A few days ago I mentioned my experience as a child with newly invented plastic. Today plastics and other synthetics have taken over the world, at least in developed countries.

Just imagine what would happen if they were all to suddenly disappear.

People would be walking around naked, or with transparent clothes.
Car seats and other vehicle parts would fall apart.
Mattresses and other upholstery would collapse.
Fires would start because some wires had no insulation.

Just listing the things in my own home made of synthetics would make this a VERY long post, and I can’t imagine how many other things in the world would disappear or collapse.

In our world we’ve become dependent on synthetics.
