Working at an Amazon fulfillment center makes me realize how meaningless life in the 21st century really is

I work at a large sortable fulfillment center owned by Amazon. I'm not going to go off on Amazon's work rules in this post. They are demanding, but offer good pay for unskilled labor and have excellent benefits. The job is way below my education and experience level, but I took the job knowing full well that it would be demanding.

The sheer number of gadgets, gizmos, trinkets, decorations and toys contained in this warehouse is mind-boggling. The number of sex toys alone is staggering.

Each and every day, an average of 70 semi trailers packed full of useless items back into our dock where product is offloaded. Since the inventory levels remain fairly constant, a similar volume of shipments are made to customers daily as well.

True Indology: "This "eminent historian" declares that Mughals invented Rakhi in 18th century. Such blatant lies contradict every available primary source. Anyone having elementary knowledge would laugh at these factually incorrect lies. But in India such authors are promoted by establishment."
