I don't disagree with any of this. If anything I'm lamenting the insistence of US manufacturers on using low grade Chinese material to the exclusion of anything else, to where you can't find quality at any price. I go buy a nicer chair, they'll still use bolts like this. It's frustrating.

And I use Chinese products every day for work. Certain things are great to buy from China, but they don't seem to export quality metal. They could I'm sure, if they wanted to, but as you say, there isn't really a market for it in the west.

It's a mess.
There's smoke in my iris
But I painted a sunny day on the insides of my eyelids
So I'm ready now (What you ready for?)
I'm ready for life in this city
And my wings have grown almost enough to lift me
