I can't think of a better example of the stupidness of consumer

Consumption and obsolescence should be undesirable side-effects
of human living, not the core reason for existence.

To complete the picture, they should load the resulting debris
into a low-fuel-efficiency car, spend an hour or so in traffic,
on their way to dumping it all in a landfill leaking into the
local water table. To save money.
