Unplanned Obsolescence

Via Kos we learn that someone with too much time on their hands has created a Wiki of Obsolete skills.

Along with adjusting rabbit ear antennas, loading 35mm film, peeling back a lid from an sardine can with a key and using a manual choke in cold weather, it seems that common sense and spelling all make the list.

    Hi Rick,
    I got to the Cs: Cleaning Fish is obsolete? Perhaps I live too close to the Columbia River - I am totally willing to clean and cook a fresh steelhead or salmon. What's also interesting is what is IN the kitchen that didn't use to be, i.e. scissors. Can't do without them anymore because packages aren't easily opened. Fun post - I'll have to check out that link a little more.
    Bye for now,
    Bridget
