Surely, the folks who designed the blister Packing machine must have had a sadistic turn of mind. Or, was it the result of some sort of malevolent contest whose winner was the one who came up with the most annoying packaging?
Upon reflection, perhaps the blister pack came in second to the clamshell whose sides are fused together under what must be something like 20 tonnes of pressure. Hospital emergency rooms are kept busy closing up the wounds of people who have tried to hack their way into these accursed plastic bubbles with razor blades, knives, and other dangerously sharp objects.
Fortunately companies such as Arthritis Supplies,Seniors, and others have come to the rescue with products that defeat the evil machinations of Vertical Granular Packing Machine designers.
