When there is a recession, go for training to improve yourself and be ready to come out running when the economy recovers.
The Fish Agility Training Set will apparently allow you to teach your ‘pet’ fish a series of underwater activities like swimming through hoops, pushing a soccer ball or navigating a slalom course. Instead of their usual routine of eat, swim, eat, swim, eat, swim, die.
The set comes with all the paraphernalia you’ll need to provide training and positive enforcement like a feeding wand you can use to lead them around.
And I thought goldfishes are stupid…

Pool Treadmill

June 25, 2007


In a fast global population growth especially in India and China, there will be less floor space per human to play around… Spaces for sport becomes a luxury, and the elements on our skin are also a concern even if there are natural space, so sport become equipments in air conditioned sheltered rooms. As Dubai starts to build hotel in the seas, and companies turning ships into floating entertainment platforms, even swimming becomes a problem. Whatever…

Only USD4000 and you don’t get to swim with nasty animals and face the elements…
