poorly put together.






However, the new TPMS supplier "Alligator" is offering simple rebuild kits and blank sensors which can either be loaded with data from a broken sensor, or simply swapped in place with a dead one.

EDIT: Severe sensor "crust-ification" can even lead to wheel damage; requiring removal with a chisel. You must be careful though, 'cause if you nick that wheel, it may never seal again.
