The Pursuit of Laziness

Hi,

I don't have a Kindle, but I just came across blog post on xkcd blog which looks like a nice idea, the search failed to find any previous links to it on this forum, so here it is (with photos):

http://blag.xkcd.com/2009/04/13/the-...t-of-laziness/

There's another blog post about the Kindle earlier in the blog, if you're interested.

Nice find. Though I'm not eager to twist a coathanger into a holder, it's definitely a good idea for someone with the DIY gene.

actually i can easily see the appeal of that since i have faced exactly the same problem (me and xkcd man, reading paperbacks in bed in the same position !), and since i too have a deep appreciation for laziness. however, i've got my own little system worked out involving a pillow. if i fall asleep, i still get woken up by the thing falling over, but i actually prefer that, as i'm a bit too paranoid to want to let it stay in the bed all night long. you just never know what could happen to it. i'll keep that system in mind though...

I'm far too lazy to go get a hanger, study the picture, and try to bend the damn thing into that complex form. Or, maybe I just failed my IQ test.

This is a great idea for someone who's extremely lazy.....and creative!

I have his same problem: How does one achieve the perfect Zone of Comfort?

I love it to DEATH!
