Oh… irony, how sweet you sometimes are. You know how the things we say can come around to haunt us? The test of time is a tough nut to crack, and this time, it’s all about failing.

The Facebook page "Posts that did not age well" is a hell on earth, showing how quotes, comments, posts, and everything you saw online some time ago did not age gracefully. In fact, some of the things look so utterly ridiculous in the current light, it may make you wonder what the heck they were thinkin’. So let’s go down this cringy memory lane, and after you’re done, be sure to check out part 1.

This did not age well at all.

If humans could see the future, this post would probably have not existed. Because there’s nothing quite like failing the test of time. All the things you believed and said look more or less absurd in retrospect. Unless your job is predicting the future for a living.

Mysterious as it sounds, seeing what comes next is complex, critical, and quite a different job than the myths suggest. Paul Saffo, a technology forecaster in Silicon Valley, wrote in a piece for Harvard Business Review that “prediction is concerned with future certainty.” And that alone sounds quite paradoxical.

Paul explains further: “forecasting looks at how hidden currents in the present signal possible changes in direction for companies, societies, or the world at large.” Thus the goal of forecasting is to “identify the full range of possibilities.”

Plus, “unlike a prediction, a forecast must have a logic to it,” says Paul. That means that the forecaster must always be able to articulate, explain, and defend this logic. “That’s what lifts forecasting out of the dark realm of superstition,” argues Paul. In the end, forecasting is “nothing more (nor less) than the systematic and disciplined application of common sense.” And that common sense is something we all have.

I read an interview sometime in the recent years with the son of the man who invented plastic bags. He said that, if his father knew that people use a plastic bag once and then immediately throw it away, he would have been horrified and saddened. The reason the man invented plastic bags was specifically so they could be reused over and over again

Disposable bags today are far thinner than what he came up with, and uses a tiny fraction of the resources to produce. And they aren't all used once and thrown away; lots of people keep plastic grocery bags and reuse them to pick up dog poop, line trash cans, etc. In fact, if I used a reusable bag for grocery shopping, then bought a box of plastic bags for dog poop, I'd end up using more plastic.

Plastic isn't the problem. People who throw it out are.

Plastic takes a lot of energy and resources to produce. It can't be reused forever. Many plastic items are used once, such as laundry detergent bottles as just one of a multitude of examples. Get your head out of the sand.

Plastic: How to destroy a planet.

Roxy Eastland
Community Member

Plastic actually did have huge environmental advantages; substances it replaced when it was first introduced include ivory and shellac. Even now sturdy plastic that can last for decades, and then be recycled, can be a more environmentally friendly option than felling trees (lumber plantations are not good for the environment) or mining metal. The big problem is single use plastic that cannot be recycled, and for that industry is culpable and should be resolving.

The problem with plastic grocery bags isn't that they are thrown away. The problem is when people just chuck them out into the environment instead of throwing them away properly so they go to the landfill. They take up almost no space because they are so thin. When they are blowing around the city, they get stuck in trees. In coastal areas they blow into the ocean. (But the majority of plastic garbage in the ocean is fishing nets.)

the inventor of the plastic bag meant for it to be environmental friendly, since people would be using it over and over

A lot of people underestimated and still underestimate the dangers of Corona and they think that the media are lying to them. ( Wonder who gave them that idea??). If history repeats itself and people behave like they behaved during the Spanish Flu, there are going to be plenty mass graves all over the world.
