I kinda cringe when people talk about "how we should care about the environment and take responsibility for our childrens future", and blaming "oil companies" for being unethical and cause destruction - while themselves have 0 problem buying new clothes often and refuse to buy second hand stuff.

@selea
Don't forget that many of them rush out to buy the newst smart phone each year and probably don't buy well refurbished phones or buy used.

@selea
What was it Shakespeare said about consistency?

@selea I cringe about that too, as someone who lives a pretty carbon emission saving life (I think that actually, given the trees I plant I have gone pretty carbon negative) I find those even more cringe

@selea You can find some pretty decent stuff second-hand actually. My current laptop is a 2006 model, but after refurbishment it's surprisingly reliable. Certainly not an amazing gaming PC, but good enough for coding.

Plus its modular bay is compatible with a floppy drive which I legitimately own, so bonus for retro gamers!
