Video Demonstration Of An Automated, Laser-Distressing Jeans Machine

May 5, 2017


Seen here looking suspiciously like the machine they used to create Wolverine, this is a video demonstration of the 2,500-watt LaserSharp Denim HD Abrasion System doing its thing. Its thing being burning that well-worn look into a pair of jeans. You know, I remember a time before pre-distressed jeans. I remember a time when you bought a pair of crisp, new jeans and they got distressed through the process OF LIVING YOUR LIFE. I also remember a time growing up when we couldn't afford Sunny-D, so my mom would just add bleach to orange juice concentrate to give it that kick.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to lizzy, for following up with the whole distressed fashion trend sweeping the nation.

    Dude what happened to your jeans?

    Socialism: Wait in line for 12 hours to get half a loaf of stale bread because the ruling class have robbed all the wealth of the nation and divvied it up to their friends and cronies, (then get robbed of your bread on your way home, and there's nothing you can do about it, since you've had your guns confiscated and the police have stopped enforcing any laws). This is happening every single day in Venezuela right now.

    Capitalism: If somebody wants to, they can buy ugly jeans that have been shot with lasers to look like they are worn out.

    I wonder which economic system is better?

    Pure capitalism leads people down a dark and dangerous path where people poison the environment to make a buck. Regulated capitalism can be good but then where do you draw the line? At what point is regulation hindering advancement?

    Pure socialism reduces incentive to innovate, makes it impossible to generate wealth and makes investment a challenge.

    What would work best, in theory anyway, would be a combination where anyone who needs support gets it (and we don't worry ourselves about fraud because we want to make sure our people are fed and safe first and foremost regardless whether they're able-bodied or drug dealers or who cares). But... we try to also have capitalist backbone to generate wealth and create a some kind of class mobility.

    The existence of class mobility means there's capitalist type incentive to generate wealth, invest in things, etc.

    We also need to make sure big businesses and small businesses won't be able to exploit their workers.

    Free-Market Capitalism is the reason the poorest people living in any US ghetto is richer than all the kings and queens from about a hundred years ago all the way back to the first invertebrate.

    Have you ever asked yourself why you just immediately accept the claim that Capitalism needs to be "regulated" by a disinterested 3rd-party bureaucracy, rather than regulated by the market itself? (especially in the age of the Internet) Some worthless know-nothing Bureaucrat in Washington who's never worked an honest day in his life knows how to spend you, and your friends' and family's money better than you do?

    Google Voluntaryism and Anarcho-Capitalism, my friend. All of the benefits of our current system in much greater degree, none of the drawbacks. :-)

    FFS, it was a stupid article about blue jeans.

    Mmmmm, bleach juice.
    These trendy types would really love my collection of old, faded and generally fucked up jeans.
