Eat, Drink, and Be Merry (James Burke on plastics)

&list=PL734BAB2B716CC777&index=8

Man, I love this guy.

Plastics have made the world "plastic" in the original sense: it changes it shape easily. So now, we no longer buy the thing we need, we buy the shape of the thing we prefer. And when the shapes change regularly, which they do, we begin to want them to change regularly. And the plastics industry is ready and willing to satisfy our demand. Or do they create it?
