yes, someone i know is trying to set himself up as a middleman who buys newly realised technology instantly and sells it at a mark-up, since it's otherwise unavailable, which is capitalism. you may have read about this practice. one problem is that you can incur a lot of violent threats making money this wayDeliveroo and Just Eat clearly provide a service people want, but they also seem like an example of what Mark talked about re: capitalist bloating as they've just inserted themselves between the people buying the food and the people selling it. You can still get stuff delivered direct from pizza shops and whatnot, but these companies have managed to hijack the communication lines.
My dad's quite a good cook, but he's also a weirdo. He eats stuff out of the bin and makes soup out of bones and carcasses and stuff. You mention a chicken to him and he'll start going on about how you can throw it in a slow cooker and make a few day's worth of soup out of the leftovers.
