    Come on...people are tired, paid with pennies per hour, now there is also this stupid covid situation, there is a huge demand from the market, hence huge pressure on these factories to make more products, faster. What do you expect?

    Damn. I mean do you get to win anything for finding this inside your card?

    Has to be something... Mostly joking...

    And I could not imagine having to take my card apart from the beginning of my purchase because of interior cooling. Maybe?

    I mean the only appeal of a FE card is the price tag, but with that said one can expect interior parts I see.

    Now FE stands for Finger Edition, imagine finding a sock in the Foot Edition.

    for most the attraction to a FE is the lower cost of and greater chance finding a waterblock.
    ironically the only FE i like the looks of (by itself) is the RTX 3090/80/70

    every time I hear Dutch language it sounds to me like how a Finnish native who heard a few sentences of English would try to imitate it.

    I would say a joke about what you stated, but I'll let the inuendo at bay.
    No, it's not, it's a finger "glove" all those people on the assembly line have to wear those.
    Smartphone repair techs also wear those. I wore those on my fingers when I repaired smartphones.

    First and foremost, those prevent human skin contact on chips, screens or whatever sensitive electronic parts.
    Second, when repairing, one doesn't want to touch a foreign smartphone directly on one's skin, a smartphone or a keyboard are infinitely dirtier that your average toilet seat.

    Defects happen, as long as warranty works (it doesn't) should be ok.

    I know, right?!

    If it was made in the USA, would the thimble be branded "Durex"? Have some dignity! /s
