Since this is my diary you can't have everything your way. You happen to be sitting next to me. You reach for the Skymall catalogue in your seat pocket in front of you. You notice that I'm looking through my copy. We strike up a conversation about one of the items for sale. We quickly realize that both of us think shopping while cruising at 35,000 feet in a flying gas tank is the absolute best activity one can partake in as a credit card carrying red blooded all American. We quickly begin an in depth shopping spree for the duration of the flight. For this segment of the flight we're taking a look at the pampering options to choose from for ourselves.
When it comes to trying to make our lives healthy, active and pain free there is no equal to the choices available through SkyMall. There are literally thousands to choose from to meet our every need. Here are just a few we found to wet our appetite and loosen our wallet.
Need an out of this world mobility experience? How about Orbitwheels? It's a whole new way to get around . Helmet not included.
For the ultimate couch potato feel good massage try one of these therapeutic massage chairs. First there is the Inada Sogno Dream Wave for only $7,799.00 or choose the world's only rocking massage chair for a mere $5,999.00. Each come with free delivery and setup!
Suffering from dry eyes? For $49.95 this problem is solved with the dry eye relief kit.
No consumer diarrhea hypochondriac should leave home without their Infrared Pain Reliever. The pain of spending $159.95 pales in comparison to the relief you'll get from swollen joints and tight muscles.
Super-consumerism is a major problem in the United States and increasingly in the rest of the world. The above post takes a humorous poke at this serious problem. Consumption is inescapable for survival. Capitalism is a great economic system capable of providing much in goods and services. Our Church reminds us that capitalism is a great system to produce anything that people can be convinced to buy. It is a terrible system to conserve. We can no longer produce and consume all that we want that capitalism can provide. It is not sustainable. As followers of the Church of the Holy Shitters we strive to practice Soft and Fluffy Consumerism. This means we look at things from a waste-end perspective before deciding to purchase any product. What we buy and how we spend our money matters!
The Church of the Holy Shitters will post articles on our holy S.H.I.T. day ( So Happy It's Thursday)
Last week: 1/23/14 - The Noise in Our Lives
Next week: 1/6/14 - Nature Deficit Disorder
Hoping to add some humor, provoke thought, spark debate, deepen understanding, and shed some light on the fecal side.Remember: "If we really want to straighten out all this crap we really need to think about shit." ( Shitbit by Poop John the First of the Church of the Holy Shitters)Church of the Holy ShittersA secular environmental religion, scientifically based, with a focus on the psychology of it all. Our ego is the culprit when it comes to dealing with climate change. We cannot save the planet. We can only save ourselves. Our current egotistical self-perception makes that prospect a dubious one at best. Meekness, humility and a realization that our shit does stink, guides us on our path to true sustainable living and climate equilibrium.
