Packaging of Death

I found this slashdot article to be particularly noteworthy. It's about the plastic packaging that is regularly used to encase products - the clamshell or bubble type - that is impossible to open without the help of a sharp object.

Having had many painful encounters with these bastardly packages, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. Colbert hits the nail on the head.

At first (quick) glance, I thought this might've been about plastic packaging that are discarded and flow out into the sea, trapping seals, turtles, dolphins, etc. and suffocate them to death...then I realized it's connected to the blood I've shed literally trying to open the darn clamshells.

Leave it to a lady's razor to come up with better packaging. :D

Yep, they're a nightmare... I guess manufacturers collectively decided that harming marine life just wasn't enough; they're now equal opportunity sadists. :D
