how fucking lazy do you have to be
But seriously though about 2 years before my grandad died he fell down a flight of stairs and broke his neck, spent 9 months in traction. Glasses like there were the only chance he had to see anything but the ceiling.
Things like this tend to cover a legitimate need, and slowly get branched out into general consumption - that’s my theory on where the majority of infomercial products come from. Things like the one-handed egg-separator? Exactly like that.
People always assume things like this are laziness but it can help anyone with mobility problems or chronic pain, so it’s ableist and stupid to say it’s lazy…
and even if someone is just being lazy, who cares? It doesn’t hurt anyone else.
This is an invention that would be super beneficial for the elderly particularly those who are bedridden and can’t physically get out of bed, but would still like to read. For the elderly people I’ve taken care of as a caregiver, most of my bedridden clients would desire to read, but they’re incapable of positioning themselves up in bed to do so due to health risks/problems.
