Keith Gunura, CEO and co-founder of noonee, said in CNN that, in moving forward, the company envisions the product in more than factory settings-riding on a crowded train, for example, or having to stand behind a retail counter, or picking fruit.

Right, because the people who are paying illegal immigrants $2 an hour to put stickers on oranges are going to provide them with thousand dollar exoskeletons so they can be as comfortable as possible while they do it.

There are some jobs where you can wear a strap-on at work.  I don't have one of those jobs.

Or you could turn it around, put it on the front, and startle your wife.

From that angle it definitely looks like a strap-on.

Actually, it would lend itself to being the top-version of a sling.

I was briefly banned once for posting a picture of one.  Never again.

I guess we'll all reminisce about the good old days of sitting on stools, and the quaint, old fashioned politeness that came from our managers politely pushing in our stools for us at the old widget manufactory.

I can see that Ballsack Conundrum has been well covered here

Beat me to it.  Still my favourite Fark thread of all time.  OF ALL TIME.


I'm also partial to Hot Cocoa Sampler Box thread, as well as the It's a Streetlight thread. There's also the thread that, instead of an actual headline and comments, was descriptions of the headline and comments.

The Lego Movie outtakes had a good idea on a wearable chair.

Stool is the enemy of a strap-on.

You may not believe this, Mr. CEO, but everybody stands behind retail counters because their corporate overlords say they do. God forbid they not look busy at all times.

Just sayin'.
