1. “Stress is nothing more than a socially acceptable form of mental illness.” (Richard Carlson).
How true. Another one, “The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.”, attributed to both Jim Goodwin and Sydney J. Harris, made me think of this gadget.
If stress is killing you, and you really need some more time to relax, buy the ‘Nail Through Finger Toy’. Make a picture of it, use Photoshop to add an Emergency Room background and send it to your boss. You’ll get a few days off for sure.
2. It’s a well known fact that Ham Radio operators are a dying breed. Most of them are looking forward to the date they can retire which, statistically, is never far away. Medical problems attributed to old age slowly start to surface. Soldering SMD becomes impossible, not only because of bad eyesight, but also because of trembling hands. There’s not much you can do about that, but if even cutting a piece of paper is becoming problematic, you could buy the ‘Laser Guided Scissors’.
3. We’re becoming lazier and lazier. We already have remote controls, microwave ovens, all kinds of transportation which prevent us from moving even an inch, and all the food we eat is already caught, slaughtered and prepared. No need for hunting, no need to move at all.
Only one annoying task remained: stirring our cup of coffee. Very tiring, and it might well be one of the main causes of Repetitive Strain Injury. Fortunately the Chinese come to the rescue with the ‘Self Stirring Mug’.
All this, and many more strange gadgets can be found here. Have a nice, lazy day!
