Why are the good-old-days always behind us? Sure, your TV is 20lb lighter than it was 10 years ago, but you've put on 20lb of weight in the meantime; your old Nokia cellphone was so durable it damaged the floor when you dropped it, but your new iPhone costs as much as a fresh organ on the black-market, and shatters into pieces at the slightest touch.
