Of all of the crazy things, why doesn’t someone make a wall-plugin that makes the air smell like food?

This could be a long list, but here are some ideas:

  • Fresh Brewed Coffee
  • Bacon
  • Roast in Oven
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Fudge Brownies
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Baking Bread in Oven

Why hasn’t someone done this already?

We’re always hearing that we need to get more exercise but our busy schedules seem to get in the way.  Gym memberships can be a great motivator for some, but can be difficult to maintain over time.  And what about time with your family or significant other?

Here’s an idea to promote both a healthful lifestyle and time with your loved ones: consider purchasing a Wii Active or Fit system or even a used Play Station II system with Dance Dance Revolution for a lower cost option. These are video game systems that you can use for either personal workouts or fun physical games & competition with your loved ones.  And many video game stores will offer refurbished models at a lower price that even come with warranties.

It won’t matter what the weather looks like outside, you won’t have to drive anywhere and you will be spending quality time with your loved ones and having fun as well as improving your health!  How can you beat that?

  • men
  • women
  • employed
  • unemployed
  • black
  • white
  • age 15-24
  • age 25-64
  • age 65+
