@body I couldn't in good faith describe fursuits as snorting raw capitalism, which is something I have described NFTs as. I was wrong, though. There's nothing to snort. It's the delusion of snorting raw capitalism except it has the real cost. It's a cyberpunk blood ritual that doesn't work.
@body I tend to prefer real objects to absolutely nothing. NFTs are an inverse product. They have a preposterous energy cost & result in nothing. They use hardware that's expensive & unethical to produce that's just going to go into landfill once it's time to bot buy the next gen.
Fursuits don't inherently require petrochemicals to produce (there's an emerging field of bioplastics, the only issue with them is availability) they don't require running 1000 3090s nonstop.
@body I dont get the first thing. Fursuits... exist? NFTs are a URL glued to a token made from burning 120 kilograms of benzyne
thank you everyone who helped, things are chill for now
I need £40 to make this bill, pls help if you can
They usually take a few years to get really bad, but once they start on that trajectory they'll do anything to keep fucking everyone over to increment a value mostly decided by the opinions of a group of over-privelaged, under-socialised Europeans in ugly and expensive outfits

@noiob there were other phone manufacturers, and also some of those cases were designed to provide grip on smooth plastic handsets rather than protecting them from falls
@noiob obviously prior to the iphone yeah they were less common but when you can make a thousand shitty cases for less than the device costs you're probably gonna at least try
@noiob if you have a factory already you can sell 1% of the things you make and make a massive profit. Petroleum biproducts don't cost a whole lot
@noiob but yeah manufacturers used to give you things before it became cool to remove a feature every 2 years
