So this morning, I WAAAAAY overcalculated the time I needed to workout and get ready for the funeral, so I ended up sitting in my hotel room watching VH1 videos for a good portion of the morning.
Trust me, after watching the national news for my entire 90 minute run this morning, I needed to zone out.
So VH1 video countdown - the host is at some toy show. He's with a toy developer, and they are talking about the electronic Rubik's Cube.
Yeah, I said it.
The electronic version basically lets you "turn" each module by sliding your finger across, a la iPhone style.
What with the actual physically moving of the sides so physically stressful and all.
And if that weren't bad enough - when you get stuck, it gives you a hint.
How mentally lazy of a nation have we become that we now need "hints" to solve the Rubik's Cube?
I mean, wasn't the whole point and challenge of it to FIGURE IT OUT WITH YOUR MIND?
Apparently Monopoly has gone electronic too - play money also being too hard to count with one's own brain.
Speaking of play money - No wonder no one raises a stink that our Congress people are too lazy to devise alternatives to or even read the 1000+ page stimulus plan - apparently "easy ways out" are all the rage.
Is this day over yet?
