    I sort of agree with this statement.....it is weird how clean and shiny it is. The picture looks like it is plastic and not wood. Of coarse it is impossible to say looking at the picture....

    MDF is short term product.....glue breaks down after time and the furniture, the cabinets start to fall apart, worst yet....it is not humidity proof..... so the furniture starts to melt, the cheap film of paper wood that they put on starts to fail. And often it is sold as solid wood. It is trash and...

    The panic was more emotional, no one died although we had reports of people going down the interstate 100 miles an hour to get home, ....people throwing their children into the sewer lines, no suicides, no people jumping off buildings....so this worry about causing public chaos panic did not happen....
