It looks like Brad hasn't had much fun with packaging recently

I spent some time on Wikipedia trying to figure out the type of evil plastic that is used for this stuff and got bogged down in common plastics and their usages. I now know more about polycarbonates, polystyrene, and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene than I thought I'd ever want to know.

Why, oh why, do consumer products companies insist on using this shit? There has got to be a better way. I'm sure I would have done better at Wii Table Tennis if I hadn't damaged my hands.

That type of annoying plastic packaging is the bane of a geeks life. Handily I received one of these OpenX package openers a couple of Christmas' ago and life has been much better since.
