This is not a gadget, but a toy called Clackers. I had one, and for some reason or other I survived............


There's no need to complicate, our time is short..

I remember the device, but when I was a kid Clackers was a cereal:


"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)

I want BOTH the Egg Cracker and the Hot Dog & Bun cooker.

In all seriousness, I could have used the Egg Cracker when the numbness in my hands from advanced carpal tunnel syndrome had me afraid to pick up or handle anything fragile. I have some interesting Good Grips (made by OXO) kitchen utensils. I still use them to compensate for a permanent loss of grip strength.

I can't even crack King Crab claws anymore.

How about that electric belt you wear around your waist that gives you six-pack abs without all that annoying exercise nonsense? Yup, that's right! Now you can build that washboard belly while relaxing in your recliner and watching TV. Of course the guys and gals in the commercial all appear to have < 10% body fat thanks to this amazing device.
