    ... off of another site! Check this out - the Hawaii chair!


    Oh Yeah! I can just see all of us at work sitting in these while we try to work - everybody being sick while they try to pick themselves up off the floor!! It's probably avaliable at Walmart, in the aisle that has all the other "Not sold in stores" stuff!

    Well, darn! I just posted the link to the YouTube video of the infomercial and all I'm seeing now is a big orange square!

    Maybe you can google it or something.

    Never mind ... :(

    Donna, for some reason I couldn't see the image from the link you posted, but I found another one.

    That is just wierd! It's a chair for those people who can't sit still, but just want to be lazy about it.

    Thing is, I'm one of those people who can't sit still, and I think that thing would drive me round the twist (no pun intended), in 5 seconds flat. I need to do my own fidgeting, thank you very much!

    Thanks Trinity!

    Isn't that hysterical? And apparently they're SERIOUS that this thing 'works your abs for you' while you just sit there - I thought it was a joke but it's not! How could you use this at work, trying to use the computer or even just trying to write while you're being slung around in your chair? Or can you just see yourself going in to have a serious talk with a banker or someone like that, or your clergyman about some troubling personal problem ... and they're being flung around in one of those while they talk to you! It's like a skit off of "SNL", or trying to ride one of those mechanical bulls! It would make me sick, kind of like being on the Teacup ride at Disney World!

    Actually, to me it looks like one of those things that are probably sold in one of those "adults only" stores, next aisle over from the blow-up dolls! Not that I've ever been in one of those stores, mind you, but you get my drift.

    I imagine myself sitting in the boardroom at work, 20 of us around the table whipping around like one of those dashboard hula girls. Just makes me shake my head. (Actually, I guess it would!)
