I'm watching TV and a commercial for something called The Handy Switch came on.
Basically it's a wireless light switch that you can stick it on the wall or do whatever you want with it.
But they were saying things lie "put it by your bed so you don't have to get up to turn the light off" or "put one upstairs so you don't have to go back downstairs" and even more stupidly "put one in your car so you can turn the lights on before you get inside".
Well Billy Mays, how are you gonna turn the light off if the switch is in your car? What's the point?!

Basically what I'm getting at is, and maybe it's only Americans, I'm disgusted at how lazy people are becoming. It's not hard to get up and turn a light off, you just sound pathetic.
I mean if it were for an elderly person who's confined to a bed it's one thing, but this commercial was showing it for every day people.

Anyone see any other similar commercials or disgusted by the laziness of people these days?

I don't think it's just the US...today I saw someone walking a dog.


The dog was tied to his car.
I know people who get the lift to the 1st or 2nd floor of a building. And I mean 20, 30 year olds.

Automatic Jar openers? They repulse me. The only reason jars are still used are so you can achieve that satisfying 'pop' after 30 mins of strenuous opening by hand!

I also am disgusted how lazy people are. I see no reason for that. If I wanted to turn on the lights in my car before I get home, thats cool but what happens when I want to turn it off? Do I have to go back to my car? Turn off the lights so you don't have get up when you go to sleep? How about turning off the lights before you get into bed.

I agree. There's no variety, you can only get on or off. I like light dimmers much better for so many reasons.

Actually, I also like pull string lights. I dunno what it is about them, but I used to have one in my bed room and I loved it. I think it's because I turned it into a noose and hung my Bullwinkle doll from it.

I read that in a Native American voice and got a chuckle out of it.

Edit: ^ Yea, if you're trying to get laid with a girl, you want a dim light. How can you have a dim light if the choice is off/on?

It is kinda gross how lazy people are, but I still would probably get one.. haha

How exactly would that light switch be connected to the light? I can't really see how it would remotely affect the circuit.

It makes me wary of the product since Indians sold something very valuable for practically nothing.

Also, you're thinking of this in terms of Australian girls, James. In America, you want the light switch off. At least, I imagine my brother would.

There are many attractive American women. But since TS wants to go on about how lazy we are, I think I need to imply that we're all fat and lazy. But in reality, that stereotype applies to my brother's girlfriend, I want her dead. The only difference would be that when they have sex, she'd be a little colder.

Meh, lightswitches are a lazy invention in the first place. Back in the old days, they used to just smash a light if they wanted to turn it off.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.

I think I've just stumbled upon the real reason Europeans hate us having guns. You're jealous that we can just shoot our lightbulbs out from a distance. And we do, baby.

He hates lazy white people. I completely agree. They steal our culture and then don't want us in the country.

Nah, British lightbulbs are connected to our souls, so when we want them to go out, we just drink ourselves into an early grave.

I think the TS is overreacting a bit. It's just one of the millions of useless **** that gets sold on TV after midnight. Doesn't really dictate the laziness of a country.

I feel really fortunate to live in a country where I can buy a hand gun at the exact second it becomes legal for me to be drunk. Only three months to go.. then vigilante justice will be mine.

I feel really fortunate to be in a country that has taught me that anything can be a weapon, if correctly applied. It's really helped me develop my creativity.
