    Default I think I need help?

    Saved Photo

    Sitting having a snack and I became aware that with old age had come lethargy.
    For instance although I had eaten a whole packet, and that was the last one, I had not questioned how they were made.
    Are there different Operatives for piercing the eyes/nose/ears and mouth if so, are they sitting at an assembly line "punching" the different holes in as they pass by if that be the case there must be 4 Operatives?
    There could of course be a single machined punch with all six holes incorporated reducing the required Operatives to one.
    Then there is the question of what happens to the swarf ? That could amount to a considerable amount, of potato surely they won't let it go to waste?


    Then upon perusing the packet they inform us that it , "is suitable for Vegetarians"
    Jeez I been giving the dog some!!
    They then go on ( AND SO DO YOU I hear ) to say " not to be sold separately. I am aware that there are an awful lot of people going hungry but surely a single diminutive crisp wouldn't be helpful?


    I feel better now.

    They're extruded, not punched out.
    A society predicated on the assumption that everyone in it should want to get rich is not well situated to become either ethical or imaginative.

    I wonder whether that's more efficient than extrusion from a vat. And what happens to the waste being carted off to the side, there.

    What you call waste is fed back into the mixer and re rolled flat for more punching.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.
