First, that someone thought it up and didn't immediately say, "No, I have to stop smoking at work".
Then, that his boss said, "Yeah, that's a good idea. Let's make it."
Then, that their lawyers said, "I don't see a problem, let's sell it."
And then, that Amazon put it up on their site.
"Laptop steering wheel desk"
It's a board with slots that slip on your steering wheel and is supported about just above the middle of the wheel that you're supposed to use as a desk for your laptop.
Operative words, "Laptop desk" and "steering wheel".
You know. so you can surf the intertubes on that long commute.
The reviews make it even funnier. Most are around 4 or 5 stars.
Currently I am cruising down a straight highway with the cruise control set to 90 and my steering wheel
bungie corded in place. The laptop steering wheel lets me put my laptop in place but it will barely fit my portable TV and I really had a hard time using the desk to iron my shirt and pants this morning while rocketing through the city. Otherwise I would give it a five star.
I need to close now, I see a sharp turn coming y8f7dspufaljdhhfuiljlik
This is my favorite so far
Okay, that's funny.

Since the same Chinese story has been up all day I'll make fun of this defense of Iran.
I am a little surprised, I figured that now that Obama was God/President of Earth.. the US that it would be okay to be on America's side but I guess you can't teach an old piece of garbage a new smell.
Gen. Ahmad Mighani, head of an air force unit in charge of responding to threats to Iran's air space, said Saturday the war games would cover regions where Iran's nuclear facilities are located.
Good, that way we'll know where to go.
The drill involves Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard, the paramilitary Basij forces affiliated with the Guard as well as army units.
Heh. I'm sure that's gonna go smoothly.
Fanatic military/terrorists, fanatic street thug/terrorists and regular army dudes who really, really, really don't want to be there, all mixed up and running around in war games with weapons and heavy vehicles and testosterone levels through the roof. What could go wrong?
The United States and its European allies accuse Iran of embarking on a nuclear weapons program. Iran denies the charge and insists the program is only for peaceful purposes.
Yeah, it's all a he said/she screamed out death to the Jews.
And just in case you think Iran is doing this for no reason.
Israel has not ruled out military action to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
I knew it was the Jews. It's always the Jews.
Also on Sunday, Iran's defense minister, Gen. Ahmad Vahidi, said Iran planned to pursue designing and producing its own air defense missiles, according to the official IRNA news agency.
Okay, that's funny. I figure we'll see some dude photoshopped onto the bridge of the Enterprise. They'll forget to remove the vulcan ears when they add in the Iranian's face. They should hire Slublog.
His comments were apparently in response to the delay in the delivery from Russia of S-300 anti-aircraft missiles, meant to be a key component of Iran's air defense.
Dammit, now why would the Russians be delaying the sale?
Iran complains that the delay is apparently the result of Israeli and U.S. pressure.
The Jews, it's always the Jews.
Unintentional comedy alert
Commenting on this week's war games, a senior Obama administration official urged Iran to engage with the international community.
"We would prefer that the Iranian regime follow through on their offer to engage,"
See, that's why this is so funny. They've repeatedly told the world they want to engage.
With nukular weapons.
Yup, it'll be hysterical until cities go up in nukular fire.
Don't think I'm callous, it's just far too depressing to take seriously and Minitru is sticking up for Iran in articles like this.

I'll take Politico with a grain of salt, but I want to believe this dammit.
So some Lawn Gisland Dem in a "safe" district thought the election was in the bag (I guess he didn't see a need for ACORN)
I had no idea,” he said of the run-up to the vote. “Both my polling and public polling and just the general reception I got from people in the street was, ‘Don’t worry about it , you’re a shoo-in.’”
His first indication of the upset came, he said, when he went to close the polling place in his hometown of Glen Cove and found that turnout was down about 25 percent, leaving him down about 2,000 votes.
“And I thought, 'Wouldn’t it be amazing if I lost,'” he said. It was the first time the thought had crossed his mind. “It was like a joke.”
Second, check out why he thinks he's behind in the counting and recounting of votes
Suozzi said he detected a certain exhaustion in voters and cited Arthur Schlesinger’s theory about "cycles" in American history that alternate between periods of public spirit and of private interest. His sense: Voters are withdrawing from the public sphere.
... ‘Hey, I just want to take care of me and my family,’” he said. “People are not listening to those speeches any more — they’re kind of burnt out.”
Get it? The damn selfish voters want to just take care of their families too much to do what our political, social, intellectual and moral betters want.
Heh. Rarely have I seen so perfectly encapsulated exactly why people hate the gov't right now. The gov't is mad because they know best and we proles keep demanding our "rights" and stuff.
I've changed from my "100% turnover in Congress and the White House" to "100% turnover in all elected offices everywhere".
Screw em all.
Even the freaking dog catchers.
(Although I could be talked into not including people like Sheriff Joe Arpaio on that. I have to respect a county sheriff who tells the Feds to go screw).

You all are welcome.
First, the set up.
The Montgomery County Ethics Commission found that a transgender employee who helped craft the county law prohibiting discrimination against transgender people sought to intimidate people who opposed the rule.
Being a good little lefty from an approved victim class (maybe more than one), it immediately accused that commission of using "KGB tactics".
Okay, so not really funny but immensely predictable.
So here's where teh funny comes in. Remember, it's a transgender person.
Beyer, ... charged she was targeted by the Ethics Commission because of her gender.

Sen. Barbara Boxer, chairman of the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee, had delayed the crucial vote for days because of a Republican protest over whether the cost of the legislation had been fully examined. But the California Democrat moved quickly to pass the bill Thursday, which for the first time would set mandatory limits on heat-trapping gases, without any of the seven GOP senators on the panel present. The measure cleared the panel on a 11-1 vote.
Boxer said the Republican demand for more analysis was "duplicative and waste of taxpayer dollars." Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has agreed to do a full analysis on the final version of the legislation.
I would point out the irony of a Democrat whining about wasting taxpayer money, but I suspect that would result in blank stares from the likes of Boxer as her tiny insectoid brain struggled to comprehend the concept.

I have family in Kingston, Ontario. We used to go visit them a lot, I was a smug, superior American icehole whenever I went but they always shut me up when they talked about beer. I had to shut up and admit they were right. Bud in Canada even tastes good.
So I'm torn on this one, on the one hand, I'll be able to stay a smug, rude, annoying American next time I go, on the other hand, Oh Canada, WTF?
Every Olympics the Dutch set up a Holland House at a bunch of venues where they provide tasty suds of the beer variety for thirsty sports fans.
It's all over Holland House, the hospitality event the Netherlands Olympic Committee and the Dutch government want to hold during the 2010 Games. The Dutch have a simple idea, one that has been a roaring success at every Olympics since Barcelona in 1992.
This year? The Canadians said "No, eh".
Canadian bureaucrats want everyone to know they have power. At all the venues they're setting up petty, bureaucratic obstacles and hassles. The article talks about needing permanent plumbing for a 3 week event, not allowing 3,000 people into a hockey arena and this one takes the cake
Finally, there's Ottawa.
It's insisting Dutch organizers must prove no Canadians are losing out jobs to the 330 Dutch citizens coming in to run Holland House. Ottawa wants all the jobs posted for two weeks, to see if Dutch-speaking Canadians might apply.
Unbelievabile. And I thought the Olympics were when the world came together.
Too bad they forgot to bribe the bureaucrats.
