Capitalist self: "I was thinking of getting a new keyboard anyw - WHY DOES THIS ONE COST £259"
Techbro self: "There must be a way to map an unused key to become Backsp - WHY IS DEBIAN SO COMPLICATED"
Luddite self: takes screwdriver, yanks the Backspace key out, cleans out The Unspeakable Gunk
Backspace key: works
Self: disgusted but re-integrated
