Hey all, I'm trying to complete an assignment and I need to obtain some examples of products that enhance laziness. Since I'm too lazy to do any extensive research, can anyone think of a few off the top of their heads?

I'm guessing you already know about porn, being that you're Captain Obvious...

But then again, porn could be considered an exercise to many....

Thanks for the input so far, but I would really like to have some products that were recently released or are planned to be released in the last year.

For example, something that is being test marketed at gas stations are buttons that say Coke, or a certain candy bar or bag of chips, and it will be delivered to you while you are pumping gas. Meaning you don't have to walk inside to get these products.

how about being able to do your grocery shopping online. i know the local hy-vee lets you put your order in, schedule a pick-up time, and go to the drive up lane. they put it in your trunk and take your payment.

you never even take off the bunny slippers.

This isn't about laziness, it's about hygiene! Same for the automatic faucets and toilets.

They make towel dispensers that you can pull the towel and comes out and the edge of the next one is ready without ever being touched by unhygenic hands.

Besides, what is the big deal about touching the faucet or flushing a toilet? Unless the door to the restroom opened automatically, you probably go the same cooties from touching the door handle.

I agree, without complete automation its kind of useless.
Here in Toronto, we had that big SARS disease scare last summer and public hygiene is just a really big policy issue here.

My goodness JimN, what you do in the privacy of your own home over the weekend is your business, but we'd appreciate it if you wouldn't flaunt it here on monday morning, OK?

I think its more of a sanitary thing there. The paper towel dispensers with levers/handles that you have to touch. If a public restroom doesn't have automatic flushers I refuse to flush because whats the first thing that somebody touches after taking a leak? unless it's a #2 of course.

I grab a paper towel and cover my hand with it to open the door using it as a barrier between my hand and the nasty door handle

What's funny is that I'm washing my hands after touching the cleanest thing in the restroom.

Electric pull carts for golfers. Is it really that hard to just pull the cart? Now you need a motorized remote control one?

Remote controls for ceiling fans (along with any other remote control).

Lazy Boy recliners with telephones and fridges built into the armrests (I have one).

Cell phones. I don't know one phone number in my phone book that I didn't know before I had a cell phone. Also they make us lazy in making plans. It's "I'll call you when I am there" or I'll call you when I am on my way" I remember telling people "I'll be there at 7pm" at say noon and that would be the last time I talked to them till I met them at 7. Dunno if the last part is lazy more of you made plans and you stuck to them.

Probably the greatest invention to induce laziness is the remote control. You no longer have to get out of your chair to change the channel or even turn on/off the TV.

Yesterday, it was so hot I went and bought a fan w/a remote control so I can still sit on my couch and watch TV and manipulate the fan without ever getting up. There's a remote control for just about everything now.

You have to leave the restroom eventually. Got to touch something.

I usually keep my weiner in my pants, so it stays fairly clean, unlike my hands.

The car stereos that come with remotes crack me up. How hard is it to reach over and turn up the radio, change stations, or forward to a different song?

When I was a little kid, I used to get irritated when my dad would use me to channel surf. He'd make me go over and change the channel, and then it'd be "Go back to that channel. Hang on. Now go to Channel 10. Commercial? Well, go on Channel 27, and then we'll go back to Channel 10 in a couple of minutes."

They had 27 Channels back then?

As the old-time Springfieldians will attest, they had Channel 3, Channel 10, and Channel 27. So yes, they had 27 channels, but 24 of them were just blank static. Blank static that told you the future if you stared into it long enough.
