I used to live in hotel rooms for about 5 years of my life as a traveling contractor.
Once the work day was done, there wasn't much to do if you didn't want to drink your paycheck away or hand it all over to some stripper.
One night I was flipping the 13 or so channels and got stuck on some stupid infomercial for this revolutionary new ab machine that could be used even in your hotel room on vacation.
Now, who doesn't want washboard abs, right?
I was just looking for pictures to show you all how stupid this little thing is, but I can't find any and I don't remember what it was called.
It was this 12" x 12" green platform that had four wheels, like the kind used by inline skaters, but the really cheap ones. Then it had pieces of surgical tubing that were attached and had handles on them. You put your knees on the trolley, pulled the surgical tubing way out and pinned them to the floor, then you used your ab muscles to scoot the trolley all the way up to where your hands were, and then back out to full extension again.
I used it like 4 times and finally left it in my hotelroom when I changed locations.
I think it cost me like $50 too. Suckered! *party of me*
