As compensation, here is the answer to the pressing question, "What would Next Generation have been like if Filmation had done it."
The food doesn't surprise me. People are starting to become more aware of the Charlie Foxtrot the global food supply is going to be through this year and into next. With the breadbasket for Europe, SW Asia, and Northern Africa currently being fertilized for Liberty Trees and with copious amount of cordite, a massive shortage of normal fertilizer, avian flu in the US, swine Flu in China, and various droughts world wide, there will be global food shortages. Here in the US, we should be OK, not much worse than the shortages of the last two years food-wise, but in other parts of the world there will be widespread famine.
The lead ingots are likely people predicting a massive radioactive rainfall from Russia and looking to build shelters.

Actually I THINK the lead ingots are for casting bullets for handloading . It's one or 2 damned 74 pound ingots per address. Just a lot of people getting them today.

Holy cow, how do you even lift a 74 pound parcel? I can only squat 60 after Covid and deadlift maybe 70. That's without waking with the weight!

That animation was on point!
Carb cleaner and starting spray, and new gas for the mower.

Get close to the package. Position feet shoulder width apart. Establish firm footing, bending with the knees, not the back. Pivot rather that twist. As a matter of company policy we aren't responsible for lifting anything over 70 pounds without assistance but as a practical matter, 4 pounds is not worth whining over when there's no one else around. We carry parcels up to 150lb so if I DID get help on one of those I'd be lifting 75 anyway.

When I was young (and fresh off the farm) I could pick up 90 pounds one-handed and lift it up over my head.
Today...just looking at my cat can throw my back out.

Inspired by Brickmuppet, I deadlifted and squatted 90 yesterday.
