An observation on the nature of things (breaking)

Our vacuum cleaner blew up today. No "please" or "if you don't mind", just a funny noise, a flash and a cloud of foul-smelling smoke. One minute it was vacuuming, next minute it was smelling.
 
Made me wonder about the nature of things. When I was a boy, things didn't break. Mind you, it was always sunny and the school holidays lasted forever, so I guess that's what the subjective view of passing years does for you.
 
My second observation on the nature of things occurred to me as I was writing this. Why on earth would anyone in their right mind sit reading the idle musings of someone they probably don't know (unless you're one of my family) on irrelevant and fairly pointless subjects like this? Blogs are funny things too.
