News, but not the serious kind
I’m strangely attracted to you…
So there’s a gadget show this weekend, and some of the stuff is pretty neat. A “robot guitar” that tunes its own strings, a solar-powered mobile phone charger, and best of all, a chair that uses powerful magnets to float in the air.
They say the hover chair feels like you’re “floating on a cloud,” but let’s get serious. That’s fun for what, two seconds? The real fun comes when you use those super magnets for evil:
- Hey Herb, nice new studs in your tongue! You wanna try my hover chair?
- Lola, take out your credit cards and count em while you relax in my chair!
- Dave, you still have that shrapnel in your butt from the war?
Oh crud! It turns out you have to pass some kind of maturity test before they’ll sell you one. Isn’t that always the way?
