“It’s always been serious” – The Naturals by Sam Lipsyte
Valves with these antique knobs are usually frozen in place by time and corrosion, so that is serious. Like this photo detail.
Hmmhmm, this is a modern German knob. Should it be we are behind the world’s modern technology? ;-) It’s just a little bit broken and dirty – part of a farmer’s irrigation system.
Don’t know about the technology of knobs, but I suspect that these are more expensive to cast than simpler designs. The one in your photo looks like it has broken from twisting too hard because of a frozen valve. Still like the detail of dirt and corrosion here.
