At first you wonder how they got the difficult part correct and screwed up the easy part. The parts that fall apart aren't really necessary so you can still use the thing. Often it is better stripped of the unnecessary junk.

So why are only the frivolous extras breaking?

This is easy to explain.

They put the bright people on the essential difficult part and the less competent people on the less necessary easy parts.

And the incompetent people don't even get the easy part right.

** The *bright* do the design work.

The idiots do the mass production part.

The two parties never meet- and hate each other.

The bosses have no fucking clue whatsoever.

That IS the world of product manufacture.

The Texas grid isn't really like a consumer product. To even get paid you need to deal with politicians, bureaucrats and regulators during a massive decades long outbreak of Libertaria where no one is accountable for anything. Yet the high tech gas turbines didn't fail. The problem was merely a lack of low tech insulation and space heaters.

Same as the OP issue.

A study of the World Trade Center collapse said it would have survived the attack with the right joints and insulation.

The major difference: not so many lives depend on a consumer item and it can still be made to work.
