    I'd actually say the iGallop is an excellent rehab machine.

    Seriously. I'm not joking. When I popped my back last year, my chiro had me on that thing for 5 minutes after every adjustment. The trick is to keep your feet up and your hands in front of you or behind your neck. So the only thing you have to balance yourself are your lower back and hips (specially the glutes).

    You might squat till your heart content and think you know how to activate the glutes, but dude, this device really gets you to trigger muscles you didn't you had in your hips. I did make a difference in improving my sitting posture.

    Having said that, the commercial is fucking stupid, sexist, and lame beyond redemption. The iGallop is a decent, legit rehab device, but the commercial doesn't make it justice, and in fact, robs it of any legitimacy in the eyes of potential users.

    Whoever marketing genius that came up with it needs to have a family of angry porcupines shoved up his ass for punishment.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Do any of you recall that weight loss/muscle stimulator belt that would send some sort of electrical shocks into your body? This thing was suppose to burn fat and also stimulate muscle growth, ha what a rip off.

    My dad tried it once. It was so stupid.

    And I'd go with Poop Loops--you're interviewing some kid for a low-end job or something, he'll **** bricks if he sees you on that acting like nothing is weird.

    "Excuse me, but is there something wrong with your chair?"

    "My chair? I don't get what you mean."

    "It's rotating; your chair is rotating."

    "Of course it does - office chairs have swivels. They can all rotate."

    "No, I mean it's rotating right now! It's fucking oscillating!"

    The Ab Flex

    I am ashamed to admit it, but I actually bought this piece of crap. Even more embarrassing, I was sold on it by the TaeKwonDo guy that was on the infomercial. In my defense, his nickname was "Tiger."
