Hopefully - as I grow older, kind younger adults will take an interest in my welfare, as I worry that I will starve to death trying to unpackage my food... Either that or power tools will continue to be miniaturized. What the world needs now is a small kitchen chainsaw for unpackaging electronics and food et. al., from the impenetrable plastic from hell.
From "Wired" news, please reads: "Tales From Packaging Hell."
One of the enjoyable paragraphs reads:
"The issue has become such a problem for customers that Consumer Reports in March issued its first-ever Oyster Awards, a tongue-in-cheek "honor" for the most
difficult-to-open packaging genres. Topping that list was the packaging that
electronics are most frequently found in, the PVC clamshell."
