    Remember when your grandfather said everything was better ? And we did not believe him ?



    Well it used to be better, handphones were GREAT when you just called people and send a sms, but now there outright dangerous in the hands of people

    Everything you buy is made to expire

    Safety rules are not put in place to protect the worker, but to protect the employer

    And another 1000 samples to follow suit.

    I'm tired of the rules and regulations, and rubbish items in the stores ...

    Great, a folding axe head!
    Better off putting a new handle into a broken axe or sledgehammer rather than buying a new one these days. Just don't burn the old handle out, it destroys the temper of the heads.
    I'm still using sledgehammers, axes, crowbars, and shovels from the late 1940s. My old man bought them to clear some land he bought in 1948, after he came back from the big one. Helping build the Burma-Thailand railway as a POW taught him a lot about primitive civil engineering.
    Still using a Sidchrome 1/2" drive socket set I bought in 1973.

    I agree Andre. The old ways are many times far better than anything we can make today even with the help of fast computers to do the calculations. This rock transport in the UK is a perfect example and it uses no fuel other than manpower to keep it running year after year and some maintenance. I do like some of the new tech. I'm a professional drone pilot now and the new drones are awesome so it's not across the board but we should go back to the old ways in many things.

    That's a awsome video

    How about cars, there are still so so soooo many old cars on the road, in perfect running condition, old turn knobs still working, non of that fancy touch screen button

    Then you have those super beautiful new car and technology, until something is not working, a button stops working here and there, then time to sell it cheap,

    A throw away era we live in ..

    Concrete from last century is 3x stronger then present concrete, just because they calculate the cost vs longlivaty ....

    Very true Andre!

    This is my 87' Jeep Wrangler. The only electronics in it are in the HEI distributor and CB Radio. The rest is old fashioned electrical wiring; no computer or circuit boards.
