OK, you'll have to bear with me with this one.
I want to talk about toasters. Which is the best one? Would it be:
a) a toaster you can buy today, any brand
b) a toaster invented in 1948
For a bonus, how long do you think a toaster purchased today will keep working? 60 years?
Just watch the video below and marvel at how ingenious people were in the past and how much better some things used to be. Sure, we have more advanced technology nowadays but honestly, so much of it is clever but shit. I have a Nest thermostat and it can't even keep the house to a nice temperature as well as the 'dumb' one I foolishly replaced it with. Heck, you can even adjust the temperature and it will decide you are "wrong" and .... argh!!!
This is just simple and genius.
