Use Your Nose as a Finger


This attractive contraption was designed to make it easier to use your smartphone in the bathtub. That's very nice in theory, but does anyone actually use their phone in the tub? I never do because a) I am too busy weeping and drinking wine while I'm in there and b) I fear that if I dropped the phone in the water it would electrocute me, toaster-style. But I guess the finger-nose would come in handy (groan) in situations where when one hand is otherwise occupied — like when you're stirring risotto or driving down the expressway.

I use my phone in the tub all the time, but I always lean way over the side so it's not ever actually over the tub. My phone is one of the most expensive things I own (sad) and I get the vapors just thinking about holding it over water.

@dearheart If we're talking about an iPhone, the touchscreen still works if it's inside a Ziplock.
PLEASE ENJOY YOUR NEW LIFE THAT HAS THIS KNOWLEDGE IN IT

You meant stirring risotto WHILE driving down the expressway, yes?

@Deleted by user I think it's a marital aid for our fingerless vets.

cherrispryte

@saythatscool This is the best you can come up with upon looking at that device?

@cherrispryte: Does anyone/everyone know the old Playboy cartoon where a woman is sitting on Pinocchio's face screaming "lie to me"? This reminded me.

cherrispryte

@Kneetoe YES THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS THINKING OF.

That is one of the most creepiest things I've ever seen. Does anyone else get a "Hannibal Lecter" feel from this??

There should definitely be another part to it that wraps around the back of your neck, possibly using your shoulders for stability, and holds up the phone, so you can have both hands free to flip off anyone who's making fun of you.

While "weeping and drinking wine" is an excellent way to multi-task in the bath, I have to go with "eating cheesecake" as my tub-time activity of choice. It cannot be beat, not even with a stick.

@vanillawaif also "smoking a doob while watching netflix on your computer that is propped up on the toilet."

raised amongst catalogs

@mynamebackwards Ok, but it should be a documentary about cheesecake then.

i have used my just regular nose to do my phone's unlock pattern, check my email, & read messages while my fingers are trapped in gloves/mittens in the depths of winter. also, i once used my tongue? not sure why. great moment in my life.

Kneetoe

@one cow. I'm pretty sure science has determined that your phone screen is dirtier than a public toilet seat.

maths

@one cow. You're inside my brain! Yes, I have definitely done this when my fingers are trapped in mittens and I'm stuck outside walking. You sound really adept at it though. I'm good if I manage to slide the bar to answer a call or get the unlock code in right. I've been too scared to use my tongue in fear I would end up like that kid in a Christmas Story. Thanks for the inspiration!

Many years ago, I saw, somewhere on the internets (Nerve?), a "pussy snorkel." This thing reminds me of that.

ArcherLady

@Tammy Pajamas I saw that also, in Jane, and pee my pants every time I think of it. Sidenote, Hairpin fills the void that the folding of Jane left in my heart. Actually, Hairpin is better.

Also handy for sending texts while at "Eyes Wide Shut" style get-togethers.

Checking into The Korova on FourSquare and texting the droogs to coordinate some old ultra violence.

DrFeelGood

@murdear Yes! Glad I'm not the only one who thought it looked like that. Soo creepy.

annejumps

Sure, if you want to look like a plague doctor.

I will remember this when it's eventually called up as a "look, they predicted the future back in 2011! but only to make fun of it" video. then I'll pause it with my "nose" to sigh in nostalgia.

franticdoll

Ahhhhhh fuck it my fingers can get the job done better.

ohsweet

I can't stop seeing Tobias Bluth in that bath tub.

ohsweet

@ohsweet Oh god, Tobias Funke. Ugh.
