 There are definitely places, though, where there are fewer trees than people.  Heck, I lived in one of those places for a year: Tempe, AZ.  There were probably more people in my dorm* than there were trees in all of Tempe. * = my dorm had 15 floors, btw.
 True.  And it holds for our infrastructure as a whole -- tech or non-tech.  Everything from our cell system to our bridges to you-name-it is awful.  Too many people have been convinced that this is just the way things are gonna be, and there's nothing to be done about it.  So they have, as you say, low expectations. People complain about un- or low employment?  Put the damn country to work fixing the effin' infrastructure!  Will it cost money?  Yes.  Will it put people to...
 I'm trying to imagine the shitstorm that would ensue if Apple did that, and I am finding my imagination lacking in this case. :)
 The post to which I originally responded was removed, along with my response.  
Not sure why my post was removed, as there was nothing wrong with it, IMO.  I'll try again.   One can dislike the PM's policies and his government and think him a very flawed person without being an anti-Semite.  One doesn't follow from the other.
Took me like 10 minutes to remember what username used.  Oh well.  No big deal.   It did remind me how behind I am on comics, though.  I foresee a long day at the coffee shop, many lattes, and some serious Wonder Woman action.
 No, I meant exactly what I said.
 Oh, they definitely do.  But nowhere near the amount of care is put into them.
 The stitching is always off.  But you have to be fairly familiar with that sort of thing, I'll grant you.
 True.  But knockoff bags and jewelry are only "stylish" from a distance.  Once you're within a few feet, a knockoff Birkin, for instance, looks exactly like that: a knockoff.
