I have seen posts articulating what the next acquisition may and will be such a knife, firearm, bag, etc. Have we become such a material acquisition-driven society? Perhaps so because of the wherewithal that we have developed that in-turn fuels our economies that in-turn pushes makers into making more variety for the sake of placating our never-ending appetite for new features of the same product. An endless loop. I see new members constantly adding hordes of new items to their battery of "stuff" (as late comic George Carlin calls it). Yes, I've gone through this cycle, then thrown or given away or sold the things that just linger or occupy a "junk" drawer. I can justify acquiring things for the sake of improved safety or enhanced efficiency associated with disposable items such as paper towels or electronics. But then again one can argue that everything is disposable and subject to improvement & enhancements. I'm in a point in my life that I can afford to acquire 100% of my needs and 99% of my wants BUT, I see no desire to acquire beyond 5% of my wants so the "NEXT" concept has dwindled for me. This is no diatribe of others' purchasing habits and I'm not about to formulate then publish an economic scale of the continuum of acquisition habits of modern consumers. There is no point to this post and there is no question asked that I have not already answered myself to my complete satisfaction.
