I design and sell gowns out of my boutique. These are invariably one-use products. $20,000. $10,000. $8,000 prom gowns.
I wonder if I could claim "these are guaranteed to last 100 years" and if that would increase sales OR merely enflame whoever's-paying-the-bills even more? Yet those same gullible fish swallow these 100-year-guarantees hook line & sinker.
"They can't print it if it wasn't true." Riiiight.
W. C. Fields remains a genius. And I'm laughing with Drage and Alan, too... yeah, gotta wonder what a 1,000-year-old Walkman's gonna look like, eh? I tell ya, stone tablets still seem like the most legitimate storage media for eons. "Can't read the darned thing, but lookee - all those pretty shapes!"
