Blessings of Roland Barthes be upon thee.

Objectivity is mere illusion. Keep your impressions in short leash and don't sick 'em on others at will nor whim.

That said. Leave an innocuous comment or don't.

Still, let us share our subjective illusions together. Per usual. Or read a book once in a while.

Or this semiotic analysis on Naruto...

I thought this topic was simply about velcro, literally.

I hate Velcro.

Using it as camouflage for a "post random shit here" thread makes its merit even more questionable.

Velco would be great if it didn't get so pooey.

Velcro is actually kindof amazing. Some of the higher quality velcro that's available can withstand a lateral strain up to 5000 pounds. I mean it's definitely not the strongest stuff on the planet, but the major benefit to velcro is the fact that it requires no tools to undo and redo any of the hook-and-loops, unlike some other alternatives. Not to mention that it's cheap to manufacture. It's no duct tape, but velcro is up there on the list of useful materials

5000 pounds?! Damn I never knew they had industrial grade velcro.

I know that velcro came about because of fucking cockle-burrs:

Thanks for that helpful info!
