Things were better in the past, here’s a few examples.
5 - SST
The dream of supersonic commercial flight is over, deal with it and enjoy your boring twinjets.
4 - Space Shuttles
We’re back to rocket launched capsules, like in the 50’s, apparently.
3 - Proper BMW’s
Enjoy your luxury bloated crossovers with fake engine noise.
2 - Tall towers
Unless you live in the UAE, 50 stories is deemed “Sufficient”, thanks to lousy fire depts and insurance costs.
1 - Proper RWD, simple wagons.
You can’t fix your drive-by-wire “crossover” by yourself anymore and keep it for 25 years.
Keep up with the Joneses and buy a Ford Escape, and deal with its planned obsolescence in 8 years, or just lease it like phony people.
