Oh I missed the whole 'blind bag' nature of them, yes that's properly scummy.Fair, but I see a major distinction.
The difference is that you were collecting a narrow niche of things you liked. But what if you had to buy them in sets of 3 or more, and not only would you not even know which specific ones you'd get because they were a "surprise" type toy, but also the cereal boxes were just a small selection of items which also included things like Hellman's Mayonaise, a Mounds bar, a Subway sandwich, and Tide laundry detergent. Where the purpose of this line is to get people to buy waaaaaaaaaaay more than they ever would otherwise, to get the set they might really want. The whole marketing around them is a like M.U.S.C.L.E. figures or hotwheels, for the "collect them all"-ness, but with the extra layer of loot-box scumminess.
I 3D printed a cover for the buttons on the TV/monitor my parents use with their PC so the only exposed button is the power button. Otherwise they would constantly change the source or get stuck in a menu and be unable to figure it out. At the time they would've only been 60 and 62.How ze føck does an 86 year old man manage to switch the audio output of my AVR from surround speakers to integrated (into the connected screen) speakers without even finding a way to switch that screen on?
