    entropy happens.  stuff is going to fall apart if we're not here to maintain it.  does anybody really need that explained to them?  lol

    i suppose the details of the how and why hold a bit of interest, but really:  stuff will go to rot if nobody maintains it isn't worthy of a single episode, let alone an entire series.  hahaha

    •  Except it focused on *how things would fall apart. (6+ / 0-)

      And how long some things would last.

      (I actually bought the original book precisely because of that focus--one of the fictional worlds I've played with was a nearly-abandoned city where no one had been taking care of any infrastructure for a while, and for me knowing just what parts of a building would statistically start falling apart first can be rather useful when I'm writing a story set there.)
