All The Crap They Can't Part With

There should be a rehab center for men who have an addiction to keeping all and any old electronic equipment. It can be obsolete. Keep it, might make a comeback. We may no longer subscribe to the service that keeps it in working order. Keep it, we may change our minds. It doesn't even have to work. Keep it, I may need one of its parts for something else. Beta machines make great paper weights, so I've heard. Outdated computer monitors are the bomb for collecting dust; because that MUST be what we're keeping them (yes, them, as in plural) for since that is all they are doing. I don't know what part of the male human brain this phenomenon resides in but I can tell you this: Women do not posses it. Women come equipped with a particular cerebral lobe that causes our head to explode every time an old piece of equipment doesn't make it into the garbage. My lobe is on it's last leg. And Christmas is coming. Someone please save me.

Yeah, it's gotta be a guy thing. Mine does it too. We have, like, 7 boxes of rags around.

Oh, yeah. We've got those too.

hey! come on! you just wait. when WWIII/global-warming/fundamentalist-terrorism destroys civilisation as we know it, then we'll see you change your tune. all those "obsolete" things you mock so freely will be the cornerstone of the next rising.

but you're right. girls don't have that gene... they have another gene that makes them collect useless twigs to decorate the nest, and to stack the bed. couch and any other soft flat surface with cushions. these will be of no use post apocalypse.

Now see, if you'd have used "beauty products" instead of twigs, I might agree with you. We are guilty of hording by leaps and bounds, lotions, creams, soaps, bath gels, make up...

Post apocalypse we're going to smell fabulous!
