A detritus avalanche?
Kind of. I was thinking of creating a thread about a corner of my bedroom that illustrates several things that evolved backwards. There's an Odd Couple scene about one of them, where Felix replaces Oscar's traditional wooden desk with a flimsy minimalistic substitute. I replaced a sturdy old sewing machine table that had drawers with a projector stand. The replacement for my old desk/dresser went the same way. It's a steel shelving unit that holds less. Then there's the clamp-on light that I need because the new light bulbs aren't as bright, and there's the $1,100 chair, which in my estimation is worth about $100 and made me hurt my elbow when it hit the unpadded frame (I got it free though), and the breathable garment bags that I could poke a hole through with a tap after a few years of use, which replaced vinyl and PE, and the plastic Vornado FAN that cracked. I will NOT call it an air circulator! But at least I'm modernizing.

Yeah, my protein bread has been getting moldy recently so I decided to put it in the fridge.

It's interesting that even with wood being replaced with other things since the 70s, my 60s era bread box was metal. So was my grandmother's. Mine had a mirror finish and my grandmother's was yellow. They're mostly wood today. BTW, my bread is Panera Multigrain.
