Iffy: A Clear Safe For Locking Your Distracting Gadgets Away From Yourself

May 23, 2019

Zero willpower? Enter this $130 - $210 (depend on lid color -- wait what? this looks like $30 tops) time-locking plastic safe available from Amazon Japan. I believe it was originally designed to keep kids away from cookies until after dinner, but has since become a distracting technology solution. That's cool, I'll just stare at it until it unlocks. Ooooor knock it onto the floor and break it. *picking up Playstation controller* The cat did it, mom. "We haven't had a cat in years." She's just a really good hider - how else would you explain the shredded curtains or all the turds in the basement? "You?" Admittedly, this con sounded a lot more foolproof in my mind.

Keep going for one more shot of what setting the timer on a regretful purchase looks like.

Thanks to v, who agrees soon willpower won't even exist anymore.

    That thing is waaay to small for my kids to fit in it, and no air holes!

    How little willpower does the average adult have? FFS!

    George Carlin said the following about intelligence:

    Think of the average person. Think how intelligent they are. Then realize half of them are dumber than that!

    I suspect this is one of those late stage capitalism sorts of products. A solution looking for a problem.

    Disposable items for adults who don't know how to be adults. Just what we need.
